'Project Runway' Alum Mychael Knight Dead at 39

Mychael Knight has sadly passed away at the age of 39. Mychael meant everything to us and we loved him dearly.

According to TMZ, Knight died after recently checking into the hospital, where he'd been getting treatment for intestinal issues. He was generous and so full of life.

"We are saddened to hear about the passing of a member of the Project Runway family, designer Mychael Knight", Lifetime said in a statement to E!

The famed designer was born on April 11, 1978, in Nuremberg, Germany, though he spent his childhood in Montgomery, Alabama. He studied Apparel Design and Merchandising at Georgia Southern University, graduating in 2001.


Knight placed fourth during his season on 'Runway, ' and won the Fan Favorite Award as well.

In his post-Runway career, Knight launched a clothing label, a female/male lingerie label, and his own unisex fragrance. In 2010, he debuted a Fall/Winter line at Charleston Fashion Week in SC.

Check out Mychael's collection on the season three finale of Project Runway. His Spring/Summer 2018 line was his most recent.
