Week four of The Fashion Show Ultimate Collection saw Rolando go home after Iman deemed him out of fashion. In his extended interview on Bravo, the fashion designer shares his feelings on leaving the competition and who he wants to see in the finale.
Of being sent home, Rolando shared, “I am sad my time is cut short. I learned a lot and met some great people. I think that David deserves to be where he’s at. He definitely wants this a lot more than I do. I can see it working next to him. He really busted his ass this week. If you look at Cesar or Edward or David, they have been doing this for a long time. I’m 24-years-old. I think that’s such a big reason why I donâ€™t mind walking away without tears or being angry.”
Regarding what his House of Nami teammates said about him, Rolando mused, “Even though other people might think that I’m hurt from the comments that the housemates made about me, I definitely am not. They’re doing what’s best for the house and the competition. Everybody else saw me struggle too. There is no room for error here. I was not one hundred percent happy with my look at the end and on a competition like this, you have to be one hundred percent and it did end up hurting me.”
Even though he was eliminated from The Fashion Show Ultimate Collection, Rolando retained a positive outlook. “I am happy that I came here. I think this has been one of the best experiences I’ve had. I am proud of every single garment. I wouldnâ€™t change anything except for this last challenge. I want to see everybody succeed. From the beginning, I always told Cesar and Edward that I want to see them next to each other at the end.”
As for the future, Rolando said, “Now that all this is over, I want to focus on just getting back home and working on my website, working on a lot more pieces. Just keep on working with clients and getting my work out there.”
