That evening, Abi donned one of her very first designs and Extra’s host Dayna Devon noticed. The small screen darling made a beeline for Abi and exclaimed, “Where did you get that top? I love it!” Abi smiled and without thinking, announced, “I made it. I’m a designer.”And, there it was. Dayna Devon said she had to have it.
