But first, let’s begin with what happened right after he won. To begin with, he didn’t except the mentorship with Banana Republic and wouldn’t except the $100,000. yep, he turned down $100,000 to start his own line, but with good reason; in the Project Runway contract, at the time, it stated that if he were to except these things, the Project Runway production company would own a 10% stake of all his professional ventures. Later on, they took this clause out of their contracts.
So a year later in 2006, Jay was at Fashion Week with a new collection called Transport. I must admit, I was a tad disappointed. You see, it wasn’t as bright and avant garde as his first show. I really enjoyed his eye for bright colors and AHmazing details. But that’s fine if he wants to change because hey, that’s just my opinion.
