Local Designer Alison Victoria Gets Her Own Show
When I interviewed interior designer Alison Victoria for our March/April 2011 “Makeover” issue, I thought to myself, this girl has star power! Now her talent and charisma have won Victoria the position of host of the upcoming TV series “Kitchen Crashers,” which premieres October 10 on the DIY Network. The showis the latest in the network’s “Crashers” franchise, in which the host/expert approaches unsuspecting DIY-ers while they’re shopping at a home improvement store, and offers to take on their project for free. Judging by the kitchen we covered (shown above), Victoria will have plenty of ideas for her lucky unwitting clients.
