STEVEN ROSENGARD, 33
Assistant curator at the Museum of Science and Industry and independent fashion designer // Lives in Lake View
At the moment, Rosengard is curating his first museum exhibit (it opens next January at the Massillon Museum in Massillon, Ohio), and he’s looking for a storefront for his growing bridal gown business. The former Project Runway contestant says his days of getting recognized in the gym are behind him, but that’s fine: He’s been living with his boyfriend since February.
How did you guys meet? “We met at a friend’s party. He said he always saw me in the coffee shop, but he was too scared to say hello. I was like, ‘Are you stalking me?’”
So it wasn’t a setup. “No one’s ever tried to set me up. Either people don’t like their friends or they don’t like me.”
Any big plans for you two? “There’s a vague possibility of a cat, as long as I get a storefront. Alley cat or mountain lion, it doesn’t matter.” —M.B.
