Aug 6, 2008

2. What was the key to success in this particular challenge?
The most important thing was to put yourself in the athlete's shoes. What you would like to wear? What you would feel comfortable in? And what would best represent the country during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games?

3. Have you ever watched the Olympic opening ceremony?
Actually, I always watch the opening ceremonies. I love seeing all the countries, especially if Liberia is represented. I get really excited.

4. What did you think of having an actual Olympian, Apolo Ohno, as guest judge? I thought it was great to have Apolo Ohno, because he was who we were designing for. His opinion was valued and he knew what he would have liked to wear. I'm glad he liked mine!

5. What did you think of the garments created by the other designers?
Terri's was great. I thought Jennifer's outfit wasn't as bad as it was projected to be.
