College of Design alumnus and current assistant professor of art + design and co-faculty adviser of Art2Wear, Justin LeBlanc, is soon to find himself thrust on a national stage. LeBlanc was recently named one of the 12 contestants to be featured on the upcoming season of hit show Project Runway.
The Lifetime reality show pits up-and-coming fashion designers against one another in a series of challenges. Contestants are eliminated as the show progresses, and the winner gets prizes valued at $500,000 and a showing at New York’s Fashion Week in Lincoln Center.
