"Project Runway" Season 8 Designer April Johnston created her first fashion masterpiece for herself — her prom dress!

Watch this contestant's "dark doll, transformed" aesthetic come to life in front of your (and Tim Gunn's) eyes and view April Johnston's portfolio to uncover her secret weapon: unstoppable sketch-to-life powers.
