Project Runway Season 15



YASSSS YA'LL life is so lit right now ! 

SO happy I can finally share this with the world ! I went MIA because I was filming Project Runway Season 15 and didn't have access to my phone the whole time. First of I want to say how grateful I am for this opportunity, I cant even begin to explain. I honestly thought I wasn't going to get on; it's not that I don't believe in myself its just that I never thought they would choose little ol' me out of the thousands of people who audition for the show. Fast forward three months and here I am part of the cast of project runway season 15 ! I am so incredibly proud of myself, this experience has helped me realize that hard work DOES pay off. It's crazy because just a couple months before I got on the show I was thinking about how hard I have been working, planting so many seeds doing so much and I just seemed to be plateauing. I wasn't ready to give up because winners never quit and quitters never win (this is my mantra when i feel like giving up) but I was really reconsidering everything. Then I had a sudden epiphany and I decided to continue planting I realized that the planting season wasn't over and I had to keep sowing. So I stayed the course remained on the trail and decided to try a little harder and then the universe rewarded me with this amazing blessing, I reaped all the hard work of that planting season and it helped learn that I can never give up ! Giving up is never an option, it does not matter how many times I fall I will get up, it does not matter how many obstacles I encounter or what terrible shit is put on my plate I will never give up. This opportunity showed me that; through hard work, resiliency and perseverance I can do anything I put my mind to.

It's still blowing my mind a little bit; I have to say that this has been the hardest thing I've ever done but also the most rewarding. I was stretched to my limits but I learned and grew so much from this experience. It truly is a dream come true, ever since I started designing I have wanted to get on the show, I never auditioned because I didn't think I was ready but this year I felt ready and decided to audition for season 15, and by the grace of God I got on the show ! This whole ride from the beginning till now has been insane. After sending my audition tape I got an invitation to go to the open casting and I was kind of sour about not getting a private interview so I was all like "I'm not going to go". My friend Cornelius convinced me to go to the open casting so I did and out of everyone in that open casting they choose Cornelius and I !!! It's amazing we got to have this experience of a lifetime together ! Corey and I grew really close throughout the past few years and although we are very different we surprisingly get along really well and I'm happy to share this experience with him.  Project runway is like fashion boot camp, I thought it was going to be difficult but I didn't realize how difficult it is until I was there, in it ! I literally felt like I was in the military lmao, fashion military. I'm still like omg okay I did that ! I'm happy I can finally share with the world, it was so awkward every time someone asked me about where I went and what I was doing because I couldn't say so I would just awkwardly lie because I am a terrible liar hahaha. If I lied to you I am so sorry I still feel bad. I have to say that it was amazing and if I could do it again I totally would, it was hard, taxing and terrible at times but it was a beautiful experience I learned so much and met some amazingly talented people along the way. It was totally worth everything I went through; I know I sound dramatic but I am not being dramatic at all. It's hillarious to me because before going on the show I would talk so much shit about the designers when they cried to freaked out and then after being in there I see why they did.  I'm like damn, life has this funny way of making you swallow your words and that is why it is so important they are sweet because sometimes you just get a mouth full of shit ! It was also really hard not being able to talk to my husband or my family the whole time and that was absolutely the most difficult part. I have never been apart from my husband for more than a couple of days since we started dating and even before then we were best friend so we have been spending most of our free time together since we were thirteen ! Going from seeing and speaking to him multiple times a day to none was horrible ! this experience also showed me just how much my husband and I love each and how he is absolutely the one for me, I missed him terribly and being apart helped me realize just how important he is in my life. I owe so much of my success to him; he has always believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself. He also has always supported all of my dreams and believed in them as well, he is even the reason behind JMag ! I came up with "JMAG" when we first got married, I didn't want to put my full married name on social media which consists of two last names so I used the first letter of the first last name and the first 3 letters of the second last name which resulted in "JMAG" and when I started designing it just stuck. Anyhow I am going to be making a vlog about the experience soon so I can talk about it more so stay tuned in the meantime

  3. Nathalia!!! It's Ms. Kelley and I just heard the great news about the show. I can't begin to tell you how proud I am. I always knew you would go far. Plus when you walked into Homeroom every morning I loved seeing your wild wardrobe. You've been yourself every minute of the way. Your story really is the definition of being resilient and never giving up. I have 9/15 starred on my calendar. Girrrrrrl, go get'em!!! I wish the best of luck!
