Project Runway Australia Designer Lui Hon To Be Be Showcased Overseas

lui-ep-4Lui Hon, probably the most talented designer on the first season of Project Runway Australia, has had a huge  career boost with his portfolio about to be shown to the powers that be at Helmut Lang.

The Sun Herald today said the show’s mentor Henry Roth took over a selection of the season one Project Runway designer’ portfolios and pitched them to four of the top fashion headhunters in New York City.

Henry Roth said “The main focus was on Lui and the reaction so far is that his work will be shown to Helmut as he has a real European bent. The headhunters agreed he’d be well-placed for Berlin or Milan. And his work will also be shown to huge US label Theory.”

Lui Hon says “The European market is a dream of mine. In your life sometimes you meet a lucky person who gives you a hand. Henry’s one of those people. I can’t thank him enough.”

If you have yet to see Lui’s designs you can have a look at them on his website that went live today at http://www.luihon.com.au/

Also here is an interview with Lui Hon about his time on Project Runway Australia.

I have just watched season 1 PR in AU and Lui Hon is the most gifted designer there. I enjoyed his work enough to look him up and find out where he is today! I yell out at the TV, no! When he did not place in the top 3. I so wanted to see what his collection would have been. Much love and blessing to you Lui. Bonny
