Chloe Dao’s winning Fall 2006 collection
So we all know by now that Chloe Dao is the official Project Runway winner, and was up against fierce competition like Santino Rice. Personally, I liked Rice’s stuff better, but what do I know? I’m honestly a little shocked…his designs and fabrics were really beautiful, but obviously not as innovative as Dao’s.
The question now is…will her line live on? Could Dao gain American Idol type notoriety like Kelley Clarkson, or will she just fade into the background? Will be seeing her frocks in glossy mags for the next year, or forever? Only time will tell.
What did you think about the whole Project Runway business? I honestly didn’t follow it too much, but as reality gameshow contests go, I thought this was a pretty good (albeit, possibly stolen) idea.
