MEET … FINALIST NUMBER ONE
Christopher Straub is a Minnesota designer who was recently a finalist on the smash hit reality TV design challenge “Project Runway.” He finds inspiration in natural surroundings in Minnesota: flowers, leaves, rocks, sky and water. He focuses on hand-crafted textual treatments to give volume and artistry to his fashion. Being eco-responsible is important to him in both design and home life. For fashion, he uses vintage and found fabrics and has been using organic cotton jersey to create custom-printed material for different projects. He also created a line of one-of-a-kind underwear made from recycled graphic tee shirts.
Seriously! How cute are his sketches? This is a favorite from his appearance of Project Runway.
