Project Runway Finale!

Thursday, March 06, 2008

I wouldn't call myself a fan of reality television, but I do love Project Runway! Last night's finale was the best yet in terms of sophistication and construction. Each designer adopted a signature detail within a collection of Fashion Week-worthy garments, and each collection was spectacular. My favorite was Jillian's collection. I thought it was cohesive, I loved the corset detailing on a few of her pieces, and I thought her collection was the most wearable. I would definitely wear the grey hoodie coat with red lining to catch an indie flick and lounge in a tea room. Her best piece in my opinion? The LBD with the poofy skirt and plunging neckline. Sexy with a capital S-E-X-Y.

While I liked individual pieces from Rami's collection, I found it a bit more random than the others. Just when he starts forming a pattern, he changes direction. Although, he does showcase some amazing details- like the dress with the woven bodice- and I loved the petal sleeves. Overall, pretty cocktail dresses, beautiful fabrics, gowns that were great to look at, but looked to be a bit hard to maneuver in.

And now for the winner of Project Runway- Christian. No doubt he does amazing work- the kid makes a fierce (for lack of a better word) skinny pant. I think my only complaint was that it was so dark, that it was hard to see all of the detail. You can tell there's a lot going on by the volume, but the television doesn't always translate that. However, the collection was strong with the drama you come to expect from Christian. Now that's fierce.
