So I took a break from Project Runway reviews because I’ve been busy with classes. We’re down to the final four, and I wanted to do a quick summary on the eliminated contestants and final four.
Edmond: Edmond is my favorite to win. Personally, I like his aesthetic the best. It’s clean, fresh and innovative. I loved his red bombshell dress. Out of all the designers, he is the most strategic with the concepts of the challenges.
Kelly: Kelly from the deli has had quite the transformation. I think she’s another force to be reckon with. She finally gets how to edit down her crazy ideas, and her taste level has elevated. Her silver tin dress was perfection,and her brick dress was surprisingly chic and playful. I think she could have a great collection as long as it’s cohesive.
Ashley: Ashley’s storyline has focused a lot about her insecurities. I think she has the potential for a fun, flirty collection, as long as she’s confident. I also think she does romantic styles very well too. Her standout moment for me was the photograph fit and flare dress.
Candice: For some reason, I’m not as invested in Candice’s pieces as the other three designers. Her red dress was stunning, but I agreed with Nina. She could’ve done more. I am excited to see her black edgy style in a collection.
Merline: I love Merline’s personality. She’s so positive, and I think her work is underrated. I agree that her last dress was lackluster compared to the others though.
Swapnil: For some reason, Swapnil got the weirdest “I don’t care,” edit. I think he wanted to win, but he was distracted. Looking back, his earlier pieces were much better than what he ended with.
As far as the other designers, I knew they were goners. Laurie, Joseph, and Lindsey were not surprises. Blake was kind of surprising because he was starting to grow on me during his last few episodes.
Other than that, the final four will all probably go to fashion week because Tim will use his save on whoever is kicked off. I can’t remember the last time there was a final three anyway. I’m pretty happy with what the designers left, so I’m looking forward to the last few episodes.
