Wow. We got dropped off in the hood and were given an address to an unknown place and lo and behold it was a psychic studio. Only in New York. Having passionate work is how she started reading from the Tarot cards. Then she goes on to say to loosen up and have fun with your work. From the reading our challenge was to design anything you liked that you got from your reading. I took time designing and planning for the first time in the competition and hey, it paid off. The judges said when my pantsuit hit the runway the crowd was moved. Kelly and our guest judge said they would love to wear my piece and it was very sophisticated. One more challenge to go and I’ll be in the final four.
I love Reco..I'm behind you all the way. Your fashion speaks to me and I feel that you was put on this show for a reason.I'm a inspired designer and watching you keeps me encourage with my dreams,wishing you the best luck and always watching and cheering for you. Your number 1 fan, Urika Wilson
Reco, I couldn't believe your knockout outfit didn't win! I cannot think of anyone who wouldn't love to show themselves off in that glamorous, lady-like creation. You won't have to win this competition - although I'm sure you want to - in order to be successful, as your talent is immediately apparent to even the most casual viewer. Best of luck!!!
U are a great designer with a big mouth...but U are really talented and true to yourself! I will buy your clothes...darling!
Reco, you are such a talented designer. You have passion for what you do and it has shown throughout beginning of the show. I hope you win, you deserve it. However, no matter what happens I'm sure I will be buying Reco in the near future. From a person who considers herself as being your fan.
Reco, I absolutely loved your pansuit! The jacket top with all the curvey accents was to die for! You should have won! I didn't care for the dress with all the loopy pockets in front. Stupid. Win this thing Reco!!
hi Reco-i LUV LUV LUV your designs. Stay encouraged because your designs are "ON-Q". You have REAL and ORIGINAL TALENT so keep keepin' on.
I,myself, am a self-taught designer. It just goes to show that you don't really need a "Fashion Academy" certification to be taken seriously. People know talent when they see it. They don't care where you got it from. You are living proof that a belief in yourself and passion is all you need to be special. At anything!!! Stay real! You are the most consistent designer on that show! And the best! See you in the Final Four. Good Luck.
Good luck Reco! You are the best. Hope you win this. If not, be sure you are going to become someone known for your designes. Sorry if my english is bad. I'm not from America. I'm from Europe. Good luck again.
reco, i love your designs i dont know where u get it from but it is great every week. continue doin ur best love u, and when u get ur own line can you please show your line at st. louis fashion week, cause st. louis would be blown away.

Peace Your Midwest Fan Kither56
Oh my goodness, Reco! I just saw your collection in the Gallery Photos. It is fantabulous! You truly rock. Now, think about something for us voluptuous folk, OK? Congrats, Divo!
Reco, I did like your outfit better; much more polished and classier. Made a woman look as if she wanted to be taken seriously, yet sexy at the same time. It was powerful. Keep up the good work!! Just do your thing and keep some of the negative comments to yourself; you will find that it will make you feel better and focused on more of your creative fabulousness!!! Love ya!!
Reco, you have what it takes. I only tune in to the show to see your work. Give them hell because you a BADD!!Can you be a mentor for a sista?
Reco, that outfit was dope! Loved it, need it, want to buy it! PLEASE sell your clothes somewhere, whether you win this competition or not.
Hang in there. I really want you to win!
Reco I love everything about you. This show needs someone as strong as you. Don't let anyone get to you because you're on there workin ur little sexy ass off! Keep doin it big. We all want to see more from you.
I thought your design was better. It looked neat, together, sharp and was something I’d actually wear as opposed to the winning design.
That tarot reading was off the charts and I don't mean in a good way.
I am still pulling for you . you have done chattanooga well as well as yourself. all the best to you.
Reco u got it going fam..desings are on point..if i was a sister i would buy all your clothes..keep it up..luv to meet u in person and chat..good luk..
Hurry up and win this show so you can get House of Chappelle all over the country, sugar! I'm so proud of you! - Friend of J.James and Cris

Am a young artist from africa Ghana who likes drawing alot. l ended up in this state to futhur my passion for fashion......guess what according to me watching you win all the time is what l look up top all the time and l see that happen everyday regardless of what anyone says about ur outfit, they look like something l will draw all the time. am soo happy l can actually see myself meeting you someday because l would definately love to work with someday too.l love you Reco and keep doing what l believe you can do best.. because you are my role model now and you definately mean alot to me and also see you win.good luck with ur competition... am with you in prayers till you win.
Fabulous design i would really want to rock that outfit
its sexy and demand attention
you should have won
Reco your the best and just remember Micheal Angelo studyed under the best to get where he was going so just hang in there you can do it, I have hopes of you designing for me some day
Halston- not unfamiliar to you. Reco, have you ever seen the 70's movie, The Wiz? The costumes werecreated by Halston. The scene that features the most brilliant designs was when Dorothy and crew first arrives to Oz and the Wizard continued to chande the color of the day, so did each dancer's wardrobe. All of the pieces shown were what I wanted to grow up and wear! Be yourself and do the damn thing! Don't forget to channel the Foxy vintage styles from movies like Mahogany, The Wiz and the circle that fashion makes. You have seen it all, now do it better than ever.
Your design was awesome this week. I think slowing down was a smart move..it brought out your creative juices. I must say I was shocked to see Merlin go. Yes, his outfit wasn't exactly flattering by any means but Jean Paul's dress was absolutely hideous.
Reco I love your designs. At first I questioned your ability, but as the weeks have gone on your not to be messed with.I love you and good luck. Continue doing you!!!!!!!!!!!!
RECOOOO! I love your designs. You are one talented indiviual. Each week, I root for you & keep my fingers crossed. I am so proud of you and your work. Keep doing what you do best! Your work is the next BIG thing, like that design you created to match those black heels with the basket-like design....PHENOMONAL work. =] Good Luck Hunny!
Reco your amazing!! I knew on the first episode that you were going to win this bitch! I love your passion and attitude! you better work!
RECO, HANDS DOWN YOUR DESIGN WAS, IN MY OPINION MUCH BETTER THAN ANNA'S. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY LET HER WIN. THE DRESS WAS CUTE, BUT THE SUIT WAS FIERCE! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND KEEP REPRESENTING FOR THE SOUTH.
Reco, Your outfit in this last challenge was *stunning* -- both sensuous and sharp -- and I would buy it in a heartbeat. Your passion and talent are clear in every challenge. Whatever happens, I hope the exposure from The Fashion Show will push your career into the stratosphere! Wishing you the best, JR
Loved your pant suit! Elegant, sexy, modern, comfortable. It can be worn day or night, it looks timeless.
I can't wait to see you winning the final challenge!
the suit you made is so awesome! i really like the detail you put into your clothing. keep up the good work!
Reco's pours his heart out and expresses his pain and love and anger and bitterness, from what only reco knows but it pours out in his best work.
I would showcase any of his "true to reco" designs and would sell everyone.
Reco! Do you!
You were shorted this go around because your design was by far the best. The way the psychic spoke could have been interpreted any kind of way-that was just an excuse for them not to give you the win. Anyhoo, keep up the hard work. I can't wait to see you in the finals!
Reco, that is what your designs are papi, RRRRICO! You are the only reason I am watching every episode on pins and needles, cheering you on the whole way. Just know ,baby boy, you have much love out here, especially down here in the dirty dirty. Keep on doin' what you do, honey!
Reco baby, you are it no one better Anna's dress please a little of project runway in there, seen it done if you guys remember. How could that dress win over that suit? I want to purchase that suit and I know I'm not the only one tell me how can I get to buy that i went crazy when I saw it, joined this site to find it.You and Merlin was my reason to watch with him being gone the show will lose something but staying tuned for you dont even worry about Daniella boring A!! just brush her off your shoulders baby she's not going anywhere but in the trash right along with that sh!! she calls fashion.RECO BEST OF LUCK BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Reco, I love you and your designs. The pant suit was made with a broad audience appeal: sexy and covered as Isaac said. I hope to see your work in all markets one day soon. God Bless You and Yours.
Don't like your comments or attitude. You could do much better with a more pleasing personality. Designs are ok

Reco, Your designs are on the money. While I am not runway thin, I would wear your designs, my particular favorites are the black pants suit and the red not so Halston dress.
