Did you watch the Project Runway season finale on Lifetime tonight?  I watched some of the show from the press lounge at New York Fashion Week back in Feb.  The winner was never announced.  However, I was wowed by Emilio Sosa’s collection.  As he himself said, it was wearable and tasteful  There were great evening gowns like the one above, plus wonderful coats, and lots of color.  This is stuff I would love to see hit the racks.  And I am not the only one who thinks so.  Heidi Klum wore one of Emilio’s dresses on the Red Carpet last night in LA. The BuzzBox blog reports that Heidi  wore Emilio’s strapless gown.

If you watched the Project Runway finale tonight then you know that Seth Aaron Henderson was the winner. Congrats to Seth Aaron.  His collection was well done, and beautifully tailored.  His inspiration was German and Russian military.  While his collection was striking, I have to agree with Nina.  As she said, “it can  be borderline costumy.”  Here’s an example.  Check out the leather with the yellow plaid pants!

However, there were Seth Aaron looks I loved.  Like this pantsuit below. I just think it might be hard for most women to wear that fabric pattern head to toe.  To see more of Seth Aaron’s collection and designs, check Anne Bocci’s Boutique. She is already selling some of his work and I like what she has on sale better than what I saw on Project Runway.

Overall, I thought Seth Aaron’s collection was uneven and I felt Emilio’s pain.  How many women  will have the occasion to wear some of the looks from Seth Aaron. In contrast, I found Emilio was much more accessible.  What’s wrong with have something rack ready on the runway? What did you think readers? Are you jonesing for some Russian/German military looks?

As for poor Mila, I have no words.  I did like her work in the earlier challenges, but I was underwhelmed by her final collection.

    I think Eilio should have won hands down. Alot of folks online thought so also. I'm so disappointed with Project Runway this year period. Alot of the talent they picked were awful. How and why did Mila even get to any point on the show Period. I want to see things that the average woman is wearing today. Don't get me wrong I love Seth Aaron line. But Emilio proved he can do it all. I don't care about a line of clothing. I thought this show was about talent, execution and down right who can sell clothes after the show. I'm never ever watching the show again. I felt so bad for Emilio. I just knew he won and I'm still hurting for him. You want to win when it counts and everyone is watching.

    VERY nice write up and summary of how so many of us feel. From the first challenge I felt Emilio was amazing – I hope he goes far despite not being crowned the winner.
