Iman discusses the final three, and what she think Jeffrey should do now.

on Jan 25, 20110

Bravo: So this week was the final three, and the designers are tasked with presenting a final ten-look collection. What were hoping to see from each of them in what they presented?

Iman: Their singular vision. Their ability to tell their own story in a collection and more importantly create a cohesive collection. They were all able to do this.

Bravo: But of course there was a twist: the designers had to create one look based on the judges' wishes. How did you guys come up with what they had to design, and why did you pick those items for each of them?


Iman: We wanted them to get out of their comfort zone and show us that they can create something that they don't normally do but that will still work in their collection.

Bravo: Let's start with Calvin's collection. He's definitely evolved and showed much simpler, more understated designs compared to the dress from the beginning of the season. What did you think of his collection?

Iman: Calvin's collection was beautiful and it showed why we kept him in the game for this long. He is not everyobdy's cup of tea, but he showed that he is a talented designer and not only with his deconstructed garments but with suits as well...oh, and a beautiful long evening red dress! He has put the naysayers to rest.

Love the show. Question:Why not give the designers a bit more time to complete their final collections? Even two weeks would be good. An awful lot of work to do in such a short period of time. Amazed they did as well as they did.

Having sat throught the season, I must say that your presence was the most interesting part of the revamped show. Otherwise, it's just a poor substitute for Project Runway. I hope you remain to play another day. You were a hoot and a holler. The finale was completely predictable. There was no way that annoying Calvin (who slipped through the cracks each week) would end up winning. He never won a single challenge. In fact, he didn't even come in second place. The final 3 should have been: Jeffrey, Cesar and Eduardo. Dominique was okay, but not exceptional. Many of her pieces had unfinished hems. If she were on PR, she would have been eliminated earlier on. Calvin would probably have not even made onto that show in the first place. Jeff's win made sense, but wasn't surprising, by the longest shot. Since the talent, overall, was mediocre; I tuned in to see what YOU would say. You never disappointed. I liked your toughness. I hope you return (if the series continues).

Thank heavens Jeffrey won! His collection was beautiful, wearable, and seemed well constructed. Dominique's collection was just okay and showed that she still has a lot of growing to do. And thank heavens, Calvin lost ( he should have gone much sooner). All his clothes show is that he hates women - just like he seems to hate everyone else. A thoroughly disgusting person.

I think the right person won. Jeffrey's designs were fantastic. I'm also glad that Calvin made the finals...despite himself. Each week I couldn't wait to see Calvin's antics...I was so entertained by his tantrums, cursing with his non-standard English accent, etc. He cracked me up!

Hi Iman,

Thanks to the fashion gods that you did not eliminate Calvin. He is a trip. I loved that you were in the show. This show is classy and it is mostly thanks to you (the other 49% is Isaac, ha, ha). It was a pleasure to watch the show. I am a total fan. You both (and the judges) never made fun or demeaned any of the designers like some other shows. That respect to the designers is what sets your show apart. It is never cool to make fun of any artist, no matter what they produce. Thank You

I already miss you Iman! I was very impressed with each of their collections. I hoped that Jeffrey WOULD win, but I would not have felt that the other two were undeserving. However, Jeffrey's story is quite beautiful. I was happy Dominique had a joyful reunion with Eduardo. Calvin not only progressed, he showed heart; and his heart belongs with an ailing lover. I wish them all the best and will watch for each of them in the future.

Iman, you must return next year! Your experience and no- nonsense critiques were spot on. Your obvious regret and encouragement for those sent home was charming and endearing as well. Kudos to Isaac, Bravo and the judges.

I was very excited to see the finale. Words cannot express how excited I was to really see Calvin's collection. I honestly think he evolved the most and gave us a show that proved he deserved to be in the final 3, or actually the final 2!! Dominique put on a great show too, but I agree that her technique and editing still need to evolve, but since she is only 21, she has the luxery of having time and the experience of this show on her side. Jeffrey, what can I say, the man makes beautiful clothes....his first white outfit to come down the runway almost blew me away, it was gorgeous. There is no doubt that he can create amazing clothes that any woman who wants to be noticed would wear. I am so proud of him as well and I know his mother is looking down on him with joy in her heart......This has been an amazing journey wathcing this show, I think what sets it apart from the rest is the amazing creativity of not only the designer, but the Fashion shows themselves. Its not just the model running down a plain runway, each show has a life, a story of its own. I actually get emotional watching the shows from not just the models, but the music, the set design, is all amazing. From reading the blogs, I see that Stefan has a huge hand in that and for that, I give him, and the entire show kutos for an awesome season.....can't wait for the next one!!

I agree 100% with the top 3 placements last night. I wish them all the best. And Iman, I sincerely hope Jeffrey takes your advice. He is a talented, kind-hearted and special young man. I hope he gets to live out his dreams. Very touched by his story and Calvin's.

Iman, you are beautiful and smart! :) Looking forward to next season.
