As a self-described “guys-guy,” Logan loves extreme sports, cars and fashion design. Logan held a slew of jobs including bartender, concrete foreman, retail sales associate, a buyer and construction worker before he decided to pursue a career in fashion. As a child, he was taught by his grandmother how to work with leather. When Logan is not creating clothes, he is working on his ’67 Mustang. Logan’s strengths as a designer are creating street wear and edgy rocker looks. If he wasn’t a designer, he’d be a stuntman or a racecar driver. Logan is also a nationally ranked snowboarder.
Why he will win?
Tim Gunn: “Logan’s from Seattle, and you get a crunch-granola feeling in what he does.”
Oh, save us from anyone who describes themselves as a “guy’s guy” (especially when they render it “guys-guy”). You make dresses, honey. All the mountain bikes in the world aren’t going to make that any less true.
We tease, of course. We have no idea how much of these descriptions are accurate self-assessments from the designers themselves or merely the overactive imagination of someone on the Lifetime staff. Still, it’s not like we haven’t had these “I’m straight! And manly! Really!” types on the show before.
Anway, here’s his Spring 2009 Collection. It’s not really our thing, but it all looks fairly put together and polished.
And hey, here’s what he sounds like:
