This was one of the best seasons on project runway. My heart was set on Emilio Sosa because his creations during the competition blew me away. Set Aaron's clothes were impressive and I knew that in the end, it was between Seth and Emilio.
When Tim visited Emilio to review his collection before the final show and I saw the colors that Emilio choose, my heart sank and Tim's comments was on target. I had the same feeling when Tim visited Seth and reviewed his collection; the difference was that Seth took Tim Gunn's advice and in the end it paid off.
When Heidi Klum said Seth was the winner, I was so upset to the point of tears and I swore that I will never ever watch project runway again. Of course I watch the reruns of the last show again and again. I understood Nina Garcia's answer to Emilio's question. If his clothes were so perfect, well made and beautiful and the judges love his clothes so much why he was not the winner?
Nina explained it in one simple word, he showed a line instead of a collection and he needed to show more of the beautiful gowns to seduce the judges. He accepted Nina's explanation and I accepted the explanation because in my heart I knew that was the reason for the lost.
I must say the Michael Kors is not my favorite character, he is vulgar and his comments are rude and insulting at times. Something I find totally unnecessary; however, he did make an important point, choosing the right fabric can make or brake a design, if you choose the wrong fabric for your design and you don't understand how its going to behave all is lost. Those were words of wisdom.
I will end this post with a quote from Anthony " You don't have to wear the crown to be the queen or in Emilio's case the king"
