Tasha Henderson from "Project Runway 2016" is one of the contestants in Season 15 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is from Shreveport, Louisiana.

Tasha Henderson has fifteen years of experience as a fashion designer and designed full-time for her own label. Music has a big influence on the aesthetic of her designs, in addition to art and urban lifestyle. Tasha's dream is to be a part of Kanye West's design team, where she would design textured pieces that told the story of a nomad's life in one collection.

Henderson's favorite designers are Kanye West, Control Sector, and Daniel Patrick, while her style icons are Kanye West, Jesse Boykins, SZA, Rihanna, Janelle Monae, and Pharrell. Henderson's favorite past "Project Runway" designers are Christian Siriano, Samantha Black, Sonjia, Mondo Guerra, and Dom Streater.

Here is an interview with Henderson:

When did you realize you had designer potential?

I realized my designer potential when I was like eight or nine years old. I always had a love for fabric and apparel.

What is your design training?

I have no formal training besides my mother. I have other fashion credentials via school and training.

Strengths as a designer?

My strength as a designer is making pieces that are trendy and building pieces. I also have a great eye for style.

Weaknesses as a designer?

My weakness as a designer is overthinking. I will overthink a design during execution sometimes.

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

I auditioned for PR in 2014. I actually always wanted to audition but didn't feel like I was a strong enough designer, so my family encouraged me and I went for it.

Challenge you wish they'd bring back?

The challenges I hope they bring back is the dumpster diving challenge. I would love that!

Challenge you hope they don't?

To be honest there isn't a challenge that I hope they wouldn't bring back. All of the challenges have been pretty dope.

What's your take on team challenges?

I absolutely love team challenges because my husband and I are a design team and I am good with working alone or together.

Do you think you can win "Project Runway"?

I feel very strongly in my heart that I could win because I am trendy and I feel like my apparel is the voice of the underdog. I feel like I have strong presentations and I love excitement on the runway that always catches the audience by surprise. I need this win to be able to make my dream come true and start a solid and successful journey in fashion.
