“I am grateful to Project Runway for putting me on a path I never, in my wildest dreams, thought my career would take me!

"I am so proud to have been a part of the groundbreaking process that showcased talented young designers as never before.

"Most importantly, I am indebted to our incredible fans, they are the heart and soul of what we do, and continue to inspire us to raise the bar in this arena.

"I’m excited for them to see what’s next, as I partner with Amazon and Heidi Klum on our next great ‘fashion’ adventure.”
