Project Runway Season 19 Caycee Black Head Shot

Caycee Black

Brooklyn, NY

Age: 40

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Caycee Black always felt like an outsider, and art was the space where she went to escape and dream. She was infatuated with old films and musicals in which she loved seeing women express themselves through their clothing. With a BFA in design from Parsons School of Design, she set up shop in New York City and held design jobs at Club Monaco, Tibi, and Coach. Now based in Brooklyn, Caycee created her own fashion line, Caycee Black Collection. Her dynamic, unique, and zany outlook on life shows up in her designs, which have been worn by Drew Barrymore, Michelle Williams, Lilly Singh, Solange Knowles, and others. In 2009, Caycee created her own fashion line, Caycee Black Collection, and was named Women’s Wear Daily Best New Designer. Known for her painted fabrics, Caycee calls her look "dystopian farm girl"—whimsical, rooted in nature, and unexpected. Recently, due to pandemic restrictions, Caycee joined forces with Susan Boyle, one of the first women to own a sneaker boutique celebrating sneaker culture and streetwear, and they are launching a children's designer meets streetwear collection in 2021.
