"Dan should have never designed a jacket. That was the worst call!!"

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.

Dan should have never designed a jacket. That was the worst call!! A jacket is the hardest thing to make!!!! It wasn't cute either, but still.

So stay tuned, each episode and characters get funnier and more exciting as well, as there is a lot to learn about the industry when you watch Launch My Line!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's Been Real

"As each designer introduced their collection and I saw their work unfold on the runway it made me so proud to be a part of LML."

It's been real - Kathy and Emil and Native Rose are victorious! What a finale! (How cool was Fergie? Positive, confidence building, supportive and kind - thanks for celebrating the designers rather than turning their world upside down in the last hours before the launch.)

I love that the finale was aired in 2 parts. While watching last week's episode, the stress and chaos (especially for Kathy and Emil) had my stomach was in knots and I knew the outcome. Listening to the teams reflect on our critiques as part of the creative process was awesome. We (hosts/judges) took our job seriously and are proud to have played a role in the team's evolution. As each designer introduced their collection and I saw their work unfold on the runway it made me so proud to be a part of LML. There can only be one winner, this is a competition, but in life and fashion Eric, Galina, Merle, Thai, Kathy and Emil are ALL WINNERS - BRAVO!

Eric and Galina - you stayed true to your girl from day 1. The Desi J girl loves life and is sexy 'cause she feels it. And in these clothes she will look it! You were a wonderful "mix" of personalities and talent and treated each other with kindness, class and dignity at all times. I hope you collaborate on a line and please send me the look book to place an order. Best of luck in everything, you deserve it!!!

Merle and Thai - WOW! When I saw the evening gown hit the runway all I could think about was where I was going to wear it! The asymmetrical long dress, convertible distressed look, high waisted pant - I will forward my address and credit card privately as I MUST OWN! Your vision was clear since the beginning and focus fixated on a woman like me and so many others who want versatile, beautiful clothes. I believe in each of you individually and as partners you have potential for greatness. Everything happens for a reason. I know your connection and collection will live on way past LML. Please keep in touch, I can't wait to see the future of Inside/Out. It was beyond a pleasure to spend time with both of you.

Kathy and Emil - YAY!!!! Native Rose will be launched and I can't wait to shop Rue La La and get my hands on the strapless zebra dress and black jumpsuit! I am thrilled for you. Your integrity and value for each other and the Native Rose collection was clear in both your designs and relationship. Even in the arduous moments you respected each other, never made it or took it personally. The ability to work with others, manage, lead, is a true gift and a major ingredient in the design and business recipe.

Kathy, YOU are a JEWEL! May you only experience wonderful things in your life and actualize your dreams. Emil, you exude sophistication and charm. Native Rose is going to be on everyone's radar this Spring and I hope in seasons to come.

Congratulations on it all - I am so proud of and happy for you!!!

Dan and Dean- You are my G's and I, your J. New York, LA, Mykonos, London, Milan (Italy, Europe - ha ha!) Can't wait to see you soon!

Lisa Kline - LML did not introduce us but brought us closer. In the darkest moments of your life you radiated and marched on. You are a winner and a warrior and I love you. Viki, Holly, Mark, Jen and the entire LML family - thank you for a wonderful experience.

Until we meet again
