I did think Michelle's collection was the best of the 3. I definitely liked many of her pieces, although I didn't like the bleeding heart sweater as much as Nina.
I think Stanley might've gotten too caught up in producing a collection vs determining an artistic point of view. I knew he lost when he couldn't explain his collection's 'point of view'. I do think he improved his looks quite a bit after the 1st critique, but he really didn't have time to re-look with a super critical eye and entirely re-do outfits. He could only re-work what he had.
Patricia definitely has a point of view. For the mass markets, I don't think 'tribal' will go a long way in certain areas of the US/world. I did like some of her outfits more than others.
