We don't know what you were (or are) doing in your 20s, but Katelyn Pankoke of Elaya Vaughn Bridal has already successfully launched her own line and has competed on the hit show Project Runway. We followed this local talent the first time she hit it big, so we don't think she's going anywhere anytime soon.

Pankoke was just given a second chance to compete for a spot on the upcoming season 12 of Project Runway — and she's in it to win it. Through social media (the way of the world these days) and MyLifetime.com, you can help Pankoke's dream become a reality beyond television by voting for her on Twitter.
“I’m so honored and grateful to have been given the chance to compete again," says Pankoke. "With the teams' approach of Season 11, the judges and viewing audience never actually had the chance to see what I can really do.” We don't know about you, but we felt she got cheated last season with her prom-dress creation. Like, what did you wear to your prom? Just sayin'.
So, get out your phone and start tweeting! To thank you for your support, Pankoke is giving two lucky fans who tweet #RunwayKate @ProjectRunway a chance to win the gorgeous dress she was wearing in the elimination episode, as well as her reunion-show dress. Sounds like a win-win to us!
