Driving Miss Nick: Oscar Gracia-Lopez and Nick Verreos--Season Finale Episode "Project Runway: Under The Gunn"
Now, let's get to the Finale Episode and Fashion Show and my "Nick Inside Dish"...
The Workroom--Pre-Finale Collection:
Mood Fabrics Los Angeles--Since it was the final Mood shopping trip and I was lucky enough to come along with him, at the end I made sure to take photos of Oscar on the floor with all his bags of fabrics, as you can see above. He was ready to start making his collection!
The following day, after a whole day of working, draping, sewing, and fittings with his models at the FIDM "Under the Gunn" workroom...I again, made sure to capture some images since I knew that this would be the last time before the Finale Runway...
If you remember, Meredith is who wore the creme "Getty Museum" caped ensemble that won him that challenge.

Finale Runway Night:
Under The Gunn Finale Fashion Show Presented by Lexus--Los Angeles Theater, Downtown Los Angeles
Mentor Step-and-Repeat: (L to R) Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos--Under the Gunn Finale Fashion Show, Los Angeles Theater
He literally LIVED through this whole show with me--and dressed me EVERY MORNING; he was my unpaid stylist., as well as my "Rock".
Every night, while filming, I went home and threw out my heart and soul to him--and made sure he had read the "Confidentiality Agreement" clause...over and over and over again!
For the photo above, I quickly met him in the theater a couple of hours before the fashion show would start; he wanted to wish me luck. PS: Love him!
Oscar Time: Time for Oscar Garcia-Lopez to introduce his five-piece collection--which he only had TWO DAYS (!) to make...By the way, the creme colored wrist piece was made by Natalia Fedner. He wanted to wear it as an "homage" for her help and for being part of "Team Nick-Oscar".
