TMZ, reports that former "Project Runway" finalist Mychael Knight died Tuesday morning at about 7:30 am in a Georgia hospital
Knight died after recently checking into the hospital. He had been getting treatment for intestinal issues. Mychael explained his illness on a post a few months ago. He had Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He exclaimed that it had completely taken over his life. He had been battling the illness and the illnesses that go along with it for more than 5 years.
You may recall Mychael's season on Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars. Shari Shepard had taken a liking to him, so he styled her exclusively for some time. He and another alum, Korto Momolu, had been collaborating on various fashion projects as well. He released several collections after his Project Runway fame. His last maybe the 2016 collection. He had a very supportive team, so we may see some items he had been working on for 2017 or pieces that never came to fruition. I know I hope so.
Mychael was one of my favorites.
Rest In Peace Mychael
