The Fashion Show Ultimate Collection: Iman On Week Nine’s Challenge

January 19, 2011 03:30 PM by Lori Wilson


This week’s challenge on The Fashion Ultimate Collection sent Cesar home packing. While it was a bit of surprise to see the strong designer and season-long team leader go home before the finale, Calvin’s bizarre pregnancy look might have been more shocking. Regardless if you agreed or disagreed with the outcome, it’s all in the hands of The Fashion Show judges and to clarify things, Iman answered a few questions on her Bravo blog to explain last night’s elimination.

First off, Iman explained why House of Nami won the natural elements inspired challenged. “It was experimental, arty, edgy and conceptual…something that no one has done so far in this show,” she declared. “The choice of colors was chic and the fabrics looked expensive, especially the camel color. Their show concept was theatrical, yet executed beautifully. It was fashion show as conceptual eye candy.”

But what about Calvin’s beloved pregnancy look that the judges hated? Iman recounted, “Seated where we are, we see everything up-close…the good, the bad, and the ugly – and this particular ‘pregnant’ dress was a bad! But one bad dress doesn’t kill the collection. We didn’t want to throw out the unborn baby with the bath water so to speak! Say, what you may about Calvin but he came up with the winning concept.”

So House of Nami’s collection was a hit, but what how did the judges really feel about House of Emerald’s collection? “Cesar overextended himself. He really needs to learn how to edit and use his time constructively,” Iman mused. “Nevertheless he is an accomplished designer, and Jeffrey had good dresses and bad ones but overall it was a weak collection. We were very impressed with Jeffrey’s ‘redo.’”

Cesar seemed to be a lock throughout the season to go to the finals, but was surprisingly eliminated from the Bravo reality show. Iman’s not worried about his future as a designer though. “Cesar is a master at a lot of things, not only as a dress-making technician but the man’s hand painting technique is genius,” Iman praised. “I think this is just an intermission for him, and he will go far regardless of us. I am glad that this show has showcased his exceptional talent.”

Do you agree with Iman’s assessment of week nine of The Fashion Show Ultimate Collection? Are you surprised by which designers made it to the finale?
