Tonight is Project Runway’s season finale. Will Mondo Guerra, Gretchen Jones, or Andy South take home the coveted prize? In September, the three finalists strutted their stuff at Mercedes Fashion Week in New York. Jessica Simpson was the celebrity judge. In Astrochicks opinion, Mondo blew away the competition with his color and plaid inspired collection.
What Project Runway fans may be surprised to learn, the three remaing finalists weren’t the only designers at Fashion Week. Michael Costello, Casanova, Ivy, Christopher, Michael D, Valerie and April were there front and center showing their collections. I guess Lifetime decided to mix it up a bit and keep fans and critics guessing who would win. The critics personal favorites were Michael Costello, Mondo, April and suprisingly MEAN GIRL Ivy. You can view the collections here.
Mondo, born under the astrology sign of Gemini, is the fan favorite tonight. Not only is Mondo smart he has a fun pop art fashion style. Astrologically, the stars aligned for him to be crowned the Project Runway winner. On a career note, I think his design collection will be well received and he will serve as an inspiration to many with his health challenges. I think he has an opportunity to become one of the more successful designers from this show. He might even find love.
We are sad that Michael Costello didn’t make it to the final three but we’re glad his collection was a hit a Mercedes Fashion Week. For more fabulous insight on Project Runway’s season finale, check out Culture Map as they reveal fashion’s dirty little secret. Enjoy.
