Project Runway Australia Designer Lui Hon To Be Be Showcased Overseas
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/
