Designer Interview: Monica of MaMeMiMo

We're back with another installment of our new series...Designer Interviews!  We LOVE the designers of Project Run & Play Seasons so much, that we decided to bring them back occasionally and ask them questions.

Next up is Monica of MaMeMiMo.  She was a designer on Season 20.


What have you been doing since your Season on Project Run & Play?

I’ve been sewing a lot, but nothing different from what I was doing before the contest.


What was your favorite part of your experience on Project Run & Play?

Seeing what the other participants made. It is amazing how can the same theme become such different amazing outfits.

What would you have done differently on your Season if you could do it over?

I think that I should have planned more and earlier. I never though that I would pass to the second round and my last week outfit was a little improvised.


Funny behind the scenes story?

For my first outfits we went to the Park Guell to take beautiful pictures of the kids with the Barcelona skyline on the background. My daughters skirt fabric was so much wrinkling that I didn’t let her sit on our 20 minutes bus trip! On our last outfit we decided it would be fun to use my sons new roller skates, that’s why he is never stand up in any picture... he just could not!


How did your family react/help during your experience?

They were absolutely committed and focused on the contest.


Advice for future competitors?

Plan everything. Even though you think you won’t get to the second week because you can do it, too.


Very well said, thank you Monica!  Besides reading her MaMeMiMo blog, you can find Monica on Instagram.
