Local designer wins "DWTS" costume contest

PHILADELPHIA - November 4, 2011

Amanda Wolff found out Friday that she won Dancing's "Macy's Design a Dance" contest.

The 22-year old showed Lisa Thomas-Laury her costume designs earlier this week.

Wolff honed her sewing skills at the Mason Gross design school at Rutgers, and landed an apprenticeship at the Walnut Street Theatre.

She is understandably ecstatic about the win.

"It's been quick," said Amanda. "I'm still really excited, and I haven't really gotten to think about it too much, but yeah, it's awesome."

Wolff will travel to Los Angeles to see her creations revealed on the ballroom floor November 15th.

You can see it live right here on 6abc.
