Jim did an amazing job creating the L jean, inspired by Kathy and the road trip to the wash house, but the strapless top was a total missed opportunity. I loved Merle and Thai's dress, it has the potential to be a key item in their line and signature to their brand. Rarely would one see a jersey fabric look sophisticated distressed but this versatile dress totally worked. I definitely don't see the muse, Louanna, ever wanting or wearing the brocade jacket (nor did she) but I would love to see her in the gorgeous dress!
Then there was Lady Marmalade, created by Patrick and Roberto. I was "torn" over the dress, but knew in my heart it was the weakest work in the challenge. Patrick -- you are not only a "dandy" you are a true GENTLE-MAN. It was a pleasure to work with you and Roberto, watch you bring out the best in each other and learn to celebrate your dissimilarities. I also want to note how beautiful your sketches were. I wish both Patrick and Roberto a wonderful 2010 and do hope our paths cross. (Maybe Venus, perhaps New York??).

Finally, The talentless Patrick and his scene stealing "expert" have been given the gate! Their time expired challenges ago. Although you thought he had a cohesive line; who do you think it would appeal to? Maybe "Streetwalkers R US". Last night's dress did look like it was caught in a fan as the model walked on the runway.
