"Lucas was born with it..."

Fashion is in Lucas’ DNA. Style courses through his veins. His strong artistic vision coupled with his unbridled confidence allows him to hold his own in the industry despite his young age. Anyone who knows him and his work will tell you “Lucas was born with it.”

Engrossed in fashion from very early on in life, Lucas started hand sewing at the age of six. Soon after receiving his first sewing machine a year later, he began making clothes for family and friends. Though Lucas is self-taught, he has honed his skills and improved his technique under the direction of two talented mentors. 

Lucas Charles designs are chic and classic, and verge on glamorous with his bold color choices. His passion is in designing and constructing evening wear for women, but he has also dabbled in menswear and gender-neutral clothing.

Appearances and Fashion Shows

Since appearing on “Project Runway: Threads” when he was just 12 years old, Lucas’ style has become more refined and polished. His continually improving skills and talents landed him a return to television with “Project Runway: Junior” in 2016.

Lucas later revealed his first collection at Orlando International Fashion Week in April 2017, and he will be showing his work again at the Discover Your Beauty show in Orlando August 27, 2017. The Discover Your Beauty show is dedicated to those who are battling and surviving cancer, and Lucas will auction off a few of his creations to raise money for the DYB Foundation.

While Lucas looks forward to attending a fashion college one day, he has his sights set on becoming the first person to appear on “Project Runway: Threads,” “Project Runway: Junior,” "Project Runway” and “Project Runway All Stars.” Keep an eye out for Lucas as he ambitiously brings his styles into the spotlight.

In the beginning...

Looks that kill...

On with the show...

Lucas had the great fortune to meet Nick Verreos on the set of Project Runway Threads. Nick has continued to be a great inspiration to Lucas.

All in the name of...

While Project Runway Junior didn’t end the way Lucas had hoped he was very lucky to make new friends including Kelly Osbourne.

Kickstart my heart...

Fashion is a family business. Lucas has a live-in model as his sister Victoria walks for him. Here she is rocking the runway during Orlando International Fashion Week.

Just another psycho…

Gina Vincenza, the Psycho Streamstress, worked with Lucas this past summer to help him develop his skills even further. Never stop learning!

Use it or lose it…

Lucas has been fortunate to be on Project Runway twice and show two collections on the runway. Who knows where his effort will take him next.

Lucas Charles: fashion school.

Take me to the top…

Today Lucas is focused on launching his first clothing line with his sister Victoria. Once it's up and running, Lucas wants to appear on Project Runway All Stars which will get him closer to one of his goals, which is to be on all four Project Runway shows.
