Miss Lidia. I loved the idea. It could have been rock and roll mixed with Chanel, but it was too ambitious for a 14-hour project and you bit off more than you could chew. Guess what? That’s absolutely OK and you know it. Better to fail spectacularly and show the judges what’s in your head than play it safe, which is what got Andrew eliminated. Andrew’s dress was saleable, no question. That’s not going to win a competition. It was nicely done, and nice is not a word you want to hear in reference to a runway show.
That’s it for this week and I can’t wait to see what comes next – can someone please design a fierce one-piece outfit that can be thrown on in the dark and worn out to ride big wheels? American Apparel tube dresses only take you so far!
Hi there Alex, I hope your summer has started out well. I totally agree with your views on the Fashion Week, and with Lidia that you have absolutely the best taste, style and grace. More people have stated that since the reunion show. You have really come into " your own." Both you and Simon. Some of the viewer's said the two of you were nothing but social climbers and " feeders, " but I have always disagreed on that. Well, those same viewers have changed their tune, as they have said themselves. They saw the biggest " grown-up " change in you two, this past season, and hundreds have fallen in love with America's favorite couple that Ramona loves to hate and is jealous over. LOL Alex I absolutely loved that corset style " Feed" top Simon purchased for you. It was a perfect fit and you wore it beautifully. Hugs and kisses to the cute little " chums ", and cannot wait for the book. AND, the new season. Besides, Jill and Bobby ( with Brad and Ally and Gloria ), You and Simon just make my day. Love you guys. Your Number # 1 Fan, Vicki
i agree with you regarding lidia's dress. Given more time it would have been so spectacular. I'm so enjoying your insight into the fashion world and love that you love the Fashion Show as much as I do. Again I value your insights into New York's unique take on the world. You are a great translator and look forward to reading your next blog entry.
I just read the NY Daily News article...NICE!! The girls from NY are nothing but stuck up, social climbers who care more about image than anything else!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Jersey girls...they have more class than any of you!
I miss you now that the NJ housewives are on. I also agree with you on the fact that Merlin should have probably gone home. However, he adds sass to the show. I was super surprised that Angel could pull it off but she did so well with those american flag shoes! Keep up the good bloggin'!
Dear Alex, Thank you very much for being a great supporter!!! You totally got my idea of Chanel-esque Parisian cocktail party event and where I was going with it :) Yes, my concepts require usually more than just 14 hours, I guess I'm a big risk taker with big ideas :) I absolutely loved your outfit that you chose form Maggie Norris on one of the episodes of Real Housewives of NYC. You poses an absolute, taste, style and grace!!! Maggie and I showed together our fashion shows back in 2003, she is one of the greatest American couturier of our time.
P.S. also, I would like to thank you that you adored my rain coat idea, it made me smile when I read your blog.
