Designer Spotlight: Evan Biddell

Designer Spotlight episodes are the origin stories of fashion designers.  What kind of kid were they growing up? What did they submit to design school? When did clothing and fashion start to be an important force in their life? We talk about them, not their collections.

Evan Biddell has been a fixture in the Canadian fashion industry since he won the first season of Project Runway Canada. Listen as Donna and Evan discuss his early days as a designer, the power of Project Runway, museum installations and what gets him fired up today.

To see his collections and dozens of examples of Evan’s work from over the past 20 years go to Evan Biddell
