Chris or Rami? The Judges' Deliberation
Chris and Rami presented their three strongest looks to Heidi, Nina, and Michael. The judges' deliberation went on for hours. They probed and interrogated Rami and Chris until I thought both would collapse from stress and fatigue. And there was one moment -- I remember if vividly -- when I said to myself, "Chris is out." He and Rami were each asked, "Who's your customer?" Rami answered clearly, articulately, and believably. Chris responded, "I don't know." That was it for me. Over. His inability to know who his customer is underscored the fact that he's really a costume designer, not a fashion designer. Chris, we love you.
