BPR Interview with Kahindo Mateene
Project Runway Season 12 designer, Kahindo Mateene talks about her experience on the show.
BPR: You used green tulle to mitigate the strength of your print. Do you think that was a good idea?
KM: The green tulle was originally supposed to be used at the bottom of the dress. After talking to Tim, I made the change. Of course I know now that the judges hated the print, which I don't understand, so even if I stuck with my original design, it probably wouldn't have helped.
BPR: What are you working on now?
KM: I am working on my seventh collection which is for Spring/Summer 2014 which I will be showing in New York in September. I also have just launched my online store. I am also working on a Kickstarter program which will be helping to provide jobs to women in Congo.
