IRINA

And the Winner is…. IRINA SHABAYEVA!

On the Season 6 finale of Project Runway Irena’s all black cohesive collection inspired by the NY “Warrior Woman” was chosen by 4 judges to be the best. The judges included Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and guest judge Suzy Menkes (International Herald Tribune Critic).

Althea’s collection, which was inspired by Sci-Fi movies of the ’50s and ’60s, and had a futuristic feel never quite reached the future according to the judges. She was praised for her ability to translate the street into RTW fashion.

Carol Hannah, who credits gothic architecture and fairytales for her inspiration, was auf’d because the judges did not see the “thread” between the pieces in her collection.

Irina who lives in NY leaves with a cash prize of $100,000 to start her own line, an editorial in Marie Claire Magazine and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Paris.

Kalyn Hemphill of NY was the winning Model and also received a $25,000 cash prize from L’Oreal and a spread in Marie Claire Magazine.

Who do you think should have won the title of America’s Next Great Designer? Do you think the judges got it right?    COMMENT…

Season 7 of Project Runway will return to NYC and will air the first episode on January 14th, 2010 on Lifetime.
