A 5th generation Mexican-American, Guerra has been a fan favorite since he first appeared on the show in Season 8. He’s the first Latino to win in the “Project Runway” franchise. During the All Star finale runway show, Guerra described what went into make his winning collection, “Therapy.” After weeks of stressful design challenges, Guerra said “I needed some therapy, I put all my passion into my work.”

The six piece collection was true to Guerra’s signature design esthetic.  A master of mixing prints, Guerra’s use of black and white geographic patterns and unexpected pops of red wowed the judges. Judge and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi told Guerra that of the three collections in the finale, his was “the most cohesive, in the whit of it.” Co-founder of fashion label Marchesa, judge Georgina Chapman, couldn’t rave enough about Guerra, calling him a brilliant designer. When host and model Angela Lindvall told Guerra he was the winner, he couldn’t believe it.

“Being on ‘Project Runway All Stars’ was the hardest thing I’ve done.” Guerra continued, “I came here with such confidence, understanding who I was…but being here has made me realize I can’t…take what I’ve been given for granted.”
Guerra made it into the finale in Season 8 as well, but lost the title to fellow designer Gretchen Jones. While in Season 8 the designer walked away empty handed, Guerra’s ‘All Star’ win has him taking home the biggest prize in “Project Runway” history.Aside from $100,000 in cash, Guerra also received a yearlong guest editor position at fashion magazine Marie Claire and an exclusive boutique in select Neiman Marcus department stores.

  2. I’m just commenting to make you be aware of of the amazing discovery my friend’s girl experienced using your web page. She realized several issues, which include what it’s like to possess a wonderful teaching style to have a number of people clearly thoroughly grasp chosen hard to do subject areas. You truly surpassed her expected results. Thanks for distributing the useful, healthy, educational as well as fun thoughts on your topic to Kate.
