Meet "Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Andy South

"Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Andy South got his first taste of designing when he was gluing and stapling together Halloween creations. Today the young designer from Waipahu, Hawaii, has traded in the glue gun for a sewing machine and transformed his Hawaiian home into a designer’s paradise: draping room, a place to custom-dye fabrics and more than enough space for him to model his own designs.

View Andy South’s portfolio for sketches and more glimpses of his past collections, and to see which former "Project Runway" designer he (not so surprisingly) relates to. Then, check out a tour of his room-size closet — jealous, party of me! — to see if a typical Hawaiian shirt survives among the designer’s "Asian, punky, Goth-kid" garb.
