    I doubt that most of the designers who have judged (even Kors, who thinks he's "Mr. Everything") could produce anything worthy of praise.

    Well according to http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ , Fabio's looked the best in person.

    my favorite is snape's, i will wuzrob him a long time when he doesnt win

    no offense to tom and lorenzo but there isnt a piece in there that i covet. i will say his collection stands out due to his color choices and lack of black. but it is my least favorite.

    I can make a case for any of them winning except Christopher. Love Fabio's the best. It was the most unique and looked gorgeous in motion. I just don't know how well it will sale at Lord & Taylor. I need Dmitri's feather duster sparkle dress at the end. I would wear it to Wal-Mart.

    Sorry, but Fabio shouldn't be thrown a bone so he can do better in the future.

    Well it sounds like they can't decide between most commercial versus most conceptual. Every year they change their criteria. Dmitry is commercial, Fabio is conceptual.

    This was my immediate thought. I give Melissa 3rd for that white dress!! And how badly for the model...walking in fashion week without being able to walk! I'm okay with Fabio or Dmitri, but liked Fabio's collection the best.

    LOL, they spent more time on Fabio losing than Dmitry winning. Can't bring out his family; they're in Belarus.

    I'm happy Dimitry won. It took the judges awhile before they fully recognized him over the course of the season, so it's wonderful to see him win in the end. However, I didn't love, love any of the collections. I thought Dimitry's looks were all well-constructed and he did work on making the clothes look youthful. Seeing the looks walking the runway was better than just seeing the spoiler photos. He put on a good runway show. It was nice to see the yellow dress and the white architectural dress break up the darker pieces. It was a cohesive collection too. I agree with the critique that the final gown edged too much toward costumey. Yet overall, everything worked, despite the fact I don't like the heavy brow styling on Dimitry's models (altho' again it didn't look as bad on television). It would have been so interesting to see the show live.

    I thought Fabio's collection was pretty and he made it look so much better than last week with the layering and the other touches. The styling of his models was much better too (maybe they do receive styling help behind-the-scenes). Fabio seemed broken up in the post-show interview about not winning it all. But coming in second, he's in great company with past second-place winners. I could wear some of his pieces, and I could wear most of Melissa's too, except for the white dress (which she didn't have time to rework). I did like Chris' print and many of his outfits, and when I first saw the spoiler runway pics, I thought Chris could win (that it would be between Chris and Dimitry) but I have to agree with the judges that Chris had a lot of trouble figuring out his direction and how to make his collection work thematically.

    Since the designs look different in motion, I really wish it was possible to see some of the runway shows of the other 4 contestants, especially Ven's and Elena's.

    Congrats to Dimitry!

    Too bad that none of his family could be there in person.

    ^^ Yes, I was hoping there would be a surprise where the show helped bring a relative of Dimitry's over to see him on the stage at Fashion Week. I believe they did do that for a former finalist (altho' the relative lived in the United States, not Belarus). It would have just been nice even if Dimitry didn't win (i.e., the producers could still have done it just to surprise him, obviously not knowing he was going to win in the end).

    Bless him for that!

    I'm so happy for Dmitry
    His collection was wonderful.
    I want to buy something also.

    I hope he's been able to see his family.
    They must be so proud,

    I thought the right person won. Dimitri's collection was the best. I didn't think I would like Fabio's, but on the runway, it moved beautifully. I also really liked Melissa's. I agree with the judges about Chris. He is very talented and makes beautiful pieces. But, he doesn't know who he is yet. He got in his own way by not focusing on what he does best and over creating. Saw that Elena won the fan favorite prize of $10,000.
