will come to a close tonight, and just three designers remain to battle it out for a collection in Saks, Macy's and H&M - Kara Laricks, Nzimiro Oputa and Ronnie Escalante.
The trio recently spoke with reporters about their time on the show, their nightmares in the run-up to the finale, and what they would change if they could go back, so read on to find out what they had to say!
I knew that my competition was going to be the H&M and the Macy's - the other designers in Macy's. ' There are 100 designers in Macy's and H&M is so cutting edge and trendy, so how can I be different?I think that was a little bit of a wakeup call for me, so I decided to keep it clean, add those details, and try to keep it still as me, as a designer with what my identity is. Every time you try to do a challenge you try to think of Saks as well and something that could appeal to all the retailers or all the stores.It was a challenge sometimes - you think, 'Okay, I'm making this for Saks' and they end up not going to Saks.Sometimes you don't want to confuse them, sometimes you don't want to overdo your garments, so I think fabric and detailing for me was one of the things that I definitely learned and I think I'm going to apply that in the show, for sure." Kara: "Good point! And in addition, I think the best part of this show is having to execute your vision and you have your team with you.
Before, you're a little unsure of yourself and as the show progressed - I pretty much know who I am and what I want and I think that was the best part, gaining that confidence.And for me the biggest change was to be able to see what I was capable of when I had the resources to create full garments week by week, so I'd do a dress and go, 'Alright, if a dress is possible I can do a tailcoat; if a tailcoat's a possibility, I can do a full-length dress' and it just got more and more exciting to see what I was capable of with the resources.
