Project Runway

Anyone watch the finale tonight? Even though everyone said this season has been the most lackluster I still love watching the show. And the runway show is always my favorite part because you get to see a designer's whole vision and story for a collection instead of the one-off pieces in the challenges.

Kenley went first and her collection didn't seem cohesive to me. I do like her hand painted fabric and use of textures, but overall I liked this the least.

Korto's collection had beautiful colors and everything looked immaculate. The dresses looked easy and graceful.

My favorite was Leanne with all the intricate waves and pleats. Even though the color palette was a bit too simple, I loved the creams and blues. And she won - totally deserving!!!

You beat me to the post! haha I did see the finale last night, and after seeing Leanne's work, I was like, holy crap I have to post her collection. Right as the first dress came out, my mouth seriously dropped open. I LOVED her collection and her color palette! (those blues! hehe). And I loved her petal pleats. So beautiful. The other ones didn't excite me as much as hers did. I'm so glad she won! She totally deserves it. Now, I can't wait for her collection to show up on Bluefly, so maybe....I can save up and at least buy a skirt? haha

i think leanne's collection will be a lot better if she added a dark brown in the mix of colors.

Oh ya...a darker color contrast would be nice.
