Wow! I made it without losing my mind. Or did I? No contact with the outside world for five long weeks. I was so tired I couldn’t cry. I can truly say I worked really hard and learned a lot. But now the real work begins. No Kelly, no Isaac, and no Fern. Just me, my thoughts, and my sewing machine. Leading up to elimination I tried to keep my mind off of what could happen and stay positive. I knew there was a knockoff and an ugly dress in the lineup. At the end of the day Johnny went packing with again, another knockoff. Goodbye. Now my little brother will get to show off his work. You better not have any ugly dresses JP!
Reco, Please take the time and re-think things, sometimes simple is just classic...anything to beat that b$%^* Dannilla, she's too smug. Loved this dress but, I think different colors would have been better for the red carpet, sorry. Just thinking of the styles that Nicole K. Holly and Angelina wear. Come to think about it, Dannilla's dress was sort like one that Angelia did wear, that cream one, forgot what award show. But, honey I know YOU have style and class. Best of luck, voting for you!
Good job Reco! Tame the ego but be confident. Last but not least...WATCH OUT FOR ANNA! I have a feeling that she is going to win it all and snatch those prizes right out of your hands! Give her credit...that girl is good!
By the way...your black and white pantsuit should have won last week! It was just exquisite!
RECO... I am voting for you all the way. I all love your designs. I am 26 years old and me and my girlfriends range from 21-30 and we feel like you completely appeal to our age group. I don't understand why your designs always get picked last. YOU ARE MY NUMBER ONE.
You know you are the best designer out of the four. Be Blessed and not stressed.
Love from the D- Detroit
Wow...I am not making this competition about being black or white. Every time I look at your collection and your testimony about how you got there, I cry. I have been laid off work twice in one year and to see God manifest Himself through this educated southern black man...I am elated. Don't forget that you have not planned to fail. Your work is simply great. Don't compare yourself with anyone. Your are my favorite designer by far. When God blesses me with the resources, I will pay for you to have a fashion show here in Birmingham, AL. I believe in you that much.
You are a phenomenal designer and your work ethic is unparalled - THAT spells success! Well done, the show has already made you a major force in fashion - it really doesn't matter what happens (though I think you will win!). Thanks for a great season of premium design and great entertainment. You should have your own show!
I've been onboard the "Reco" train since day ome. I would love to own the pants suit.I thought it was fabulous. Week after week your talent shows through in your designs.Your only competiotion IMHO is Anna. She is also a talented designer..but "at the end of the day" I think you're the best...Good luck on your collection...I can't wait to see it. Win Reco WIN!!!!!!
You can do it! Beat them all. Don't over think it, just let your creativity flow. Do YOU Reco. Be true to self and it will be worth it in the end. Viewer and future participant,
reco: you are great!!!!!!! i love you!!!!!!!!!!! take your time plan your line well and make it work rest assure you have stiff competition in anna she is the fans favored to win. but of course you are my favorite and i'm never wrong. so good luck and i know you can do it
Don't knock where you come from because it is there which got you to this point. Never forget!
Now, about your mad skills...I think it is truly up to you to make it work for you. You have competition and never forget that, but you are in a world of your own, which is good in terms of your designs. You're darn good man! I wish you the best. Also, don't be so negative with the competition...I think all of you bring out the best in one another. Keep doing your thing and good luck next week.
Show us what you're working with Rico!!!
Your talent is far superior to any of the others on the show. I think you are terrific and absolutely love your clothes. Can't wait to start buying your designs on a regular basis.
You Are The Man!!! Don't let anyone tell you that your not. I would love to wear your clothes one day. Soon lol. I know you will win because I'm voting for you a million times lol.
I think you are the best designer and the most honest person on The Fashion Show. That young girl whose name I always forget needs to get with the real world. I thought that gray dress was ugh-lee. I will be voting for you early and often next week. Good luck, darling!
Rico, I want you to win. I think you are the best designer there. You radiate tyle and know how to hussle. You have a gift. Use it! If not I know you will be working for Issac or Kimora anyways. They would be a fool not to choose you! Don't forget the plus sized women. I want to support you also!
Pass the time for me to be wearing designer fashions. Also, not much use for them in Maine (long winters and not place to go). However, if I were in my 20s again and living back in NJ, I would be knocking on your door. Great work!!! Keep positive, try to stay cool, and believe in yourself. Can't wait to see your collection! :)
Reco you better bring it! Don't make the mistake like Michael did on Project Runway, you are a GREAT DESIGNER and I've been rooting for you since day one.
Reco, you truly are a fab designer. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE, remember to stay HUMBLE. Humility speaks VOLUMES)))))))). Remember there are a lot of celebrities AND designers watching, make em proud to have you! Keep up the excellent work and be blessed!
Please use lots of colors as you have throughout the show. I would also love to see you incorporate prints. That makes the outfits POP!
You are the greatest and so refreshing!
Reco, I watch the fashion every week just 2 see what you are going to pull. Cause you does the dang on thing! And you are not afraid to take chances! When you were in that final two that ONE time I had to get some tissue because I was bout to bust out if they were gonna send you home! (Cause you never know with them judges). Anyways I am so happy for you! Many blessings! Knock there behinds dead! And may you take the prize!

Reco, I LOVE your designs! I Love your confidence and it is well deserved! Your work is detailed and flawless. I think you should take it all :)
I love how you design your clothes to make a women look sexy but not trashy. Please contact me as I am very interested in purchasing a few of your designs. I really want the grey suit with the vest and skirt with the red ruffle blouse. How can I buy it. I really need and want it.
Good Luck with your portfolio. Will be pulling for you.

Hey Reco, I just want u to know how much I admire u not a designer, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT U ARE THE BEST!!! But as a person my favorite was how u was able to hold ur own even tho Daniella was not being completely honest about the disaster u guys had to create together, more like she created anyway. Good Luck really congratulations tho because I know u've already won. I hope I can get to where one of your designs one day.
Hey Reco..you're work is fabulous! Just do your research and history but know that I am sooo proud of you and all of your accomplishments. I hope you take it to the top.
Reco I can't wait to see what you came up with . You have always been my favorite, not just for your designs but you have a great personality. I can honestly say I would not be so enthused to watch the show if it was not for you. Best of luck to you I know that you will be a success no matter what happens.
