Please stop here if don't want to read what happened on last night's finale of Project Runway. You can't unread what I'm about to write. Ok..... here goes. Joshua with his dramatic eyebrows, Anya with her magical accent that make me feel like I'm on vacation, Victor with his sheer and patterned clothing, and Kimberly with her urban-focused inspiration showed their collections, faced the judges, and one of them was named the winner of Project Runway on last night's show. You can click here to visit the fabulous Blogging Project Runway to see the collections in entirety. I'm curious what you all thought and do you believe the right person won?
Anya all along was one of my favorites with her charming Caribbean accent, spot-on sense of pattern and fabric selection, and personal style. She had only been sewing for something like 4 month prior to the competition and it showed- sort of. We never saw a jacket or properly executed sleeve in any of her designs. But what she did have was an undeniably gorgeous sense of fantasy vacation wear.
Joshua was a rather intriguing character. He's quite a handsome fellow with some of the oddest drawn-on eyebrows seen on a man. His sense of style is all over the place.... some good and some what the f&%K designs but he's always entertaining.
Victor seemed the clear cut winner to me. His outfits were perfectly and I mean perfectly crafted and some of his outfits were simply incredible. That opening piece had a nod to McQueen and I'd love to see someone wearing that. I did think he'd win.
Kimberly, Kimberly, Kimberly..... I think she had some interesting pieces, that cream outfit was beautiful but overall I think she came up a little short.
So who won? In what certainly was a giant upset, Anya in spite on being limited in sewing ability pulled out a victory and I screamed hurray! So happy for her. You can disagree and that's fine but I liked her collection a lot and I'm glad she won. Here's her opening piece.
Just amazing! I drew Anya this morning and here goes my rendition of the winning contestant drawn with pen and ink on 8.5" x 12" hot pressed watercolor paper.
Congrats to Anya.
