Rue Recap: Project Runway, Finale Part II

Welcome back, Project Runway fans. Last week, we checked in with the designers at home. This week? It’s the Fashion Week finale, baby, and we’re heading straight to the runway.

All in all, I’m pretty darn proud of them. (There comes a point – about a few episodes before the end of the season – where you’re allowed to say things like “proud” about someone you’ve never met before. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.)

All four had standout looks. Christopher’s ethereal oxblood top paired with the distressed, high-slit leather and wool skirt. Fabio’s sweet little shorts, layered with such ease for a shot of insta, I-rolled-out-of-bed cool. Melissa’s statuesque red leather dress (can you believe she made that the day before?).

But, I have to admit, Dmitry truly won me over. I loved it all – from this flouncy little geometric frock to this fitted lime green number (those sleeve details, goodness) to this fringed jacket. His aesthetic is polished and modern – yet still incredibly wearable.  Is he the next Mondo? Who knows. But I seriously can’t wait to see more.

Until All Stars, auf wiedersehen.
