He has been designing for one year and gets his inspiration from the streets of New Orleans.

Here is an interview with Brik:

When did you realize you had designer potential?

I started sketching designs when I was sixteen and knew then that I had a unique aesthetic. I believed in my potential from the very beginning.

Strengths as a designer?

My greatest strength is passion for what I do. On top of that, I'm a skilled patternmaker and I know how to cut and sew quality garments.

Weaknesses as a designer?

I have so many ideas, which tends to make me indecisive.

How did you end up auditioning for "Project Runway"?

I auditioned last season, but none of my portfolio work was current. The casting director told me to work on my POV and apply again next year with at least six brand new looks. I spent the past year mastering my craft and putting together my first collection specifically for "Project Runway." It would've been silly not to apply again.

Challenge you wish they'd bring back?

I loved the hardware store challenge. My designs are very structured so it would be fun to work with metal.

Challenge you hope they don't?

Please don't make me dress female wrestlers. There's absolutely nothing fashionable about wrestling.

What's your take on team challenges?

I think team challenges present an opportunity for brilliant collaborations. However, they also have the potential to turn sour if the dynamic is off. I have no reason to love or hate team challenges because they could go either way.

Do you think you can win "Project Runway"?

I think I can win "Project Runway," because I have a fresh style that reflects the times we are in. I've got the skills required to create my visions and I always push myself to grow as an artist. I also have the drive to succeed and the ambition to make a difference in the world.
