She will be missed…
The designer competed on the first season of the hit reality TV competition show where she placed third, and appeared on the second season of Project Runway All Stars where she was eliminated in the second episode.
Lifetime released the following statement:
“We are saddened to hear of the passing of another member of the Project Runway family, designer Wendy Pepper, this year… Wendy was one of the original designers that sent creations down the catwalk, paving the way for other designers to come. We wish her family and friends peace during this difficult time.”
Her death notice read:
“She was an artist who proudly forged her own path in life. A finalist on season one of Project Runway, Wendy designed and hand-sewed exceptionally beautiful clothes for children and adults… She was a chef, a writer, and a life-long entrepreneur. Her wit and humor were unmatched, as was her generosity of spirit.”
