Burning Questions

A creative use of grocery goods made Kelli a winner!

Jul 16, 2008

Had you ever used those treatments on those products before?
I bleach and dye often, but I don't even read the box! I just have a weird knack for making it turn out in an awesome pattern. I think that it is inbred. :)

Were you more confident after Tim came in and criticized everyone else for using "material"?
I was more confident, but I also knew that I had a strong point of view.

What did you think of the other designers' looks? Which were your favorites? Least favorites? Did you think Jerry deserved to go home?
I honestly thought, "I had better win this s*** because I am using a myriad of innovative techniques, and my dress has a closure!" I also sewed through my fingers, blistered my thumb and really put blood and sweat into it. As far as Jerry, I felt really bad, but I was obviously glad that I had won.

What was the first time in front of the judges like?
Hot and lengthy. I was wearing too many layers since they had to take my band T's [due to all the copyrights], so I felt like I was going to faint. I wasn't really nervous -- I was actually fairly confident -- but it was like a brick oven in there!
