Project Runway Upset

 

One of Gretchen's Runway Looks
     This past Thursday was the finale of one of my favorite shows, Project Runway. As I watched the last five minutes in anticipation, waiting for the winner to be announced, I was extremely disappointed, to hear the name Gretchen Jones come out of Heidi Klum's mouth. Between the final three contestants that competed at fashion week, Mondo Guerra was clearly the winner in my eyes. The tiny risk-taking designer with a crazy and fun collection stole my heart from episode one.

     Both Gretchen and Mondo's final collections couldn't be more opposite. Gretchen's used no bright colors in contrast to Mondo's crazy prints and daring colors. Her color palette consisted of muted tones, such as grey, brown and taupe. Using simple patterns and boring colors left me yawning.

     Mondo's runway on the other hand was exciting, playful and attention evoking, all at the same time. He used colors that you don't see every day and wasn't afraid of really pushing his limits by mixing patterns with patterns. Staying true to his roots, his collection was inspired by the famous Mexican holiday Day of the Dead. He incorporated skulls with a circus twist.

One of Mondo's Looks
     When the runway show was over, and it was time for the judges, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and guest judge Jessica Simpson to deliberate, they were split straight down the middle. Kors and Garcia both supported Gretchen's bohemian, effortless look while Klum and Simpson stated that they would wear Mondo's last look straight off the runway.

     Five minutes of arguing went on, battering back and forth about who the better designer is. Garcia claims that Mondo's looks can't be worn by women her age; his pieces are aimed towards the younger age and could even be seen as teenage clothes. In comparison, Gretchen seemed to have an itch for up-and-coming fashion and her collection is ready-to-wear and could be worn by all ages.

     The judges ended up choosing Gretchen, but what a mistake that was. Mondo Guerra is a great new designer. Even though he didn't win Project Runway, I see him going much farther than Gretchen ever will. I loved his whole collection and I personally would buy almost all of his pieces, if not all of them. His vision is innovative and unique, he's not afraid to do something that no one else has ever seen and I respect him for his bravery. I could easily see him collaborating with Betsey Johnson for one amazing collection full of color and fun. But despite his lack of height, Mondo is nothing short of a true designer-to-be.

Who do you think should have won?

Gretchen...

  6. I totally agree! I was running around swearing and yelling "no" when she won. I just thought that her aesthetic was so much less original, less daring, and much less interesting.
