The Project Runway judge gave birth 10 short weeks ago and is out and about at fashion week. How she’s dealing with breastfeeding and her new baby boy.

Nina Garcia is a hard-working mommy. In the midst of attending all the top shows at New York Fashion Week, the fashion director at Marie Claire magazine is also taking care of her new baby boy, Alexander, 2½ months. How does she do it? “I’m trying to stay as organized as I can,” Nina, 45, tells at the Tommy Hilfiger show on Feb. 13. “Lucky for me, I don’t live far so I’m running back and forth so I can be with him and feed him.” Now that’s dedication.

Nina had trendy pregnancy style!

Nina, who also has a 3½-year-old son, Lucas with husband David Conrod, is basking in baby joy. “I’m so proud of him. He is cooing a lot and smiling. He’s gorgeous,” she says of Alexander. “I am the proudest mom.” And not only is she a proud mommy at home, but on the catwalk as well. Nina is supporting the alumni of Project Runway who are showing their collections at fashion week. “I’m trying to make it to as many of their shows as I can,” Nina reveals. “Christian Siriano had his show and Irina Shabayeva and Daniel Vosovic are showing. But I’m worried if I make it to one and not another’s that people will think I’m playing favorites. But I have a baby to take care of first!”

Nina shares her pregnancy fashion tips. Exclusive!

And speaking of babies, you would never know Nina gave birth to one two short months ago! By the look of her post-baby body, she could model any outfit down the runway! “I always feel like I’m lighter and I look better in the morning. Then by the evening I feel like I’m two sizes heavier!” she admits. “I wear a lot of black. I was pregnant last fall so now none of my fall or winter clothes fit me and it’s impossible to find any in stores since it’s all spring items now. So I wear the same thing a lot.”
