Runway Recap: Petals Marshall Takes The Prize, Kenley Keeps On Crying

October 16, 2008 by Bryn

Here's the latest from SheFinds reader Casey:

We're going to cut to the chase here… straight to the collections! I am almost bummed that I have nothing to be truly snarky about today as all three collections were pretty exceptional and cohesive and all those things they were supposed to be.

Kenley's collection was brightly colored, well constructed, and flattering on her models. We didn't want to like Kenley's collection because we think Kenley is a brat — but alas, we found ourselves really appreciating her point of view and handiwork. There was mention several times of her work appearing similar to current designers (and haven't we seen that floral column dress before?) — which she snottily rebuffed with tears in her eyes. But all in all, we agreed with Tim Gunn's assessment that she had a profound point of view and we begrudgingly liked it a lot.

Korto's Africa-meets-Arkansas collection went through some tweaks before hitting the runway — namely two entirely new pieces. She had a lot of shiny in her collection, and generally shiny is not your friend, but the shapes she created fit well and were flattering. Her final piece was a bright green long halter gown with an unusual neckline and back — while very simple, it was quite spectacular.  Michael Kors thought so too (and we love it when people with real cred agree with us!).

Leanne's collection was incredibly consistent, cool, and modern. Perhaps a bit too cohesive though? She was true to her inspiration, which was the sea — there was a lot of sea blues and wave-y things. We loved her collection and were afraid the matchy-matchy-ness might hurt her chances of winning, but Michael Kors actually appeared to be in awe of the collection, though he did say he was worried she might be perceived as "Petals Marshall."

Drumroll please…………………  Kenley, you're OUT. Waterworks, wah wah wah. Then it's down to Korto and Leanne — and in an extremely anti-climactic final announcement, Petals Marshall is the winner! Leanne from Portland will go down in history as Bravos' final Project Runway winner! 
 
We're interested to see whether next season's challenges on the Lifetime (Television for Women) version will be "design an outfit for a woman escaping an abusive marriage" or "design an outfit for a pregnant teen at odds with her religious community."  Until next season, folks….. happy designing!
