Dmitry Sholokhov is a New York based Artist and Fashion Designer.
Dmitry was born in Belarus, an ancient Baltic intersection of European grace, Slavic innovation and surprising modernity and progressivism. His family placed high value on intellect and introduced Dmitry to fine arts, literature, music and dance from a very early age. Dmitry used to be a professional ballroom dancer who would design costumes for himself and his friends at a very early age and eventually decided to pursue fashion designing. At 18 he sought further growth and decided to move to New York City to pursue his dream to become a world famous fashion designer.
With the encouragement of friends and family, Dmitry enrolled and graduated from Parsons School of Design, earning his BFA in Fashion Design. During his studies, he was offered internships at J. Mandel
Upon graduation he continued working at J. Mendel. Fashion professionals recognized his talent, artistic capacity, personal charm and professionalism. Eventually Dmitry was recruited to an even more challenging position at the Jones Apparel Group working across their brands.
Dmitry departed the Jones Group in 2012 to develop his own brand. His confidence in his own entrepreneurship combined with his talent, design and production skills led him to compete in Project Runway Season X. During the Project Runway competition, he found he could be effective in the public eye, maintain professionalism, grace and poise and still create and execute under a myriad of new pressures.
All four judges praised Sholokhov's designs, calling them polished and sophisticated, highly editorial but wearable and sellable at the same time. He finally was crowned the winner of Project Runway.
In 2013, Dmitry presented and sold his capsule exclusive collection for Lord&Taylor and presented his Spring 2014 collection in numerous fashion weeks around the world.
In 2015 Dmitry Sholokhov returned to Television on Project Runway All Stars Season 4. It has been another journey filled with competition, and challenges to test the creative limits of best of the best designers. Dmitry has once again proved to the judges he reigns supreme, and was crowned a double victor: Dmitry Sholokhov now has the title of both Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars winner.
His business today focuses on private commissions and pursuit of partnerships with major retailers.
