After battling it out in the workroom and on the catwalk, 28-year-old designer Daniel Vosovic is named the winner of Lifetime Television's two-hour special, Project Runway: All Star Challenge. The challenge brought fan favorites Chris March, Jeffrey Sebelia, Korto Momolu, Mychael Knight, Santino Rice, Sweet P Vaughn, Uli Herzner and Vosovic needle to needle as they showed off their design skills to create a "four collection look" under the watchful eye of mentor Tim Gunn. Their creations were judged by supermodel and host Heidi Klum, top fashion designer Michael Kors, fashion director for Marie Claire Magazine Nina Garcia and guest judge/designer Diane von Furstenberg.
Vosovic walks away with a $100,000 cash prize furnished by L'Oreal Paris and Garnier Fructis and the ultimate bragging rights as the Project Runway: All-Star Challenge winner. Vosovic, season two runner-up, will unveil his first collection during New York Fashion Week in February 2010 and recently published the book Fashion Inside Out which provides a thoughtful overview of the fashion design process from start to finish.
Hosted by supermodel and fashion maven Heidi Klum, the hit series Project Runway provides budding designers with an opportunity to launch their careers in fashion, under the watchful eye of mentor and Liz Claiborne Chief Creative Officer Tim Gunn. The wildly successful competition reality series has proven to be one of television's most talked about shows and was the highest-rated unscripted competition on all of cable for 2008.
