It may have been almost a year since Leanne Marshall won Project Runway with her aqua and ivory origami collection, but the designer has hardly been taking it easy since her victory. We caught up with the designer as she was shooting the images for her debut collection for, which ranges in price from $98 for a top to $990 for this extravagant blue gown. Leanne tells PEOPLE that while she wanted to keep her signature floral and petal inspiration in the line, she wanted to open the designs up to a wider range of people than her runway collection. She explains, “I wanted to keep it a little more simplified and accessible. A lot of people can wear it day to day. It’s not overpowering on any body, and the price points are affordable.” As for Leanne, she is still just taking in what the win has meant for her. “I’m living my dream. It’s been such a process getting here, and I still have a long ways to go until I can be Michael Kors.” And while she does keep in touch with her pals from the show and, yes, Tim Gunn too, she has only words of encouragement for the next round of designers in the show’s first L.A.-based season, saying “I hope that the designers that are on the next season have as great an experience as I did.” Check out Leanne’s line when it debuts at next Wednesday!
