Iman let us which collection was a bit of a snooze which deserved straight-to-DVD treatment

Bravo: You mentioned you’d wear Eduardo's dress. What about it did you find so successful?
Iman: The chicness of Eduardo's dress is what I loved most and the construction of it. He is so good at these complicated structures that also have movement, which is a feat.
Bravo: Were you surprised with Cesar's dress, as it was a major departure for him?
Iman: I was astonished! It was a huge let down. Maybe he believed his own hype at the beginning and he has let his guard down. He chose the colors of the House of Emerald collection and guided the team to their defeat! Also, he should have spent more time finessing his garment than helping the opposing team! Beware Ceasar!
Bravo: This week we saw a few designers leaning on each other: Ro and Cesar, Calvin and Tamara, and Cindy and Golnessa. What do you think of these sort of communal relationships? Does it make you as a judge worried you aren’t seeing the whole picture?
Iman: As judges we never the see the full picture anyway and our job is really to judge the product and not the characters, unless you are Calvin!

The concept of the show encourages teamwork but it doesn't mean one should ignore their individual looks. So far I find most of the allegiances are good and healthy with the exception of Cindy and Golnessa. Since they worked together before you would think it is perfect but I think it is a little bit off-kilter. But only time will tell which one will be still standing in the next couple of episodes!
