A few weeks ago we told you all about Elena Slivnyak, 2009 BFA Fashion Design alumna on the latest season of Project Runway – but it was recently brought to our attention that a second contestant this season is also from the School of Fashion. Melissa Fleis, a 2011 MFA Fashion Design graduate, also made the cut!
Fleis has a distinct point of view, and cites Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens, and Yohji Yamamoto as her design inspirations. Currently the fan favorite on the show, she’s building quite the following. We’ll definitely be watching her on tonight’s episode!
