Project Runway contestant Prajjé Oscar Jean-Baptiste grew up in Haiti, where he was raised by his grandmother. At the age of 14, Prajjé moved to the United States, and that’s when he realized his love for fashion could potentially transform into a profession. Oscar’s adoptive French parents were very encouraging of his choice.

Prajjé attended the prestigious Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, and launched his self-titled women’s clothing line, Prajjé Oscar, at the age of nineteen.
