Project Runway finally embraces an African

Hi everyone!
How was the weekend? I was working so it was not much of a weekend.
Project Runway is underway and finally an African, Korto Momolu managed to secure a place as one of the contestants on Project Runway Season 5. She is originally from Liberia but was fashion-trained in Canada. She later moved to Arkansas to pursue her passions which include weaving traditional African designs into contemporary clothing.

Korto is a multiple talent. She is a freelance photographer, does some African braiding and is also a makeup artist. I am eager to see how she progresses on Project Runway. She already has done well in the first episode where she was one of the top three designers. The challenge was to make clothing out of unusual sources. She made the dress below from a tablecloth, interesting right! Accessories were made from kale, cherry tomatoes and bell peppers! Way to go girl.

All the best to Korto! We are cheering.....

Korto has beautiful designs. A black should win this time I was disappointed when Michael lost last season. Korto don´t let us down.

I love the Bravo reality shows, especially project runway. I'm pretty confident that their new show, Fashion House, will be good too.

Regardless, I'm still enjoying PR 5 and the last 2 game. anyone playing this season?
