The last knitwear designer to appear on “Project Runway,” season six stitcher Gordana Gehlhausen, didn’t take home the $100,000 prize or the additional spoils that come with reaching the top of the fashion reality show heap. But she did place in the final four and returned for another chance to win the top prize in “Project Runway: All Stars” (she failed to win “All Stars” as well).
Enter Joseph Aaron Segal. The Framingham native, who now lives in Providence, is hoping that his knitwear expertise will take him slightly further than Gehlhausen on “Project Runway.” Segal, an adjunct professor at Rhode Island School of Design, creates fashion under the monikers JAS and Pretty Snake. He will appear on Season 11 of “Project Runway,” which starts Jan. 24 (also Segal’s 31st birthday), on Lifetime.
