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.
