March 5, 2008, New York, NY – Christian Siriano, formerly an AIU London student, was selected as the winning fashion designer on Bravo TV's Season 4 finale of Project Runway. Project Runway provides budding designers with an opportunity to launch their careers in the world of fashion. The hugely successful reality series has become one of television's most talked-about shows.
Each season, fifteen talented fashion designers are selected from thousands of hopefuls to compete for the opportunity to show their creative work at New York's Fashion Week. Supermodel Heidi Klum heads a panel of industry luminaries, including top women's and men's wear designer Michael Kors and Elle Magazine fashion director Nina Garcia, who serve as judges and mentors charged with selecting and molding the budding designers. Tim Gunn, Chief Creative Officer at Liz Claiborne, Inc., acts as mentor to the program's contestants.
