This episode of The Fashion Show forced the designers to work in pairs. This can either work out really well or be a disaster, so it’s really scary going into it.
In the mini challenge, the designers transformed interns nightlife walk of shame outfit into proper business. This was Johnny and Merlin's episode. They were the clear winners in my eyes for both challenges, but only won the mini. They clearly had the most change in outfit and were the most creative with what they had. I loved the belt buckle as the broach.
James Paul and Lidia had an OK business look, but I really didn’t see much change at all.
Haven and Anna’s were not impressive and showed no creativity.
Daniella and Reco, who usually have the best consistently, did not do well at all in this episode. Although both good designers, clearly they can’t work together and you saw the stress in their designs. That draped dress over a collared shirt was sloppy and silly.
For the elimination challenge, they stayed in pairs and, of course, some liked it and its no secret who hated it. They had to design for Isaac’s line, which is really an amazing challenge. I love him and of course admire his use of color.
There were two clear bests and two clear worsts.
I disagree with the judges, and thought that Johnny and Merlin should’ve won. Yes, the coat was felt and I really don’t know what Johnny was thinking, but that aside, the choice of color, fabrics, and silhouette was a joy to see come down the runway. I would wear that anywhere. It was very pretty.
It's sad to read critiques from "The Most Obnoxious Designtestant" in the history of Project Runway... Your criticism is ironic. The losing dress from Lidia reminded me of the absolutely awful and laughable fish scale dress you made toward the end of your season on PR. You really didn't belong in the final four.
Since your designs were either ridiulous or repetitive, why are you commenting? Don't you have a professional designer to plagiarize (i.e. Alexander McQueen)?
Wow I was reading your Blog, which I thought was right on. Then I read the comment before that, now that is what I call mean.
Lynda's comment sucks. There will always be detractors, but so what? There are more people who appreciate you.
Moving on, I look forward to your blog. Don't you think that there is heavy black on the winners? The online store is all black with a tiny bit of color. Even for the Isaac challenge, who is all about vibrant color, the judges voted black. This is a strange fashion show.
Whatever Lynda, at least Kenley has pure talent to have been chosen for the show and, quite frankly, she was the most talented of the bunch. What is your talent?
Hey....have to say that I am surprised to see this blog here.
I think Kenley is talented...but she's also a poor sport, immature and obnoxious when not getting her own way. One of the biggest whiny crybabies on tv.
How bout posting a blog from a former winner instead of loser?
Kenley; Why the heck your not one of the judges on that show is a mystery to me when you can articulate and critique fashion the way you do? Keep up the good work and looking forward to see some of your dresses in the future.
Kenley, I liked your fashions on PR. I really liked your 50's style in the dresses you designed and I LOVED the wedding dress you made. I did not really like the attitude you had sometimes but you can change that. Good Luck to you.
Lynda S. who are you? Stick to the program and stop with petty personal attacks; it's not very attractive.
I agree with you Kenley; I feel that Merlin and Johnny should have won the competition. I did not care too much for Haven's shorts; I personally would never wear a pair of short, regardless the name you decide to give them.
I loved your clever comment about the bad thrift store and the vintage granny look. That is exactly what I was thinking when I saw the pants. I thought it looked like a Butterick pattern from 1985.
I'm sad that Lydia's dress failed. She was very talented and I would have like to see more.
I have not only loved your personal style, but also your designs since the beginning of project runway. I definitely aspire to your sense of style, confidence, and creativity.
I really enjoy reading your blog and am excited to notice that many of your opinions resemble my own. I also agree with whoever said that you should be one of the judges on the show! You'd be incredible! :]
I agree with you! The design by Johnny and Merlin was a clear winner, so I had no idea why the judges chose Anna/Haven's design. I have noticed that the judges tended to like gloomy and/or unsophisticated designs, most of which came from Daniella. You can see that when going over viewer ratings on this site, the so-called "winning" look from the Daniella gang always received poor receptions and I doubt anyone would want to buy those looks. I am really disappointed by this new show... I want Project Runway back!!!
Kenley, I enjoyed reading your comments. I didn't think Reco should have been eliminated so that viewers could not vote on him, since he was part of the final four.
Also, Kenley, I personally thought you had the best design on Project Runway for the season where you participated. I was so sorry that the judges felt a couple of your looks were "derivative." I really liked your hand painted prints for the final competition.
I hope you go on to become a very famous fashion designer. You are creative and talented. Artists do tend to be temperamental, in my experience, but I didn't appreciate the way some of the others "ganged up" against you. You seem courageous and offer compelling design.
Kenley--- Hmmm, as for you Lynda S. sounds like we have an unhappy camper with anger issues. Kenley I think you are very talented and will go very far in life. Surround yourself with those who love you, but support you with honest fair critiques, when asked. Sometimes we don’t always want the people we love to give their opinion; just their unconditional love and support and we all need that. You rock , your sense of style and design will take you to the moon, you have what it takes don't let nay-sayers bother you. They are just projecting their own negative baggage onto you as they can’t afford a therapist. Lovya Mel
