Congratulations, Project Accessory's Brian!
The first winner of Project Accessory is... Brian Burkhardt! The Miami jewelry designer edged out the competition to take home the grand prize last week, which includes $100,000 from eBay Fashion to start his own accessories line, a spread in InStyle, and a year of professional runway hair styling courtesy of John Frieda. "I gave it my all," Burkhardt said after the win. "I applied myself 110%. It was the hardest thing I ever did in my life. To be awarded for that is pretty amazing." InStyle editor Ariel Foxman Tweeted his closure after the show wrapped: "Happy to judge." Congrats to Brian, and stay tuned to see his spread in a future issue!
