That was my reaction as the finale of season three of Project Runway Philippines drew to a close last night. Amazing, breathtaking, beautiful clothes on display – and an amazing, breathtaking and beautiful crop of finalists too.
I think I cannot overstate it by saying the level of talent in the finale is the highest yet on this show. Had they competed in different seasons, three of the four designers could have won their own batches with the level of workmanship and amazing designs they displayed. In fact, I’ll go right ahead and say that this season easily blows US Project Runway out of the water – well, the last four or five seasons, at least.
Plus, there was the nail-biting conclusion of two equally talented (but markedly aesthetically different) designers going head-to-head for the crown. Were you Team Cheetah or Team Milka? I surprised myself for ultimately casting my vote with the serene Milka, but more on that later.
Enough superlatives – let’s get down to judging!
