If she's been in the business for well over 10 years now and can't win THIS... I'd say there's something flawed in her designs that perhaps she needs to take a look at.
She said herself that this was the biggest thing for her... I'd feel frustrated if I didn't win with all that designing history under my belt.
Either way, I think she'll be just fine! The show gave her a lot of exposure, which will, no doubt... boost her name in the biz.
