NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK (HawaiiNewsNow) - By Jolanie Martinez

Hawaii designer Kini Zamora is competing in the Season 5 finale of Lifetime's "Project Runway All Stars," which airs Thursday night.

It's not the first time he has made it to the finale of this national competition. Zamora placed third in season 13 of Project Runway.

He's back for All Stars, which features designers from previous seasons of Project Runway. In the show, they get another chance to win with new clothing designs and challenges.

The Hawaii community is supporting Zamora on social media with the hashtag #teamkini.

In a news release, Zamora said he's thankful for the aloha.

"Thank you so much for fueling my energy to design every day and supporting me," he said. "Without your support, love and motivation I really wouldn't be where I'm at both on and off the screen. I really can't thank you enough."

The finale starts at 7 p.m. on Lifetime.
