Project Runway Philippines 3: and then there were four

i don't know much about fashion but i would like to think i know what looks good when i see it. 

there is obviously an alliance among Milka Redoble,  Cheetah Rivera and Amor Albano, the three, who to my mind deserve to go head-to-head in the finals.

Amor, is very naive and has a tendency to be literal in her translation of certain homework assignments but that could be due to the fact that she comes from the province and everything she sees here in Manila is so new to her. she definitely has talent. and to think she wanted to go home and give it all up so early in the competition.  so glad she stayed.

Cheetah is very avant garde.  her work is very textured and unique,for lack of a better term. she thinks out of the box.  through her experiments, her pieces stand out and her risks produce really fabulous results.  it is amazing that she comes up with these masterpieces in such a short amount of time.

Milka definitely has gone through a lot of ups and downs throughout the competition.  having won the first challenge, evidently she is pressured to do good.  her story is certainly one of hits and misses but hers is classic.she is very technical and she knows how to make a woman look sexy and beautiful without being too vulgar.

while he's come a long way from designing gowns from his hometown in Camarines Sur, i don't particularly like Nel. as Rajo Laurel said, you can practice skill, you can improve on finish but you can learn taste.  i mean, the placing of that thing at the back, very tacky for me. he does show a lot of potential, as his designs have improved.  he has proved to the judges that he can be the dark horse of this competition.

like i said, i don't know much about fashion. i can be a bit of a mess myself.  i cannot wait to see what these four have come up with for their collections for the finale.  i predict it will be a blast.
