Finale Rewind

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:45am GMT

As you may or may not know, the “Project Runway” show at Fashion Week in February actually involves more than just the finalists, so that the audience (and the Internet at large) doesn’t spoil future episodes in advance. The first time I personally became aware of this was when I was scrolling through New York Magazine’s site and realized I was looking at the collection from Season 2 designer Kara Janx, who got the boot before the finale. (And then I thought I had uncovered some vast fashion conspiracy before it all clicked together.)

Having been in the audience for this year’s show and not knowing who was actually making it forward to the final three, I have to say that these happened to be the top three contestants whose work stood out to me then amongst the record-setting 10 who showed that day. And 10, FYI, is a whole lotta look!

I remember people actually gasping when Seth Aaron’s first piece on Kristina came out, Michael Kors raving about Emilio’s gold metallic dress (FYI: One of my many talents is long-distance lip reading!), and being impressed that Mila roughed up the models’ looks (which, hey, was Michael’s advice — other talent: psychic abilities!). These three finalists, whether you liked their personalities or their aesthetic or not, really brought forward some of their best work and persevered through some serious sleep deprivation and other pressure-cooker situations to get this far.

Who had the strongest Fashion Week collection?


Project Runway Season 7 Finale Collections

Favorite looks?

Clearly, Emilio’s knockout gold stunner.

Lorena’s coat and dresswith a more polished version of his ESosa branding — was impeccable. (And why does her eye makeup always look phenom?)

Seth Aaron’s opening look really set the tone for this entire collection, and I loved the way he always had interesting tights paired with “simple” pieces.

Appreciated Mila’s use of separates, the touches of shine and the fact that I could see women wearing these every day with pieces they already have. They don’t need an “excuse” to dress up.

Enough about the finale; let’s move on to the reunion special. Thoughts:

1. I am disappointed that Janeane didn’t do one last cry, but Ping covered that for us.

2. If I were Valeria, I would be stomping around in a fit of rage, because as much as I love Kristina, she would have, de facto, won. But I love Kristina even more for acknowledging the sadness of that situation.

3. The “allegiance to models” conversation kind of confuses me. Yes, it’s probably easier to keep the same model, because you are familiar with how your clothes fit on her body, but they are GIVEN the OPTION to switch! Build a bridge! (Or a dress!)

4. OH. EM. GEE. Nuns wept somewhere in an Irish village when Jay threw out the insult heard ’round the world to poor Cerri. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!

5. Maya’s in-show and post-show responses as to why she left were pretty much one and the same, offering no clarity to anyone, and or to my insatiable need for the truth!

6. Finally, I’ll say it once again: Anthony needs his own show.

Color Blocking vs. Cuckoo Chanel

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:03am GMT

Ah, the home visits. At least poor Tim wasn’t trucking through mounds of Long Island’s finest snowbanks this season.

Starting off with Seth Aaron’s humble abode, we see a (mostly) black collection of leather badass-ery. One hundred percent Seth Aaron’s aesthetic. However, Tim has another point of view that can best be described via a comic book–esque series of photos:

“What the hell is this?”



“Stuff that’s gonna rock?”



“Stuff that’s gonna make you lose.”



“What?”



“Redo it.”



“What?”



“All.”




And they hugged it out by playing Pictionary and jumping on trampolines.




Is this a setback? Absolutely. He’s down time, money and sanity, but knowing that this man can crank out multiple pieces in record time, I’m not too concerned. Oh, Tim.

Tim’s flying back across the country (remember when he used to drive there?) to New York to visit Emilio, who is totally throwing me off by not wearing a hat. He shows off a few pieces to Tim, who is less than thrilled. Emilio has upped the ante and created himself a proper logo to have E Sosa take over the world, which, as you know, Tim loves so much. I brace for fashion fisticuffs. Can we just move on? I’m scared!

Back across the country again, we visit Mila on the one day it has rained in Los Angeles. Ever.

Mila and Jay are going head-to-head for the final spot at Fashion Week, so these are the looks I’m most interested in seeing.

While we lovingly give her flak for always creating looks that are black and white, it’s what she’s good at. And, appropriately enough, the colors of her pet dog. Genius!

Also in California, Jay is creating some interesting looks (“It’s Cuckoo Chanel, girl!”) that, of course, also have Tim worried.

This is the first time in a long time I have seen Tim give such worrisome speeches at these home visits. All of them. Not one “Great! Don’t doubt yourself!” Now I really don’t know what to expect.

Rendezvousing back in New York, Mila and Jay have their game faces on … and a three-look collection to show. Emilio assists Mila (whose additional models — Holly Kiser and Shannon Pallay — are both from Season 1 of “Make Me a Supermodel”!), and Seth Aaron helps Jay on the finishing touches before showtime.

Did the right person make it through to Fashion Week?


So, did the right person make it through? Are Emilio and Seth Aaron going to want to overhaul their entire collections based on Tim’s critiques? We’ll find out next week!
