Seriously I feel like a new person after today’s fashion show. I had another close call today. Isaac and Fern gave me the best compliment; they both agreed that I was very charming and charismatic and was only bringing 10% of my capabilities and not being true to myself. I find it difficult trying to find a median in my work. It’s even harder with all the added pressure of all the time constraints and dealing with all the personality in the room. Being here has definitely been a learning experience for me. I never thought I could be capable of dealing with something of this nature so well. I can’t wait to see what is coming next. I love being here and want to continue to push myself to be a better designer and also, I would love to continue my crush with the boy at B and J’s fabric. He makes things a bit easier to deal with all the hectic-ness.
Johnny, do you find yourself pulling back emotionally when Reco or other cast members express frustration with what appears to be apathy from you? I wondered about that as I watch, because I tend to do same thing. Some people seem to be aggressively trying to get you to match their own responses, and it would appear that you need the time and space to think things over. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt. Hang in there.
Snap out of it! You are a very cool designer. I did not think you should have been the one to go. I would have worn the outfit, minus the fringe, because I live in Florida. Maybe it was not very New York, but didn't you say the jock should be working at Home Depot? Ha-Ha. I saw a very well dressed lady at Home Depot last week, jeans and shirt kind of outfit but well pulled together. I don't think they are allowed to wear outfits like yours, they should, though.
You have made some really beautiful dresses, you can do it, if you decide to do it. I also love the way you look, kind of like a modern samurai with street savvy. Good luck this week.
