Joshua McKinley from "Project Runway" is one of the contestants in Season 9 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. He is a 25-year-old assistant designer for private-label brands in New York City. He was raised though in Cleveland, Ohio. He has also done freelance design work.

When he was 18 years old, Joshua McKinley ("Project Runway 9") moved to New York to attend the The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. While there,

he realized he was on his journey—his path, if you will—and that he had something to give and a voice to be heard through clothing. While there, he was selected to participate in a fashion-show challenge between 15 FIT students and 15 Parsons students, who each developed a five-look collection shown over the course of two days. He also went to the Polimoda Fashion School in Florence, Italy.

His favorite designers are Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor & Rolf, and Gianni Versace. McKinley considers tailored blazers and a haute pair of boots to be fashion musts. He says his design strength is his ability to choose color and fabrics and follow notions that might otherwise go unused or untried, put 'em all in a blender, and come out with something truly exciting and inspiring. He finds that there is something new to learn every day as a designer. Over the years, his designs have been influenced by his love for dramatics and the arts. Growing up in the theater has been a driving force in who he is as a designer. When he's designing, he likes listening to Katy Perry, Mannequin, Jordin Sparks and One Step at a Time—and right now he says he is living for some old-school Brandy!
