Blake Smith from "Under the Gunn" is one of the fashion designer contestants in the Lifetime reality competition series.

This uptight, highly competitive SCAD grad lives for "FASHION, not apparel." Blake Smith designs his uber-feminine, flowing garments as a form of escapism, and has little regard for the ready-to-wear market.

Blake had a loving, supportive, but turbulent upbringing—his mother has been married six times, and he and his brother moved around a lot as a result. He's still

close to the man he considers his father (though he has little contact with his biological dad). Blake credits his mom with inspiring his love for fashion; as a well-dressed kid, he stuck out like a sore thumb in small-town Georgia. Until he got to SCAD, he never thought he could have a career as a designer. He's openly gay, but admits that he prefers the company of women—he's never been in a relationship with a man. Blake has been designing for LC by Lauren Conrad for Kohl's for several years now, and he's ready to branch out and start his own line.
