It’s all over for Season 3, and Jeffrey has been named the winner of Project Runway. But whose collection did you think brought down the house at Olympus Fashion week? Did you too love Jeffrey’s Japanese inspired punk polka-dots and stripes (second from right)? Or are you dying for Laura’s elegant black gowns, feathers and beads included (right)? Lusting after Uli’s safari-inspired dresses and teeny bikinis (left)? Or are you on the prowl for Michael’s tiger prints and sexy satin shorts (second from left)? Tell us: whose collection did you like best? Were the judges right in picking Jeffrey as the winner?

PR just lost a devoted fan.
Shouldn’t a huge portion of the judges’ decision be based on ACTUAL marketability? Designers are there to sell clothing and that requires not only innovation (or the perception of it) but solid business skills.

Yes Jeffrey’s a jerk, but that’s not the only reason he shouldn’t have won. Jeffrey and his L.A.M.B. wannabe aesthetic does fit a certain demographic, but it’s a very narrow market that is extremely fickle. He proved over and over that he is terrible at working with people; not only his colleagues but even his OWN clients. He went over budget and couldn’t even produce receipts for his purchases. All those things are bad business, period. I’d never want that little dork playing with my money. Bad investment.

I was a fan of Laura’s all along (but loved aspects of Michael as well; it’s really too bad he went so hoochie); to me, Laura was the most consistent and marketable; her style is timeless, it’ll be around forever. But man oh man, ULI WAS ROBBED last night. She really really blew me away. She designed a cohesive, innovative, marketable, line that was GORGEOUS and would appeal to women of ALL demographics (unlike the others). She works extremely well with other people, is solid and has integrity. Her line was fun & sexy & chic. What else did the judges want?

The judges were unfair, they chose Jeffrey for drama and ratings. Shame on them. Why is it that in the fashion or art world, the one with the biggest mouth and most bullying attitude gets so much respect, regardless of actual real-world skills? “Edginess” is a turn on, but it will only take you so far in the real world. I thought they’d be above such junior high sensibilities. I’ll never watch again.

Michael dropped the ball and made a collection that was more skany, stripper-esqe and slutty than sexy, sultry and another synonym.

Laura’s work was classy, sophisticated, but entirely predictable and over-all, a bit boring. Personally, I think if anyone is to be accused of out-sourcing, it’s Laura. All delicate and intricate that beadwork while raising five young children and being pregnant with your sixth? Doubtful.

Although it was a little predictable, Uli’s collection was entirely wearable, absolutely stunning and was above and beyond anything I would have truly expected from her.

Jeffrey made an amazing collection. Not every piece was fantastic, but at least it showed superb craftsmanship, thought on line and style, and creativity that was unparalleled by anyone else in the group.

I definatly agree!!! Congrats to Jeffery!!! I never thought he had outshide help and I thought it was completly redivulous that Laura would suggest it! His and Uli’s collections were the best. I would have been happy with either of them winning!

I have been a fan of Project Runway from the very begining, but once again I am left disappointed when a more deserving and talented designer did not win. I was a total Michael supporter but understood when they told him he needs more experience. Jeffrey was an ok designer, but I feel Uli’s collection stood out the most. This is the second time a more talented designer was left behind (Kara Saun Season One).

Uli was robbed!!! I always loved Laura’s designs, but Uli has always been consistently good. I would buy and wear every piece that she made (in the collection and throughout the show)–it was perfection! I loved everyone, but she deserved to win! She has the most marketable and wearable designs.

After reading a few posts, I have to say that I am shocked by what everyone is saying. Who made you the authority on whether or not Jeffrey cheated? Did you see receipts? Did you see the garments up close? How would you know? Get off your high horse- you are not the end all be all opinion on fashion. Maybe you should trust those in the industry.

I was sooo disappointed in the decision last night.Michael was my favorite designer in the competition, but Uli was the clear winner……How could they even think of giving the victory to someone other than her. It’s just like season 1 when the judges robbed Kara Sun.

Katie on

I have watched this season from the very first episode. I can honestly say I may never watch again. Michael has been my favorite, but he did not deserve the win. After seeing the collections, I thought that Uli was the obvious winner. She definitely showed more range and women would most definitely wear her clothes. I cannot express how disappointed I am with the outcome. There is no way that Jeffrey should have won last night. It was never more evident then last night, that this show is more about the controversy as opposed to great design.

More ugly, senseless, trendy fashion.
