Drama Between Althea and Irina on Project Runway

Do You Think Althea Copies Irina on Project Runway?

Part one of Project Runway's finale aired last night. Tim Gunn visited the three remaining designers' homes to check in on their collections. Amid all the creativity, there was continued tension between Irina and Althea. Ever since the famous locale challenge, Irina has claimed Althea copies her designs. And last night, you could see it in Irina's eyes (right), she was thinking it again. Do you think there's any truth to Irina's accusations or is she just being paranoid?

I believe it was Nick Verreos who said a few episodes back, that when there are designers working in such proximity to eachother there are bound to be some similarities in design and inspiration. So obviously this has happened on episodes past since he himself was a contestant. BTW: Team Carol Hannah!

I keep hoping that in the last episode, Tim Gunn says something to Irina about her rotten attitude and how it will hinder her future success. I think Althea and Carol Hannah seem like genuinely sweet people, and even though Irina is very talented, WHO would ever want to work with such an arrogant, self-centered twit?

No. Irina did not invent the oversized sweater. Her ego is getting in the way of her common sense.

I don't think she's copying at all. It's not as if Irina is the only person who ever thought of having an oversized sweater or using models with messy hair.

My theory is this: nobody on this show is particularly forward thinking anyway. They are all recycling ideas that have already been seen. Althea and Irina just happen to be inspired by the same aesthetics. I didn't see anything last night that I can't find in the store already. Yawn!

At first I didn't believe Althea was copying anything! But NOW, I'm starting to wonder about the whole situation. On the clip for next week's show, Tim is heard saying, regarding the makeup styling for the runway show, "Well, that sounds just like what Irina just told me [that she was doing.]" Hmmmmm But I still really like Althea... but I'm rooting for Carol Hannah most of all!

I always thought Althea was a better designer than Irina, anyway.

Fashionista made an excellent point about Irina's accusations: 'So Irina’s got issues with Althea about copying ideas, but was fully okay with using another artist’s renderings for her shirts without permission? Obviously, there were some lawyers involved with the show who were not so okay with this." Irina's copying was illegal. I know she was stopped but I refused to listen to any of her whining when she knowingly did it herself.
