(NEW YORK) Designer Robert Geller was named the winner of the "Best New Menswear Designers in America" project. In its second year, the project is a collaboration between GQ and the CFDA. Judge and GQ creative director Jim Nelson called him "a significant--and welcome--new force in the American men's fashion scene." Geller won $50,000 and will create a limited-edition Levi's collection.

Geller attended the Rhode Island School of Design and has worked under Marc Jacobs. The other notable contestants he beat out--who all partied on February 10 to celebrate--included Outkast's Andre "3000" Benjamin's line, Benjamin Bixby, Yigal Azrouel, David Mullen's Save Khaki, Alex Carleton's Rogues Gallery, and Shipley & Halmos.
