Project Runway Season 10 Crowns A Winner
Season 10 of Project Runway was a doozy. Early frontrunners like Vin and Sonjia never seemed to pan out to their full potential, and shyer designers like Melissa and Fabio only seemed to blossom as the season moved forward. The four designers who showed their collections at Fashion Week for the chance to win all put in a good performance, but ultimately, only one winner came out on top.
Despite Melissa having one showstopper of a blood-orange dress, it seemed clear from the beginning her collection didn’t have as many stand-out moments as some of the other designers. Probably the worst disappointment of the night was Christopher, the designer who showed piece after piece of perfection during the run of the season, but when push came to shove, became kind of a mess. Honestly, it was disheartening to watch the man nearly have a nervous breakdown onscreen when he had been so strong all season, and his collection, while interesting, just wasn’t as cohesive as it could have been had he been able to collect himself.
This left Fabio and Dmitry with opposite but equally strong collections. It seemed to be a bit of a toss up between the two for a while as the judges debated whether Fabio’s pastels or Dmitry’s sharper looks would take the $100,000 prize. Ultimately, it seemed like Nina’s notes about the “editorial” nature of Dmitry’s clothes was enough to earn him the win.
So, congrats to Dmitry Sholokhov, the Season 10 winner of Project Runway, although I hope Fabio will stick it out and do an All-Stars season sometime.
