Those tight deadlines on Project Runway came back to haunt Mondo Guerra last week.
As we showed our Coco-licious readers last week, Heidi Klum wore one of the runner-ups designs at the Black Swan premiere. What we didn't know is that it was made the day before!!!
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!
