The guest judge for the Finale was Will & Grace star Debra Messing.
Concerning Daniel's collection, the look the judges liked the best was the 13th look Daniel created only 2 days before Fashion Week.
The designers had to create a 13th look for their collection. For that, they were given an "extra pair of hands", by choosing one eliminated designer to help them. Their choices were:
- Daniel V.: Nick
- Santino: Andrae
- Chloe: Diana
Andre:(about the 13th look, 2nd day): It's gonna be a dress, or some permutation there of.
Heidi: Chloe, congratulations!
Chloe: Are you serious?
Chloe: I'm the winner of Project Runway! Oh, my god! I am a real designer!
Kara Janx also showed at Fashion Week, since the TV audience hadn't yet seen the episode with her elimination, and the producers wanted the identity of the final three to remain a surprise until the actual screening of the semi-finals was aired.
Tim says in his blog that Daniel's technical assistant Nick and some Parsons student dressers were all sewing elements of his collection backstage at Bryant Park.
Chloe Dao was the winner of Project Runway, season 2. Her collection won for being not only stylish but woman-friendly, and she had a sense of knowing about fashion not only as an art but as a business.
