One of my favorites from seasons past has to be Season 8 winner Gretchen Jones. Her win may have been controversial, but they threw together Project Runway All Stars, so Mondo still got his due. Mondo had undeniable talent for making the zany beautiful.
Gretchen, on the other hand, made things I actually wanted to wear, I wanted to live in her denim jumper, and her crazy hemlines and southwestern jewelry. She was my secret favorite and I was really pleased that she won because it meant that she would almost definitely go out into the world and make things I could actually buy! I've been keeping my eyes peeled and recently, her apartment has been featured on several interior blogs and zines I read. Boom! Website found! Online shop, perused! Right now I'm rather poor, but I still have hope that one day I can own a piece by one of my favorite rising designers.
When my ship does come in, here is what I will be getting.

|Childhood Flames Dress (Pony Print!) $321|
