Fashion Alumna Autumn Kietponglert on Bravo's "Styled to Rock"
December 13, 2013 —
Fashion Design graduate alumna Autumn Kietponglert '07 is a contestant on Bravo TV's brand new fashion competition show, "Styled to Rock," starring Grammy-winning superstar Robyn "Rihanna" Fenty. Bravo airs the show every Friday night at 8 p.m. Kietponglert, a former designer-in-residence for the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator, was selected as one of 12 contestants to battle it out for a $100,000 cash prize, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine and the chance to become the next member of Rihanna's design team.
Autumn is currently one of the five final contestants remaining. She was recently interviewed in Philadelphia Style magazine (click here to read).
Her biography page on the "Styled to Rock" website reads:
"Unapologetic designer Autumn Kietponglert has never concerned herself with what others think of her and cares more about following her artistic vision with her avant-garde designs than getting along with her fellow designers. Kietponglert says that her best design inspirations come from her dreams, which are detailed visions of the unseen world. Adept to more complex designs, her talents were recognized when she received the RAW Artist of the Year for Fashion Design in 2012."

The next episodes of "Styled to Rock" will air on Bravo TV tonight at 8 p.m. EST and next Friday, December 20 at 8 p.m., with the finale on Friday, December 27 at 8 PM EST.
