Simone is OUT. I do not dispute Simone's talents as a designer: she's excellent. Her undoing was all about inadequate construction. Was I a fan of her garment design? Not entirely, but we can debate its conceptual quality and relevance. We cannot debate the construction; poor workmanship abounded. Furthermore, she didn't have time to set in the dress's zipper(!). Watching her design walk the runway was painful. I merely hoped that her own exit would be quick. It was.
Why do the Project Runway desingers think they must dress and look so strange? Why don't they look at some of the guest judges, most are well groomed and charming.Look at Tim Gunn.
I have an idea for a first challenge!!! Dressing a video game character. There are some cool outfits in games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. The designers could really have fun with it.
