A Note from Gordana "My name is Gordana Gehlhausen and I am originally from former Yugoslavia. I grew up in a small Serbian Village in Bosnia and I knew growing up that there was so much more to life than raising corn and potatoes. I was always very creative and managed to dress completely different from everyone else. I knitted my first sweater when I was seven years old. However, to fully achieve my goal of designing required me to take drastic steps and I did so when I left home at the age of 18 and moved to the Croatian coast. From there I found my way farther west and ended up in Germany for my college education. Life took more unexpected turns as I moved to the United States and settled in Atlanta, Georgia. It was there that I started to fine-tune my designing skills by creating a children line. From there I moved to Charleston, SC where I opened my first GOGA boutique. I have been a boutique owner now for the past eight years and have recently moved to Southern California where I opened my newest shop in San Diego. I have also been extremely fortunate to be chosen as one of the sixteen contestants on the sixth season of Project Runway."
