Last night was the season six finale of “Project Runway” and it came down to Althea, Carol Hannah and Meena Irina.
I was impressed by the quality of all their clothes actually, but as collections . . . no. Heidi herself made the comment about Carol Hannah’s collection that they were great separate pieces but not a collection. However she was the only one who played with color period. Althea’s could be said to be a collection almost only because they were all similar colors, but again very different pieces. Unfortunately Irina only had a real cohesive collection, though it was all black and they slammed her for that.
In the end Meena Irina ended up winning, which by the way they edited their comments, made it look like she was going to be the first to go. I get that she had a good tailored collection and it was the most cohesive . . . I just felt it looked like some pony fetish S&M wear for the most part. Even Michael Coors commented on the Xena Warrior Woman look to it.
This season was actually delayed from airing, big time, because of all the lawsuits involved in the transition from Bravo to Lifetime. So if you are already missing Runway, the show announced last night that season 7 begins airing on January 14th! I just hope next seasons the designers are better than this season and step it up.
