About guest judge, Wisdom Kaye, as 'Project Runway' contestants excitedly receive his fashion advice
Wisdom Kaye is a 21-year-old model and fashion influencer. He gained a huge following after going viral on TikTok. The social media sensation creates content inspired by streetwear, anime, cartoons, fashion challenges, budget looks and so on.
Kaye fuses genderless fashion and humor, which makes his style unique. The six-foot-four model was signed by IMG in 2019. He has worked with brands like Coach, Fendi, Revlon and Dior.
Kaye's interest in fashion began back in high school. He used the art as a form of self defense after dealing with bullying.
Episode 2 features Kaye giving advice to the 16 designers:
"I'm here to deliver some very pivotal information. In street style, the bigger proportions and loose fit really come into play. Accessorizing is always key and so is the right headwear."
The contestants were elated to see him. One of them exclaimed, "Oh I love him on Tiktok!" Another designer said,
"Wisdom Kaye! I follow him on social media. I relate to him as his style is so fresh and so fun. Streetwear is my thing!"
