For this week's elimination, Reco was head designer. The challenge was to make an outerwear coat for each season with a surprise function. I designed a summer coat/dress that had inside compartments at the skirt for hairspray, mirror, and cosmetics. When Isaac and Kelly came in to see our progress I got into a bit of a tiff with them about a comment they had made about my design aesthetic. As usual, I threw a small fit, but quickly recovered and continued to work on my garment. At elimination, we were the losing team and sadly, Markus and I were up for elimination. Markus was sent home and I was told to work on my confidence as a designer. Isaac told me I was “hanging by a thread, not by my strand of pearls.” It was cute and I was glad to be given another chance.
Haven is my FAVORITE so far! Not only do I LOVE her name but I love her style and her personality! She's feisty and confident and has the attitude to make it far in this competition and you definintely need that in the Fashion industry!! You have to beleive in your designs and you can tell that she does! I also believe she will make it far in the competition because she hasnt had as much airtime as others, even when she was the project leader and when she was in the bottom 2 they still didn't show her much, so I think she is gonna make it far! They're saving her for us for later (the best for last!)!! I can totally see her designing a very fun and edgy but wearable line and I hope she does just that! Im rooting for Haven all the WAY!! PLUSSSSS you can tell she thinks it is a joke that she actually has to listen to Kelly Rowland and her opinions, advice and design critiques, when KR has absolutely no more knowledgeability of the fashion design process than my dog. At least on Project Runway, Heidi Klum was in the fashion industry and has proably been a muse and inspiration for many designers; and has mostly been surrounded and involved in the actual world of fashion throughout her career. Heidi's existence on the show made sense and the designers probably respected and listened to her opinions way more than Kelly R's, and im sure it was WAY EASIER than having to listen to some ex-girl group singer act like she knows enough about the fashion design process to pick the show's next new designer. Isaacs great but get rid of Kelly!
