Project Runway phenom Evan Biddell injects attitude into fashion

Project Runway phenom Evan Biddell injects attitude into fashion

Unceremonious fizzling out seems to be the standard fate for players in talent-competition reality shows. But Evan Biddell, the first-season champ of Project Runway Canada, is the exception: the profanity-spewing, moon-faced Saskatoon boy has turned his 15 minutes into a promising design career. Biddell’s custom-order fall collection features outlandishly proportioned, armour-like pieces in surprising fabrics, such as cork. Well studied in spectacle, he also plans to set his designs apart by installing his runway in a sweatshop—he’s bussing a crowd of 100 to the Seven Continents Factory on Wilson Avenue for his spring 2011 reveal. A little drama goes a long way.
