We've watched them sew, sweat, fight, cry, and initiate model walk-offs — and now we've dug around to find out what they're up to now. After eight successful seasons, a ninth season premiering July 28 on Lifetime, and an all-stars competition in the works, it's pretty safe to say that Project Runway fever hasn't exactly waned. So what happens after you get "auf'ed"? Click through to see how all of the designers are making their way post-Project Runway.

Now that Project Runway has closed out its fifth season by naming a new winner, it seems like a good time to look back on the Runway champions of past and present. Some (Christian Siriano) have truly embraced their 15 minutes in the spotlight; others (Chloe Dao) have kept somewhat of a lower profile. While we're waiting to see how Leanne uses her newfound fame, tell me: Which of Project Runway's five winners has been your favorite?
If you're tired of carrying around that same old lame nylon DS case everywhere you go, I have good news for you! There are other options besides the kiddie-fied cases that have pics of Yoshi and Mario on the front.
And trust me, once you get something a little more fashionable, you won't be as embarrassed to whip out your stylus on the bus and start gaming away! Check out a few of my favorite (and fashionable) DS Lite cases in this slideshow.
She may be known for winning the second season of Project Runway with a collection of women's evening wear, but these days Chloe Dao is all about making gadgets look good.
Chloe has launched an exclusive line of laptop and gadget cases with Pacific Design. It features versatile cases for iPhones, iPods, laptops, popular phones (like RAZRs) and portable DVD cases.
I like the cases because they are colorful without being loud and obnoxious (they are covered in plain pinstripes and checkers and colorful pink, yellow and white retro prints.) They range in price from $19.99 for phone cases to $29.99 for laptop cases, which when compared to other designer gadget cases is a total steal. (Thanks for the tip, Fabsugar!)

We know it's one of your favorite guilty pleasures! After watching the best of last season's Project Runway contestants claw, scratch and stitch their way to the top, you may be wondering how to bring home some of their latest projects like this "Chloe Bag" designed by Season 2 winner Chloe Dao
Speaking of Chloe Dao, after she left the lights and cameras of NYC to go back to her hometown of Houston, TX. Her boutique, Lot 8, is flourishing and while she didn't end up taking Banana Republic's one-year internship prize, she is enjoying amazing success following the end of the show. While Chloe sells most of her limited edition items from retail boutiques, some of Chloe's t-shirts and signature wrap-around tops are available online.
