The designs have been constructed. The collections have been judged. The votes have been tallied. And now, here are the Project Runway: TCNJ results!
(Sorry for the delay! One CeRtAIn judGe took forever to vote.)
Because the contestants were no longer gathered at TCNJ, they utilized the latest advanced technology to hear the results: a 3-way phone call.
Here are what the judges had to say about the collections:
Collection 1: Sophisticated Rebel - Yaris
Some judges thought the collection was well-executed. The line had excellent styling and the hair and accessories were in line with the collection theme. The designs were cute and chic at the same time.
Other judges thought the line was sloppy and not cohesive. There were some slight construction problems, and overall, the collection didn't stand out. One judge thought the collection would have been better titled, 'Rebels through the ages,' since the designs resembled looks from the 50s and 80s.
Collection 2: The Ocean - Christie
Judges called collection #2 fun and flirty, and thought the collection was very cohesive. The dresses were called pretty and gorgeous. The 'ocean' theme was a good choice of theme and was well-executed in the colors and patterns used.
However, judges often called the line plain; one judge swore they saw these designs in stores already, and another said that while they are certainly attractive pieces, they get a bit mediocre after a while. One judge was mindful of everyone's favorite model, Shaquandatifah, saying that her dress added unnecessary volume to the usually thin model.
Collection 3: Gypsy - Enrico
Judges thought the theme was well-represented, from colors to silhouettes. It was obvious that the designer spent a lot of time making the skirt in the third design. The designs also looked like they move well on the runway.
However, nobody liked the second design, which was described as a burlap sack. Others thought the craftsmanship wasn't the best. One judge thought the collection would have been better titled, 'Woodland Pauper.'
After the closest vote in Project Runway: TCNJ history, the first eliminated contestant, with three 1st place votes is...
Ever since she replaced her sister Katrina, Yaris has shown great talent and skill. She won two challenges and always created outfits that were fashion forward and beautiful.
That left Enrico and Christie as the final two contestants. Eight other judges voted and based on these votes....
the results of Project Runway TCNJ were...
Both Enrico and Christie got FOUR votes, creating a tie for the winner!
Now, the original judges have to revote!
But this time, they need only pick between collection #2 and collection #3!
Just send me an e-mail with your pick for the winner!
The votes will be tallied and the results will be up by next month at the latest!
Enrico, the most gracious, wonderful contestant ever to be in the top 2 of Project Runway: TCNJ decided to drop from the running, meaning....
After just making it through each week, Christie surprised everyone with her beautiful collection and is the winner of Project Runway: TCNJ!!
As soon as I run into Christie again, she will be given her grand prize: a brand new car and lots of money!!!
But who needs that when you already have internet fame?
So that brings the first season of my PR show to an end.
Thanks SO MUCH to all the wonderful judges who sent in their votes/critiques each week. Obviously, I couldn't have done this without you.
And of course, thanks to my friends who begrudgingly became my wonderful contestants.
I hope everyone had just as much fun viewing the show as I did making it!
P.S. For season 2, I'd like former judges to be contestants, so if you want to play along, send me an e-mail and I'll send you the details!
