BPR Interview with Andrae Gonzalo

Project Runway All-Star designer, Andrae Gonzalo talks about his experience on the show.  

BPR:  This is Laura Kluvo from Blogging Project Runway and I'm on the phone with Project Runway All-Star designer, Andrae Gonzalo - Hi Andrae!

AG:  Hello!

BPR:  Congratulations on making the cast of the All-Stars!

AG:  Thank you!

BPR:  What is the best thing about being an All-Star?

AG:  I have two answers actually.  First, there was a period of time during the filming that we believed that Michelle Obama was going to be a judge.  There was evidence that really fed that fantasy.  That was probably the best fifteen minutes of my life...

Also, being an independent fashion designer is just so difficult and for the first time in the history of the show, the prize is so generous.  Just contemplating the possibility of winning the prize... Not just the seed money, but the technology and the equipment and the SPACE.  I live in New York and space comes at a really big premium.  When you are making your own samples, you need a really big table and space is such a luxury.

Just the window - being able to look through that window into the opportunity, that was great.
