okay, i'm typing this as they're announcing the winner and i am quite disappointed. i really do think that it's just between gretchen and mondo, but mondo definitely put on a fantastical, whimsical yet dramatic fashion show and collection. gretchen's was wearable, yes, and actually i think she and i share a similar aesthetic but it looked very safe (don't even let me start on andy's).
anyway, this is what i thought of the final three collections. i was really rooting for mondo and i believe he deserves the title more than gretchen. photos from: tom and lorenzo
