Greetings, Project Runway Fans!
Alexander Knox is another of Season 13's Decoy Designers. These are the designers who show at Fashion Week so that the show attendees do not know who the finalists are among the designers still competing.
Knox is from Chicago, Illinois. He is currently studying at Columbia College. Since he's still a student, it was always a long shot that he'd make it to the finals. Still, he made it pretty far in the competition, which shows he has some real talent. His runway show featured very streamlined and simple designs in black, white and grey.
His show was low-key with a spare silhouette.
He plays around with informal, easy, cropped pants. He also showed a lot of bare midriffs in a variety of styles.
The collection didn't feature anything complex like jackets or sleeves.
The fabric choices and treatments were interesting.
This runway show wasn't going to set the world on fire. It's too bad he can't repurpose this show as a senior project in design school! Maybe he negotiated for extra credit. I'd love to see that senior project down the road to see how much progress he makes after being on the show.
A visit to his web page shows he's interested in menswear, which would be an interesting route for him to take. With some experience and more technical skills, the future certainly looks bright. Visit his page here and you can see his entire runway show at Blogging Project Runway.
