Dmitry Wins Project Ruway Season 10…

Dmitry Sholokhov walked away as the grand prize winner of Project Runway Season 10 last night and between you and I-he deserved every bit of it. Dmitry is a lesson in keeping your head down and your eye on the prize. Week after week he just kept designing garments that were so beautifully made and perfectly tailored. His final collection was gorgeous and he definitely had his own point of view. The remaining 3 PR contestants in the finale faired  well with Fabio placing a close second bringing a fresh and unique perspective to Spring apparel.

Project Runway’s Mondo Mistake!

It has taken me 5 days to get over the shock of Gretchen winning Project Runway.  I am still scratching my head trying to figure out  how the peasant looking, monochromatic, blah and boring collection won over  that of Andy and more importantly Mondo!   

I have gone through numerous scenarios trying to make sense of this Mondo Mistake: Is Gretchen shacking up with Michael Kors??… (No, he’s Gay). Is she courting Nina Garcia??? (No, she’s straight). Is it the downsized economy affecting the judge’s opinion that people have no money and want to look that way??? 

Clearly, Mondo’s collection was innovative, fresh, inspiring-all qualities that seem to indicate a designer genius on the rise. But low and behold Nina claims Gretchen’s collection is indicative of what is going on now. Well Nina “what is really going on” is-YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MIND! And…Michael Kors-shame shame-I know you stand by the American Classics of design, but could you stop for a moment and embrace a unique and astoundingly colorful point of view. Mondo mixed patterns and texture and color better than Picasso.  Mondo should have won and if not him then Andy. Quite frankly Michael Costello should have been in the top 3 to start. As Heidi says: “One day you’re in and the next day you’re out.” In this case” the verdict is “out” until the public starts purchasing  a designers fashions. 

My money is on Mondo!
