Last night Bravo’s hit television show, Project Runway, crowned a brand new top designer, and we couldn’t be happier with their choice! The winner is none other than Portland, Oregon native, Leanne Marshall. You might not know this (because Bravo isn’t really talking about it at all), but Marshall is super environmentally-friendly and uses sustainable fabrics throughout her collection. In fact, half of her final runway show line was made of these kinds of fabrics.
Project Runway is no stranger to green design. Earlier this year Ecorazzi reported that Natalie Portman adjudicated a special eco-friendly competition where the designers had to use all eco-materials.
Marshall received a $100,000 cash prize, a new Saturn hybrid (yay, hybrid!), a spread in Elle magazine, a year’s professional representation, and invaluable industry exposure.
From all of us here at the Razz, a big congratulations to Leanne Marshall on her exciting win. Keep rocking those mean, green designs!
