The Project Runway Blog
Category: "andy south"
"Project Runway" Season 8 finalist Andy South has been keeping very busy since we last saw him at New York Fashion Week. When he's not working on launching his secondary line, SOUTH by Andy South, hitting the market February 2011, he's been creating a custom gown for the state of Hawaii's First Lady-elect, Dr. Nancie Caraway.
Andy shared a blog with us that has tracked the evolution of the First Lady of Hawaii's inaugural dress into a complete ensemble: http://paularathandhawaiisfashionforum.wordpress.com. Today's inauguration of Hawaii Governor-Elect Neil Abercrombie will reveal the final look Andy designed for Dr. Caraway.
"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.
