What We’re Watching Tonight – Project Runway Reunion Special On Lifetime! Plus – Our Exclusive With Season 16 Winner!By Delaina Dixon | November 30, 2017 | Entertainment

Project Runway Reunion Special (9 p.m., Lifetime). Hey Divas. You know that season 16 of Project Runway was EXPLOSIVE. Well, all will be revealed tonight on the reunion special (can’t wait to hear from the twins!).
One person who will be grinning ear from ear is season 16 winner Kentaro Kameyama. The 38-year-old designer’s sculptural and flowing designs captivated the judges for the top slot. “I’m so happy,” Kentaro declares to the DivaGals. He explains that while he loved his collection, after the judge’s critique, he wasn’t sure THEY did. Because he was the last one called into the final four for Fashion Week, he figured there was no chance of him winning. “I kind of didn’t care what the judges are going to think. I kind of did whatever I wanted to do.”
Kentaro loves ballet and classical music, and those themes influenced his designs. “The big black tulle dress reminds me of a ballerina, and they are so beautiful,” he says, adding that he wasn’t going to do it because he didn’t think the judges would love it. “And it came out to be good.”
Of course, that means Project Runway brother Brandon Kee – who was a frontrunner in the series, didn’t take home the title. “I took a picture of me and Brandon together and had it at my workstation, and Brandon stole it, Kentaro exclaims. After his win, Brandon sent him back the photo to congratulate him. “It’s really cute.”
Of course, Kentaro’s collection is now available at JC Penney. “The description of the pieces in my collection, I wrote it … and they didn’t change it. I really appreciate that.
Congrats Kentaro! See the final six collections at NY Fashion Week – including Kentaro’s winning designs!
