    After looking at the collections, I'm convinced Oliver and Byrce hate women. Actually I'm underwhelmed by them all. Anya's is nice, but looks like Uli Junior' collection.

    Fauxliver may hate boobs, but he sure does love eyebrows.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    My favorite collection was actually Kimberly's. I love her use of the colors and several pieces are edgy and wearable. I always love it when a designer has the cajones to use color and prints in their collection.

    Bert's collection was sophisicated but the color palette was "meh". But its a safe bet for his market/demographic he's going after. For me, if wanted sophisication, classic designs with a modern edge, I'm shopping the collection of Ms W'ren Scott. She takes classic pieces and uses color/prints to make them fresh.

    Another note, did anyone check out the other Spring RTW collections?

    Paris, Alexander McQueen's collection by Sarah Burton was PHENOMENTAL. Burton did a fabulous job.

    I may be in the minority, but I really liked Laura and was sad to see her go. Her final collection was gorgeous, by far my favorite.

    I like Anya's collection, but it's almost entirely made up of flowy, bold print dresses. Bert's was hit and miss. The rest were mediocre to bad, except for Anthony Ryan's which was

    Ugh, and that outfit, he looked like Debbie Gibson c. 1985 with that hat and rolled-up pants.

    [I also happen to be one of the few Manhattan gays who completely reject the rolled-up leg with sockless wingtips look. Cuffed and wingtipped, yes, but not to look like I'm walking through a flood. Dang you, Thom Browne!!!]

    I think he wanted the models to look like him.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    So that's why his clothes reject femininity.

    I expected Anya to be a train wreck when this season began but it turned out she has some impressive chops.

    I'm just not nearly as impressed with Anya's final collection as everyone else is. To call her Uli light is an insult to Uli who didn't just use bold prints but combined them in ways that was genius. And it's not all she did. She also made some really beautiful, well constructed pieces as well. Anya's collection isn't very interesting and isn't particularly original. It's just kinda "eh". Unfortunately, of the 4 designers remaining, it is definitely top 2. I think I prefer Victor's, but pretty sure the judges will declare her's groundbreaking and give her the win.

    I'm resisting the urge to peek and spoil myself w/ the final 4's collections. But I'm so curious as to what kind of garments Anya was able to make w/ her limited sewing skills.

    A lot of flowyage and drapeage, to make up a couple of words.

    Bumping - anyone else watching this? Finale Part 1.

    Josh is OTT, Anya's not even sewing, Kim was a little fashionista, and Viktor's still dressed odd.

    Tim tweeted this earlier this week ...

    Hi everyone! The home visits are this week. Don't allow them to trigger any assumptions about who the winner may be. This is a season of surprises!
    Hmmm. Is saying that the obvious (/ teacher's pet / heavily edited as such) winner, Anya, does not win?

    Or that they haven't actually announced the winner yet?

    Or, my preference, that they allowed Burt or Anthony Ryan to compete, and he won?

    I like Anya's long gold dress.

    Dear Lord, what was up with the back of Josh's dress/pant monstrosity?

    ^ If he just made it a dress, it would have been better.

    However, I must admit, I liked Josh's collection the best.

    Josh's neoprene thing makes that model look fat, though.
