Grabbing the Bull by the Horns

Merlin doesn't hold back when talking about his fellow designers.

I can not believe that I'm still competing in this incredible odyssey. Seriously, The Fashion Show is the most important thing that has happened in my life. So far the competition has been difficult but not that hard for me. The judges, for good or for bad, are always correct and very good and wise with their comments. Blessed be God that they are! I continue fighting in my world of fantasy galactic by keeping both feet on the ground and remembering that I'm only dressing humans, not God or goddesses.

I'm not going to make excuses that I don't have formal fashion school training or that I haven't worked with famous designers before but in the end it does not matter. What's important is that I show that I can do it, that I try to put the best of me in each challenge and get better and better.

Today we are not working in teams and I'm so happy. I admit those beautiful shoes of Giuseppe Zanotti have left me hypnotized for the colors. I have finished moving each aspect of the shoe and detail into my outfit which will be super gorgeous but the look will be exaggerated like always. The best thing I can do is to grab the bull by the horns.

Angel, I'm happy that she dresses like the general public and I hope she continues to do so.
Daniella, it doesn't surprise me that she won the other week, yet again, her outfit is safe and forgettable. She'll continue to win and gain a lot of success. Reco has a lot of talent and knows how to take risks. He is a diamond in the rough and I'm happy to know him. I'm happy for him that he won the right.

Finally Andrew is gone. It is obvious that he is not interested in the world of fashion. He is a "man" of business and is here only for the publicity and he's got that from this. "Lidia Lidia". Lidia doesn't listen to advice or allow help; she's always making excuses and complaining.  Finally everyone will see and witness what I've been telling them all season.

In general, I feel tired to be here and that the products I've made has given me the opportunity to show what I can do and I'm not misleading anyone. I continue to try and give the best of me and may God help me!
