Don’t look now, but there’s a Filipino participant in the roster of competing designers in the 7th season of Project Runway hosted by Heidi Klum. Jay Nicolas Sario, a 31 year old Visual Merchandiser and Lead Stylist for Gap, Inc. is out to prove his worth as a designer, on top of representing the Philippines instead of just being tagged onscreen as a San Francisco-based contestant.
It’s only the 2nd episode for the current season, but he has already made his presence felt by winning the challenge to create a party look from a burlap potato sack. The judging panel, which included fashionable senior actress Lauren Hutton, picked Sario’s design as the best in the batch for the specific objective of the task at hand.
Let’s see if Jay Nicolas can sustain the momentum in the next episodes. This is the kind of show where consistency and creativity are key factors for survival.
Here’s the link to the video of Jay Nicolas Sario for Episode 2.
Good luck, Jay Nicolas!!! 😉
