Bring us up to speed!

OMG... A lot of doors have opened for me. I have a manufacturing deal in the works and am participating in a big fashion show with 3 other "Project Runway" fashion designers for our Gay Pride Week. Have been super busy with lots of new clients also.

 

What garment from your season of "Runway" do fans compliment you on the most?

The black suit that I won in my season's first challenge and the garment inspired by my Berlin trip.

Helping others and just being positive.

 

Who has been your favorite client to design for?

My favorite client has been the one who has asked for the winning suiting and the garment from Germany.

What "Project Runway" challenges do you think are the best and worst of all time?

The best was my trip to Germany, the outfit inspired by that. The worst was the duct tape challenge. LOL!
