PROJECT RUNWAY WINNER, Gretchen Jones Interview, Only Designer Who Deserved to Win?
The Project Runway season finale, crowned Gretchen Jones as the new winner. Not a fan favorite, tired Michael Kors and Nina decided that Mondo Guerra was too youthful and Andy South was too wild to win the $100k prize. Translation, Mondo and Andy were too unique and fresh to represent the Project Runway brand. Instead we went with a more dull and granola approach to our endorsed fashion collection, so we chose Gretchen Jones. We are bringing the Grateful Dead back, 2010 style.
In a new interview, when Gretchen Jones was asked if she was surprised that she won, she said: “no not at all”. In fact, our egotistical brat had the audacity to say she was the only designer who DESERVED to win the latest season of the show. UGH! I wonder if Tim Gunn felt the same way? The Project Runway host this season that had no problem showing his disdain for the Oregon designer. I think Gretchen needs to hire a PR person fast, otherwise she’s going to have a major problem with her brand image.
In Gretchen Jones design collection Moth Love, she has a very 70’s style to her collection. On her web site it says, “Based on minimal and conceptual art principles, MothLove is ethereal and sexy in its very simplicity.Bohemian in lifestyle and design, Jones aims to create collections that beg to be worn and fallen in love with”. The designs on her web site are much more attractive than what was shown at Mercedes Fashion Week. Although, I think the designs could only be worn by woman who are incredibly slender like Gretchen. No curvy girls allowed.
What Astrochicks found most amusing on the Moth Love web site, was Gretchen Jones bio. She had the following written: “You can find Gretchen working on a her record collection, daydreaming about rides on a 67′ BMW R60/2 600, contemplating the metaphysical, playing with her long hair, wearing pretty lingerie, working too late, trying to eat healthy and somehow, always wishing she was sun bathing by the river…Mostly in her mind, and sometimes outside of her studio.” LOL!!! Oh please…
Astrologically, Gretchen Jones faces some challenges over the next two years. Born under the astrology sign of Capricorn, Saturn in Libra will square her Sun. This represents a challenging period faced with personal disagreements and feeling misunderstood. Mars in Libra square her Sun makes her insecure, which would explain her bashing of Michael Costello. Plain and simple, she was jealous.
Another astrologer has an interesting take on our Project Runway girl, you can view it here. I think Gretchen Jones is in for a rude awakening if she moves to New York. The Big Apple isn’t really tolerant of big egos, unless maybe your Madonna or Lady Gaga. For Gretchen Jones, she will be just a small fish in a big sea. Her best bet would be to find a mentor, who will help guide her through the design process and help find her voice. Otherwise, she may find out she’s only legend in her own mind. Stay tuned.
