Previously on Project Runway: Season 12, Episode 14

A.K.A The Finale

Previously on Project Runway the final five had been narrowed down into the final four and each one was working hard to make sure that their 10 look collections were polished- including their Tide Pods Washable Fabrics Challenge looks and unconventional looks. The guest judge was Kerry Washington of the TV show, Scandal. Let's take a look at the collections.

Bradon's collection was inspired by the first signs of spring after a long winter. His collection used a lot of floral patterns, an iridescent lame and punches of blue. For a guy who won several challenges this season, his collection lacked a bit of edge and sex appeal and was a bit boring for my tastes.

Justin's autobiographical collection was about his experiences growing up deaf and first learning to hear with his cochlear implant at age 18. His story was clearly seen through his sound-wave stitching on his garments and the noise of the test tubes on his unconventional look which reminded Justin of his favorite sound- rain. His use of 3D printing for the accessories gave his clothes a futuristic feel. While there were many pieces the judges loved, there were some minor construction issues that we saw in the workroom and while his hair styling improved from the previous episode, I still wasn't a fan.

Alexandria's collection was called "neo-nomadic punk". All of Alexandria's pieces looked like they could be found in Heidi Klum's closet with their luxe fabrics and relaxed 'cool girl' style. The judges seemed to feel like her clothes were very modern and of the moment. I thought her unconventional look was the most 'arts and crafts' of the bunch, but her washable look fit in well with the collection. I just wished that there was a punch of color in the collection.

Dom's 'retro futurism' collection was inspired by the movie, Blade Runner. I loved that she made her own prints and her washable look was one of my favorites. The judges seemed to like her collection too, however Zac Posen wasn't feeling the swimsuit so much.

After the judges gave the collection their final once over they sent Bradon out first, followed by Justin. With two girls left on the runway, the judges named Dom the winner! Yay! I was so happy! I felt like Dom presented the best collection and had the best designs throughout the season with a clear direction. I also felt like she needed the win the most in order to financially support her career in fashion.

What did you think of the collections? Did your favorite designer win? Are you excited for the next instalment of Project Runway All Stars? Let me know in the comments below.
