It’s official: Raleigh’s Justin LeBlanc will compete in the finale of “Project Runway.”
At N.C. State, Justin showed Tim how he was using a 3D printer to make accessories for his black and white line -- curvy bracelets and necklaces that represent sound waves. Justin’s line, which he showed (along with other finalists and a few decoys) at New York Fashion Week in early September, represents his journey from deafness to receiving cochlear implants.
Justin’s “unconventional materials” design in Thursday night’s elimination show cinched his spot in the final -- a long white gown made of tiny test tubes. The judges raved.
Justin will go up against three other finalists ( Dom Streater, Bradon McDonald and Alexandria von Bromssen) in next Thursday’s season finale, which airs on Lifetime at 9 p.m.
