School of Fashion Grad Goes Head-to-Head on Project Runway
Since the season finale of Project Runway, Academy of Art University’s Alexandria von Bromssen has been buzzing with phone calls. She placed second in the fashion designer competition last Thursday. The experience was crazy and intense for the MFA Fashion grad, who participated in 13 challenges and averaged only four hours of sleep per night during the six weeks of filming of the Lifetime network television show. Overall, the show brought her out of her comfort zone and helped her designs stand out on a national scale. “I have 200 orders in my pocket off of things people saw on the show,” said Alexandria. She looks forward to opening a second store in San Francisco and expanding her sewing lessons for children called Camp Couture.
