Favorite past Project Runway Designer: Amanda Valentine

 

Even as a child, Valentine was already designing: creating outfits for her Barbies and even a biker chick look for herself using her mom’s old pantyhose and drapes. She first started sewing at age 8, went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Clothing Textiles and Design from the University of Nebraska and now designs for her own line VALENTINE VALENTINE. She is influenced by ancient Egypt, West African beading and South American textiles and is obsessed with mashing up countercultures.

Why she’ll win?

Valentine understands how modern, creative, edgy women want to dress. With her past experiences in Project Runway, she has no fears and is prepared for any challenge that comes her way. She’s ready to win this time because why else would she come back?
