Though over the weeks Gretchen Jones was seen slumping after her initial win the challenges, she picked up her performance in the finale where she came up with a bizarre, bohemian collection called ‘Hippie-Hooker’. The judges that included the guest judge Jessica Simpson, were seen all praises for the collection by the winner. Andy South and Mondo Guerra, who were the other two finalists failed to make an impact in the finale, though some fans felt that Mondo Guerra’s collection was better than Gretchen Jones.
Gretchen Jones walked away with the honors that included $100,000 from L’Oreal Paris and her own technology suite worth $50,000 from HP. The state of the art facility would allow Gretchen Jones to create her own line and she will also get a chance to sell it on Piperlime. Apart from this, Gretchen Jones will also have a spread in Marie Claire. The model who wore the collection by Gretchen Jones in the Project Runway finale, Millina Snow, also bagged a $25,000 prize and will be seen on the spread in Marie Claire.
