Project Runway Finale: Season 9


I'm a huge fan of Project Runway, and the finale for season 9 was this past Thursday. Instead of the usual three final contestants, four finalists showed their 10 piece collections at New York's Fashion Week. Each of the designers, Kimberly Goldson, Viktor Luna, Anya Ayoung-Chee, and Joshua McKinley, had their own different styles. In my opinion, the designers were pretty evenly matched. They're weren't any collections that I thought were amazing, but each collection had a select few looks that I loved. 

In the end, Anya won the competition with her loud, but beautiful, patterns and island style that was inspired by her roots and home in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. Despite the doubts of the judges and contestants due to Anya's inexperience with sewing and fashion design, she proved that she's a quick learner and isn't afraid of a challenge. Who were your favorite designers from this season, and who do you think should have won?

Here's some photos from each of the designers' collections. To see their full collections, click here.

My favorite look out of all the collections. From: Viktor's collection...I want this whole outfit, but especially that jacket. It's amazing!

P.S. I changed my blog layout. Give me some feedback! Negative or positive...I would love to hear it :)

  6. I must admit, I was a tad bit surprised by who won. While I generally loved Anya's taste and her eye for prints over the course of the season, Victor and Josh were so edgy and their collections felt very "right now." And like you, I would die for that pearl leather jacket.

  13. i was so disappointed Anya won! Her collection was beautiful and MAYBE if she had dyed the fabrics herself I would think she deserved it more. However I felt she did the minimum amount of work. Joshua and Viktor both had STUNNING, ORIGINIAL, CREATIVE, and WELL CRAFTED collections. Lots of time and work and DESIGN went into their collections. It's a design show, not who can purchases the prettiest fabrics show. If Anya hadn't been lucky that some textile designer somewhere made some fabulous prints and sold them at Moods, she wouldn't have made it.

    ahhh ok sorry for the rant. hahaha

  16. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have
    any tips or suggestions? Thanks
