It’s got to be nerve-wracking to create an entire fashion collection in a little over a month with the possibility that all your hard work won’t pay off and you won’t get to show at Fashion Week. It was natural for “Project Runway” Season 10 final four designers Christopher, Fabio, Dmitry and Melissa to be nervous, but which one got the ax?
Well, to put it bluntly, no one. After four home visits by Tim Gunn, four frenzied designers freaking out before their final runway challenge and four very mixed critiques, judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors decided that all four competitors left would get to show at Lincoln Center during the “Project Runway” Fashion Week show.
Isn’t that kind of a cop out? Sure, all four of them had done pretty great work, but so did Sonjia and she got cut right before the finals. They easily could’ve axed one of the designers before the tents — it would’ve been hard, but they could have done it. Still, it’s nice that these designers are moving forward, especially since they all seem to really respect each other (though they’re still not shy about talking crap about each other’s collections in confessionals).
The judges universally hated the way each designer styled their collections, but here’s what they liked:
Fabio: Michael loved all the pastel colors and thought the accessories were beautiful
Dmitry: Nina loved the white dress, and thought the collection looked polished and expensive.
Christopher: Michael loved the print, even though the fact that it was made from Chris’ mom’s x-ray is kind of creepy
Melissa: Heidi loved the structured jacket, and could tell immediately which designer the collection came from
Do you think all four designers should’ve moved forward? Who would you have sent home?
“Project Runway” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
