Sandro Masmanidi was one of the designers of Project Runway
Season 12. He comes from Krasnodar, Russia but currently resides in New York. He's worked as a model, busboy, salesman, architectural draughtsman, a jewelry designer though at present he's designing clothes. He believed that he had what it took to win the competition because he is decisive and focused. In week 4 of the competition, however, he decided to quit
after displaying inappropriate behavior, including giving fellow contestant Ken the finger, knocking over pieces on the set and punching the camera.
