    I personally don't like Seth Aaron's personal style, because he's just a tad too old to be dress like a goth 'tween, but his clothing was wonderful and I am glad he won. He was also the nicest- most genuine person there. icon_biggrin.gif
    No, "I can lose to that little faggot" comments.....

    Congrats Aaron!

    From the little that I watched this season Seth Aron always stood out as the most creative and I thought his last collection at Bryant Park was fantastic

    I've watched a few episodes...

    What ever happened to Anthony, he stood out to me the earliest due to his color and daring approach.

    I agree with you completely. During the entire show I kept asking myself, "WHAT is up with his hair?!" I was surprised at how conservative his wife and kids looked.

    Seth Aaron's clothes were great! But his personal look needed a makeover. He had those big huge cave man hands of his painted with black nail polish WTF??? He looked like a character from "The Alice In Wonderland" movie. I also think he wore those extreme hairstyles because he's starting to thin on the top. I agree, he's way too old for the style he's trying to rock.

    I didn't think anything about Seth's personal style. Age is not a factor in showing it. Look at Keith Richards.

    Was chagrined to hear the "faggot" term from Mila, whom I was actually rooting for. Did you catch her boyfriend on the last two episodes? If she doesn't like gay men why is she dating one?

    Very solid showings at NYFW for all three, but none really appealed to me.

    Before this season, if you suggested that some article of clothing could be sold at a department store off the rack, Nina would immediately despise it. She did a complete turn around in her thinking this season.

    we canadians must be a coupla wks behind....haven't seen the finale yet, but nice to know Seth Aron won. I always found his designs to be the most inventive.
    Disappointing about Mila's comment, but I never liked her or her clothes...always a bitchy scowl on her face.
    Anyone else like to flip between Runway and UFC? LOL

    I am really happy that Seth Aaron won. He was the probably the most creative designer and a really nice person. Emilio though was good, had some attitude problems, esp "how he always thought he has it all and is better than everybody else". That just made me not wanting to go close to him, not even to buy his clothes.

    I mean haven't we all heard of designers who Ego's were LaRgEr than Life? Yes, personality wise he's a doucher but he's like Mila in a sense a bit cold but he has awesome creativity!

    I'm just glad that cocky asshole Emilio didn't win. Other than that I would have been ok with either of the other two winning.

    Well, it was kinda funny how Tim Gunn was always snarky with Emilio.

    I was a big fan of both Mila and Maya's aesthetics throughout the season, which probably has to do with Mila's love of geometric patterns and Maya's air of refinement (with the exception of her potato-sack creation) and editorial eye.

    That said, I think Mila should've won given the final 3. She mixed patterns in intriguing ways that did, indeed, resemble patterns created by shadows, which were her inspirations. I think her aesthetic, while largely referential to another time period, is, well, more timeless than Seth Aaron's. She also always serves up a compelling mix separates and textures/textiles. I would be more than intrigued to see another collection/line by her, and I think she should try menswear.

    With regards to SA, he made a pretty great final collection, however, the majority of what he churns out has the refinement and sophistication of what some schlock, pseudo-poppunk band like AFI would wear. I think Mila's comment about his aesthetic being glam Hot Topic is kind of spot-on. He's technically a great craftsman, and he has some solid ideas, but his appeal is one of cheap thrills and instant gratification. He'll churn out overly saturated color palettes adorned with rivets and spikes and various metals and zippers and pleating and etc. until the end of time. And there will always be a market for such things, although I struggle to get the wordy "gimmicky" out of my vocabulary when thinking of him. Maybe he has a future being a wardrobe consultant for the next pre-packaged pop-punk sensation?

    In fairness, there were no less than 4 or 5 stellar looks in his final collection, two of which were fantastic coats.

    Emilio's appeal eludes me altogether. Possibly I'm not "sophisticated" enough to "get it," but some of his looks were straight out of a mall in 1991. Perfectly salable in Merry Go Round to be sure. There were popped collars and atrocious colors and...I think one nice coat in an awful color. He's a good tailor with tacky and boring (and egotistical) leanings and was allowed to stay in the competition for so long because the judges need to be replaced...with Tim Gunn. Tim's great, and is almost always correct. His blog is wonderful.

    Michael Kors, on the other hand, is a fool, and was especially awful to Jonathan with regards to his "disco straightjacket" pullover episodes ago. He's juvenilely derisive, and yet he sits there in penny loafers and blue jeans and the same black blazer every week. Way to look like a great extra from the Miami Vice era. If that blazer were white or a light pink, it would be perfect.

    Another honorable mention from the season is Amy. The girl just has straight-up interesting ideas. Sure interesting can fail, and she did send down some awful looks like the hair-sling, but I always wanted to see more. Her final collection is strong (yes I've studied the final collections of the 8 decoys who showed at Fashion Week) and so is her portfolio.

    I really wanted the final 3 to be Mila, Maya and Amy, basically.

    Oh right... Amy. When this season first began I thought she would have made it to the final three.
    Emilio is full of himself... That washer bikini? Claiming that he just wanted to be 'different....' idiot just didn't plan ahead. He should of gone that week.

    Lol- I thought Mila's boyfriend came off a bit too camp too. Seth Aaron's son gives off a similar vibe. icon_eek.gif

    I wanted to see more of Jay.
