Uli was a strong competitor throughout Project Runway All Stars but she failed to win the competition when faux fur embellishments made her mini collection look inexpensive. What did Uli think about placing second runner up? Take the jump to find out.
According to Lifetime, at the end of the day, Uli was just glad it was over. “I am so relieved the show is over,” she said. “Last week was so intense – putting all this together in such a short time…finally it’s over.”
She admits she was excited to see her work hit the runway. “When I see all my [models], I’m really, really happy; it’s exactly what I pictured. There’s many pieces that go into it and they all have to fit and sit perfectly. I love how it all came together, the music, the models, the hair and makeup, the clothes. The whole show, I think, works together very well – almost better than I expected.”
“My second look is my least strong look but it goes in with the collection, very Uli but different enough than what I’ve done during the season so I’m very pleased.”
But Uli said she knew she was in trouble when the judges critiqued her collection. “When I get my critique, I know I’m definitely not the winner.” She explains, “There was too much negative so I know I’m not going to [win] and I’m probably not going to be second. But I love what I put out there and it’s really a taste thing. I think we all knew who [was going to] win this just by track record and I don’t think there’s a big surprise there.”
“I don’t have any regrets. The only thing you should regret [are] things you didn’t do. I did everything I could do. I’m really happy with what I put out and I think there’s people out there who love what I did. Some people [may not] agree with what I did but that’s just the way of life. You have to please you first and be true to yourself and put out there what you want to show and what you are about.”
She said she thinks the experience is really going to help her career in the future and she’s “absolutely happy” with the way she placed in the competition.
