Netherlands Project Runway Netherlands Season 1 (Winner)
Since winning the first season of “Project Runway Netherlands” over 10 years ago, Django has been working around the clock. He feels confident in who he is as a designer, working with several private clients, and has rolled out new commercial clothing, handbag and jewelry lines that he’s sold out of a pop-up shop.
Django’s design aesthetic reflects a sense of feminine and timeless elegance, focusing on fabrics and fit. He’s led by movement and silhouette and loves a combination of different textures and rich colors. He’s always looking for what he calls “future classics.”
While Django loves the USA, he feels the international designers have an advantage in the competition this season by tapping into their heritage for inspiration. He’s hesitant to leave behind his business and family, but is confident he will make them all proud and take home the win.
