Inspired by the German and Soviet military in the '40s, Henderson impressed Heidi Klum and co. with his bold choices and attention to details.

In the final challenge to win a $100,000 and receive the title as "Project Runway" season 7 winner, Seth Aaron Henderson came out victorious. The stylist slash designer impressed the panel of judges, including guest Faith Hill, with his graphic design inspired by 1940s German and Soviet military.

Henderson created a line of red, yellow, black and gray high-collared dresses and separates which are accessorized with leather gloves, patterned leggings and cuffs. Michael Kors said his design was "exhilarating and powerful," while Nina Garcia said Henderson was "fearless".

"I came here to prove something to myself, and I did that. But I guess I also impressed a lot of people along the way," he said upon winning. Henderson would use the prize money for vacation with wife and their two children.

In the competition, Henderson beat Emilio Sosa's vibrant collection which he titled Color Me Bad. The contestant who won most of the challenges in the season fought back tears when the judges announced the result. Mila Hermanovski came in third place with her 1960s-inspired black and white line.

Ok I agree with you that Emilio had talent but his line...well it wasn’t that great. Yes he made some wonderful cloths during the season (including that beautiful dress at the end of his line) but, his line was inconsistent, and the colors were, in my opinion, to say it bluntly an ugly combination. It wasn’t really a line because, if you look at most of his collection, and then at the final dress I mentioned earlier, it just doesn’t fit together. Seth Aarons, on the other hand, while, admittedly, was a little odd, was a LINE. It showed consistency and as soon as the first garment turned the corner, you knew it was Seth's. Emilio’s...not so much.

I have been a loyal PR fan since Season 1. But that's it for me. What is it with America and African American designers? There have been 3 seasons in which an African American deserved to win in PR history. I like Seth Aarons work but Emilio proved with is different and unique runway show (or line as they called it) and his competitive edge during the season that he clearly deserved to win. Sorry Emilio and Auf wiedersehen Project Runway.
