The Project Runway finale on Thursday was quite the event. I was so, so, so nervous. You should definitely check out Tim Gunn's Blog, his opinions are spot-on and well supported.
Seth Aaron: I thought Seth Aaron's collection accurately displayed his edgy sense of style that he has shown the whole season, but with a level of maturity. It was an interesting combination that he pulled off seamlessly. I thought every one of his pieces demonstrated his impecable craftsmanship. I was rooting for him the whole way through!
Emilio: Before the Tim Gunn home visits, Emilio was my second favorite. However, his finale collection was incredibly disappointing. I had just said (with a negative connotation, I might add) that "it was so 90s!" And then Raven Simone popped up on the screen with the statement "I liked that, it reminded me of the 90's. I'm totally bringing back the 90's!" with the accompaniment of a smile and an o.k. sign. Apparently other people really liked it, including Anthony, which kind of surprised me. But I will say, I quite loved his namesake print.
Mila: I thought that Mila should have come in 2nd place, rather than Emilio. I thought her finale collection was some of the strongest work she has displayed her whole time on the show. Even though I thought it was a little bit too casual to be "winning work", I was surprised at how much I liked it. My favorite piece was the last look-- the shell-like T-neckline dress.
Who do you think was the most qualified to win??...
