Extremely creative and well developed Design professional with extensive experience in orchestrating all aspects of design operations. Dmitry Sholokhov is known for innovation and forward thinking. He has been called “highly editorial” (Nina Garcia – “Marie Claire”) with “impeccable taste and quality” (Michael Kors).

When Dmitry was a kid, in his native Belarus, he used to spend hours staring at shapes and colors in the nature and finding beauty in them. "I still keep staring at shapes and colors and searching for beauty, and I believe that obsession will stay with me forever". Dmitry Sholokhov was born in Belarus, to a family of intellectuals who introduced him to art, literature, music and dance. It is from early age that this was the world he chose to live in. When he decided to expend this world and make his mark in it, he moved to New York City, at the age of 18. He enrolled and graduated from Parsons School of Design, earning his BFA in Fashion Design. During his studies, he was offered internships at Calvin Klein and J. Mendel. Immediately after graduation he accepted a full-time position at Italian house of Domenico Vacca, and soon became Design Director. Fashion professionals recognized genuine talent, strong artistic presence and personal charm in Dmitry which resulted in offering him to create his own collection. That led to an even more challenging position at the Jones Apparel Group.

Dmitry speaks eloquently and confidently about his "metier", but becomes shy when it comes to naming all the awards and prizes that he received. However, it's worth mentioning GenART Award, Saga Furs Design Competition Award, Gap Design Competition Award, showcase at Debut, winner of 24 Hour Cat Walk (lifetime), winner of Project Runway season 10, amongst others. Dmitry has shown serious entrepreneurial initiative and accomplishments by creating his own brand Dmitry Sholokhov.  In March 2013 he showed his Fall 2013 collection in Moscow during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Dmitry’s exclusive collection for Lord&Taylor was presented in this US based specialty-retail department store chain in April 2013. In May 2013 he gave a presentation in Stockholm, Sweden on how inspiration comes to life through the technology (partnering with HP). In October 2013 Dmitry presented his Spring 2014 collection in Panama City, Panama as VIP international guest designer. 

 
In 2014 Dmitry Sholokhov returned to Television on Project Runway All Stars Season 4. It has been another journey filled with competition, and challenges to test the creative limits of best of the best designers. Dmitry has once again proved to the judges he reigns supreme, and was crowned a double victor: Dmitry Sholokhov now has the title of both Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars winner. In February 2015 Dmitry launched his exclusive collection for QVC.
 
When asked what made a difference in winning Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars, and receiving all the prizes that came with it, Dmitry says that all the accolades he got from Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Isaac Mizrahi and Nina Garcia inspired him and pushed him to "make it work", as Tim Gunn noted. His life motto: "It's not about winning. It's about winning again".
