Adejoké Taiwo and Kim Cathers Sent Home

Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT on Global

Designers Adejoké Taiwo and Kim Cathers were sent home on Project Runway Canada last night…
Adejoke’s ready to wear outfit was praised by the judges for its fresh and youthful feel on the runway, however a lack of cohesiveness between the two designers couldn’t be overlooked. Kim’s silhouette was deemed interesting by the judges, however the poor construction of the avant-garde design made it hard for Iman to appreciate.

About Adejoké
Calgary’s Adejoké Taiwo got the itch for fashion when she was in grade school. Her education continued with studies in costume design at Red Deer College in Alberta and a degree from the Ryerson University School of Fashion in Toronto in 2008.  Adejoké credits growing up in a disciplined family for her determination to succeed. Looking to the future, one of Adejoké’s goals is to design a fashion line involving sustainable indigenous fabrics.

About Kim
Kim says fashion has always been a part of her life. She started her career designing leather bags and restyling vintage clothes, traveling around to music festivals and farmers markets selling her wares. After completing the fashion design program at the Blanche McDonald Centre, she opened a retail store to sell her kdon clothing line. She says she creates enchanting, progressive and innovative clothing made out of natural fibers whenever possible. She was forced to close the store in 2007, but continues to push the kdon line further while supplementing her income doing odd jobs.

Project Runway Canada
