Project Runway - Season 7 Finale

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"

I missed the entire season but watched the finale this past week. The friend I watched it with said Micheal Kors has been particularly grumpy this season. I think Emilio has talent and hopefully he'll find an opportunity to use and develop it further.

I really liked Emilio throughout the season as well, but like heart sank when I saw his fabrics. They were the same colors that Rami had been criticized for using in his collection. Emilio is so talented, I hope that his time on PR has opened doors for him.

Hopefully, the exposure on project runway will help Emilio. Michelle you are right I forgot about Rami, the colors he chose was dark and similar in tone; however Rami is truly a designer and his clothes like Emilio's was perfectly constructed and beautiful!

I loved this season, too. Actually, I found Emilio to be a bit too arrogant for my liking, even though he was who I originally was rooting for. In the end, I am happy Seth Aaron won, especially since he was able to grow as a designer, taking feedback and learning from the criticism, while still staying true to his aesthetic.

Susan you are right on target. Accepting constructive critism propelled Seth Aaron to the top. Emilio did not take constructive critism well. I must say Tim Gunn knows his stuff. If the designers listen to him they can make to finals. Oh well.....
