Tims Take

Finding creativity among seatbelts, floor mats, headlights, and seat cushions!

Korto wowed everyone and was close to stealing the win from Leanne. Undaunted, she wove dozens and dozens of taupe seatbelts to create a swing coat that was an homage to the mod 1960s of Courreges. This was no easy feat, and to be able to manipulate the belts in such a manner that they would drape with ease was a serious exercise understanding the grain lines of the textile (Blayne's problem). The result was spectacular! Rachel Zoe even declared that she wanted the coat for herself.

thank you for this blog because once again this season i am so disappointed in judges' choices

i thought this week's design was sweet and fresh and no one would guess made from car bits - if not best at least deserved to pass over kenleys's air filters which looked frumpy and uncomfortable

judges are apparently terrified to remove stella - jumped with evident relief on keith's sensitivity to last week's criticism over his humourous take on the funky chicken whichh again at least deserved a pass on drag night

it seems that judges, in panic to avoid having to tell Stella that she has not got what it takes have lost the plot this year
