The second designer's collection to make an appearance on the Project Runway FINALE SHOW was Cornelius Ortiz. Again just a guess, but if you are one to pay close attention to details...you would know Cornelius wears an X on the back of his jean jacket when he is designing his pieces on the show.
Cornelius is known for creating designs that are inspired by geographic and architectural landscapes...he likes to use and create with shapes. We see him mixing prints, textures and patterns when designing his garments and he is definatly one of the standout designer on the show, as each of his pieces are unique and not something one has seen before. He has his signature look and aesthetic and that is creating textile print fabrication fusions. The collection he brought to the Finale Show was beautiful, classic, functional, with his own little twist of fun by adding shapes and different textures to a simple gray backdrop!
X-MARKS THE SPOT and we are pretty certain this is Cornelius Ortiz's collection!
