Q&A with Bradon McDonald of Project Runway Season 12

project runway bradon mcdonald 2_raanntThis season we’ve had the honor of interviewing several of the designers from Project Runway Season 12.  Bradon McDonald is one of our favorites this season and quite possibly one of the designers with a very good chance to make it to the top.  With a background in dance, Bradon continues to wow the judges with his creative, design aesthetic, honesty and his ability to adapt and learn.  We got the chance to find out a little bit more about Bradon; the man who so lovingly proposed to his partner on national television!!! That alone would have won us over!
