Project Runway's Keith Michael has been a naughty boy!

It looks like Keith Michael (the winner of the very first challenge of the season) might have knocked off several different designers for "inspiration" in his sketchbook portfolio as seen in the first episode of PR. Credit to TWOP for the discovery and TFS for the screencaps.

I cant believe that people are still hitting this post but since they are, I will add Keith's response to these pictures which he posted on various blogs. I am not going to comment on it because I have every confidence that you can make your own mind up. :-)

hey guys-
"love your site and i read it often. so when i read the latest comments about me i thought it might be time to write in. for the record, i submitted 5 portfolios for the judges review. the one you seem to be focusing on was a research assignment i did for a client in which i reviewed key fashion trends. i'm very proud of all the work that i do. the panel of judges that reviewed my work had many years of experience behind them. i found them neither ignorant, uninformed or in any way confused about their own profession."
