One, Althea Harper, was accused by season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva of copying her looks. The other, Carol Hannah Whitfield, had to battle a wicked flu to complete her collection and compete in the Fashion Week finale. Both designers, the second and third-place finishers, respectively, in last night's 'Project Runway' season finale, talked to AOL TV about their experiences on the show, the dramas of the copycat accusations and the flu and what they've been up to post-'Project.'

Review: Project Runway - Finale Part 2 (Season Finale)

Project Runway's final three (L to R): Carol Hannah, Irina, and Althea(S06E14) It's finally the end of Project Runway season six, and Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina get to show off their looks. The three were evenly matched with a solid concept, good models, and similar makeup consultations. I've been disappointed with the way this season turned out after its long hiatus, and I'm hoping that next season's return to New York will be better.

In the end, I got the reunion show I was wondering about, in the form of Models of the Runway. It was the weirdest use of Project Runway's footage because the models didn't have any involvement in many of the videos.

Review: Project Runway - Finale, Part I

Althea worries about her collection.
(S06E13) Project Runway's part one of their finale episodes are always boring. This episode was no exception. We learn more about the hopefuls' backgrounds, peek at their final collection, Tim critiques them, they come to New York, and get some bombshell in one form or another.

This year's bomb is recycled from season two: a last minute thirteenth piece with the help of an eliminated contestant. This time, the muse model picks their final model.

The first half of the show was all about watching Tim in awkward situations: struggling to use a freight elevator, baking biscuits, and interacting with dogs.

Review: Project Runway - The Art of Design

Christopher studies a piece of art.
(S06E12) It's the trend for most contestants on Project Runway to cave during the final challenge; this season was no exception. This season's final challenge was to be inspired by the Getty museum. The contestants had two days and $300 to design the dress.


Althea - Overall Architecture
Christopher - Rock Fountain
Irina - Mischief and Repose by Godward.
Gordana - Rouen Cathedral by Monet
Carol Hannah - Bed - French, Paris (circa 1775 - 1780)

There was so much to be inspired by in the Getty Center, and I feel like the show rushed its way through.

Project Runway: Lights, Camera, Sew!

Nicolas considers picking fur for his design(S06E06) For the first season of Project Runway in Los Angeles, production has been trying their best to use their surroundings for themes. This week Project Runway finally gave the opportunity to make a Hollywood based costume challenge. Unfortunately, the designers didn't realize that the challenge was just a façade for L'oreal Paris to play with the model's hair.

The designers were given a genre, $150, and a day to design a visual masterpiece representing their genres. Somewhere in that day, they lost time to consult with Collier Strong to make sure that L'oreal (and not Garnier even though they are in the same family) was represented.

Project Runway: Rumble on the Runway

Logan and Christopher work on their outfit on Project Runway
(S06E03) Early episodes of Project Runway throw me off. There are too many contestants, and a lot of them get lost in the shuffle. A lot of the designers have five seconds here and there, but the editing team chooses which ones we get to know.

This week was a team challenge where everyone was paired up in a school-yard pick. Who is Irina anyway? The designers had the chance to talk to locals, but the information they gave was useless. If someone didn't know beach wear was influenced by tropical colors, comfort, and functionality, they deserve to lose the challenge.

Meet the new Project Runway designers

project_runwayI've been so busy feeling mildly annoyed and super-confused about Bravo's The Fashion Show, the "real" Project Runway has almost completely slipped my mind. Coverage has been shaky, and every time I try to find out something new, Isaac Mizrahi's hair obstructs my view and I give up.

What I know is that the next season of the show will air on Lifetime and, thank whatever supernatural entity is responsible for reason and rhyme in fashion, Tim Gunn will be there. Oh, and Heidi Klum too.

Now, we can get to know some more faces in this new era for the program. Meet the new Project Runway designers.
