Ripping the Collections: Korto, Part 1




We honestly assumed that Korto was going to win based on the editing of the last episode and we're going to admit that we would have been a little upset if she had. We think her collection was beautiful and dramatic but we also felt it suffered from some problems that in our opinion disqualified her from the win. We felt it was second place, but a very close second place.

One area where she was head and shoulders above the others was in the styling. The tight buns and colorful fans, along with the absolutely gorgeous jewelry combined with the best music out of all the shows served as a perfect complement to her vibrant, colorful clothes.

Let's start the show.




This is a stunnngly beautiful dress in a gorgeous color. It's also perfectly fitted; look at the way it hugs her body like a second skin. It is, however, as basic as a design gets. There's nothing wrong with doing simple and sleek but when you've only got ten looks to show, we wonder if this was the best idea. Still, it was nice to see something so simple when a lot of her looks were more complicated.






Speaking of complicated...we don't like this dress at all. For one, the color looks terrible against Amanda's pale skin. She would have been better off putting this on a darker-skinned model. It's also terribly overworked. That fabric looks exhausted. To top it off, we're not crazy about the silhouette.






We absolutely love the top of this dress, but something goes wrong about halfway down. We're not sure if it's just a case of it being a bad fit on the model or what, but it gets weirdly loose right around her stomach and then very tight below that. Plus it's just too short. Love the sleeves and the pleating on the bust, though.






This look is absolutely gorgeous. We love the collar and the pleating at the top. Nothing else to add, really. Just a stunning, dramatic look.






We love this dress too. That's a beautiful print and it perfectly works in all the colors from the rest of the collection. At first we thought it felt like this model had wandered in from another show but the more we look at it, the more we think it fits with the rest of the looks. As we said, the colors sum up her entire collection and the silhouette and beading at the collar fit right in with the rest of them. It would have been nice to see this print show up somewhere else - like in a belt or sash - just to tie it in a little better.

I thought that last dress was startlingly similar to Jack's first dress in Season 4. I mean, Jack's had a blue trim with a black and white print, and Korto's uses a yellow trim with a more colorful print, but the construction and silhouette of both looks remarkably the same (to my untrained eye, at least).


When that first dress came down the runway, I thought WOW! Absolutely gorgeous. It went kind of downhill from there. . . that is, some highs, but nothing with the same impact. That green dress is way too short -- could have been a stunner had it been longer. . . maybe even long, like her grocery store challenge dress. And the one on Amanda--I don't get it. Tim said he loved it; I thought maybe I'd understand that 'cause you Boys would tell us how great it was in person, but. . . no. Agree about the styling, though--loved the fans! But that first dress, simple as it was was a stunner.


At least Korto will get a lot of exposure. I will look for her designs at the stores next year.


I felt that the dress Amanda wore needed a bit more editing and just a bit more thought. It was an evolution from her challange where she was teamed up with Joe and I was happy for that but it could have been worked in a less heavy fabric perhaps. I loved the two simple gown (the blue one) and dress (the one which at first seems incongruous). the white pants with top was sublime.


oh and the green dress on bianca seems to suffer from the same fit/fabric issue, but otherwise i think its such an interesting silouette (or however one spells it)


That first dress took my breath away. I don't think it could be any more beautiful.


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

I agree with you TLo, that Amanda's look is overworked. It reminds me of used tin foil.

I'd also completely forgotten about the print dress. I like Korto's use of prints better than you-know-who's, but if you're going to introduce prints, it might be nice ot have other items in the collection as well.

Yes, overall a close second, but second nonetheless.


Agree 95% with TLo - I couldn't get past the wrongness of the too-short oddly crumply green dress to see how it might have been successful. I am not convinced that longer & fitting better it would have succeeded. But better eyes than mine have deemed it so - not just TLo but also brooklyn bomber - so it must be so!


I thought the exact same thing when the taupe dress came out. Amanda has the absolute wrong complexion for that fabric. As far as it being overworked, I agree (I don't really like the look at all), but if I'm not mistaken, that was one of the two looks she cranked out the day before the show so that in itself is pretty impressive.


I loved the first and the last dress, although I do think the last one was a little too casual compared to the rest of the collection. Still, a very cute dress and I would totally wear it sans beads.


Agree with TLo's comments on the individual designs. (The 4th look is GORG.) But while the show, as I watched it on the tele, felt cohesive, I don't really get - looking at it here - the sequencing of the outfits. One reason why the 5th look seems incongruous, for example, is b/c it makes little sense how she moves from the 4th to 5th look.
Isolating the first 5 looks from the last 5 results in a rather underwhelming collection.


thank you! the short green dress bothered me so much! i couldn't understand why she put a slit up the center right by the crotch...


Did anyone else feel like the white outfit, while stunning, had a bit of a Leanne feel to it and the print dress, while also cute, had a bit of a Kenley feel to it? I mean, both outfits are definetly Korto pieces, but I just felt there was a bit of "her take" on the other competitors styles to them.


formerlyanon, haha--what do i know?

Nevertheless. . .

The more I look at the little print dress, the more I like it. Great print, which doesn't compete with the silhouette. With Korto, I think it's really true that less is more.

BUT: the whole thing about how she designs for "real women" and different body types -- I could see that in some of her challenge designs, but I don't see it in the collection, which has some very short skirts, very fitted waists, etc. What am I missing?


Korto's styling was fabulous - the fans, the hair and the music were just great. Anyone know what that music was?

I loved a lot of the collection but most of the designs were very, very simple. Lots of basic halter looks. They did look very off-the-rack. Which is why she'll be very successful - there's going to be a market for her ready-to-wear. But it's also why it's appropriate that she didn't win since there really wasn't much that was fashion forward or innovative.

When she did veer away from the simple patterns she tended to get into trouble. I hated that dress that Amanda wore. It was overworked and overwrought and not very sophisticated. It was also terribly unflattering. Ditto for the long white dress which was just tacky. And I find it odd that she put the white and beige dresses on the only two white models she had. Those dresses probably wouldn't have looked good on anyone, IMO, but they would have been better on darker skinned girls. Amanda and the blonde could have rocked some of the brighter colors.

The other dress I didn't like was the short (too short!) green dress. Was this the "snapshot" dress Tim criticized? If so it looked better without the flash of snakeskin highlighting the va-ja-jay but it still wasn't very good. The fit was seriously off.

Otherwise loved pretty much everything. A solid second place. And she'll probably end up making more money than anyone. Kudos to her!


Dang, I really, really liked the dress that you didn't. Then again she designs for women's bodies and as a woman, I would wear that in a heartbeat.

As far as the Green (too-short) one on Bianca, I agree with your assessment.
The white pants outfit - meh.

But I have to stand up for the first one. Whenever I've gone into a really expensive department store, I think a lot of the clothes look very simple - but often very "handmade" (and not in a good way). With Korto's clothes, when they look simple they look very well crafted.


The fifth dress, the print with the yellow trim, was my absolute favorite. It was simple, stunning, and could translate to a number of body types.

The turquoise gown was beautiful.

Then, everything else began to disconnect for me. I'll save my opinions about 'Korto and the wedding dress' for part 2. Either the white gown you will show there or the white pant ensemble would have worked for the challenge! I would have loved to see someone bust the convention that a wedding gown has to be a gown! For goodness gracious sakes!

Back to Korto's aesthetic. I still hold that African American women would love to celebrate their heritage without having to dress in "costume." Korto is on to something. But part of making that look successful is isolating key elements of the African style in a given look--while streamlining the rest. She should keep working on it because she's very close.


I'm baffled by the crotch slit on the green dress that ANTM's Bianca is wearing. Taken in conjunction with the vadge coatdress that Tim saw during his visit, it makes me wonder if there was a theme.

And I HATE Amanda's dress--it totally gives the lie to this "women of all sizes can wear it" nonsense that people spout about Korto. She looks like shes' being consumed by fabric.


tvkimmy - Just because it was a print doesn't make it Kenley's - haha - like she doesn't have a copyright on shorter bridesmaid dresses. (or feathers, etc.)

The shape/style was NOTHING like Kenley's. Thank God. And I thought is was VERY cute - which I cannot say about Kenley's.


Thank you again for the great pictures, TLo! So may details you just can't see on your screen. I love the first dress, it fits her like a glove. I have to say that the model in the short green dress is FABULOUS, she is rocking that dress like no other. Isn't she one of the ANTM models?


It looks like the green dress rides up on the model, and that's how it ended up to short. I've had skirts like that and I hated having to shimmy the skirt back down to its rightful place. They usually end up in the dustbin. I love that last look. Isn't the dress on Amanda one of the two she made right before the Runway show?


Good pieces overall. Loved the white pantsuit but some of those dresses were too damn short

That green one alone!!!

Frank


I was seriously worried about Korto's show after looks 2 and 3, which were very worrisome (I agree with TLo, that color on Amanda was deadly). Then I just lerved looks 4 and 5 TO DEATH. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. On the other hand, 4 and 5 don't look like they're related to 1,2,3, do they? Color me confused.


I think the show really could have been improved if the order the dresses came down the runway was different. As it currently is, it feels very disjointed.


Interesting ideas but just not enough cohesion.

Simple or not, that first dress was fabulous. The "Amanda" dress maybe needed a pair of dark leggings to anchor it. Yup, I can see the Leanne influence on the white pantsuit. And the fifth dress is cute but it takes some mental gymnastics to see how it fits with the others.


I was really hoping that Korto would use more drumming in her music.


The jewelry was a little too big & chunky for my taste.

I liked her colors.

The Amanda dress looked like a challenge dress to me. It didn't look fully thought out...or maybe was over-thought.

The tootie slit in the hem of the green dress bothered me. I got scared I was going to see something that I didn't want to see.

I wish she had more types of clothing. All but the last dress in this bunch looked like evening wear. Nothing wrong with evening wear but I would have preferred more variety and versatility.


I agree with almost everything you said, with the exception of the print dress. It may work in the other colors of the collection...but it was also THE ONLY thing with print in the entire collection. Just as the blue dress was the only blue thing in the entire collection. I don't think she necessarily needed to repeat these elements, but the rest of her collection was so homogenous that it made these two items stand out completely.


The green dress is the one that had the "sexual" shaped snakeskin that Tim commented on-- she took out the insert and that's the reason the dress fits so poorly. I think she should have left it in and then we wouldn't have had actual crotch showing...


No. 4 ~ the white pantsuit GASP! I love it. Just the thing for Jamaica on one of our dress up nights out. Beachside patio with a rum punch fanning myself as I await the chef's creation for us. Sigh.
It looks like silk? That wouldn't do for JA , need it in a smooth,crisp cotton sateen I think.

I thought that look was more forgiving to a non-model figure and I liked that she has looks for different shapes and even ages in her collection! Unlike Leanne's which is pretty much for young, thin women. Korto's work is appealing in that it would cost much less than Leanne's and Kenley's to make and would appeal to a wider variety of buyer. Throughout the season her garments have been the ones that I've wanted to wear the most!

I've always been confused about the goal of Project Runway. They reward sewing and construction skills but most working designers don't make the clothes themselves; they like designers who can succeed in many different genres of style, yet a lot of the successful big designers are pretty static (Calvin Klein? Diane Von Furstenberg? Same shit, different year...); they HATE anything remotely matronly but most women who can afford expensive, high end clothes are older, and Michaels Kors own RTW work is pretty much clothes retired ladies buy for cruises. And, I may be wrong but I'm not sure that there have been any huge successes coming out of this show. Sure they get exposure but what does it do for them? Chloe still runs her her store, Jeffrey still sells his shitty line, Jay is a huge failure, it's too early to tell about Christian. The person who's career seems to have benefitted most from PR is Tim Gunn!

If you were a designer, what would you expect from a Project Runway win besides the money and Saturn Vue? What can Leanne look forward to?


I only THOUGHT the small green dress frightened me, and then I saw the model turn around and go back up the runway. OY!


By the way, I finally got my ass over to Alex's store yesterday (I live a few blocks away) and met the man himself. We had a nice little visit, and the store is extremely interesting and cool. It's now on my where-to-shop-for-gifts-in-the-neighborhood itinerary.

TLo, when are you going to get yourselves out here to see the store and our fabulous little stretch of Brooklyn (where, by the way, Stacy & Clinton have taken some of their victims to shop -- that's how happening we are)?


I know I'm in the minority here, but I think she should have won. I don't think you can "take color out of it" as TLo suggested, and her use of color is fabulous. I do understand that Leanne's was more Fashion and something "newer", but I really loved this stuff more.

Having said that - ditto to everything except that since the jewelry is incorporated into the first dress, it removes the "simple" for me. And my God, it is gorgeous.

Just a note - Amanda's dress probably looked like a challenge dress because it was one of those last minute add-ons (you can watch her working on it during the 2nd finale.)


I agree that Korto had the best styling. She also had the best color story (there hasn't been a finalist since Jay who has used color as well), and she also she also had designs that would work on the widest variety of body types. I also adore the African elements.

To me it was a toss-up between her and LeeAnn, but I think where (maybe) she fell short was maybe that she had great ideas/elements, that just missed in the end.

But of all three finalists, Korto's was the collection that could go into any upscale department store tomorrow and sell out.

That first dress was fabulous and a glamorous way to start. Simple in silhouette but powerful in execution. Totally agree about Amanda's dress. She walked the shit of it, but that dress was all wrong for her coloring. It also had the problem with proportions that some of Korto's other dresses did. The waist sits above the natural waist but too low to be an empire which makes the skirt look too short and too short-waisted. That in turn makes the top seem even more disproportionately large. Sorry, Tim, this dress was not sublime.

The too short green dress is falling off Bianca's shoulder so the fit of the top looks wonky too. And not only does it have a slit in the front, it has a slit in the back. Yikes.

The white pants outfit would have been a stunning, modern take on a wedding
dress." The print dress is very cute, but Tlo you're right about how that print needed to be worked into the collection somewhere else too.

--

Exactly! That's one of the reasons Leanne got the win.
As stunning as the white pantsuit was, not to mention the Saturn jacket, you'd think her collection would have been a little more versatile.


I loved Korto's collection and I can't wait for her clothing to be available in stores or online


I love colors. I adore bright, vivid colors, and studying color was a passion of mine in art school. I know this does not make me any kind of expert, but I don't know why everyone's raving about Korto's "fabulous color sense." She picked a pretty shade of bright green and repeated it multiple times, and threw in a bright blue, some white, and some yellows and beige. Nothing about it particularly excited or inspired me, and the only colors I can distinctly remember her using for the challenges was bright orange.

It's not bad, by any means, but if anything I'd say her color sense is limited rather than fabulous. With her natural/African inspirations, she could have done so much more.


The white outfit is beyond fab.


I actually hated the fans. I'm glad you posted pictures of them- now I'll tolerate them but from my little TV- they looked like cardboard church-fans. Blech.
Also blech? The model Bianca from ANTM in the short green dress. That girl is a bitch on heels.


Loved that white pant outfit.

Now THAT's something you could get married in!


I agree with most of TLo's comments so I will comment on their comments (and hopefully it will be briefer):

Overall, Korto had several good creations, but the show itself was clunky and awkward. I also thought there were some execution problems even before Kenley brought it up in an interview. I know, I know but hey, it's Kenley.

1. Oh My Gaa, the fit on this dress was MAGNIFICENT! My only criticism is that the necklace didn't work.

2. While not a favorite, I actually like this dress a bit better than TLo. [Nina wagging finger] There's something going on with that hem. Also, it needs to be yanked down and steamed. I actually think it works on Amanda, perhaps because of her red hair; it may have worked even better if the fabric was a little bronzier. Can you imagine Amanda in one of Korto's green dresses, my mouth is actually watering at the thought of it.

3. Hate.

Darn, I wish I could end it at that, but I can't help myself. The model is New Yawker Bianca, she was on ANTM and known for stirring up crap. One of her best known insults is "Ya need to check ya thighs in tha mirra!" I couldn't help but chant this as she walked down the runway. Actually, she has fabulous legs, but this would had worked much better on one of those pony-legged models, also with several other fixes. Bianca is also the one whose family got into a brawl with Nikki Blonsky's family.

4. Love, LoVE, LOVE! Fabulous model casting for this look. I really, really wish Korto had more pants in her collection.

5. Cute dress, but it doesn't fit in with the collection and has possible hem issues. I really like how Korto accented the dress with the yellow fabric.


The colors are fantastic. The styling is awesome. I agree, there's some overwork on the tan dress and the short green dress looks a bit funky in the waist. Also, the green dress is far too short.

That final dress in this group looks quite nice, although for some reason I don't remember seeing it come down the runway. Not sure why this is.

Overall, I liked this collection. Didn't love it, however.


I thought it was odd that Korto made two 'new' dresses at the last minute. I wonder if she actually just took apart and re-made the bridesmaid's and wedding dresses .... there seem to be parts of them in her collection (kinda Frankenstein). Any thoughts?


That green look is a TOP, not a dress. Take a step and all the world's a gynecologist...

I was a little surprised at that one coming from Korto. She's usually so good at "sexy, but not slutty."

However, with an even less varied collection (no pants, NO day looks), Chloe won Season 2.

One thing I will say about Korto's collection--I could see someone owning more than one piece from it, whereas, regarding Leanne's collection, how many noodles/petals/waves does a gal need?

Come on, poodle, Bianca was reality show GOLD on ANTM. And she is a gorgeous girl. I don't care how she is in private life, and I'm betting that you don't really know how she is in private life, either.

She did get the clunker dress of Korto's collection. We're lucky she had the sense to walk it very carefully to spare us the tootie. I for one am glad to see any of the ANTM girls getting work.


1. This one is just beautiful. Everthing is right from the fit (although I spy a little fit correction on the halter edge) to the color and silhouette. Great jewelry and accesories and lovely model.
2. This looks like a rework of the bridesmaid dress (like she re-used the skirt) I like the full sleeve but dislike the shoulder treatment. I agree about the color. Amanda would have been better in a green dress.
3. I like this one, but it is way too small for the model. It would have been cute on a wore petite girl. Maybe this one was a salute to Heidi. The model that's wearing it should have worn Amanda's dress or a long gown, because she is a good model.
4. Very pretty.
5. This was my favorite of the short dresses. Although I think she over used the dirndl skirt for a 10 piece collection. I agree that she should have used this print again in the collection somewhere, perhaps in a long gown too.


Korto's collection, unlike Leanne's, is actually wearable by real women. How the heck is one supposed to sit down (even in a limo) while worrying about the six thousand pleats that are covering your bum?

When I looked at the white pants/blouse ensemble I had the same thought-it would have been such a great take on traditional wedding attire.

I'm thinking that Korto's looks work best when she pairs a piece such as the white sleeveless blouse with that fabulous pleating with a very simple skirt or pant, or one piece with lots of volume with one that has a slimmer silhouette.

I did swoon over her first look-loved the color, and her model sold that look, working that fan!


Love Love Love this show...

Color, Hair, Music, Fans and Jewelery

Wonderful. . .

White Pants outfit is a Favorite! if I could I would wear everything...But too short Green Dress, maybe over pants?

That's funny, because the pants suit is my favorite piece of hers and one of my favorite in the collection, and when I saw it just now in TLo's screencaps, I thought "wow, that's really looks like Leanne's work." I'm surprised I didn't notice that before.

Korto's work also reminds me of Christian's (i.e. PPS).

I guess there's nothing wrong with being influenced by your peers. But it does make Leanne's originality of design stand out even more.

You're right. This dress seems to be a rework of the wedding dress and the upcoming one shoulder dress is a rework of her bridemaid dress, IMO.

For pity's sake people, please don't use Frankenstein on a blog about PR, it triggers my memory of Nina's comment about one of Kayne's dresses. The cherry on top is that both dresses were worn by Amanda.

If that is not enough, I also think of Rami's comment at the model casting that some of the models' walks were tragic. The girl who was walking at the time reminded me of ANTM's Lauren.

Note:: I am just kidding with the Frankenstein comment, (I learned my lesson from the ignorant slut comment).


Loved most of it, but I agree, it's a solid 2nd place, compared to the newer silhouettes of Leanne. Would love to see a jewelry collaboration between Korto and Malan. Woohoo--would put my birthday money to good use!

If history is any indication, we will never here of Korto again. Uli did a much more feminine, beautiful, colorful, and well-made collection that many thought should've won season 3, and when is the last time anyone heard of/from her? Leanne has a chance, Kenley has her niche, but Korto? Buh-bye, thanks for playing.


in some ways, i wonder how these would have looked on plus size (whatever that is) models - a couple of people have commented on how the fit looks a bit odd on these models, and i wonder if it would have looked awesome on women with real hips and real chests - actually celebrating their shapes instead of trying to disguise them, as so much 'plus size' fashion is about.

(that said, i think a couple of these pieces are a touch too short on people of any shape...)

overall, though...i appreciate leanne's collection more - although it has been criticised for being 'one note', it seems to be a cohesive artistic statement. i guess it depends on whether you appreciate fashion more as wearable pieces or as art. i like to wear art (in an odd amalgamation of the two propositions). but that's me. and not everyday. (probably not tomorrow, for example. i'm going to be very hungover.)


I have a question that I hope someone (TLo?)can answer: was the jewelry in Korto's collection designed by her? I think I read somewhere the she did design it (or make it?), but I can't find it. I think her jewelry is fabulous and I'd love to own some! Incorporating the jewelry into some of the dresses was a stroke of genius. And her white pants/top is breathtaking! LOVE HER!


I can't rip Korto's designs. I totally got her. :)

Such a fabulous 'show' ~ the models she chose, her styling; her music.
Absolutely Fabulous.

Congratulations Korto and may much success come your way. :)


I think the super-short green dress would have looked fantastic as a tunic with a slick little pair of pants. It's baffling as a dress. The other looks here (minus the beige) were fantastic. I adore her color sense and wish her great commercial success so that we can all enjoy a splash of her exuberant design.


My favorite of her collection was definitely the white pants outfit


The first time I saw the green blouse, I loved it. I wanted it. (I ignored the possibility I wouldn't have a clue as to how to iron the sleeves.)

Then I scrolled down. Dang.

Why'd she forget the skirt/slacks? IF she'd paired it with slacks (silouette she did for the olympic challenge, wow!) And it would look good on many different body types.

Too short, too tight= how many body types?


oceans and stars

Spot on, gentlemen. Spot on.

I'm not sure I get the judges' praise that Korto designs 'for every size' after seeing the first half of this collection. That white outfit, while being absolutely gorgeous, could not translate effectively to sizes over six. Same goes for the green minidress and the fabulous turquoise opener (at least, not without a lot of control top).


I LOVED Kortos collection. I thought that it was entirely possible to compare this with the Resort collection for Michael Kors, Oscar De La Renta or any number of famous designers. Obviously small issues of fit, such as the kelly green dress hips/length would be mitigated by professional seamstresses; it's not as if any of the afore-mentioned designers actually sew their own collections.

I think Korto has a brilliant future. And her styling was stunning. Among the best EVER on the show, including Laura's.


"We felt it was second place, but a very close second place." - i couldn't agree with you more, TLo. I loved most of the collection, but it just didn't have the innovation and impeccable construction on every piece that leanne's appeared to have (i may have to adjust that opinion when i see the close-ups posted....)

that opening dress was beautiful despite its simplicity. the combination of the color & the beads gave it the "wow" factor. i also was disappointed in the dress amanda wore -- such a waste of a gorgeous and talented model. as others have commented she would have been stunning in that emerald green color.

speaking of green, that dress was really badly done -- i remember when i first looked at the stills of the show i thought it was way too tight and was riding up on her -- hence the extreme shortness. had it fit better it would not have been quite so obscenely short.

Anonymous 12:52 said... "was the jewelry in Korto's collection designed by her? I think I read somewhere the she did design it (or make it?), but I can't find it." i recall her telling tim that she had done all of the beading & jewelry when he did her home visit.

LOVED the white pantsuit; really thought the print dress was cute, but thought it had a more casual vibe than the rest of the collection, along with being the only print. loved the print, but i don't think it worked with the collection. TLo's idea of putting it somewhere else like on a belt or trim on another piece would have made it more cohesive.

overall, i love korto's work -- i would probably be more likely to buy one of her dresses than leanne's, but i still think leanne was the clearly deserving winner.


(off topic) btw guys, saw your blog featured in the Boston Metro this morning! Congrats!


I'm hoping you can do a post about the models from the runway shows that are known from other reality shows - Amanda, Bianca, Dani, Shannon, etc. I think people would be really interested.


Loved the first look. Good piece to start off the collection.

The white pantsuit! Loved it! That was the look that I thought would have been praised the most.

The fifth look. Also great. I really liked the print.

Korto's whole presentation was the best IMHO.

*********************************
Oh please, don't be so grim!
(Big caveat: I don't work in the fashion industry, nor do I devote a lot of time to keeping up - PR is "play time." Some others here may know better.) But, I kind of doubt that being "heard of" via the Project Runway PR machine or in the Bryant Park tents is the only way to be successful and happy in fashion.

For some folks, showing up at events that make the Internet is a valid part of capitalizing on Project Runway in a thriving career plan. For others, it might be only for fun; for yet others it may be a desperate attempt to pump up faltering business efforts with publicity.

For all *I* know, Uli is happy as a clam, financially solid, and enjoying the hell out of designing for a small clientele/market somewhere off the radar.

Or even taking a year or two to recharge and explore side projects. Not everyone has all their eggs in the same basket. Case in point: Chloe, for one, made it plain that she wanted to win in order to invest in the business she had - that she didn't think the New York scene was for her.


Put me in the category of those who don't see this as a collection that would work for different (larger) sizes. Some of her work during the season probably worked better in that regard, especially the yellow Gristede's dress and the seatbelt coat (my two favorite things she made).

#1 is very form-fitting and bare and wouldn't look good on anyone over a size 6. #2, one of her least successful looks, has volume and would presumably cover up what larger women might want to cover up but all that volume would make anyone larger than Amanda look like a circus tent. #3 is another fugly look that would be hideous on anyone over a size 0. #4. the white pants and top is stunning and might work for larger sizes. But the top would be tricky on anyone with a larger bust. Any of the criticisms of Leanne's work as being inappropriate for larger sizes would apply here. #5. Probably her most forgiving look (and an adorable one to boot). But it is pretty bare and I don't know that many larger women would be comfortable showing that much skin nor would it look particularly good.

So all told I'm not seeing this collection as being flattering or appropriate for anyone over a size 6, maybe 8.


I actually love the taupe dress, but I agree that the color is absolutely wrong on Amanda. I love the billowy silhouette, though. It reminds me of Chloe's big pink jacket, which I also loved but was also in the wrong color.

I actually see a lot of similarities between Korto's collection and Chloe's. Mostly it's just sort of a vibe that I get, but I think it has something to do with the way they use silhouette's and the ability of their looks to work for different body types.

If history is any indication, we will never here of Korto again. Uli did a much more feminine, beautiful, colorful, and well-made collection that many thought should've won season 3, and when is the last time anyone heard of/from her? Leanne has a chance, Kenley has her niche, but Korto? Buh-bye, thanks for playing.


You have to consider the fact that out of all the designers out there, a random person isn't going to be able to name very many. That doesn't mean there aren't tons of people who have successful design careers. Some of the people from the show we still hear from (like say, Chris March) may be riding the coattails of Project Runway still, but what are they really designing? You see Sweet P all over the place, but do you know anything about her line? It's important not to conflate the two.

Further, I got the impression that Uli wasn't about the leave Miami. That's fine, but if you want to be a 'name' in the industry, you're going to have to move where the main business is - New York or LA, depending on your style. Uli is prolly camped out in Florida doing the resortwear she loves, just like Chloe decided to continue doing her own thing in Texas. Besides, out of EVERYBODY that has been on PR, who do we really still about? Christian, maybe, but he also just won...give it a year or two and see. Not everyone in the industry is going to be a superstar, and just being on Project Runway isn't going to guarantee you anything. In most cases, it's actually probably a hindrance to being taken seriously.

I kind of doubt that Korto is planning on moving, given that she has a husband and daughter in Little Rock and didn't win the prize money. That probably does not bode well for her, as Arkansas doesn't really seem to be the place to try to sell a style like that.


I agree that the judges would have piddled in their panties had Korto sent the white pants ensemble down the runway for the challenge.

winkleperi said..."Did anyone else feel like the white outfit, while stunning, had a bit of a Leanne feel to it?"

Yes, There was even more Leanne influence in that butt ugly wedding dress she sent down the runway for the F3 judging. I think this is another representation of how designers influence each other which I have no problem with. My immediate thought was that Korto was experimenting with structure when I saw the dress during Tim's visit, it was nowhere near as whickety-whacked as what she presented to the judges. Although it should be noted that Korto is no stranger to structure or embellishment, as evidenced by the Gristedes dress. The armchair psychologist in me wonders if Kenley inadvertently got into her head with her "classic doesn't put on a show comment". My theory is that she felt the need to show the judges that she can make interesting stuff, not that I think her stuff is uninteresting, but she went to far.


1, 4, and 5 are fab. The white pantsuit is my favorite.

Amanda's dress is the wrong color, shape and style. The green vajayjay dress is awful, too.

Does Korto have a line of jewelry? She should. It's absolutely beautiful.


Methinks you boys are just nitpicking to justify the bias win to Leanne aka Bland Petalia. Blah. Korto's collection was FAB-and coming from another woman with sexy curves, I can't wait to nab something from her collection! Go KORTO!


That could also be why DVF stole Korto's look for her Amex commercial, because she knows competition when she sees it. LOL.


BTW, I thought the white pants outfit was divine - from what I can see of it - the details getting lost in the pictures...Which brings me to a point:

I wish that ALL the designers would stop making outfits in black or white, unless or until the producers invest in lighting designers that will allow black or white outfits to be photographed properly (ie; with visible detail).

Black & white are the most difficult 'colors' to light and photograph (which is why you so rarely see anyone wearing them on TV).

--GothamTomato


I admit I am fairly obtuse about fashion, but, except for possibly the jewelry, I don't see the African influence in Korto's collection.


Okay, I have to say two more things, for all those who think Korto's looks wouldn't fit anyone over a size 6 or 8, you couldn't be more WRONG. Trust me. Just because a woman is a 10-14 or 16 doesn't mean she is all flabby and puckered. There are very womanly yet fit physiques that come in those sizes, flat tummies and all, and the shapes and silhouettes that Korto uses would flatter the curves just right. Don't knock what you don't know about kiddies. And judging the outfit based on what model was wearing it is a bit ridiculous to say the least. Only one model from the show was going to win the contract. Give me a break.


The only dress that bothered me was the green one that rode up on the model. It was definitely a fit issue. You can see it's meant to be a little longer, but yes, it's still a bit too short for my liking.


I also didn't think Korto's BP collection was as friendly for women of all sizes as her work during the regular season. I think that some of the designs from the finale show would fit a broader spectrum of women if the skirts were longer (duh, that is a typical adjustment from the runway to mass production) and the larger women who have to be well proportioned. One thing that Korto does that is quite interesting (and brilliant) is that she covers up the back in unfamiliar ways.

I and others have mentioned it before, it would have been fantastic if she made some plus sized clothes and cast some plus sized models, but Korto is not that daring.

Re Uli: I don't know if I made this up, but I thought she was designing (probably as an independent contractor) for private / store labels, like Macy's or Talbots for example.

I have a question that I hope someone (TLo?)can answer: was the jewelry in Korto's collection designed by her?


Yes, she designed the jewelry in her collection.

XO
TLo


From all the impressions that my Liberian friend left on me during our acquaintance, I totally relate Korto's color story (especially combined with silhouette)as significantly African. It might not be "in your face", but I believe it is there. I like this collection, but it doesn't really excite me.


Her collection was gorgeous. I love the vibrant colors and the jewelry.


That first dress is to die for.


Well, I'm a size 4, am I a real woman? Apparently not accodring to most of you.

Not every garment has to fit every size out there.

Do you people think that Oscar de la Renta, Karl Largerfeld or Carolina Herrera are sitting there making sure that every one of their garments fits all sizes?


KORTO ROCKS!!! I love those looks so much. She was ROBBED!


A well deserved second place.The white outfit is really stunning. It's sexy, elegant, ethnic, and feminine.

Why don't you give US a break? Sure, not every size 14 woman has a lot of rolls, but quite a lot of them do. People were just commenting that perhaps not all of her work is as universally-flattering as people make it out to be (and it's really not). Sheesh.

Besides, aren't you the one talking about things you don't know about? You claimed earlier DVF 'stole' Korto's dress for the commercial....uh, even though they were different dresses, DVF's came first (as did the commercial), and the print was DVF's as well. GIVE US A BREAK!#@$!$

Ugh.

THANK YOU. As a woman who is size 0 and has tried to gain weight her entire life, it is really rude and insulting to hear constant comments from other women about my eating habits, my supposed eating disorder, how I'm not a "real woman," etc.

If you are all happy with your bodies, regardless of size, that's fantastic. However, if you were truly happy on your own merits, you wouldn't need to tear thin women down to make yourselves feel better. If "real women" come in "all different sizes," as you claim, shouldn't that include all sizes below 10 as well as above it?


Well, we're all kind of sensitive on this issue, aren't we?
I've always thought it was odd that people refer to non-models as "real women," the corollary of which is that models aren't real women. But speaking on behalf of the size 4s, may I add that there are plenty of clothes that look really shitty on me, and I probably have to try on 20 pairs of pants in a variety of sizes before I find one that actually fits. I'm not complaining; I'm just sayin'.


EVERY woman is a REAL woman. Shame on those women who think otherwise.


Thank you again TLo for the outstanding photos - it is wonderful to really SEE the garments!

I love the print halter dress and I had no idea it had beads sewn onto it (don't really like them to be honest) until I saw these photos.


The green dress that was too short and loose in the middle seemed to be designed to fit a while woman with a flat ass. If it were bigger in the derriere it would not have ridden up when she walked.


I loved the blue/turquoise dress. Tho in some of those pictures her visible hip bones kind of scare me.

I also loved the white number with the pants (and the white dress covered later). And that model really worked it.

Didn't love the look Amanda is wearing. I like the pleating detail on the other dresses, but nothing really grabbed me.


yet another laura

I think the editing monkeys really screwed up this time.
I get that they wanted to create suspense and not give away the winner, but by hardly showing any of the criticism when it came to Korto's collection, and focussing on the problems in Leanne's, they didn't allow us viewers to really see where the judges were comming from in their decision. Thus the abundance of people screaming "racism" over at Bravo and other places.

That's why I am so happy about all these amazing pictures that allow us to finally really see the designs with all their details. It's the closest we can get to seeing them "in reality", and I really think that's what we would need to be able truly see all the highpoints and problems.

I agree that Korto's colours were beautiful and for the most part, her clothes were amazingly well fitted. I also loved her styling.

But yes, there were issues with some of her outfits. And they were, on the whole, not as innovative as Leanne's. Therefore I agree with the judges decision to reward the designer who was more fashion forward.

That doesn't mean I didn't love some of Korto's pieces- especially the first look and the pant suit here- it just means that I think from the point of view of who could bring more innovation, Leanne wins.

Regarding the "real women" discussion, being a 6'1, 130 pounds woman myself, I also don't like it when people imply that this makes me less of a "real woman". And I have to say, while the runways seem reserved for extra tall and skinny girls, clothes that I can afford on my meagre student budget most of the time are definitely not made for tall women. Arms and legs are almost always to short, or otherwise the whole garment is to wide.

I think we need to wait for the designers to produce something for a wider market before we claim that one of them can or can not design for different shapes. THe runway certainly doesn't offer a lot of different body types.


I thought that while Korto's collection was very cohesive and well thought-out, quite a few of her outfits looked overworked or needed a little tweaking. It was indeed a close second, although I felt that Leanne's win was well deserved. I'd love to see what she comes up with in the future, because her aesthetic is a good balance of ethnic and modern style, and her looks seem to be appropriate for the average woman. First dress: breathtaking fit! Ahhhmazing!! =)


I hated hated hated that weird short green dress but I simply ADORE that white pants outfit and loved the first simple blue dress, as well as the green halter. Sometimes simple is okay and I think in the case of the blue, it really was. She showed she could do simply very well and that she could tailor a garment very well.

I still feel Korto is much more varied than any of the others. If I would really love to own something of hers.


I get the feeling when people question whether "real women" could wear all of Korto's looks, they've got a narrow (ie White) view of what looks good.

Korto's got a curvy figure & upper arms and she looks fabulous in tight, sleeveless looks. Bootylicious, in fact!

Make some of those skirts longer and fix the fit and there ya go.


Anonymous said...I kind of doubt that Korto is planning on moving, given that she has a husband and daughter in Little Rock and didn't win the prize money. 2:27 PM

Perhaps it is wishful thinking, but I can see her picking up stakes and moving. Her daughter is not yet school age, so the timing is better now than later. I think she should consider Los Angeles and Miami. I ruled out my hometown Atlanta because the customer base is too tacky as evidenced by Mychael Knight and RHOA. In that same vein, she really should leave Arkansas to broaden her design aesthetic, when I went to Korto's web site, the taste level of the clothes posted there was only a few notches up from Knight's. Now I personally like plenty of clothes that Nina and Michael and laughably Heidi would proclaim as lacking in taste. I also ruled out NYC (unless she stormed into the city with serious financial backing) because Korto's clothes, personality and persona doesn't mesh with NYC's fashion climate and culture.


ooo one of korto's models was Bianca from antm - so that's what happens to reality show models


desertwind, why bring race into it? are you trying to offend people here? that wasn't cool at all. narrow minded people come in all colors. your post, for example is narrow minded. if that's your "feeling" then you're entitled to it, but why post that here?

please. race has nothing at all to do with it. let's stick to fashion and not make ugly statements, ok?


Beth B "Also blech? The model Bianca from ANTM in the short green dress. That girl is a bitch on heels."

agreed.
Another Laura - I never found her even a little pretty/attractive - huge wide mouth and buggy eyes.

elle b - thank you for youir post. Granted things have changed but I swear my skeleton is a size 12- 14. I have a large chest, but my frame is just large. I used to be trim and have a good shape, despite "starting off" large. Granted if you start off small like a 0-2, you probably are quite flabby/puffy or out of proportion if you are now in a 14. But if your ribs stick out and there is no flab or cellulite when you are a 14, then you can wear these clothes. (but when you start getting BIG for your frame, then you need clothes that accomodate lss than ideal figures.)


I can't help but wonder what 3 outfits Korto rejected in order to keep the snatch shot dress.


I detested the print sundress. It's the only print she had and is terribly disconcordant with the rest of the line.

Plus, it's an ugly print.


Gothamtomato,
ditto!


When I saw the collections a few weeks ago I thought Korto's white pantsuit was for a wedding challenge. I think it would have won and been a very modern send off to antiquated notions. It wouldn't surprise me if we see this concept appearing in weddings everywhere soon. Why say yes to a dress?

While I loved Leann I think Korto will evolve/develop a label that we will know and recognize for years to come.


I think it would have been really bold for Korto to have had different size models. Real shapes and figures....hell even send Mo'nique out there.
That girl could've walked the walk...of course some snoot would say that's not fashion, but honey big girls gotta look good too!


First look (dress) - gorge, if simple. Is this just a "she's a good tailor" item, though?

Second look, fug. What is it with these too-high waists? Same thing happened with Kenley and that ruffle collared green top with dark skirt, and with Michael Knight. Are these models just exceptionally long (short?) waisted? Everything rides too high and then shows too much below.

Third look, I couldn't get past the mean model with attitude from ANTM. Hated her here too. The slit was off center because the dress was too tight around the rear.

Fourth look, I didn't like the flap on the top of the white pants set. Otherwise, lovely.

Fifth look, cute, nice, but nothing special. Sweet P got attitude (and auf'd) for creating similar looks that were eminently wearable but showed nothing innovative. That halter style is as fashion 101 as it gets.


oh wait - are each of those necklaces sewn to the dresses? Blech!


The first dress was smashing. Very well made --really showed her craftsmanship. Many of the other dresses looked overworked. The green dress was way too short and I wondered if she bothered to fit it on anyone back at the studio.

What I liked was her use of color. Bold and vibrant, they were memorable. But I would have liked to see a greater range. It was evening, evening and evening.

I've looked through her website and have found myself thinking the same. Where are the clothes that excite? I'm just not sure.


I thought Korto should have won, Tim loved her silhouettes, Michael loved the long green halter dress with beads holding one side.
Her colors were beautiful and the use of jewelry was originally fabulous.
Leanne was ok but as la Nina said it all was the same. The flaps on everything started to get boring, something else would have broken the monotony. Kenleys was nice, but nothing was an original design.
Just saying.


nycowgril said..."The green dress is the one that had the "sexual" shaped snakeskin that Tim commented on-- she took out the insert and that's the reason the dress fits so poorly. I think she should have left it in and then we wouldn't have had actual crotch showing..."

Hey, thanks for pointing that out. Now it makes sense. Cheri


I really loved Korto's collection. In terms of putting on a 'show' she succeeded a head and shoulders above the rest, even if there wasn't much in way of innovation.

Does anyone know what the music she used is? I absolutely loved it.


Like most other who have posted, I agree with TLo's comments. What is it with the short-waisted dresses? The dresses are gorgeous, but the proportions are just wrong on the models. I'd even love to see them somewhere around knee-lenth with sort of a 50's-inspired silhouette. Korto is incredibly talented and has an interesting POV, however, I think she may need a bit more seasoning and experienced before she truly hits her stride. A few years down the road she could be another DvF.

- edina -


Considering how few designers can make a beautiful dress that has a great color and fits a woman's body well, apparently it is far more difficult than it appears.

I would have loved for Korto to use different size models as well but that would have been insane. Bryant Park is a lot of things but real woman friendly is not one of them, unless that woman has buckets of cash to spend.

I loved this collection when it came down the runway but looking back I don't have much to say. It's all lovely but most is unremarkable. It's not boring to look at, but a little boring design wise. I do love the styling and the print dress.


Please, give me a break with the thin woman crying about not being "real women." No one said that. What is being said is that less than 100% of the models at Bryant Park look like only 5% of the population of American women.

Designers can continue to ignore the 95% of us who are not a size 0 or 2 but I'm not going to shut up about it nor apologize for speaking about how absurd it is.


Well, in that case, you're an annoying aggrandized prick who feels entitled to the work of other people and isn't satisfied with what body conscious designers actually are doing for her.

If you don't like how 'absurd' people having the freedom to express their artistic abilities is, then vote with your dollars. Until then, there are plenty of name designers who sell beautiful flattering dresses; but I'm guessing you're too lazy to get off the couch and look.


TLo, thanks for the link to Korto at E! :) I loved her quiet dry humor. Glad she got the fan favorite.


I REALLY think the green dress Bianca is wearing looks like it just needed some pulling down. But I wasn't there, I don't know.

Still, if I could, I would yank that thing down to mid-thigh and watched that sexy mama work it.


In a lot of ways, Korto reminds me of Uli. Both make truly wearable clothes that women will want to have in their closets. I have no doubt that this isn't the last we'll see of Korto.


I know this is probably an unpopular opinion, but I actually think Korto and Kenley are a lot closer to each other than Korto is to Leanne. There's so much going on in this collection...beads, pleating, bright colors, one random print...and yet the designs are really not that innovative. I do absolutely adore the white pants and vest. But I think, when you compare it to the rest of her collection, it stands out in a "which one of these things is not like the others" kind of way. And I'm another person who's not completely buying into the "Korto dresses women of all sizes" mystique. So far I don't see a piece in her collection that is designed with a plus sized woman in mind. I do like where she was going with the infusion of her personal history and the earthy pallette.


I totally agreed with you two.

The too short green dress... Was that the dress where the models underwear showed?


Love Korto, the collection? Not as much. Actually, as TLo said, the fit and color on the first dress is so gorgeous that the simplicity is enhanced. Really great.

I didn't care for the dress that Korto whipped up and Tim seemed to really like "walking." Thanks, TLo, for telling me why. You're right on.

The too-short, apparently illfitting green dress suffered further from being worn by Bianca from ANTM, IMHO.

The last look was pretty, but nothing new, no?

I truly wish Korto the best. I'm sure she'll do well and she proved to herself and to her daughter that dreams come true with hard work and perseverance.


Does anyone know what the song was that Korto used? It was so fantastic.


Okay, I admit I don't know anything about designing and the only thing I know about fashion is what I like, so if this is a dumb question, ok...but what's with all this shiny fabric? Seriously. What is it, and do you more informed folks like it? I'm not feeling it... looks more like paper than fabric to me...

b


Wow! I Korto's EW interview she says she is thinking of relocating to not NY or LA, but PHILADEPHIA!

The green and white look to me like silk douppioni, the print looks like lawn, and I am not sure what the turquoise is. I thought it was a knit fabric like silk jersey when I saw it on the runway. I can see it is a woven now, but I'm not sure what it is some kind of medium weight plain weave matte silk? I think the fabrics she used are gorgeous and she used them for maxium impact.


Thanks sewing siren. Maybe in person I'd think they were fabulous. I'm happy to know she knew what she was doing because I really wasn't sure.

I loved the orverall look of Korto's collection, but I wholeheartedly agree that it was "second place, but a very close second place".

I have give BIG props for putting more "color" on the runway (and no, I'm not talking about the designs!). With all the media buzz about the lack of diversity at last year's Fashion Week, I've gotta give up for Korto for letting the sistas shine!


Is the too-short green dress the same one that had the 'snatch shot' snakeskin inset that Tim critiqued? If it is, and she took out the inset panel, I wonder if that then created the coochie-showing slit/gap in the front.


I agree... the green thing would be cute as a TOP (with a bit of reconstruction on the bottom half - even as a top it's too tight and poorly fitted). As a dress, it's hooker-short.


To Robin and others who've wondered about where Project Runway winners end up, etc.: there's an update on Chloe Dao in today's Houston Chronicle. Hope the link works.

So I guess no matter what we were going to get a snatch shot.


way to not talk about the fit issues with korto's line. tops were popping out everywhere on the runway!?!


check out Korto's TV guide interview:

http://video.tvguide.com/ID/1367883?autoplay=true


I liked that collection. IMO, it was more appealing than Leanne's and I was rooting both for Korto the woman and Korto the designer to win... even though I knew she wouldn't.

Her colors -- except for that dull beige gold -- are fabulous. What Rami didn't have, a sense of color, she has in spades. Some of her looks missed the mark - those green shorts reminded me of Michael Knight's collection, ouch! -- but all in all, it was beautiful, colourful and very wearable.

I wish she'd won. I would be much more interested in a Korto linen than a Leanne line. Oh well...
