Those tight deadlines on Project Runway came back to haunt Mondo Guerra last week.
Mondo was conveniently in El Lay last week when he got the call:
"As I was packing to come back to Denver my cell phone rang and a bright, cheery, 'Hello' greeted me, with a German accent. I wasn’t sure who it was, but the next thing I knew, the voice on the other end was asking me, 'Do you have my dress?'"
Right before leaving Mondo had a quick fitting with Heidi and jetted back to Denver to create her custom dress.
"The next morning I came back to my studio and made the dress, shipped it overnight for early morning delivery. I knew she had received the dress, but was she going to wear it? I opened Facebook and there on my page were pictures of Heidi wearing the dress. I yelled, 'She wore it!' I slept very well last night."
What a crazy, but amazing story!
Congrats, Mondo! We hope to see more of your designs on the red carpet soon!
