so yall already know this, but i just found out. (thanks jason and erika). one of the final contestants from project runway season 8 is Lao! represent!! anyway, he didn't win, which means that there ain't 2 project runway winners from Laos. a previous winner from season two, chloe dao, is from Laos, although she is ethnically viet. andy south woulda really begun a Lao dynasty of winners for ths show! (a big number 2!!!)
well, like i said, he lost. and he also lost the rest of his name. apparently, he used to be andy southiphong, but he or somebody else trimmed off the last two syllables of his name and tossed it to the floor like discarded scraps of cloth from one of his project runway creations.
but i guess he stayed true to Lao culture and all things Lao by ordering cloth from Laos for his final creation and dedicating it all to his mother. i've never watched the show, but it seems pretty interesting. they make clothes out of nothing, (or something in this case) and here is how andy's final line turned out, and at the bottom of the page you'll find a recap of the final episode -
