I am not a fashion expert by any stretch, but I seem to recall that in previous seasons most of the looks for the runway show had colors and patterns that didn't necessarily match perfectly, but that went well together--a collection, if you will. For example, most of Jay's clothes were in muted rusts, olives, oily blues, and subdued golds; Mondo had black and white with a little pink and a little turquoise; Leanne was all cream, aqua, and beige; and Suede was white, pink, grey, and sky blue.
Anya's collection had similar silhouettes (if you can refer to a billowing cloud of fabric as a silhouette) and necklines (if you can refer to something so deeply cut the model needs to get a Brazilian beforehand as a neckline), but the fabrics clashed horribly with one another. She could have worked with black and white, she could have used the batiks, she could have stuck to neutrals, she could have used the black and gold stripes, or she could have used that ghastly turquoise and brown and gold fabric that gave her size 0 model a size 16 ass.
BUT NOT ALL OF THEM ALL TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME!!!11!!!!!!1
It looked to me like she went into the fabric store, saw a bolt of something she liked, and bought 5 yards of it without considering how it would look with the rest of the collection, and the result was a collective eyesore.
Also, the fact that all of her stuff was SO easy to make! How did the judges not think that this was a slap in the face of the other designers who spent weeks (or months, or years) planning their designs, carefully selecting the right fabric, sewing, ripping seams, re-sewing, chucking the whole thing in the trash, and starting over again to produce something with just the right look?
The other designers had missteps, and all of them looked like they were showing two collections at the same time, but all of them had clearly found ideas that they were in love with and they tried to bring to fruition. Anya looks like she defaulted to what she always does, and she should never have won.
