Sebelia Wins Project Runway

Los Angeles-based designer JEFFREY SEBELIA was crowned the winner of the third season of US reality fashion competition PROJECT RUNWAY during the show's finale on Wednesday night (18OCT06). The 36-year-old was up against fellow designers LAURA BENNETT, ULI HERZNER and fan favourite MICHAEL KNIGHT, when the group staged presentations during New York Fashion Week. The contestant's fashion show presentations were taped in September (06) and the winner was finally announced last night (18OCT06). Sebelia said, "I'm shocked. My brain is trying to figure out exactly what's happening." Sebelia had been under investigation by show executives for possibly outsourcing his designs, but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Judges for the competition included supermodel and host HEIDI KLUM, designer MICHAEL KORS, Elle magazine fashion director NINA GARCIA and Fashion Week executive FERN MALLIS. Klum told Sebelia, "We love what you did. You have great style. You're a great designer and we want to see more of you." Sebelia will receive $100,000 (GBP555,000) in start-up money to help launch his own fashion line, a new car and a mentorship with INC International Concepts sportswear at MACy's department store.
