'Making The Cut': Fans pick their winner, but it's not the designer chosen by judges
This Belgian designer, at merely 24, was able to topple the competition with effortless ease. His raw creativity and willingness to push himself out of the comfort zone made him special on 'Making The Cut.' Sander Bos was flipping burgers before the Amazon-backed fashion competition series started and now he has the best in the fashion industry asking to make pieces for them. He was one of the top three and very deservedly so.
For the pop-up store collection, Sander took a different route. He decided to play with colors, ditch his distinctive style for the 12-14 look collection and it made for very "fast fashion-forward" pieces, Heidi Klum thought. Naomi Campbell was confident that Sander would grow up to be a good designer because he showed how he can be mature, sophisticated, and at the same time be in tune with the "street stuff" that young people love these days.
Joseph Altuzarra thought the custom-made experience (he had two tailors who did on-the-spot tailoring for customers) at Sander's store was unique and a good idea whereas Nicole Richie was left completely confused because his signature was completely missing from the new collection. But Sander was happy and confident about how his pop-up store line, House of Bos, turned out. "It's crazy to be 24-years-old, standing there, in my own pop-up store in New York with Naomi and Heidi arguing what they like the most," the designer said, laughing.
However, when the judges got down to deciding if he would make the cut for the finale runway show, they thought that even though tailoring was a great idea may be going on a different route didn't help him that much. "Joseph Altuzarra remarked that it was great that he had two people working on fitting but they were only tailoring T-shirts, which, for him, isn't "true tailoring" and therefore turned out to be a disconnect.
Sander was eliminated but fans thought he deserved to be in the finale and compete with Esther Perbandt. Some even wrote he deserved to win the show as well.
"Sander is the winner of #makingthecut and you can’t tell me different," a viewer shared, while another wrote: "That’s bullshit. Sander has been consistently thorough and proved his versatility. #makingthecut."
"The finale collections were so underwhelming, so wish Sander could have shown with his colorful and vibrant collection #makingthecut," a fan expressed. "Wow Sander was 1000x better than Johnny bland and boring, been there done that style #makingthecut it should of been Esther vs Sander!!!," another pointed out.
