One of the more already-established designers to appear on Project Runway, Kashou was known for his beautiful style of draping fabric. He sells his designs in boutiques across the country, and last year Kashou, born in Jerusalem and raised in Ramallah, West Bank, was a special guest at an event for Seeds of Peace, which promotes peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
(FOR THE RECORD: A previous version of this caption referred incorrectly to Kashou as a native Palestinian. )
