Char (short for Charketa).

When did you realize you had designer potential?

When I graduated from high school, I would make mine and my friends' clothes.

First garment you ever made?

I made some outfits for a dance group. I basically only used spray paint, safety pins, and needle and thread. I was so ambitious!

What's your design training/schooling, etc.?


Have you won any awards for your designs/work related to design?

I was nominated as 2012 Womenswear Designer of the Year from the Detroit Fashion Group, however I didn't win.

Strengths as a designer?

Construction and fit.

Weaknesses as a designer?


What are your influences?

My past influence was anything vintage. Now I'm the total opposite: I'm obsessed with modern, clean, sleek lines with BOLD colors.

What's playing on your iPod when you're designing?

Chrisette Michele, Anita Baker, Teena Marie (I love R&B).

Favorite material or fabric to work with?

Stretch crepe and knits.

Biggest fear as a designer?

Creative block (oh nooo!!).

Fashion must?

All things denim.

Fashion faux pas that drives you crazy?

Nothing really! Fashion has no limits.

Ugliest item of clothing/accessory you've worn?

See-through clear plastic combat boots. I was in high school, I thought I was hot stuff....ha!

Favorite style icon?

Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie rules the world!).

What would you design for the First Lady?

A two-piece pantsuit in soft mint green, pants flowy with a slightly wide leg, shirt tailored and fitted.

Celebrity you wish you could design for?

Solange Knowles [insert scream here]. A one-piece shorts romper, printed fabric with side-seam pockets, and a long-sleeve sheer top with pop of solid color.

Favorite supermodel muse?

Naomi Campbell.

If you had to name your label, you'd call it...

I already have a label I freelance design for called Chargrels Couture.

If you weren't designing, you'd be...

A hairdresser (my first love).

Dream place to set up your business?

Los Angeles.

Websites that feature your work?,

How were you described as a kid?

Outgoing, funny, and smart.

How are you described by your family and friends?

Outgoing, goofy, and focused!

Why do you think you're easy to live with?

I'm easy because I try to be as considerate as possible of others, but I think I'm super moody. I like my quiet time.

Favorite hangout?

PV Lounge in downtown Detroit.

"Trading Places," "Coming to America," "Shawshank Redemption." TV shows: "Scandal."

Guiltiest pleasure?

Being a couch potato watching TV for a whole day. Soda and junkfood.

Biggest pet peeve?

Complainers and loud people.

How did you end up auditioning for PR?

Yes, I auditioned two times before with no callback. Then I decided to make my own home video and try again, and kept it a secret until I was a semi-finalist.

Favorite past PR designer?

Seth Aaron, Season 7.

Challenge you wish they'd bring back?

Make-your-own-fabric challenge.

Challenge you hope they don't?

Tall stilts challenge.

Your take on team challenges:

I don't mind working in teams. Challenges make champions.

What do you look for in a model?

Height is important. Hair doesn't really matter but she has to have confidence and a mean walk!

Do you think you can win "Project Runway"?

Yes of course! I'm what the fashion world needs: a breath of fresh air. I break all the rules. #RecklessDreamer :)
