    What did you guys think of the finale at Bryant Park?

    I was definitely rooting for LeeAnn
    Her work was def cohesive visually stunning and yet wearable

    Korto's was second
    her ethnic blend was different and very exotic

    and Kenley's collection while it was good with color
    seemed disjointed to me
    some of the pieces worked and some didn't

    I thought Sacha Baron Cohen was the best contestant on the show. His collections showed a true grasp of stylistic sophistication while still remaining young and fresh.

    Kenleys shit looked like some 1980's nightmare. those friggin poofy sleeves! yuk

    LeAnn's was pretty but impractical. Once the wind catches those pleats, the whole thing looks wierd. And can you imagine the dry cleaning bill to iron all those things.

    Kotgo was good.

    Wish Kieth coulda stayed on. He came off as kind of arrogant (not nearly like what kenley did) but he was hot, inked, and every opening had him half naked or more in it.

    Thought it was an excellent finale, quality-wise. Less conflict (the girls not only buried the hatchet but left it buried) but better clothes than some seasons. All three struck me as potential figures for the future in the fashion business - Leanne most of all, as she seemed to have a head for it. Kenley needs to get the bigger picture to succeed, I think. And Korto's collection had something authentic about it.

    Here in NYC we have a public channel that runs "Full Frontal Fashion" during the fashion weeks, showing most of the major runway shows and lots of the up-and-comers as well. Having watched a ton of that I'd say Leanne's collection was the most fashion-forward, as they say, Almost anything in it had a definite quality of newness while still being thoroughly sophisticated.

    Korto's work stands up as well - she could find herself in the league of a number of international designers who cater to a customer looking for something a little exotic. She showed that all through the series, I thought.

    Kenley is in the category of Rag & Bone and other young labels that design for a customer wanting something quirky. But you have to give props to a girl who the judges say is convincingly channeling Balenciaga!


    As to the title thread, GQ, I'm bummed. I currently don't get Lifetime network, so I'll have to figure out how I'm to see PR next go round - though I wonder about moving the show to LA. On the other hand, maybe they'll freshen things up a bit - they could use a maekover about now. I'd like to see them try a season (or maybe a mini-season starting with just 8 or so designers) among designers of menswear. (Having womenswear designers do a man's outfit, as in the past, or someone from menswear doing women's design, just doesn't work.)

    Leann definately had the best collection. It was cohesive, beautiful and elegant. The wedding dress was reason enough for her to win.

    Korto's collection was nice too. she had some great colors. I am glad she took out the wedding dress and made some new pieces.

    Kenley's had a few pieces that were really nice, and a few I did not like at all. Her collection was very disjointed.

    ....as for the man candy, I thought this season was lacking.

    I thought that all three were weak.

    Leanne comes off as a meek little lamb, except when she is tearing into Kenley, like a vicious high school bitch. And all though fucking wings, looked "design school" to me. I can't see any woman wearing any of if, except for maybe the bridesmaid thing.

    Korto's looks was just, not my taste.

    Kenley, had the best individual pieces, and I since i don't follow fashion except for PR, I hadn't seen her looks before. I think she needs to learn more.

    Overall very disappointed.

    Greygull,
    I'm revoking your membership card. What self respecting homo doesn't know that PR is moving to Lifetime next season. icon_cool.gif

    Ya know, I think that Kenley and Keith both suffered from inexperience. I think both are talented, but both of limited exposure to the industry. I sensed that the both were both sweet souls, that reacted to negatively as if they were losing control.
