RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Fashion designer and “Project Runway” finalist Justin LeBlanc will discuss how his ties to North Carolina influence his work in a program at the North Carolina Museum of History.

The program titled “High Tech Carolina Couture” will start at 3 p.m. Saturday at the museum in Raleigh. LeBlanc searched for North Carolina-based design and textile resources for his new collection, which includes fabric from Tar Heel textile mills and fabric designs that were custom-printed in Durham.

LeBlanc is an assistant professor at N.C. State University. He finished third on the 12th season of Lifetime’s reality television show “Project Runway” and was eliminated in the ninth of 13 episodes of the fourth season of “Project Runway All Stars.”

Free tickets will be distributed while they last beginning at 2 p.m.
