On last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars, Joshua was so close to securing a spot in the season finale but didn’t make the cut when his Couture inspired gown failed to measure up. Keep reading to see what Joshua had to say about his elimination.
According to Lifetime, Joshua said it all came down to “what [the judges] liked at the moment.” But he didn’t necessarily agree with their decision. “I think Anthony Ryan had a pretty dress but ultimately in terms of the design aspect of it, it didn’t stimulate me to think that it was a Couture piece. It was a beautiful dress that you could see in any store currently but not on a Couture runway.”
“But his wasn’t really my main issue,” he continued. “I was just more blown away by the somewhat praise that Emilio received for his gown. I think it was basic. We’ve seen the shape before. We’ve seen the design before,” he said. “I feel as though Uli and myself fulfilled the criteria of Couture closer than Anthony Ryan and Emilio but ironically, it was the reverse. Me and Uli were on the bottom and Anthony Ryan and Emilio were on the top.”
In the end Joshua said, “It’s really just the way the game goes. I think I did some great work and I’m proud of everything that I’ve done. If I have to go home on a Couture challenge, that’s okay. We’re in the bubble of just doing challenge after challenge but there’s a whole other audience that will view this and have their own opinions.”
“I’m humbled to have had the opportunity to join this cast in doing Project Runway All Stars. I think it’s been an amazing ride but what I’m excited for is what to come next. And you know this of course will not be the last that you see of me.”
