Austin Scarlett first gained international recognition for his designs on the original season of Project Runway, winning the program’s first challenge ever with his famed corn husk dress. He went on to become one of the youngest designers in history to be named Creative Director of a couture wedding and evening wear collection, Kenneth Pool, in 2006, creating six seasons of gowns for the design house. As a multimedia artist, Austin’s work with theatre and television provides another outlet for his abundant creativity, and a platform to share his philosophy of beauty with the world. In 2010 he developed, hosted and designed in his critically acclaimed television program, On the Road with Austin and Santino. Austin again captivated the hearts and minds of millions with his unique style on Project Runway All-Stars in 2012. He has designed costumes for David Parson’s Dance on PBS, Juilliard, Fort Worth Opera, The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and Shen Wei Dance Arts at the Park Avenue Armory and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
