Gordana Gehlhausen may be one of the oldest designers to compete on Project Runway, but that doesn't mean she can't keep up with the competition.
Growing up in a small Serbian village in Bosnia, Gehlhausen knew she wanted to be a designer at the age of 7 , when she knitted her first sweater. Determined to make her dreams a reality, she moved to Germany for college and eventually settled in Atlanta, Georgia.
Once in the U.S., Gehlhausen continued to fine-tune her design skills and launched a children's collection. She opened her first boutique in Charleston, South Carolina 11 years ago and hasn't looked back.
Gehlhausen appeared on season six of Project Runway and placed fourth overall, narrowly missing a spot in the top three and the opportunity to showcase her designs at Bryant Park.
Since appearing on Project Runway, Gehlhausen has expanded her boutique business to the West Coast. She recently opened a second location of GOGA by Gordana in downtown San Diego and was cast as a contestant on Project Runway All Stars.
Unfortunately, Gehlhausen made an early exit on last week's episode of Project Runway All Stars. The designers were tasked with creating a dress for one of the pickiest women in Hollywood — Miss Piggy. Miss Piggy also weighed in as a guest judge and sadly, Gehlhausen's dress missed the mark. Gehlhausen was sent packing and Michael Costello won, with his creation being deemed "fit for a pig."
With one more talented designer gone, who will be the last one standing on Project Runway All Stars? Rami Kashou, Austin Scarlett and Mondo Guerra are fan favorites, and we have a feeling the competition is only going to get more fierce. Tune in to Lifetime Thursday nights to see who makes it through to the end.
