Korto Momolu-Briggs' tips to a successful "Olympic" win!

Aug 6, 2008

6. Several of your fellow designers seemed to go back in time. Why did you make the decision to keep your design modern?
I have a thing about staying in the present and leaving the past in the past. I love 2008, I'm glad to be here and I want design to represent our time. These days there are so many references to the past that it's hard to define the style of the 2000s. The 80s, 70s, and 60s all have specific looks that define that era, and we keep revisiting the fashion trends of those times.

7. How did it feel to win your first elimination challenge?
IT WAS GREAT TO WIN - especially after being in the bottom three last week. The win boosted my confidence and threw me back into the game full speed. So YEEEEAAAAH Korto!
