FIDM Grad Bradon McDonald Wins First Challenge on New Season of Project Runway


Last month we told you that two FIDM Graduates, Bradon McDonald and Alexander Pope, would be competing on the 12th season of Lifetime's Project Runway. On last night's premiere episode, the designers were asked to produce a garment out of parachute material.

Bradon, who was the winner of this challenge, created a multi-colored train over a short skirt that billowed down the runway and incorporated parachute cording as an accent. He has immunity for next week's design challenge. Judge Zac Posen noted that the various concepts -- cording, strapless necklace, and straps -- were expertly combined.
