Season 8: Gretchen Jones
Gretchen’s Season 8 win was pretty controversial – because everyone and her mom (including mine) and Tim Gunn was rooting for runner-up Mondo Guerra. But that’s not actually Gretchen’s fault, so we’ll put our bitterness aside for now. Alright now, where were we?
Ms. Jones, who favored natural materials and bohemian influences, now resides in Brooklyn and, through her line, supports Save the Garment Center, an NYC-based organization that promotes ethical business practices for craftspeople. In July, she launched an exclusive jewelry collection through Piperlime.com, donating 100% of the profits to charity Aid to Artisans. Images of her recent RTW collections are available on her website, as well as jewelry for purchase.
