Frater Competing in Project Runway on Bravo
NEW YORK CITY, NY - Frater Kevin Christiana, of Sigma-Upsilon Chapter (Ramapo College of New Jersey) is a designer on Project Runway Season 4 on the Bravo Network. A first generation Italian-American born and raised in Fairfield, New Jersey and currently residing in New York City, Kevin will compete in this season's competition. Kevin's family hails from Ciminna, Sicily and is made up of many tailors and seamstresses. He was taught to sew by his Aunt Ida Lasusa, and thinks it's no surprise that his design aesthetic combines classic European tailoring with his own edgy twist. Kevin draws inspiration from daily life in Gotham city and his travels around the world.
Kevin studied at New York City's Fashion Institute of Technology, where he won the "Menswear Designer of the Year" grant. He worked for his cousin, designer Susana Monaco, for six years before branching off to start his own line.
Kevin is the head designer and partner of the labels KEVIN CHRISTIANA and KJEANS. Kevin's collections have sold to approximately 200 boutiques nationwide and KJEANS debuted on the cover of the Victoria's Secret Fall 2006 catalogue.
