Who Won Project Runway 2010 – Season 7?
If you missed the finale of Project Runway 2010 on Lifetime last night, you may be wondering who won the big prize. While each of the Top 3 contestants showed their collections and wowed the judges at New York Fashion Week, who won Project Runway and scored the Marie Claire spread and all that cold, hard cash? Was it Mila? Emilio? Nope. Last night, Seth Aaron Henderson won Project Runway Season 7!
The day after the episode where Seth Aaron won Project Runway Season 7 aired, prominent fashion designer and judge on the show, Michael Kors said about the Seth Aaron collection, “In all my years of judging, I haven’t seen clothes so beautifully tailored.” Kors appeared with Seth Aaron Henderson on Good Morning, America Friday.
The winner of Project Runway 2010, Seth Aaron, worked for months to build his line, and displayed it on the runway along with two of the other Top 3 contestants. He was actually informed he was the Project Runway winner months ago, and has had to remain tight-lipped ever since his New York Fashion Week presentation.

Regardless of fan opinion on all the designers’ collections, and their feelings on who should have won Project Runway, Seth Aaron’s hard work and attention to detail brought a lot to the resulting pieces, and ultimately paid off. The collection earned Seth Aaron $100,000 cash, plus an additional $50,00 “technology suite” to help build his business. The budding designer also scored a featured Marie Claire editorial (in which his model will appear; she also won $25,000 last night).
Seth Aaron Henderson will also be able to launch sales for his fashion line on Bluefly.com free of charge, which is a great way for fans of the show to stay on top of what the fresh new designer comes up with after being named the Project Runway Season 7 winner.
It should serve as a huge boon to have such a nice chunk of start-up capital, magazine attention, and an easy online way to access his clothing line, but only time will tell if that head-start truly pays off for Seth Aaron’s career. What he really needs is dedication and talent, both of which the Project Runway judges (and many fans) feel he has in spades. Fans will be watching and expecting more great pieces from the designer as he transistions from merely a “contestant” spot to his current “winner” role.
