The Fashion Show Recap: Robots, Cowboys, And Pleats Take Over Cipriani

July 17, 2009 by SheFindsJenn

The final four designers put it all out on the runway at Cipriani Wall Street for part one of the finale of Bravo’s The Fashion Show. The twist was that only three of the four would make it to the final viewer’s choice vote, which by the time you read this, will be closed.

Next week, the winner is crowned during a reunion show.

Daniella’s “soft robot” collection was a combination of leather, epaulets, and femininity that judges described as fashionable. The medieval androgyny she was aiming for would have worked if the construction was better – her only real criticism from the panel.

James Paul’s collection was equally abstract, with his inspiration coming from western wear. None on the pieces were really reminiscent of cowboy couture, but in usual JP fashion, his muted color palette and textures won raves from Isaac and co.

The circle skirt jacket from Reco was just one of the bright, glam pieces in his Aztec goddess-inspired collection. He did everything from separates to a wedding gown, but the absence of detailed designs pushed him out of the final four.

Anna, however, was the crowd favorite. While knocked as being the least cohesive, her collection was bright and wearable, incorporating her successful pleating as well as a floral palette that won raves in previous episodes.

Although Kelly Rowland rarely delivers any sage fashion advice, she did point out that knee-length dresses are a staple of any burgeoning wardrobe. J. Crew’s strapless floral Lorelei dress ($250) is an ode to Anna’s bright, floral prints. And for a more office-appropriate look, this Donna Morgan Jersey Dress ($79 from $118) can be jazzed up with a statement belt.
