Even though I was eliminated from the competition today, I’m still feeling very positive about the experience.
At the end of the day I can be proud that I created a garment that is fluid, feminine, and salable. Even though the judges did not believe in my design, I think it is a dress that real American women would love to wear. I am glad I stuck to my guns and created a design I can be proud of.
I am really glad to have been in the competition and truly enjoyed every minute I was in it. I am also grateful for all of the friendships I have made along the way. I really didn’t expect to make any friends as it was a competition, but am grateful for the connections I made.
As for the future of Andrew Christian, I plan on continuing with my clothing line, creating and innovating with new designs and fabrications. I love fashion and couldn’t imagine anything else in the world I would rather do than to be a fashion designer.
Do not take anything they said to heart. That dress was fabulous, it is obvious from the fact that Isaac could not get the whole pannel to agree with him. Your dress was not at all boring. IT WAS WEARABLE. I would think that Isaac would understand that concept since he is no John Galliano himself. Still, Honey, if a salesman tells you that you have something people would buy, d_ _ n Isaac and his two cent opinion. After all, a quick review of his career will reveal that Yves Saint Laurent, he aint. Keep doing what you do and never, ever let anyone direct you.
THE JUDGES ARE STUPID, YOU SHOULD HAVE WON OVER LIDIA'S PIECE OF SCRAP. PEROID! I DONT KNOW IF THE ELIMINATIONS ARE BASED ON THE ACTUAL GARMET OR BRAVO WANTS MORE DRAMA FOR RATINGS, WHATEVER. DONT FEEL BAD, EVIL TELEVISION NETWORKS ARE TO BLAME
Isaac aka Ms Target, she needs to stick to what she knows; cheap fabrics, mass produced and off the rack styling. His brand has never been brilliant! I have to say you were the only eye candy remaining so I will no longer be tuning in to see the "train wreck" of talant that is left.
I'm sorry I'm a normal American woman and I would not wear your dress. It looked frumpy, the waistline made the model look like she was wearing a maternity dress. The colors horrible...bland, boring.
I liked your dress. The hemline was interesting, too. Merlin's dress looked like a maternity dress. Lydia's was ugly, to me.
I think your dress was the only one shown that would actually sell.
Most of the dresses were an ugly joke...and even the winning dress only works for a size 2 woman, and even then made her look oddly shaped and boobless.
Merlin, Lidia, Johnny, John Paul, and Anna's dresses were ugly as hell, and wouldn't sell on a discount rack at TJ Max.
My daughter is in fashion design and we were both watching last night's episode. I'm 53 and loved your dress and she is 21 and loved it. Elegant and sophisticated. The guest judge got it right, the rest....well who knows? There were several other dresses that should have made the bottom two, like Merlin's-- what a mess. I can't imagine any age woman actually wearing something like that. I also did not care for the pink floral dress. When you can make a model look heavy in the hips and fat, no thanks. I think you will do great in the future. Sorry to see you leave. Best of luck.
I applaud you for leaving this competition on solid ground and with class without lashing out at anyone. Your pieces where well executed. The rest is a matter of differing taste. I saw nothing in what you executed that you need to be ashamed of. It is interesting that some of the designer's implied that your work was "copied" from theirs. I wonder has anything in fashion not already been previously done already? The blue bolero jacket , is that truly an original piece? The black dress? The Harem pants?...It seems that part of the fun in designing is taking a designer's concept and refashioning their concept to your own personal version of the black dress, the harem pant, etc...If we are to place blame, then all designer's are guilty of borrowing other designer's concepts and inegrating them into their own.
The 2 judges where way off base. The dress looked great, and I would wear it:if I would be a woman, Continued success with your endeavors. When I went on a recent RSVP cruise I bought 10 (yes 10) pairs of your creations-love them. Of course I follow you on twitter. YOU are a great, inspiring designer!!! http://twitter.com/durkart
I just hate to see that you leave in this state. I would love to see more of your designs. I thought your designs are cute and I hope that you would succeed in your future endeavours. Love from Indonesia.
I didn't watch the show but I saw the photos of the dresses and I'm very surprised Andrew's dress was eliminated. It was a cute dress.
Sorry to see you go, I liked what you made and Lidia should have gone home not you. Glad that you are letting this knock your desires down, keep going strong.
Andrew I was rooting for you to win, and yes your designs didn't involve any "risks" but that's fine. Each designer has to hold their own with what they make and you were doing what you felt was right. I am a huge fan of yours and hopefully one day I can either see you once again on TV or meet you along my modeling career. Maybe this just wasn't your competition and you're meant to be somewhere else at this time. I'm glad that you are still feeling optimistic because I'm feeling that too. I'm sending great energies your way my man!
If I would be a woman, I would love that dress. The judges were wrong. With you gone;who do I cheer for? Good luck with all your endevors. Keep creating&love your creations.
I hope Andrew is selling the design of his last dress from the show somewhere. I know it may not be high fashion, but it looks extremely wearable. I work for a fashion company and I will wear that dress to work any day.
