AND THE WINNER IS...

DMITRY SHOLOKHOV NAMED THE WINNER OF "PROJECT RUNWAY'S" 10TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON

NEW YORK, NY - October 18, 2012 - After competing in one of the most emotionally-charged seasons in the history of the series, one in which multiple designers quit before elimination, Belarus-born, professional ballroom dancer-turned-designer Dmitry Sholokhov has been named the winner of Project Runway's milestone 10th Anniversary season by judges Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia and guest judge Academy Award(R) winner Jennifer Hudson. During this season, the designers showcased their talents in a live outdoor runway in Times Square, made couture creations out of candy, multitasked as parents and designers during a kid's clothing challenge and sold homemade goods to earn money for fabric, among other challenges, that tested each designer's passion, creativity and ability to work under pressure.

Sholokhov proved to be a cut above the rest, beating out fellow designers Fabio Costa, Melissa Fleis and Christopher Palu with his organic architecture and geometric-shaped inspired collection. Praised by the judges for his sophisticated, polished, editorial and luxurious designs, Sholokhov receives $100,000 from L'Oréal Paris to start his own line, a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine, a 2013 Lexus GS 350, a $50,000 technology suite by HP and Intel to create his own vision and run his business and the opportunity to design and sell an exclusive collection at Lord & Taylor.

Sholokhov's model, Katt Vogel, will also appear in the designer's editorial feature in Marie Claire and receives $25,000 from L'Oréal Paris EverStyle.
