First Plus Size Designer To Win Project Runway: Meet Ashley Tipton Hero Image

For the first time in 14 seasons (11 years), Project Runway awarded the grand prize to plus-size designer Ashley Tipton. Her 1950s-inspired designs (all plus size) wow-ed the judges and viewers.

"This was the opportunity that I was given to showcase who I really am as a designer," Tipton told People. "I had to show that this is what I design, and this is what I know."

For the final episode, Tipton will present a plus-size collection at New York Fashion Week. Here are a couple of her show-stopping looks from last night.
