We are SO proud of her!
Project Runway's Andy South was a season 8 finalist who was an outwardly gay man.
And now, the Hawaiian designer has completed the transition into turning into a woman, confirming the news on her Facebook page and changing her name to Nong Ariyaphon Southiphong.
"Thank you to my fans and friends who have supported me all the way. To my family for seeing me for me and for all the love I am surrounded with. I am blessed to be so accepted and welcomed just the way I am. May that love flow through me and onto many others. Live in love for the world needs it."
We are so proud of your bravery, Nong! And we are most looking forward to your upcoming designs!
