Last night was the season thee finale of Project Runway All Stars! Did Elena, Korto, or Seth Aaron win? Read on to see!
The final challenge is to create a six-piece collection that showcases the designer’s talent. They have only four days to complete all the looks! The inspiration will come from a country of their heritage. Remember, the designers are competing for the biggest prize in Project Runway history!
Elena is getting inspiration from her Ukraine heritage, Seth Aaron is channeling his Spanish roots, and Korto and her inspiration both hail from Liberia. The group visits the United Nations and meets the delegates from those countries. Korto shares a touching story about leaving her country and losing everything in the war. A lady from her church paid for her to go to design school… how sweet! After sketching designs at the UN, it’s time to pick out fabric at Mood.
Back in the workroom, Elena is feeling the pressure of the competition and is slightly panicking. The next day, mentor Zanna Roberts Rassi gives advice to the designers and wishes them good luck. She brings in helpers for them too! Viktor is helping Elena, Jeffrey is assisting Seth Aaron, and Christopher is helping Korto. The three designers will only be there for 24 hours, so time must be spent wisely. Christopher is even wearing a funny ‘Team Korto’ shirt!
Host Alyssa Milano shows up with a twist for the designers. They must add a seventh look to their collection! At least fifty percent of the look has to be made of colorful scarves from the Theodora & Callum collection. Not surprisingly, Elena is not happy and starts crying.
The final runway show takes place at the UN and the guest judges are designer Zac Posen and CBS co-host (and Oprah BFF) Gayle King. Elena presents first, followed by Seth Aaron, and then Korto. All the designers receive high praise from both the guests and the judges. There is no clear winner at first, but after deliberation the winner comes down to Seth Aaron and Korto. Drumroll please… and the winner of Project Runway All Stars is Seth Aaron! Congratulations to him and thanks for following along all season!
