Quote of Note | Bradon McDonald

bradon“You have to have nerves of steel in both industries [dance and fashion]. The drive, the focus as a dancer, the fact that your foot is split halfway open and bleeding halfway through a dance that’s two hours long makes no difference—you have to perform. Curtain up. And that is the same thing, every day, in the fashion industry. You have to produce. You can’t wait for the muse to fly out of the sky, and suddenly you design.

The time frame [on Project Runway] is so real. I thought, Okay, they say 30 minutes at Mood, but maybe you get a little extra time? No. It’s down to the second. You have 30 minutes to sketch, and then your sketchbooks go away. A one-day challenge is really a one-day challenge. I thought there was a little extra wiggle room here and there, but there really isn’t, and to make garments in a day that you are proud of is so difficult. You have no patterns, no textbooks, nothing. It was so frightening and thrilling and so exciting and completely exhausting.”

-Fashion designer and Project Runway season 12 contestant Bradon McDonald, a former member of the Mark Morris Dance Group, interviewed by Gia Kourlas in Time Out New York
