You read the title, you know this name. Michelle Lesniak is the very creative designer who won Season 11 on Project Runway. A person with a huge heart and lots of talent.
I was blessed to meet Michelle at Ferrari Fashion Week South’s “Eye Candy” event, which kicked off a full week of runway shows. I wasn’t able to attend the Friday show, which featured designs by Michelle and 4 others from Project Runway; however, I have an exclusive, super fun Interview of myself and Michelle. What a sweet person filled with so much fun and spunk. Enjoy.
Here’s a little snippet on Michelle from her website: www.michelleLesniak.com.
–Season 11 winner is known for her strong aesthetic and quick wit. Michelle wowed both judges and viewers with her tenacity. Nearly voted off, Michelle fought back to reveal one of the most cohesive and distinctive collections seen on Project Runway to date.
Michelle trained at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, but couldn’t keep her hands off of textiles. Self-taught in both garment design and leather working, her love of art, print, texture, and music comes through to her final designs.
Michelle is committed to staying in her native hometown of Portland. Dedicated to local manufacturing and ethical business practices, Michelle is undoubtedly playing a key role in shaping and growing the Portland Fashion Industry.
There you have it, the lovely Michelle Lesniak. Until next time…#youcansitwithme
