About Christopher Straub

Crowned Fan Favorite during sixth season of Project Runway in 2009, self-taught designer Christopher Straub didn’t put on airs, he just went back home to Shakopee, Minnesota, and put on his Midwestern work ethic.

Straub’s collections embrace not only apparel, but handbags and other accessories, all of which reflect an aesthetic based on nature in form and texture.  Inspired by the elemental, Straub’s signature is photo-realistic prints and whimsical design.  With a background in art and illustration, Straub also manipulates fabric and strives to create “wearable art,” individually designed statement pieces.

Now a father, Christopher and his husband, Ronnie Cooper, adopted two sons in the summer of 2016.
