Well it is nice to finally have the first espisode air!I thought it was great. The characters were amazing, so were the teams, and getting to know them.
As a judge I never really got to see the inside drama of behind-the-scenes partnerships and the stress that happened. I just know that not being a designer and having to come up with an entire line, direction, vision and picking out fabric with someone you just met who is an "expert" isn't easy. Then they have to use what they picked as fabric for the rest of the show and have to be very creative with the challenges given to them.
I heard that there was drama with Marilyn and Coco, and that Coco left the studio. When I watched what happened I was shocked that Coco said she was tired and left. I would have been furious, and Marilyn was calm, cool and collected and worked the night away to redesign her first outfit! That was impressive and she was the audience choice which shows that hard work and vision and instict pays off.
The show was much more fun to watch than I anticipated. There was a nice variety of personalities selected as contestants. I thought that the contestants were faced with a real challenge when they had to make decisions, without help, that would have to work for them for the duration of the program.
The dress selected by the audience as best, really was and should have won. I was pleasantly surprised after noticing the extra challenges of that particular contestant, Marilyn. It seemed that her designer, at one point, left her high and dry. In addition, I thought that the fact that initially, the dress was two sizes too small for the model would make her chances of completing the project well and in time were very slim. Obviously,her sense of style and determination worked to allow her to come up, in time, with a creation that had remarkable flair. I loved it and would buy it!
The only thing missing was my Mom. I would love to give her the opportunity of a lifetime. The chance to show her beautiful jewelry line to the world according to Bravo! Thank you for a great show!!! Keep up the good work!
