Louanna Rawls: The Right Direction

The first challenge winner talks about her first design, her personal style, and more.

Bravotv.com: Expand on what made you want to start your own fashion line.

Louanna: I've always been in love with fashion, and to see my vision come to light has always been a dream of mine. I have a great eye and I know what is flattering to a woman's body.

Bravotv.com: How would you define your own personal style?

Louanna: My own personal style is classic with a little edge.

Bravotv.com: Your personal item was your grandma's earrings. Why did you choose that item?

Louanna: I chose her earrings because they were simple and elegant, which is what my line is based on.

Bravotv.com: You chose an asymmetrical dress as your signature piece. Expand on why you made that decision.

Louanna: I chose it because it really shows off the bodice.

Bravotv.com: You had a major set-back when oil got on the dress. Describe how you were feeling and how you made it work.

Louanna: The oil on the dress was a stressful moment because of the light color of the material, but because of the draping of the garment it was able to be covered.

Bravotv.com: How did you get along with your design expert Jim? Did you immediately work well together?

Louanna: Jim and I were a perfect fit from the start, he also has a great sense of style.

Bravotv.com: The judges absolutely loved your design. How did it feel to be the first challenge winner?

Louanna: It was amazing to be the winner of the first challenge, and it showed I was going in the right direction.

Bravotv.com: Where do you think Dan went wrong?

Louanna: I think Dan took on more than he could handle with his first design.
