Tim Gunn has watched the four final designers to track their progress on their lines by visiting their home on Project Runway. Then judges selected Seth Aaron to round out Bryant Park and Mila at Emilio after viewing three pieces from both Mila's and Jay's collections. All three designers saw their ten piece collections walk down the runway at Bryant Park in New York Fashion Week, after tirelessly working at home for four months, in the highly anticipated Season 7 finale on Thursday, 22 April 2010. The winner was selected by four Project Runway judges, Nina, Michael, Heidi and special guest Faith Hill. Seth Aaron was declared as the winner of the Project Runway Season 7.
Mila, Seth Aaron and Emilio reentered the Project Runway workroom to meet with Tim Gunn and the make-up and hair stylists on the day before the show. However, not before they assessed the others' final work. Seth Aaron's clothes were called a "Glamorous Hot Topic" by Mila, and said Emilio's remind her of being "in a boutique in Brooklyn in 1994". However, the people did not have the nicest things to say about her collection, which may have been well made, but was too "demure" for their tastes. Tim was shocked when Seth Aaron revealed that he brought 24 looks and needed to edit to ten. Seth Aaron changed his line to make it "more clean and sophisticated," after Tim’s visit to him in Vancouver. Emilio felt confident and saying, "This is for all those people who knew I could do it before I even knew I could do it," when he was going into the runway show.
The designers went to the Bryant Park tent to prep for their ten minutes of glory, after nights of barely any sleep. Seth Aaron said, "Now it's sinking in. The greatest names show here, and now I'm part of that". Then, on the snow-white runway, he made a fake snow angel, reverently. Three of Mila's models have not shown up, and one of Emilio's is also missing, two hours before the show. Mila was still two models down, and Tim Gunn came to the rescue, "pulling alternates" to keep the show going, 30 minutes intil the show. Seth Aaron said "I'm amped" as he looked at his fully prepped pieces. In addition, "I love it. It's beautiful. I achieved what I came to do. And no one can take that away from me."
Seth Aaron's Collection:
Seth Aaron’s pieces were inspired by 1940's German military said by Seth Aaron to the audience and started the event. They take Seth Aaron's punk aesthetic to a more high fashion, high-glamour level with their strong lines, leather, bright stripes and bold colors. “Like, if Inglourious Basterds were set in the future, and starred only smokin' hot women.” Audience were excited to see the 14 pieces, which he cut from the show, but each piece that came down the runway was like a breath of bright, bold, fresh air, a different take in a still entirely cohesive collection, so it seemed that he edited well.
Mila said the crowd that shadows are the inspiration of her collection, and thanked her boyfriend, her "rock." On the runway, she was represented in her collection, which was rather dark collection but bright white stripes, aubergine tights and dresses, and a diverse, luxurious array of textures lift them up. As compared to Seth Aaron's more extreme designs, it does not feel too conceptual, and many of the pieces look like they could walk right off the runway and onto the street.
"Color Me Bad," is the name of Emilio collection, which was inspired by his mother and her sisters. Mostly dresses and coats in various combos of cherry red, bright cerulean and mustard are the pieces of Emilio. For an older woman, certain pieces feel designed but they seem young with modern twists such as bright red leather gloves and a reoccurring original print, which looks like multicolored leopard from afar. His final piece an evening gown that takes his mustard theme and turns it into shimmering gold was the showstopper.
The Judges' Decision:
To explain, defend and discuss their lines, the designers and their head models came before the judges.
Seth Aaron: The judges talked wildly about his dressmaking and craftsmanship. The collection was called as "exhilarating and powerful" by Michael but still filled with clothes people could wear. Nina said, “The clothes looked more sophisticated that they did during the season, though he still has a heavy hand in some outfits. It felt "editorial" to her”.
Emilio: To create sportswear that women could feel beautiful in was his goal. His "E. Sosa" print is liked by Heidi, and his collection called as the "most commercial," by Michael though his favorite piece was the least commercial: the final gown. The jump from the sportswear to the gown though, felt severe. The collection was called as "quiet but sophisticated," by Nina but wanted more drama and feminine elegance like the bold final gown.
Mila: Mila's final product called as "a little nasty, but in a good way," by Michael. Like the white tee, how many pieces she would have loved to own are appreciated by Heidi. Faith loved her graphic dresses, gloves and leggings. Nina thought the show was successful, and the changes Mila made in loosening up her models, the pieces became "cooler."
Mila was out of the competition that announcement was made by judges after extensive deliberation. In the end, Emilio and Seth Aaron were remained in the weekly challenges. Judges finally announced Seth Aaron as the winner of Project Runway Season 7.
