Project Runway has a history of featuring talented designers with roots in the West Indies, with Trini winner Anya De Rogue, and last year’s talented tailor from Guyana, Ven Budhu. The current season is proving to be no different. Bronx native and Brooklyn-based designer, Samantha Black, is killing the contest with her innovative designs and impeccable taste. Success is nothing new for Black, who’s parents are both from Jamaica, as she’s already made a name for herself with her sick bad collections for her own line, Sammy B Designs. In addition, Ms. B has worked with some amazing designers like Michael Kors and Alexander McQueen and dressed some serious divas like Keri Hilson and Ashanti.
