Project Runway Season 19 Rajje Oscar Jean Baptiste Head Shot

Prajjé Oscar Jean-Baptiste

Philadelphia, PA

Age: 37

Prajjé Oscar Jean-Baptiste grew up in Haiti, where he was raised by his grandmother. When he moved to the United States at age 14, he realized his love of fashion could flourish into a profession, which was encouraged by his adoptive parents. Prajjé went to the prestigious Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and later launched his self-titled line, Prajjé Oscar. While living in New York City, he had his work featured in Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, Elle, Rolling Stone, and Teen Vogue. Prajjé describes his design style as “retro chic, yet remarkably wearable” 
and is best known for his glamorous evening dresses and luxurious fabrics. Today, his home base is Philadelphia, where he is looking for what’s next in his career and personal life. Like many others during these challenging times, he pivoted his work to a leisurewear line and moved his business online. Prajjé has a daughter living in Haiti whom he is looking forward to being with soon.
