Being aufed from this season of Project Runway didn't get Victorya Hong down.
Being aufed from this season of Project Runway didn't get Victorya Hong down. In fact, she came back full force and staged a whole runway show last week at New York Fashion Week — more than those still left on Project Runway can say for themselves, since they shared a catwalk. Just minutes before her label, Na-Be by Victorya Hong, made its runway debut, Bella (thanks doll!) caught up with Victorya for a few Fab words . . .
Is this the first time you've done a big show like this?
Yes; I'm scared.
And everyone keeps saying, "Scared? Well, okay, that means you're excited." And I say, "That means I'm really excited."
So a year ago, if someone had told you that you'd be showing at the Altman Building, what would your response have been?
I think a year ago that would have probably been something I never would have imagined. Even though it's happening now, it's still kind of hard to believe that it's happening!
