SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read any further if you don’t want to know who won Season 13 of Lifetime’s "Project Runway."

New Zealand designer Sean Kelly has been named the winner of "Project Runway" Season 13.

Hawaii designer Kini Zamora placed third in the TV design competition, behind Amanda Valentine, making it the second time a Hawaii designer has made it into the Top 3. Ari (then competing as Andy) South reached the Top Three in Season 8, finishing behind winner Gretchen Jones and Mondo Guerra.

Another Hawaii designer and HCC alum, Jay Sario, made it into the Top Four in season 7.

Zamora said, "I have no regrets about my designs. I stayed true to who I am as a designer.

"I had to please the judges, but I did what I wanted to do."

This season marked the sixth time Zamora auditioned for the TV design competition.

The 2005 Honolulu Community College alumnus most recently partnered with photographer and fellow designer Dean "Dinko" Satta to create the Kini and Dinko brand. Their inaugural collection will launch during a free fashion show taking place at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at Hawaii Convention Center as part of Hawaii Fashion Month.
