Jesse LeNoir

 

Biography

From Painesville, OH comes Jesse LeNoir, an actor and fashion designer for his own label, House of Kilroy. As a child, he already developed quite a sense of style. It was only later that he decided to pursue a career in the fashion industry to allow his creativity to flow.

As an actor though, Jesse LeNoir has already performed in Captain Jack Sparrow's Pirate Tutorial at the Walt Disney World Resort. But his passion lies in designing, so he taught himself how to work a sewing machine while studying acting in college.

Jesse prides himself on being laid-back and clean in everything he does, traits he believes will help him get by as a designer. He’s also very motivated and knows when it’s time to take risks. He tried out for Project Runway and got called back, finding himself as a contestant for the reality TV competition’s seventh season, set in New York. He became one of the 16 designers vying for the top prize and the chance to launch their careers in the fashion industry. He was eliminated in episode 7 of the show, when the designers were tasked to create a look from materials found in a hardware store. He has since continued his career in fashion design and even showed his work at Bryant Park with some of his fellow contestants.
