Blake Patterson from "Project Runway 2015" is one of the contestants in Season 14 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. He is a 24-year-old designer from Los Angeles, California. He was raised though in Chardon, Ohio.

Blake Patterson is originally from a small town in Ohio, where he attended Catholic high school. While he was forced to wear a uniform, he didn't let that stifle his creativity when it came to putting outfits together. From carefully selected ties and double layered polo shirts, Blake was voted "Best Dressed" in high school and since then knew he had a future in fashion. With nothing but a suitcase and a pillow, Blake left Ohio for Los Angeles to study at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). He's inspired by African culture and is very excited to create avant-garde designs.

Why will he win? Blake is confident in his work and isn't afraid to let people know what he really thinks. Being strong in design, fabric selection, and craftsmanship, he is sure to create some amazing pieces.

Blake's style icon is Carmen Doll'Orefice, while his favorite designers are Charles James and John Galliano. Blake's favorite past "Project Runway" designer is Christian Siriano.
