Emilio Sosa BIO

EMILIO SOSA hails from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and has been working as a costume designer for years. He realized his passion for design when he was merely 14 years old, continuing to work towards that goal until he achieved it. A fan of Charles James, he’s had plenty of experience in the world of fashion and has even won several awards. Emilio Sosa has received TDF/Irene Sharaff Young Master Award in 2006 and was named Design Virtuoso by American Theater Magazine in 2003. He admits that he’s been inspired by historical events, which he incorporates into his design aesthetic. He certainly brings his creativity to the stage, but is now ready to take it to the catwalk. A driven designer, Emilio Sosa decided to take on the challenge of a reality TV competition. He soon found himself as a contestant on the seventh season of the “Project Runway,” set in New York. He became known as one of the 16 designers vying for the top prize and the chance to launch their careers in the fashion industry. He won several challenges throughout the competition, leading him to take second place that season. Since the show ended, he has continued to promote esosa designs, a line he co-created with his brothers. In 2012, Sosa joined the cast of “Project Runway All Stars” season 2. Sosa was the costume designer for Topdog/Underdog, Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (Tony nomination), Motown the Musical, and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.
