Desiree Hartsock will debut her latest fashion design on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette. The star shared this exclusive sketch with PEOPLE and talked with the magazine about everything from the inspiration to future designs.
What was the inspiration behind the bejeweled cobalt number? “I wanted to design a gown that was elegant and timeless while still having an edge, glamorous but not overdone,” Des said. “I love to design gowns that are unexpected with different design detail or an interesting back.” Desiree added that she enjoys working with bold colors and thought the gemstone neckline would be a nice change from the sequin frocks she would don throughout the season.
The bachelorette has plenty of design experience as she studied at L.A.’s Fashion institute of Design and Merchandising. Did you know Des designed the red lace mini she wore on the first night of The Bachelor? Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of Desiree’s creations soon as the star revealed she will be designing her wedding gown when she finds her prince charming.
