From the Hell's Belles motorcycle club through the underground club scene in LA, few have had a more improbable path to the cast of Project Runway than Sweet P. Our hearts melted when she congratulated Chris and Rami after being the last designer eliminated, but in the end she got to show in Bryant Park anyway. BPR checks in with the popular designer who truly lives up to her name.
BPR: Sweet P, we were thrilled when we saw you appear from behind the scrim at the Project Runway Finale. What was the inspiration for your collection?
Sweet P: My inspiration for the collection was Lee Miller (who I notice is beingwritten about a lot lately). Lee Miller was Man Rays model, muse and girlfriend. She was also a photographer. Lee was ahead of her time. I would call her a modern day Chloe Sevigny. She is a bold , strong woman who has her own sense of style. She is not afraid to wear color in a sea of black. My muse is a hip, pulled together downtown girl.
BPR: Did you receive the same amount of time and budget as the other designers?
Sweet P: Yes
BPR: What was the best thing about appearing on Project Runway?
Sweet P: Meeting and bonding with all the other designers.
BPR: The hardest?
Sweet P: Lack of sleep
