MediaTakeOut.com is sad to confirm that Michael Knight from Project Runway has died.
Michael broke into the fashion industry in Atlanta, Georgia, by working as an intern at Wilbourn Exclusives in 2001 and then by becoming a Fashion Stylist in the music industry in 2002.
In 2005, Knight auditioned for the second season of the then Bravo network reality television series, but he was not accepted as a season two contestant. In 2006, Michael reauditioned for Project Runway, and this time he was accepted as a contestant for season three. Michael went on to win season three’s Fan Favorite award and to place fourth in the overall competition.
Michael had been working with fashion brands for the past seven years - and was seen as one of the most successful Black designers in the industry.
So what killed him?? Well it's not entirely clear. But people are saying he may have had some issues with his immune system.
