Any sewing diva worth her (or his) swatches remembers Jay McCaroll, the dark horse designer and winner of the first season of “Project Runway”. The irreverent, profanity-laden, but ultimately triumphant McCarroll trumped both odds-on favorite Kara Saun and universally despised Wendy Pepper with a collection that was witty and wearable all at once. And the most charming part? When host Heidi Klum declared him the next great American designer his reaction was, “That’s just nutty!” How can you not love the man, quirks and all?
Well, Jay has taken that quirky fashion sense and with his characteristic flair, is auctioning 9 original fashion sketches that he drew during the taping of “Project Jay”. Portions of the fur-free proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of the United States. You can see the sketches here: Jay McCarroll’s Sketches. But hurry! The auctions end later today.
