"Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Kristin Haskins Simms is a professor — but not in the type of design many of the other contestants have been schooled in. With no formal fashion training, this Philly-based graphic designer got bit by the fashion bug when she started creating T-shirts. One tee led to a jacket, which led to a collection. Check it all out in the photo gallery of her past work!

Let Kristin Haskins Simms teach you the art of fabulous bargain-hunting in her closet tour, then discover what makes this contestant tick by cruising on over to her designer portfolio.
