Portland, January 9th, 2014.  “Winning this show is not about being on TV, it’s about the future,” local designer Seth Aaron said of his victory on Project Runway. ” This is the best collection I’ve ever made.” Project Runway season seven winner Seth Aaron Henderson proved  he’s a cut above the rest, winning season three of Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars with his collection entitled “Ole.” The Portland-based designer beat out fellow finalists Korto Momolu and Elena Slyvniak with a mini collection inspired by his Spanish heritage and created in just four days for the finale runway show at The United Nations.

"Project Runway All Stars" season 3 finalists remembered their roots in the finale. For their final project, Seth Aaron, Korto and Elena were tasked to create a six-piece collection in four days with a $2,000.00 budget and they had to take inspiration from their own personal heritage.

The three designers visited the headquarters of the United Nations to meet with a delegate from their country. As the top three learned more about their country heritage, Korto and Elena shared their stories about relocating to another country.

 Korto and her family left Liberia for Canada to escape war. Her work would mainly feature gray, yellow and white. Elena, who was born in the Ukraine, moved to the U.S. with her family when she was 10. Her collection would be based on the Ukraine's flag's colors: blue and yellow. Seth, who has Spanish heritage, was seemingly inspired by matador costume with red, gold and black dominating his collection.
