Winning designers from "Project Runway" include Jay McCarroll, Chloe Dao, Seth Aaron Henderson and Christian Siriano. Henderson is one of the show's two-time winners, as he also won an all star season.
Jay McCarroll won the first season of "Project Runway," although he had to turn down two prizes, $100,000 and a Banana Republic mentorship, due to contractual issues. Since the show, he had a fashion line and blog. He also won "Celebrity Fit Club" in 2010.
Chloe Dao was the second season winner. After the season, she expanded and changed the name of her clothing boutique. She has also been a judge on the Vietnam edition of "Project Runway."
Seth Aaron Henderson won the show's seventh season, and then also won the third season of "Project Runway: All Stars." Henderson uses organic fabrics and recycled products in his designs, which focus on sustainable clothing. He has also been a casting judge, a role which he had during season nine when he substituted for Tim Gunn.
Christian Siriano became the youngest winner of "Project Runway" when he won the fourth season at 20 years old. He launched his fashion line, Christian Siriano, in 2008, which had $5 million in revenue by 2012. He has designed clothes for several celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Christina Hendricks and Emily Blunt.
