I must say that I believe Jillian and Rami really stepped it up. I thought both of them showed real progress and maturity in their designs. However, in both collections there were things I liked and things I didn't like. Christian, as always, amazed me with this style, vision, and maturity despite being just 21.
Unfortunately the photos below do not do justice to the amazing garments these talented designers made, but I'll share with you some of my favorites. Click to enlarge the photos.
This is my favorite outfit designed by Jillian. I thought the fabric and design were a great match.
I also liked this look because of the gold piping along the sweater ruffle that tied into the gold pant. This is the first time knits were seen in a Project Runway designer's line at Fashion Week.
I liked this dress because it was a pretty color and a flattering, feminine shape.
This is my favorite of Rami's designs. The bodice of this gown is constructed of woven strips of fabric and the skirt portion of the dress appears to flow out of the weaving. Beautiful!
This is my very favorite of Christian's collection. The colors, textures, feathers, everything!
It was an exciting show to watch. My only complaint was with Bravo's editing. As the models were walking down the runway the camera kept cutting away to people in the audience, like the judges and the designers' families. I found myself yelling to the cameraman in frustration "We don't care what the judges or families look like. We want to see the clothes!"
