During middle school, Wesley Nault began making his own clothes and got paid by his schoolmates to do the same for them. He attended the Fashion Institute of Technology for four years, while being interned at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs and Levi’s Group Inc. Learning the ins and outs of the industry, Wesley joined Project Runway to continue polishing his skills and turn into a professional designer.
Wesley considers himself to be poised, having a design style that’s clean and classic. His fashion is influenced by Jeanne Lanvin, Cristobal Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs, among others. He also favors big old sunglasses, and boasts of a sophisticated aesthetic.
On the series, he survived the first elimination but wasn’t so lucky the second time. He was eliminated when the judges weren’t pleased with his cocktail dress made from environmentally friendly fabrics. Since leaving the show, he has continued working towards a career in fashion design. He has also dressed celebrities like Kim Kardashian and has been known to be romantically involved with fellow Project Runway contestant Daniel Feld.
