Jasper Garvida is announced as the winner of this year’s Project Catwalk
After a nail-biting ten weeks, we can proudly reveal that Jasper Garvida is Project Catwalk’s winning designer. The announcement was made in the season’s finale of Project Catwalk, which was broadcasted last night, 19th March, Sky One 9pm.
In the final episode of the series, Project Catwalk’s Jasper Garvida, Viv Whelan and Chelsey Oliver, carried out their last and most challenging assignment of the season, after 9 tough weeks of bitching and stitching.
The 3 remaining contestants had to each create a 12 piece women’s wear collection inspired by an inspirational visit or destination, to be presented on the catwalk as part of On I Off London Fashion Show, during London Fashion Week.
Each of the three finalists were given £5000 to purchase all of the necessary materials including fabric, accessories and any additional labour for specialist elements of their garments. Furthermore, each contestant was taken to the place of their choice which they found would inspire their collection. This place, its architecture, atmosphere, colours, and history needed to be in some, or all of those ways, inspirational for their final collection.
The judges faced a very tough decision, but Jasper Garvida’s talent, meticulous detail and passion shined through in his collection, making him Project Catwalk’s triumphant designer.
Kelly Osbourne, presenter of Project Catwalk said, "This year we’ve had some incredibly talented contestants which made our decision very difficult, but Jasper’s talent and passion for design has stood out throughout the competition and his final collection was dazzling. I really do think that we have found the UK’s next biggest designer."
