Project Runway’s Mondo Guerra Designs Piperlime Tees for World AIDS Day

Mondo Guerra should have won season 8 of "Project Runway." That's a fact. His vibrant designs -- typified by colorful separates and eye-catching accessories -- wowed both viewers and judges Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and Nina Garcia.


Okay, Nina and Michael weren't big fans of his finale polka dot tube dress, but Heidi and guest judge Jessica Simpson loved it.

Instead, plain Jane hippie "chic" designer Gretchen Jones was awarded the season 8 title.  Although Mondo was totally robbed of the top honor, he emerged as the season's favorite designer and will hopefully become one of the world's biggest new designers.  He's already off to a good start.

In celebration of Word AIDs Day (Dec. 1) and to help raise awareness, the HIV-positive designer has joined forces with Piperlime and created two limited-edition, bold graphic tees ($50 each), printed on Nation LTD t-shirts.  Twenty dollars of every tee sold will be donated to amfAR, an organization dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research.
The tees capture Mondo's "Live and Love" passion and will be sold exclusively on piperlime.com beginning Wednesday, Dec. 1
