Kimber Richardson from "Project Runway 2016" is one of the contestants in Season 15 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is a 42-year-old designer from New York City. She was raised though in Houston, Texas.

Three years ago Kimber Richardson decided to take a leap and do something she had always dreamed of — become a designer. She recently moved from Texas to NYC and is pursuing her passion there. With training from the Art Institute of New York City and a family of seamstresses, she has fashion design in her blood.

Richardson's favorite designers are Rodarte, Marchesa, Valentino, Stephane Roland and Vera Wang, while her style icon is Miroslava Duma. Richardson's favorite past "Project Runway" designer is Christian Siriano.

Here is an interview with Richardson:

When did you realize you had designer potential?

I realized I love fashion as a kid I decide do to take a leap three years ago.

Strengths as a designer?

Sewing, patternmaking and I have a strong eye for fashion.

Weaknesses as a designer?

Sketching is my weakness.

How did you end up auditioning for "Project Runway"?

The fashion coordinator at my school sent me the email about auditioning.

Challenge you wish they'd bring back?

Flower power.

Challenge you hope they don't?

Go big or go home!

What's your take on team challenges?

I love team challenges. This way there's a lot of input on an even greater design.

Do you think you can win "Project Runway"?

I know I can win "Project Runway." I know that I'm an awesome designer and that I will push myself beyond what my body thinks it can an will do!
