And the Winner is....
Note to Chloe Dao:
You were overwhelmingly the winner of the second Fashion Noted Poll, as our favorite winner of Project Runway. Your designs showed that you understand women and how they like to dress. Each seam and silhouette of your designs accentuated the beauty of a woman's body and each design looked like they could be worn by real women. I am not going to lie to you-- I had a hard time choosing between you and Daniel Vosovic, especially after the final collections were shown. However, I was pleased when you won, and out of all the Project Runway winners, you are my favorite. After Runway you continued selling your designs at your Houston Boutique, Lot 8, and debuted a collection on QVC. I am not a regular patron of either of these retail outlets, maybe you can consider selling some of your garments at Bloomingdales? I know I would love a Chloe Dao dress, and I am sure many of the Fashion Noted readers would as well. Congrats on winning the poll, you are in the elite company of Gwyneth Paltrow as a Fashion Noted Poll winner, and who can complain about that?
Note to Readers:
Thank you for voting on the poll, and in honor of our winner, I am going to post a few pics of some of Chloe's designs. Also, my next post will be about the Footwear Fashion I found on my recent trip to Kentucky, and I'm just going to say you should be excited. Also, I created an email account firstname.lastname@example.org for your questions, comments, concerns, or anything else you would like to share with me! Have a good day, and wear something today that brings a smile to your face. Fashion is supposed to be fun.
This dress and coat combo, reminded me of a Balenciaga design with its volume. It is very high fashion and very well tailored.
This gold baby doll dress was the last minute addition to the collection, but it fit in seamlessly. I love the pockets.
One of Chloe's strengths was adding interesting details to her designs. The back of this dress from her Runway collection was definitely noteworthy.
