Update: The winner of the $200 Lulu*s giftcard is Migdalia – @MsLatina with the following comment: “I love this Shift dress. I think it would look great with slim jeans!
While I tend to shy away from bright, bold colors and gravitate towards gray, black or beige, this season I’m totally smitten with all things bright (picture a modern, more sophisticated spin on the 80’s neon trend). Best of all I’m lovin how easy it is to incorporate “happy colors” into any outfit, on any occasion, via accessories, scarves and even shoes. Tip: keep the outfit simple and let the color do all the work. Same goes for accessories – for a more reserved take on the trend, pair it with basics like a blazer or favorite jeans. Check out some of my favorite bright picks for this season from Lulu’s and how you can win a $200 Lulu’s gift card to get your brights!

What was your fashion background prior to Project Runway?
I’ve always been an artist for as far back as I can remember. I’m a self-taught designer and before Project Runway I worked as a set designer for TV and as a fashion stylist.
How have things changed for you after Project Runway?
My world has changed because of my experience on Runway. I’m, now, able to work full-time as a fashion designer instead of it being just a hobby. My Christopher Straub for maurices Collection is an absolute “Dream come true” and it may not have been possible if not for Project Runway.
What inspires your designs?
I find my inspirations from nature and it drives my creativity. Flowers, stones, ripples in water…whatever…it sparks something inside me.
Who’s your favorite designer?
My all-time favorite designer is the late Alexander McQueen. He was a fashion genius who took risks and challenged the limits of the female form.
