Heidi Klum understood that Freeman put a lot of effort into the dress. But she was not particularly happy with the silhouettes.
On the other hand, Nina Garcia added that there was an issue with styling.
After the judges looked at every collection, Kenya Freeman was sent home. She and her many fans were disappointed but proud that she made it so far into the competition.
With her creative designs and bubbly personality, Kenya Freeman from Project Runway made a lasting impression on the judges and other contestants. If you want to know more about the brilliant designer, then have a look at our Kenya Freeman wiki.

Kenya Freeman’s designer profile on Project Runway states that at the time, all she wanted was to look cute.
Designer Kenya Freeman
As a fashion designer, Freeman’s strength lies in tailored looks and women’s dresses. When it comes to her weakness as a designer, her troubles are with knits.
Kenya Freeman’s family always knew how passionate she was about designing and often told her to audition for Project Runway.
When Freeman was asked about the team challenge, she said, “Love and hate them. It’s cool when you’re paired with people who can hold their own weight, but can it can be devastating when you have to pick up the slack from someone else and could potentially be sent away because of that person.”
Freeman said about her experience on the show, “It was so many things – it was great, it was emotionally draining, it was fantastic, it was exciting and stressful, I’ve never absorbed so much caffeine, I’ve never gotten up so early – it was a lot of things. A very unique experience like no other and just to say that I am now a part of the Project Runway family at this point is something few can say.”
The Sylvia Mollie Brand
Freeman is the lead designer and creative genius behind the Sylvia Mollie brand.
According to its website, the brand “was started in Atlanta, GA and recognized as a high-end ready-to-wear women’s clothing line designed for classy women seeking an edgy look and conservative appeal. The look at Sylvia Mollie is what we like to identify as “classy trendy.” Creating modern classic looks without an expiration date, Sylvia Mollie specializes in a collection of garments from dresses to tailored pants, blouses, skirts, and jackets. Mainly, targeting women who are city dwellers, trendsetters, and fashion conscious.”
Although Freeman is no longer on Project Runway, many fans still love and appreciate her work. It was a sad sight to see her leave, especially with only one episode left in the season.
Freeman is an amazing designer who loves peplum tops and takes inspiration from everything around her. If you want to look at her work and life, then make sure you follow Kenya Freeman’s Instagram account.
