What was it like meeting Tim and Heidi for the first time?
The sun was so pretty in Bryant Park and all the contestants were so good looking, the enthusiasm and nervousness was physical in the air when Tim and Heidi walked up...it was a confirmation of..."okay, this is real."

What was your impression of the first challenge -- to express who you are as a designer?
I was thrilled to be able to express my mercurial nature in a dressing similar to many that I had designed for my own shows, press, and clients.... I was very curious how it would be recieved and critiqued.
