Melissa is getting nervous backstage. She comes out and thanks her family and Nick for being there. She says that collection is an exploration of death to life. Her first look is the white jacket and it's pretty special. All of this stuff makes sense and it looks like she found more than a few ways to infuse color into the whole thing. Backstage, she tells Tim that this is the best day of her life. Some of the dresses are just gorgeous. Sexy but a little relaxed. Her white dress comes out and it takes the model like a month or two to make it down the runway. Following that is the orange dress. It has one of her gravity-defying necklines and is really gorgeous. When she comes out for her bow, Nick mouths, "It was so good," to her and I just find that touching. Shit, y'all, something about this year and how worked up everyone is has made me a little choked up for this whole thing. It's just a big deal when you know how solitary a lot of this work is but how you need outside approval for it to really fly. I don't know. It's a big moment for them.
Dmitry comes out and we see his group of friends smiling and clapping and taking pictures. He says that he was inspired by organic architecture. He hopes that the audience will like it as much as he does. His show starts and we see a lot of geometrical shapes inserted into the clothing. It is all made beautifully and it is cohesive. Backstage, Tim and Dmitry discuss that there is no question about the cohesion of the collection. All of the girls have ponytails, which seems like a smart idea. Keeps it young. His final dress is this evening gown with a feathered skirt. I guess no individual looks are getting applause anymore. It used to seem like that would happen once or twice a season.
Fabio interviews that he is feeling nothing but positivity before he goes out to speak. His family and beau look so happy for him. He tells the audience that he decided to name is collection Cosmic Tribalism, which is a reflection on his heritage. The girls start coming out and I just think it looks incredible. Ew, there's Josh McKinley. Fucker. I mean, it looks like he really did up the sophistication with these looks. Pastels and uniforms, that's what I see here. Tim tells him backstage that it's all very beautiful. Fabio says that he feels very blessed to have been able to show at Fashion Week. After the show, he comes out for his bow and maybe it's because of his sweet nature but it seems like he gets the most rousing applause.
