Alicia Hardesty from "Project Runway" is one of the contestants in Season 9 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is a 27-year-old designer who grew up in Brandenburg, Kentucky, and is currently living in Los Angeles, California.

Alicia Hardesty ("Project Runway") went to Colorado State University for her design and production training. She didn't really think about her potential as a designer until halfway through her design program. She was just following what she wanted

to do, and that's all she knew. She knew she was creative and not afraid to take risks. She won a target market award for her senior design line. The first full garment she ever made from scratch, including the pattern, was a pair of pants, back in school.

She considers herself to be adaptive and a problem solver. She can create with all kinds of materials, for various target markets and from various sources of inspiration. She has trouble though in keeping it simple.
She always has to remind herself not to force too many ideas into one piece.

Her influences in the past included art, mixed media and other cultures. Androgyny is more of an influence for her currently, as well as other creative industries, films, music, etc. When she's designing, she likes listening to Jack White, reggae (Bob, Damian Marley type), Florence + the Machine, classical mix, Kings of Leon, Rage Against the Machine, Jay-Z, M.I.A., Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Nappy Roots and John Butler Trio.

She's most proud of pieces that she's done for Original Tomboy. Her favorite designers are Chanel and Ralph Lauren. She considers a dope jacket — leather, denim, whatever, as long as it fits well and looks damn good — to be a fashion must. Her favorite style icon is Tilda Swinton.
