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.)
