your dress is so beautiful. I love the flowers in the middle.

So THAT's how they were preserved so nicely! Thanks for the explanation, haha.

if your interested in sharing pageant videos, let me know. i have lots of miss universe's (some in the 60's, 70's, 80, 84, 86-present), some miss worlds, a couple of miss internationals, and many others. i haven't run into that many people who love it as much as i do. i would love to hear miss venezuela stories. when you said your sister was a former miss venezuela and i read that you have designed something for sushmita, i started to think you were either minorka's or denyse's brother. LOL. hope to hear from you. between pageants, fidm, sasha cohen and fishtail skirts, we have lots to talk about. email me at happypasadena@hotmail.com

These photos are soooo cool ;)

It's great to see what is behind the scenes of the show.

Marley Gibson said...

I think someone needs to give Michael Kors a dictionary and read the definition of "vulgar" to him as it certainly doesn't apply to any of your designs. He's insane.

Your leaf dress was...amazing. I hope you make it to Fashion Week!!

Marley = )

Cute pic of you guys!!!

Nick - you rock!

DrZins said...

Nick, you are absolutely my favorite designer!!!!!

darcyc said...

You are amazing--your designs are just beautiful and I can't wait to see you in the final three...good luck!!!

turtleriot said...

1)Michael Kors talks out of his ass

2)you got robbed so many times during this season, it isnt funny

3)What was vulgar about that flower dress?

4)a whole lot of us are rooting for you to "make" it to Fashion Week. Even tho it has already happened

KiWi said...

I thought that your dress, Dan's and Chloe's were the top 3...easily. And if there is any good taste left in this world, that's the three who will end up at fashion week.

Maria said...

Nicolaki, your dress was the prettiest!

Bonnie said...

This by far was my favorite episode. And I don't care what the judges said -- I LOVED your dress!!!

David said...

Nick/David -
Check your email. Diablo Ballet needs/wants you.

Best,

hilaryloren said...

I loved your hot little banana leaf dress even though that was the dumbest challange to date. I don't know what MK was blathering on about it being vulgar, WHATEVER. I love all your sexy numbers & you had me from the muslin suit w/ that fab feather! If you don't make it to fashion week I'll throw a tantrum to put any of Santino's runway hissy fits to shame! Good Luck sweetie :)

Lori said...

Nick, you are an amazing designer. You are my favorite on Project Runway. I live in Canada and the episodes are behind the States. I just saw the episode with Nicki Hilton. I loved the dress you made for her.

Good luck Nick! I hope you make it to fashion week because you deserve to be the winner!

Monica said...

I LOVE YOU NICK! You're so talented and I heard a rumor you're not in the Top 3 but that cannot be true! You're too talented!

Marj said...

Nick, i am so sorry that you were cut, i really loved your dresses and your personality will get you far. good luck!

Katie Van Horn said...

NICK! I just watched the designer makeover challenge, and I am SO LIVID that they picked Santino over you. That is a huge mistake on their part. You are so talented, and I hope to be able to buy your line one day!

Much love,

NICK you were ROBBED> We are so unhappy. We think this just sucks. We want to see you at Fashion Week :o( You did really well. We think your mumma and dad should be TOTALLY proud. Santino is freaking psych-case.

Jennie said...

oh, Nick... I just died a little inside & cried a lot on the outside. You are still my favorite!!!

Anonymous said...

Aw! I was so upset after seeing you get kicked off tonight. Honestly, I think you should have stayed.
Your stuff is awesome and you'll become big either way.

Katie said...

Nick
You were my favorite designer from the first show. Project Runway just won't be as good as it was without you. I wish you the best and I know you'll go far!

Anonymous said...

I'm just stunned that Santino was picked over you. I can not think of one valid reason why he continues to survive. Perhaps the network is concerned about ratings. I suppose that thought is more comforting for me as I'm still in shock that the unfinished garmet won over yours. For all the reasons that many other designers have been "auf weidersened" Santino seems to elude it. Amazing. Nick I would be more then happy to purchase clothing from you! Keep doing what your doing -- I love your work! And the simple fact that your work has appeared at the SAG awards speaks volumes!

Faith said...

Nick - You're the best :) Great success is already in your hands! We love you ^_^

Christie said...

I cant believe they picked Santino over you! Didn't they kick Zulema for poor construction and hmm Santnios...WASNT EVEN FINISHED. What hypocrites.

Anonymous said...

Noooooooo!

I can't believe what just happened. There's no way your piece should have been ranked behind that tacky, glued-together, sleeve-falling-off jumpsuit! The only word to describe the judging tonight is "whickety-whack".

All the best with your future endeavors. Your presence on Project Runway will be missed.

Anonymous said...

i just witnessed the most depressing episode of project runway ever. i thought the one when daniel v. said he was gay was sad because it ruined my chances of making beautiful babies with him, but this, this is just tragic. you are by far my favorite designer. santino is a jerk and he looks like a greasy pirate who needs to get over the fact that he's going bald and just get rid of the ponytail. you're incredible and i know you'll be the next big thing.

aeillill said...

oh nick....

i've never cried during reality television before, but i did tonight, you were robbbed, you made an outfit that was atleast wearable Kara looked terrified in her 70's j-lo jumpsuit.

Even though you didn't make it to fashion week, I know you'll go on to make many incredible and wonderful things, and if you ever decide to put out a plus sized clothing line i will save every penny i've ever earned and buy every beautiful thing I know you'll come out with

Anonymous said...

I thought it was BS that you got cut and santino stayed in. BS! Go NICK! At least you had an outfit at the SAG awards where was Santino? EXACTLY!!!

Anonymous said...

NO! Nick, I can't believe you won't be at Fashion Week! You are still my favorite and definitely should have been top 3!

Anonymous said...

you've been robbed!!! this was absolutely the most ridiculous decision the judges could have possibly come to. your menswear design was well-done, an innovative take on the traditional suit. absolutely wearable, absolutely lush--a much-needed change in paradigm for men's clothing. the only reason that santino isn't out is because the producers know that he's inevitably going to say something stupid/sensationalist/etc. they'd rather see him make an idiot of himself to garner higher ratings than actually show designers who know what they're doing. oh, and kara's design was absolutely fabulous (sarcasm here). definitely innovative, definitely something we've never seen santino in before: we've never seen him in layers, never seen him in that horrific thrift-store look, etc., etc.

Anna said...

NICK!
so i just watched the 10th episode. i cried. i shed a tear. i'm genuinely soooo upset that you are gone!!!! you were my absolute favorite from the very beginning and i was soo sure you were going to be in the top 3 for the olympus fashion week and then WIN the whole thing. Santino's full of crap and his designs are way out there and i don't know who would ever wear them. he may have his own vision, but your vision and your ideas are just soo much better! i admire all the work you've done on project runway, as well as nikolaki--the dresses are beautiful! best of luck with everything you do!!!

Anonymous said...

Nick I just found your blog, and now it's completely distracting me from doing my homework, naughty! anyway I'm a freshman in college at the university of michigan and I love you, in a strictly platonic way. I think your work is amazing and I wish I could model it myself

tonights episode was terrible. I was really dissapointed in Santino's behavior but obviously you don't need project runway to suceed. If I wasn't a stereotypically broke college student I would beg you to design an entire line for me this summer. Love your work good luck post PR!

Tom M. said...

Just want you to know Nick that, while I didn't feel this was one of your best deisgns, the idea I agreed with. And even if not your strongest, they still let one of the best designers go (and boy was there a better candidate for the cutting room floor)!

jChang said...

My friends and I have a weekly Project Runway get together where we ALWAYS bake things to make it a tad bit more gay. We were all soooo disappointed when Heidi gave you her Auf Weidersen! Ugh, I hope you become successful in the future, and maybe I'll have you design one of my concert outfits when I become a massive popstar! Love you!

R24 said...

Nina, Michael Kors and Heidi Klum - YOU ARE OUT!!!

What a f*ck%$# MESS of tonight's episode!!
The judges sent Nick home when it came down to Nick and Santino were the last two standing.
Big Ole Mess has been a longtime fan of this show. However, tonight was a BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG OLE MESS!!!!!!!!!
Santino designed a jumpsuit for crying out loud. One that made Kara look like a sack of potatoes. She looked like a she was constricted and could not move. Oh, wait. SHE COULDN'T!! In fact, when she did move her left sleeve popped off and it barely stayed on. Kara, you should have spoken up more. Santino is LUCKY as hell to STILL be in the competition. His attitude and his last few attempts at fashion COMPLETELY SUCK!! The fact that the guest judge loved that fugly ass jumpsuit is embarrassing. Shout out to Nick.....you took a risk and at least the outfit you made for Daniel was presentable and nothing fell off.
Yup....it is a reality show but screw the ratings!! IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN TIME TO GO FOR SANTINO!!

Note to Nina, Michael Kors and Heidi Klum...........YOU HAVE TO GOT TO SEND SANTINO PACKING!! He is killing the show and destroying the other contestants.

Nick.....BIG OLE MESS loves you and we say that you are going to come out of the show smelling like roses. You are truly talented, genuine and well grounded. The suit you made for Daniel was great. We hate that the judges did what they did. You were our pick for the final 3. The show without you is just NOT THE SAME!!! The judges are a mess for sending Santino home and yes WE ARE PISSED OFF!!

Hopefully we will meet you one day so you can sign our "Project Runway Barbie"

FOREVER A NICK FAN!!!

ImSoFantastical said...

hmm wrong entry for this i guess lol. but i just have to say i LOVE you. and im freaking pissed you went home (damn santino) ! i loved all your stuff and when u left the show first thing i did was check for a website or something..wow.. kinda wierd leaving YOU a comment.. DAMN the one time i get to leave someone impportant a comment and i have NOTHING interesting or witty or important to say.. figures...-_-

jesterrr said...

nick, i'm sure you already know considering the twenty million comments you've already received, but the entire project runway community is FUHREAKING OUT. we are all a bunch of depressed angry weirdos... i miss you already :(.

i had the notion you were going to be out, but not because i didn't like your design (i actually said when daniel came down the runway, "oooh, sexay!"), but only because i'm good at spotting the tricks of reality tv. that didn't stop me from crying, though...

you are AMAZING. it can't be said enough, honestly. you are such a great designer with such a fun/cute personality, and i really will miss you... well, as a reality tv personality, of course. i don't care what they say about you- every design of yours they were iffy on i loved, and every design they loved i love. you've got real talent, and i can't wait 'til you've continued putting it to work.

you're going somewhere man, you're going somewhere!!

all my fangirl love,
jess

Lorenzo said...

I was in tears when they aufed you. You're very talented and deserved to stay. I understand going for ratings (I don't even want to mention his name here; not worth it) but I think the producers are being dishonest and disrespecful. As a viewer, I expect a little more than that. At some point last season, I told a friend of mine that what I liked most about this particular reality show was that, unlike the others, talent was the main force. I was wrong. Congratulations, Nick! Your mother is right; you did more than well, you did fabulously. Good luck, handsome!

Genevieve & Roger said...

Nick ... we really loved your designs and your work ethic! We were horrified by the loss tonight! You should have been "in"! We loved your sign-off and think that your parents really must be and should be proud.

Keep designing, please!

Darling Nick---
I just want you to know how many people out there adore not only your designs, but your vivaciousness, your silly-ness, and your integrity. Your clothes are both elegant and sassy---the best mix out there in my opinion. I can't wait to see what is next for Nikolaki...and I hope that at this time next year Nikolaki will have an inpendent show for fashion week. I, for one, can't even continue to watch the show without you on it. Please keep doin what you've been doin...

Nick-

I can't believe they sent you home instead of Santino- he so deserved to go- that jumpsuit was TERRIBLE!!!

Anyway, you don't need Project Runway to rule the world- you'll do just fine on your own!!!

Good luck and can't wait to see more of your designs!

Liz said...

its a tragedy! so sad that you're out. :( i was pulling for you, danny v and chloe as my top 3. double sadness. :(

Anonymous said...

nick, i wanted to tell you that tonight my daughter, chloe (who is 9 going on 25) and i were watching project runway together. she became a bonafide fan tonight, and not only that, but watching all you designers "inspired" (her word) her to begin to design an outfit of her own right then and there! she sat "daniel-style" on the floor cutting and sewing a couple of flannel baby blankets to make a skirt and top. unfortunately, her seams held together about as well as santino's did tonight on that gawd-awful jumpsuit he made for poor kara. you looked smashing in your pinstripes, btw! handsome, handsome!

i will certainly miss you on the show. you deserved to be in the top three. i wish you all the best.

Anonymous said...

We love you, Nick! It's reality TV and the best person doesn't win! It's who the producers want to be on the show. The show has lost all credibility by allowing Santino to edge by week after week. This is a ratings contest and not a designers contest.

Oksana said...

I cried when you left =(

you were ... amazing.

we will all miss you on the next PR episodes.

I hope you are doing well and I just cannot wait to see more of your work. God Bless.

Nick - I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE you on the show! You are by far my favorite!! I'm sorry that you didn't make it to fashion week, but I hope that being on the show will help make your dreams all come true! I only with I could afford your designs ;)

Nick! I litterally screamed so loud my neighbors thought I was being murdered or something. I know the show was a long time ago for you now and your probably way over it but..god.....I still haven't been able to sleep!

I wrote bravo and informed them how disappointed I was with their obviously UNFAIR show.

Nick --- you rock! I'm a new fan to PR and you have been my favorite from DAY 1 -- I'm so glad that I was able to find your site. I know there's MUCH more to come from you!

I was sooo disappointed when you were finished with the show. I so wanted you to continue to fashion week. I'm sure its been over for you for a while now, and I know your getting a lot of comments now, but I hope you know that there are millions of your fans out there!

I have never yelled at my TV as loudly as I did tonight!

I seriously think you ROCK!

Nick, I heart you and your designs. You and Daniel V have been my favorites since the very beginning, and I was looking forward to seeing your line at Olympus Fashion Week.

It's utter crap that they eliminated you. I'm so sorry, but I do know you're moving on to bigger, and MUCH BETTER things...you're getting to be very well known in the design industry!

The best of luck to you in your career, I hope that all goes well darling.

Nick,
I loved the way your suit looked on Daniel. I can't believe you're the one to go. I can't watch this show anymore. I was watching because of you and your designs. I'm always looking out for you when I go to Rite Aid on 7th & Hope and when I walk past FIDM. Maybe I'll get lucky one day. I'm confident you will go far in your career.

Nick! Me and my friends literally shed some tears when you were "auffed". It's so unfair, you have been so consistent in your amazing designs that a collection from you at fashion week would have been just mind-blowing. best of luck. you seem to be doing great anyways--love the brenda strong dress.

Serge & Bacchus said...

NICK!!! I am so fucking heartbroken. You deserved to be in the final three. But hey, you're designing dresses for starlet, while Santino's probably still designing shit for all his tweeker friends in hollywood.

You'll always be the winner in my eyes baby.

We love how you mentioned that you look like a glamorous flight attendant for british airways because me and my friends are all flight attendants! LOL....

If you ever fly on US Airways and we see you in coach, we'll try and get you upgraded! You are truly fabulous!


We know you are going to be very successful in the future.

We love the dress that you made for Brenda at the SAG awards and we love you!!!

May success, happiness, prosperity, love and good luck follow you!!!!

Lots of Love,

Nick- I just thought I would write and show my support, you are strong and a great designer. I have a friend who is such a big fan of you and your designs, she cried when you were voted off. She was really rooting for you like you wouldn't believe. I have to say you handled yourself great and can see great things for you after Project Runway. Keep your dream alive and never give up.

Still heartbroken that I won't see your designs this year at FashionWeek but I think in a lot of ways it can be better this way - to someday make it to the top your way rather than "the show" way because I would never want you to be branded "the project runway" person because you are so much more than that.

Love, one of the gazillion fans of you as a designer and as a person -

Thank you! and Wishing you the best.

Nick, I just want to say that from the beginning you were my favorite. You have the ability to drape beautifully, a good eye for proportion and, well, you are adorable! You've made me laugh and last night you made me cry. You will be missed from this show. You have a lot of fans. I just so wish you were on the East Coast as I would seriously commission you to make a gowns for me for several upcoming events.

Nick, you are a darling man and talented designer. I hope this show takes your career even farther.

Nick!
Adding to the "you were robbed" sentiment, I was so sorry to see you "aufed". Totally unfair. The wonderful thing, however, is that we got to see you and your designs and anyone with half a brain can see how talented you are. Oh, and a good person to boot. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you.

Love from Washington, DC

Karen said...

Nick;

You ARE wonderful and can be completely proud of your designs and your conduct on Project Runway. Life is much bigger than a television show.

I got teary when you said "That's a good boy" - Yes, I'm thinking that your parents are busting with pride for you. And by the way I loved the suit you made! Very metrosexual-chic, perfect for Daniel, in my book. He looked great in it.

Kara looked like a mushroom in hers. Enough said (and she's a beautiful woman!).

I can't wait to see more from you. God bless.

Karen

Sam said...

I know everybody else is saying it, but I can't help myself. YOU WERE ROBBED! I'm a grown man, but I screamed like a girl when Heidi said you were out. Obviously, you are the Austin Scarlett of season 2 - the talented designer who is sacrificed so the drama queen hack can rant and rave during fashion week. I don't know if I can watch anymore. You were my favorite from the first episode. I hope this exposure has given your career a huge boost and good luck!

Anonymous said...

Sigh. You were my favorite designer on the show and I am very sad that Santino is still there and you aren't!
There are plenty of us out here who think you are an exceptional designer. Honey, don't say things like "maybe someday I will make to fashion week"...because you WILL! Just believe.
Love ya!

AshleyDee said...

Seriously...who wears jumpsuits?!

You're still my favorite designer, and I'm heartbroken you aren't going to be in the final three. I teared up. Honestly.

I love you Nick! Good luck to you in the future...you're too fabulous not to succeed.

voxqueror said...

Nick...a little part of me died when Heidi auf-ed you yesterday. I've always loved what you've designed (including the "vulgar" leaf dress, which I thought was really fantastic looking). Needless to say, you are going on to do great things as your SAG Awards dress clearly indicates. I'll take slightly puckered seams over a self-destructing outfit any day of the week...

Mia said...

Nick -

Add me to the people who cried when you were cut... it's just unbelievable. You were my favorite from day one. I think we will be seeing much more of you in the future. You are immensely talented and clearly so many people are aware of this because of Project Runway. You'll make it to NY fashion week... I have no doubt. Good luck!!

Anonymous said...

Nick, I was so very sad to see the episode last night. I have absolutely loved your designs on the show...beautiful designs mirroring a beautiful soul. I wish you all the best, and I know you'll make it. You don't compromise who you are or how you feel, and that's just amazing.

Honestly, at least you didn't make a jumpsuit *snort*.

I'm lovin' you far too much for someone who's a ll-ll-ll-lesbian.

That episode was whickety whack to say in the least. I have a big group of people who come over for PR night every wednesday and last night we all had to drink our sorrows away. We thouhgt you'd be at fashion week for sure! The only thing remotely satifying about last nights episode was when Jay said he hopes Santino gets canned right to his face! Simply classic!!

lee-romero said...

Nick, I have to say I have NEVER cried while watching an episode of Project Runway. But I cried my eyes out when you were voted off. I kept yelling for Santino to go...

I'm ready to throw all my Michael Kors clothing in the trash bin!

Anyway, keep you chin up, you are an incredible designer. I loved everything you designed, even if the judges didn't.

Good luck to you!

ERRONEOUS! said...

I cried when you were auf'ed and during your interview when you talked about your parents, who no doubt are extremely proud of you, but I am going to put my personal feelings aside because I am trying to take a cold, hard, just-the-facts look at the travesty that was last night's show.

So let's just take an objective look at last night's judging, shall we? What did the judges appear to be basing their decisions on?
1) Does the "new look" look good on the designer?
2) Does the "new look" seem to be something the designer would wear, feels confident and comfortable in, looks pleased to be wearing, but is also somehow BETTER or IMPROVED over what their normal look is like?
3) Is the garment aesthetically pleasing/well executed?
4) Is the designer a good designer in general (I believe the judges always carry over their impressions from previous challenges and have formed general impressions of whether they think the designer is talented or not).

Okay, now let's answer those questions for both Nick and Santino's creations last night:

Kara's Makeover
1) NO! Stupid-ass, whickety whack jumpsuit. Judges made disparaging remarks about who wears a jumpsuit. No judge seemed to think the jumpsuit was a good look.
2) NO! It gave Kara a wedgie/camel toe and was too tight on her ass, which made her extremely self-conscious about showing her ass, which the judges even noted. Not really in keeping with Kara's usual look and certainly not a "better" look over what Kara normally wears.
3) RESOUNDING NO! She could not move in it, it fell apart, whickety whack crap was glued on. Sucked ass.
4) Not really. Santino's been hit or miss all along. He has won two challenges, but he's been on the chopping block much more than that. As Tim Gunn has said, maybe adding all that trim hides mediocre talent in terms of garment construction.

Daniel's makeover
1) Yes. Judges don't say it, but Daniel looks good.
2) Yes. Judges don't ask Daniel if he likes it, or feels comfortable in it (although they did ask that question of many of the other designers), but he does appear to feel comfortable in it and confident and it is a more polished version of what he would normally wear, but also, "still Daniel."
3) No. The judges were clear that they thought the choice of fabric was wrong and that the no pockets, no buttons was a problem. Whatever. Apparently they are able to ignore the fact that this challenge required SOME designers to create menswear for the first time while other people (Santino) got to create womenswear (as usual) for a tall, slender woman (as usual) and failed at is miserably (as usual, with a few exceptions, see above).
4) Yes. Until the flower garment, everything Nick has designed has been well-received by the judges. That's because everything he's done has been well-made, beautiful, creative, and if not a clear win, definitely in the top, and always very, very safe from being auf'ed.

So, gee, Nick gets a score of 3 out of 4 and Santino gets a score of 0 out of 4. And yet, somehow, Santino stays in and Nick is sent home. I am sorry, but Project Runway jumped the shark last night. It was patently obvious that the producers had their say and kept in a "colorful character" over a "talented designer" and I am just sorry that it was Nick. You should've been in the top 3.

Anonymous said...

Nick ... I was among those who cried when they said you were out. :( Despite the seams, I thought your suit was perfect for Daniel and could see him wearing it in Paris or Milan! Is there an unwritten law that men's suits have buttons and pockets?

BTW-your outfit for Sasha Cohen was perfect for the ice.

I'm with Jay and I hope they can Santino!

Keep you spirits up because I think you can go as far as your dreams!

Anonymous said...

Nick!!

You don't need Project Runway, you are the run-away star of the show! You are an amazing, talented designer!

I'm devistated that you are "out". My husband and I were shocked to see it happen. If Santino gets any farther in this competition, PR has lost all credibility with me. He is TERRIBLE!

Keep doing what you are doing. You're amazing!

I've been resisting leaving a comment, 'cuz I don't want to be a fangirl, but let's face it, I totally am. xD

Last night's episode broke my heart. I literally GASPED when they said Santino was in. You deserved to be in the final 4 at the LEAST, but definitely the final 3. And your speech about your parents... oh. So sweet.

But I'm not too worried, as I'm sure you're not, either. You already had a fabulous line before you went on PR, and now you've gotten even more exposure - not to mention tons of people now vehemently arguing your dismissal all across the country this morning. I know you'll be fine, and I can't wait to see your next line.

Heidi said...

You were robbed! That evil Santino should have gone home, that jumpsuit was the worst.

You'll be successful wherever you go - you are great!

The only reason I was continuing to watch Project Runway to see you. You did an awesome job

I'm so upset you lost last night! Santino's design was so awful!!!! INJUSTICE! =(

Nick --
I seriously shed a tear last night. Please tell me it isn't true!

Loretta Cuthrell said...

I loved your dresses, you were my favorite, and I was totally shocked about episode 10, I will never watch that show again.

Anonymous said...

:( I'm so sad to see you go! You're not only my favorite designer on PR, but by most favorite person on any television show ever! I'm sure you have an amazing career ahead of you. xoxoxo

Sandra Rodriguez said...

Querido Nick: You have no idea how depressing it was to see your lovely face pout like a little boy when they auffed you last night. I cannot for the life of me understand what happened, except that you were robbed. However, I'm sure you don't need anyone to tell you that you are a truly inspired designer and you will go much further than others on the show (just remember Clay Aikin). Eres increiblemente talentoso y vas a llegar muy lejos. Saludos desde Puerto Rico.

Nick shouldn't have gotten booted last night. No way! Santino is a jerk and has had an exemption pass from day one. Both Kara and Santino should have been booted before Nick. Santino made Karas entire outfit! Yeah Santino won 2 challeneges and Nick won 1 but Nick had to work with that egotistical maniac on 2 Challenges which was basically a forfeit for Nick. NOT FAIR! Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and Heidi Klum have all been taking tips from the producers. That's the only reason why Santino is there. He did 2 nice garments the first 2 challenges. BIG DEAL! The rest of his work has stunk! That jumpsuit was a disgrace. Nick made an entire suit. Let's see, a few wrinkles on Nicks suit, vs. the entire arm falling off in shreds on Santinos. That's about as bad as Zulema! That jump suit was a piece of garbage, but the judges applaud baby Santino. If I were Kara I would have designed some diapers and a pacifier and sent Santino out on the runway looking more his age. Maybe design a nice baby blanket for the judges to ooo and aah over.

NICK VERREOS #1 ON PROJECT RUNWAY.

Nick you're a star. You will shine long after Project Runway because all that talent you possess can not be silenced.

nicklicious,

i'd auf your wiedersehen anyday.


much love and best of luck in the future.

d.vo's got your back... and there ain't nothing wrong with that.

Anonymous said...

I'll join the chorus in saying, you were robbed! I thought the slightly feminine Daniel looked hot, and I'm a het female.

Kara's jumpsuit was falling apart on the runway. How was that possibly better? Santino's outfits make his tall thin models look fat and pregnant. Why is he still in? Why?

Anonymous said...

Nick! I loved your flower/leaf dress along with Daniel V and Kara's. I did not think your dress was vulgar AT ALL. MK is just bitter.

Anyway, it was your departure episode last night and I cried. You are amazing and I know good things are happening for you!

Nick,

YOu are by far our favorite designer on the show, We were mortified last night when you lost the challenge. I am not sure why Michael Kors was so rough on you. If you ever design clothes for men, I would be the first to purchase and proudly wear one of your designs. My partner and I have routed for you since the beginning and were sad that you had to go. Iam sure you are veru busy, but please drop us an email to say hello......we would love it

thanks alan festivemen@aol.com

Tanya said...

You were soo robbed last night man.I was yelling at the tv. I can't believe they chose Santino over you his outfit was falling apart for gods sakes...I dont care.I liked the suit you designed.One Chloe made for you was soo you..you looked good :-) I'm sure we'll be seeing more of you very soon.

AngieA said...

I just have to tell you the people at Project Runway have lost out-your style and designs are incredible, and you have the most adorable personality to match. You and Chloe are the only reasons I watched the show-and I was disappointed last night when you were "out". Like someone on here already said, I would pay for something made by you in a heartbeat!
Keep on doing what you're doing because its amazing, and you're amazing!

Aziyade said...

Project Runway is one of 2 television shows I actually watch, and it's the only show I can remember that made me CRY so hard! Last night's episode made me feel like I was losing a friend.
But you went out so gracefully and elegantly.

Nick, you are a fantastic designer, and you seem to be such a wonderful person. I hope your students realize how lucky they are.

P.S. Ever consider designing costumes for Middle Eastern dancers? I would SO love to be the first on my block with a Nick Verreos original. :)

Lulu said...

Nick,
You are my favorite designer of both seasons of Project Runway.
Please don't get discouraged by the elimination.
There are a lot of fans that are looking forward to your success!!!

Anonymous said...

So sad to see you go last night.
I'm a bit miffed that the judges/producers are keeping Santino around just to see what his Fashion Week show will look like. First Andre, now you! Why are they chopping the really talented designers because of one flawed designed?

Santino continually overcooks his designs and last night's jumpsuit was just tragic! How to make a Kara totally self conscious about her body -- give her a skin hugging outfit, then make it completely shoddy.

I mean, I'm sure Austin Scarlet would have had a devine Fashion Week show, but at least the judges recognized his one-note designs (gowns, gowns, gowns!).

Now with only four left, Santino has to make it to the final three. How dull would it be with just Daniel V, Chloe, and Kara?

Margie said...

Nick,
It's the night after and I'm still in a funky state and teary.

I'm so sick of the judges and Michael Kors in particular.

The suit fit Daniel's body well. I could picture him with a men's wallet/pouch to carry. It would have finished the look, and I think it would have been so Daniel.

I really appreciate your eye for beauty and how it translates to the clothes you make. Pursue your passion because the world is definitely in a better place with your designs in it. :)

joe said...

Nick, I thought you made Daniel look like a Hottie-Hipster. I can't wait to see what's next for you in the world of fashion!

Anonymous said...

I'm so sad! You and Dan where my favorite designers on the show. I thought for sure that you would be going to fashion week. Well you're still an amazing designer who always gives what the customer askes. Good luck!!! <33

~*Alyssa Marie*~ said...

Last night, I cried. Even though I am an overly emotional 16 year old girl, I had a reason for crying this time.

I cried over your elimination.

I thought you were by far one of the greatest designers on the show, and I think Kara and Santino both had moment where they should have been gone long before you. And I thought your suit for Dan was fcuking amazing!

Even though you've been eliminated, you're going to move on to bigger and better things. I wish you the best of luck in your future successes. I love you Nick!!!

<33, Alyssa

Anonymous said...

Ditto that last post. I can't remember the last time I cried over a TV show. It was very emotional for me to see such a great designer leave the show. You really should have been final 3 or 2 if not best. Best wishes for your future.... I'm going to run out and buy the Barbie in honor of the fantastic job you've done!

~*Alyssa Marie*~ said...

Yes, thank you Anonymous! I knew I forgot to say something. My mom promised she would buy me the Barbie lol. I'm seriously gonna put it in a display case or something in my room. I can't wait to get it. I love you Nick!!!

Laura K said...

Well, obviously, you don't need to win at Project Runway to be a succesful designer Nick. You are already there. But we will miss you!

DayvudD said...

No matter what happens, you know you Rock! I loved what you said about your parents being proud. We are ALL PROUD OF YOU! Keep designing. And, by the way - I want to see more men's designs so I can buy something!

You are a jewel and show how special you are in how you handled last night with grace. I also appreciate authtenticity. I didn't see you speak with Santino and that was OK. Keep being yourself. Shine on!

Anonymous said...

Nick,
I know that the show was probably taped months ago, but I am absolutely devestated that you were out last night! you deserved to win the whole thing. I am now boycotting Project Runway (along with many other people) because I just can't stand the fakeness. It's all ratings! i just wanted to let you know that I fully am behind any of your future endevours and will look forward to seeing and BUYING all of your clothing in your clothing lines. You rock my socks off, nick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Nick!
I cried so hard last night when you were out. That was horrible, and wrong. But I love you. Congratulations on the Brenda Strong dress, it was just STUNNING. These other people are right- you handled the episode with so much grace I just admire you so much. I hope to see big things from you (I friggin expect it!) LOVE YOU.

missmeliss said...

You know, rationally, I am fully aware that throwing things at my television will not change the outcome of the show, but it made me feel a little better to throw everything within reach last night. I had a feeling my favorite was about to get booted, but it still ticked me off.

I'm sure going to miss seeing you on my screen, Nick. You are adorable and talented, and thanks to your conversation with Daniel about coming out and being gay, I was able to have a conversation with my Mom about being gay that seemed to open the door to tolerance a little wider. My upbringing is a lot like Daniel's - conservative, Christian, mid-American - and although I'm not gay myself, it bothers me that my parents aren't open-minded about it. I think my Mom was able to see the PERSON instead of the LABEL when she watched you and Daniel, and that made a difference.

Wishing blessings on you.

Genna said...

Nick, I am sad and furious that you were so obviously robbed last night. However If the fabulous dress you made for Brenda Strong & the press it garnered is any indication you have MADE it boyfriend! Your wonderful designer's eye & fantastic personality have been on display for the world to see & you knocked it out of the park! The "judges" may have not seen the obvious fact that you were head & shoulders above the rest, but we (the women who will flock to buy whatever you make) have seen it & will anxiously await something fabulous from you!

anna said...

i know you have been getting so many comments. you probably dont read all of them and you probably won't read this one but

I think you are an amazing person and an amazing designer. I've like you since the beginning of the season, and was heartbroken to see you leave, especially under such cirumstances. I know it is your dream to have a show in New York, and I really hope that happens for you

This probably sounds really creepy, especially from a 15 year old but I really I meet you some day. Not like "omg i want to like meet a famous person and we can be bffs omg omg" more like just meet you, on the street, in a resturant, whereever. You just seem like a really geniune and nice person who i'd like to talk to

Love,
Anna

Paige said...

hey Nick,
WOW i can not believe you had to leave on the show last night! i was so upsett you were my favorite from the first show! i wanted the boys from 35D to be the final 4! then i had a dream last might that you designed my prom dress, haha! i saw your dress at the sag awards and loved the back, i didnt know it was yours! good luck in all you do!

Nick,

You were my absolute favorite designer from the first episode of this season of Project Runway. I was SO incredibly sorry that you were sacrificed so that Santino could continue to torture all of his with his half-assed construction for one more week...

But, enough of that negativity! After watching you work, I know you will go far. I would have loved to have seen your designs walking the runway for Fashion Week, but that just had to be postponed. I'll be keeping my eye on you!

Wishing you all the success and hapiness in the world.

Lorraine Latta said...

Just another voice in the sea of disappointment and disapproval... I was shocked and saddened that you didn't make it to the final three. You're so much more talented than Santino... AND Kara!! I think they made a big mistake. But we all know that you're going to do fabulously in the future! We love you, Nick!

Saravt said...

Hi Nick,

I am so glad I found your blog! Last night I was SO sad (and angry) about your elimination. You have been my favorite designer from the first show! It is clear to everyone that the show is "rigged." There is no way Santino should have stayed last night, or for the past 4 weeks for that matter. If I ever win the lottery, I am going to call you to have you design a wardrobe for me! Be very proud of your work on the show. You were amazing!!! You have made a ton of fans who can't wait to buy your designs! XXOOXX Sara

Melissa said...

I adore you. Not just your talent and skill, but you. You're my favorite. I'll miss seeing you every week for sure.

Were you robbed? YES. Does this even come close to stopping you from succeeding? HELLZ NAH!

Anonymous said...

I know it's little consolation, but everything you have shown on Project Runway - your talent, your demeanor, your attitude - can only point to a bright future.

I'm sure perspective will kick in later if it hasn't yet, but no one can take anything away from you because you didn't prevail in a hyper-real world. It's a TV show and a contest, with its own set of rules that may or may not resemble reality. What stands out is that in an obnoxious world where so many people have a profound sense of entitlement, you comport yourself with humility and grace through the highs and the lows. You were a joy to watch from challenge to challenge, and while it's true that I don't know you personally and can only guess, you showed an unmistakable, innate sense of goodness that makes anyone - even strangers - proud of you and what you've done.

Rock on, Nick. Even if the fashion world doesn't fall at your feet - and no one's saying that it won't because you are by no means done conquering it - you will almost certainly shine at whatever you do because of the kind of person you are. Best of luck.

Maya said...

Dear Nick,

I loved the My Scene Barbie outfit that you made!! I have a My Scene Doll called "Nollee." I liked a lot of your designs. You were my favorite designer on the show. I have a best friend who thought you were good on the show too.

Sincerely,
Maya (7 years old, 2nd grader)

I'm so sad that you're no longer on the show! You were one of my picks for the top 3. You're so talented that I'm sure your career will skyrocket from here. Happy for you, but sad for Runway. :(

stacy said...

So sorry that you were robbed, Nick. They obviously want Santino on for the drama factor. There is no way that he should have made it with the sleeves falling off his ridiculous jumpsuit. You are far more talented.
Keep your head up.. there are 131 people just on this post alone that are rooting for you.
Sincerely,
Stacy

Emily said...

Nick:

I was very upset to hear that you were "out" last night, but all these great comments from people who share my sentiment have warmed my heart. I hope they warm yours. You are definately the Austin Scarlett of this season's Project Runway (the one who leaves to fan's great dismay!).

Your Brenda Strong dress was beautiful; it stood out among all those more famous designers who did dresses for the other "Desperate Housewives." Just as you stand out from the other designers on the show!

I hope to see Nikolaki show at New York Fashion Week soon! Who needs Project Runway?

Andi said...

Nick - so sorry to see you leave. As you can see there is a lot of support for you out here. Unfortunately someone has to go home and although I agree that Santino needs a reality check, I think the last six designers were incredibly talented. This has been a hard season for me to judge - every week someone else is doing something amazing. Hang in there and keep designing. (That's what it's about right?)

Anonymous said...

NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I can't believe you're gone!!! You have been my favorite from the very beginning. Every Wednesday night my friend and I would huddle around his TV sitting on the edges of our seats with fingers crossed making silent bargains with God that you would get through. I just can't believe that Santino is still "in". I'm sure that the judges only keep him around for drama purposes. I'm sure that you will go far with your huge talent and your wonderfully sparkling personality. Good luck!!!

D said...

Nick,
We are so sorry to see you go. You had grown to be our favorite for this season. I thought you would surely win overall. We all falter now and again, but the drive to succeed is what raises us to the top. You have immense talent and don't ever forget it. My wife and I wish you the best in all that is to come.

D

PS. I agree with some of the above posters, that Santino has had a pass on far too many of these challenges. Why that is? Who knows. But Hopefully Chloe or Daniel are able to show that Santino is just a creative mess. Good luck to you again.

MissGroupieSupreme said...

Extreme Devasation! I am SO sad that you were eliminated. Every week, it was a joy to watch you design and create beautiful items of clothing. Additionally and very importantly, your positive attitude, professionalism, and enthusiasm was so contagious and uplifting that it made you stand out so much more than some of your fellow designers. You are a true inspiration to all of us and my wish is that some day you will design a dress or something equally fabulous for me. Just let me know (groupiesupreme@juno.com)! Best of luck to you Nick! I know we are going to see fantastic things from you in the future.

Anonymous said...

I agree with so many of the comments here - I always enjoyed the show because it focused more on creativity and talent than on the "reality" factor, but this week made me realize that the producers are manipulating behind the scenes. And it's too bad - because for me Santino does add drama - I truly don't enjoy watching him on the show - he's not a fun villian to watch, just annoying. Plus I watch to see the end results - the outfits, and the process of making them. Santino's creations really aren't inspiring to look at.

And does anyone else think that the two dresses that Santino won the challenges for look VERY similar to each other - extremely similar styles I think.

Going to buy my first barbie doll in 30 years when your design comes out Nick!

Heather said...

Nick:

I cried and cried when Heidi said "you're out". I realize that this is "unreality" television but still....

I have to say that you are definitely the best dressed one of the group. I wish I had gone to your high school so you could have been my "rent-a-date"!

And I just have to say....the way you strutted down the runway wearing Chloe's design.....Tres Sexy!!! My heart is still going pitter-patter!

I would wish you the best of luck, but I know you won't need it. Great things are in store for you, despite Nina's and Michael's comments (boo! hiss!)!!!

Taylor said...

Nick I hope one day I can save enough money to buy my mom one of your dresses. I have almost 100 dollars from babysitting now. She loves your dresses and was mad you got voted off. She had picked you to win.

Anonymous said...

I was entirely disgusted/apalled with the results of Wednesday night's show. This is the utmost example of keeping contestants on television shows for ratings (i.e. Santino). Not only was Santino's design absolutely heinous, (it reminded me of a jumpsuit that Siegfried & Roy would wear taming tigers!)...it also fell apart on the freaking stage! Anyways, you were my favorite and it's going to be really hard to watch the rest of the show without you...

kylie said...

nick, you were my fave on project runway, and i literally screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOO" for about 20 minutes when they said "nick, you're out." WTF. you are my favorite contestant on PR, and it's a shame that they kicked you off. i will DEFINITELY support your fantastic line.

Terri said...

Hey Nick.....when Michael Kors asked about the buttons on the jacket, why didn't you ask where the buttons on his? What a jerk.

This is the first reality TV show I have watched. I loved PR, but as with everyone else, am totally disgusted. I don't even want to hear about the ratings...blah, blah, blah. You now join Austin as the most talented designer that was kicked off the show. What a shame.....

Good luck in your future endeavors. You are already established and now even more so. I guess now I will have to root for Daniel V to win, if I even show any interest in the show now.

Take care my friend and know that you did some very beautiful designs in very little time.

Your Fans said...

Nick,
We are so soory to see you leave the show. You and Daniel V. kept us tuned in. Your designs are original and beautiful, you are a great talent. Above all you are a kind, caring soul. We will miss seeing you weekly. I feel as if you have been robbed of a spot in the final 3. We still wish you the best with your future designs.
Take care, and I'm sure your parents are so very proud of you!!

DD said...

Dearest Nick,
You were and are my favorite from day 1. It was a sad evening this past Wednesday and tears were shed.
I'm still deciding if I plan on watching the show anymore.

Just know that you are a grand talent and have found support in many people.

May your career flourish and your designs worn by all. Thank you for making Wednesday nights a little more interesting.

Good luck with everything. I'll miss your smile and wit.

All of your designs are amazing. I was very dissapointed to see the result of wens. nights show. You are by far one of the most consistantly brilliant designers on that sad little show (now that u are gone it is in fact a sad lil show). I guess the producers cared more about good T.V. than good design. Your Fabulous and good luck!

rosey said...

Me and my 11-year-old daughter cried when you were cut last week. My two boys instantly asked if I wanted to take you off my computer background. No way!! Your sweet personality & talent will get you way farther than Santino. And the show just won't be the same without you. Good luck.

Allison In Maine said...

Nick, you are a fabulous designer, a wonderful person and a GORGEOUS man with a HUGE heart. I know you will go far in everything you do. I look forward to seeing you continue to set the world on fire! Your parents are not the only ones who are proud of you.

oh my lord nick.. i swear 2 u that i am still crying i hate those damn judgess..whyy???? u were the most talented one out of the bunch and from the moment i saw you i was jus head over heels..not in like a love way but you are just so cute and genuine and u made this season so worthwhile.especially your love for tara that was amazing and how you cared for her and didnt treat her like crap..im gonna miss you something serious =[ i wanted u daniel v. and chloe..this proves that this show is looking for ratings and not pure genius. forget if..WHEN u have your line at fashion week you can laugh in their faces..but i guess you already can because u designed a dress for the golden globes and santino is STILL waiting for nicky hilton to call ..i so wish you had one ..goddd im so sad

all the best love xoxo

Nick-
It's soooo true that you were robbed many times this season. I could NOT believe that N. Hilton choose a different dress! Well, then again, if anyone can get away with wearing a dress that adds 50 lbs to her figure it's her. I'm trying my hardest not to be catty!

It's so funny that when I met my husband he was such a homophobe, and I warned him straight away that he had better check himself if he wants to be with me (queen hag), and NOW he get's just as upset as me when he watches Project Runway and his designer doesn't make it. (You were also his fave this season). I sure learned that man.

I have a blogger, but lost the password. I mainly blog on livejournal now. I want you to know that I adore your work, and that you *ARE* just as lovely as the flirty make up artist said in the "make over" episode.

Nick, I personnaly LOVED your outfit. i thought it was absolutely beautiful and i loved the tea leaves. your outfit was truly a stunning masterpiece.

Stella said...

I'll add my voice to the many others who know you were robbed. Yes, the suit had execution problems, but those were the only problems IMO. I thought the color and look were wonderful, and the judges ought not to have quibbled over the lack of pockets and a button given the ridiculous time constraints you guys were under. So, if you have to choose between an ambitious, well-designed outfit with minor execution problems and a much easier-to-do jumpsuit (not to mention, an UGLY jumpsuit) that doesn't just have minor execution problems, it's falling off the body of the person wearing it...who gets aufed? It's a no-brainer in my opinion, but clearly the judges had no brains that night.

I was more bummed about your elimination than I was about Austin's, because at least Austin got to show at Fashion Week to avoid finale spoilage. Not so for you, and the fact that you didn't get to show, but Santino and Kara did, is really a tragedy.

I salute you, and if you come out with ready-to-wear, I'll be one of the first in line to buy it.
