Christopher described his collection as "Constructed and Deconstructed" and featured a print of his mother's neck x-ray. After presenting 3 leather/print outfits with short bottoms, Christopher used his final days tweaking his whole collection. On the runway, Christopher appeared to have too many ideas and could have easily separated his looks into 2 or 3 separate collections. In the end, Christopher was out.
|Christopher's collection had lots of boobage|
|print and leather|
|A random pop of blue|
|Who likes short-shorts|
|End with an ombre gown.|
|Melissa cut off the cuffs and re-styled the jacket with much improvement.|
|This dress caused Melissa's model to have to shimmy and was unforgivable. Why didn't she put a slit in it?|
|A great ending to an otherwise ho-hum collection.|
Fabio described his collection as "Cosmic Tribalism." Fabio's use of pastel color in his collection and his light bo-hoiness was a stark contrast to the other collections. I also thought that Fabio's collection appeared to be the most avaunt-guard and really showed off Fabio's aesthetic as well as how much Fabio has grown as a designer. I knew the judges would have a tough time deciding between Fabio and Dmitry. Ultimately I worried that this collection was so much like Fabio's own fashion sense and so fashion forward that I worried that Fabio may not be able to produce collections that would continue to be ahead of the game. The judges also worried about Fabio's fashion longevity and Fabio was out.
|Bo-ho done expensively|
|Everyone loved the vest|
|This is such a Fabio outfit!|
|Fabio goes chic|
Dmitry's collection was inspired by architecture and the New York City skyline. Dmitry listened to the judges and changed his model's styling to help them appear younger (although I didn't exactly LOVE the crazy eyebrows and tin foil pony tails). Dmitry's collection definitely had some wow moments and everything was expertly made and looked expensive. Many of his clothes showed hints of Dmitry's past life as a ballroom dancer. In the end, Dmitry was declared the season winner.
|The great cut-out jacket!|
|How very Linda Evans|
|I could see a celebrity wearing this outfit|
