TFS: Daniella’s Collection
Which does bring to mind a question: Why do so many of you dislike her so much? Granted, we really don’t want the comments section to turn into nothing but post after post declaring undying hatred, but we don’t get it. Sure, she was a little bitchy, but how is that different from any of the other contestants?
We will say this: we weren’t all that impressed with this collection in person, but it does photograph pretty well. She said that the inspiration for the collection was medieval and Japanese armor and we guess we can sort of see that.
This was probably our favorite look, EXCEPT for that bustier. Isaac praised it to the heavens, but Isaac always was a little stuck in the ’90s. Thank god Fern had the balls to say “If I see another leather bustier…”
Still, we love the vest and the pants.
Again, it’s very much what we’re seeing on runways right now. Daniella rightfully prides herself on being the most modern among the finalists, but there’s “modern” and then there’s “following the latest trends.” And again, terrible fit.
In the end, it was not our favorite collection but we understand why the judges loved it. It’s because she’s the only one of the final four who demonstrated a real understanding of what’s going on in fashion right now. Now, if we were judges, that would force the question as to whether she can create looks or just follow the trends. Further, she has a real problem with fit and even with execution in some of these looks. She’s talented and like all the finalists, she’s got the potential for a real future in the industry, but we’re not convinced that this is a winning collection.
