Bravotv.com: What did you think when Fergie walked it?

Fergilicious!!?? My god is this woman hot! Dean and Dan said we could be sisters. Thanks for the compliment, boys! She was so fierce and confident. She loved the black long dress and all the garments. I only had a few minutes with her because Jim still had not shown up. I can't wait to design jewelry and clothing for her one day!

Bravotv.com: How did Emil help you along through the entire process? What have you learned?

I would not have been able to win without Mr Emil Gampe, Couturier. He is not only a class act, he is a master in what he does. When I first met him I asked him what his sign was and he said Cancer; I knew we were going to get  long. I'm a Capricorn and we are a match made in heaven!

Bravotv.com: What were you feeling when they said they were launching your line?

I blacked out. I didn't hear a thing and all of a sudden I saw the judges get on stage and the models come on with champagne glasses. It was surreal. I didn't really understand what was happening. Emil and I looked at each other and said, "What just happened??!"

Bravotv.com: What's next for you and Native Rose?

Rue La La, Native Rose, Bravo, Roseark, my new jewelry designs, infinite possibilities; the world is my oyster! I had the best time and I am so honored and proud to represent Native Rose and Bravo!!

Bravotv.com: Any words of advice for people out there looking to launch their lines?

Listen and educate yourself. Throw away the ego. Research. Don't be stubborn and a "know it all" just to wear the designer hat. Think outside of the box. Don't copy and pose. Don't be resentful, be a lover, not a hater. Know that you have plenty and everything is the divine appointment of time. Take risks and dream big!

well done. I have just watched the first series of the show on pay TV in Australia and loved it however i am very dissapointed to find out that we do not have access to purchases any of the clothing designs.

Kathy ,love your clothes but don't know how to get them I hope Bravo and Rue LaLa didn't used the true artist for selling adds ! I visited Rue LaLa few times and couldn't find the clothes so I am out of that site ,I know you are already established designer and have your own gallery why don't you offer your designs at ROSEARK .We love your jewels---- ALAIA and sisters

Congratulations! Your clothing is truly beautiful. Please get them out there somewhere else - Ruelala only had a small window of time to shop for your clothes and now nothing is available. There are many disappointed fans who want to buy your clothes.

Congratulations! I have two pieces of your jewelry, and you're very creative and talented. My absolute favorite on Launch was your "out of Africa" dress ... simply gorgeous! I hope you have great success in your new endeavor ... you deserve it!

P.S. Agree with Laraine that Merle was obnoxious. I hope she was kind to you after your win when the cameras weren't around.

You so totally deserved to win and Launch Your Line! You were so gracious and you are so talented. The egos around you were horrible. That Merle was obnoxious. I may have liked her line but yours was superior and your attitude the best! You go there girl!
