Default Project Runway - new season

The new season starts this week, and I decided to do something different.
I went and looked at the designer's portfolios.

Some of these designers have already been on runways, have their own lines, and even sell their goods. Not sure how I feel about this, but I though this show was all about finding someone new.

Here are my favorites - in no particular order:

Carrie
Nzinga
Kiniokahokula

Korina and Tim make great coats, so not sure how they will do.

There is one designer, that I'm not sure how he even made it on the show, and one that may already have a "big head", hence his name starts with
THE.....

Lynn - did you get to watch? I watched this morning. Not sure why the gal won, I thought Char or Amanda should have. No problem with who went home, although
Mitchell - Mr. Big Head, should have, just because of his attitude.

She won for being out there and creative but I think Amanda should have won it was so well done and different.

Just watched and I thought "OMG she's the new Anya!" Weirdly out there that you have no clue what the judges are thinking. Though I like her portfolio.

And I would have voted off Mitchell over Jefferson. I don't get why he even made the first cut.

I have to say, I didn't like who went home last night. I thought the other person should have, just because it was all his idea and he wouldn't budge. If the others in the group had of done what they wanted and was a together look, maybe it would have turned out different. Ya just don't know.

I loved the straw dress, it looked like a fur coat, just as he wanted it to.

Kudos to the winner - I was wondering what they were going to do for the underdresses.

BIG THOUGHTS this week.

I thought Hernan should have gone. It was totally his idea.

I know we only see what the editors want us to see but I thought that Carrie did the right thing in defending herself and it wasn't childish at all. She (and Sandhya) were bullied into that look. I really really really liked Carrie's portfolio so I hope that maybe she will get a 2nd chance some time in the future because I really think they have a let a gem go in comparison to some of the others.

I liked Sandhya's original look. Shame Hernan and Carrie didn't take a moment to realize that the judges like Sandhya. From the judges commentary of the winning looks Sandhya would have been fine with her original look.

I didn't like the "blue" team's look - it looked bad 80's prom to me. Seriously it was like cheap bedazzling gone bad.

I also didn't like the fishscales, pleather and film team. Their look was messy too. I think they got the nod because they used more materials.

I thought that Heidi was incredibly harsh to Angela. I am slightly surprised she didn't walk out. I actually liked Angela's design. She has quite and ethereal aesthetic. I think if she had filled in the gaps with the straws they would have gone "Lady GaGa" all over it. She is suffering from time issues as well as a narrow vision. Again it was using a single element that probably was the main issue.

I actually thought Fade's was ok but probably would have won because of the number of items he used.

Sean's was just freaky amazing but I do wonder if he would have won.

I'm ok with the winning trio. I think Amanda really made them understand the challenge and they all agreed on what to be cohesive with and where to be out there.

I think the biggest problem with Hernan/Carrie is that they didn't respect the judges decision for the 1st challenge. And instead of seeing the opportunity of having a winner on the team saw it as a threat to their own standing and thus were always working defensively. Honestly, it does seem like the team that has the winner from the previous week traditionally has someone that goes home.

That said - Hernan should have gone home or Mitchell. I'm really ok with Mitchell going at any time. The Miami vibe is either OTT expensive or cheaper than cheap, hoochie. I think he borders on hoochie.

Not surprised at top or bottom and who went home - slightly surprised at Amanda being called out.

Not the one I wanted to win, but not upset about who went home.

Agree on Amanda - would they have sent her home??? She didn't have that bad of a look compared to the other bottom 3.

Thank goodness. And how do you keep calling someone a ****** and then get upset when she flips you. At least she wasn't false and didn't get up and hug him goodbye. Good Riddance - most successful artists (designers) can see the flaws in their work, he honestly thought that was better than others? he needs a reality check and to keep blaming the fabric as if it had dry rot. I'm sure the production assistants double checked those suits and they were cleaned and the best from a bad lot was chosen, his wasn't any worse than any other.

TBH I thought Fade should have been top. I gasped when that came down the runway. I didn't think, oh look an old suit remade which I did with quite a few others.

I didn't think Alexander used enough suit fabric (or was I missing it because he had large swathes of fabric) and I didn't think he was top 3.

Amanda's look I am ok with. I think she embraced the challenge the best.

Char's design was almost hoochie.

Emily's I was really disappointed in. I get the nod to the suit but honestly I didn't think it worked.

Kini can work it and understands how to make an outfit look fantastic in the time allotted. I didn't think this look was innovative enough, but to get boring pinstripes into the top 3 when others are working with loud fabrics - kudos. I could see that dress in any of the fabrics that were available.

Korina's I liked. I liked the clean aesthetic of the look and how much suit material she used. I did wonder if there wasn't "enough" to it - it reminded me of 80s Vogue a bit.

Kristine - focused too much on the jacket but I do get that that probably got her through because that was so well made.

Mitchell - I honestly thought it was going to be a train wreck, pleather, clear vinyl and polyester blue suit, what could go wrong? - He did make it work and I was glad that he could see that Sandhya tried her best to match people to material.

Samantha - now how many ideas can we get on an outfit? one sleeve - check, pleating - check, safety pins - check, bubble skirt- check, funky collar - check, flap pocket - check, suit bar under butt so they remember I made this from a suit - check.

Sean - I could see what they meant about Sean's. I'm surprised that Tim didn't say that in the workroom. Would boring Sean been in the bottom?

Well I won't be watching this until tomorrow as my TV is out. Just read that Lindsey Vonn is on as guest judge - to put it mildly I am really not a fan and wish she wouldn't be on my tv. Hope it doesn't spoil the show for me. I wonder if it is an indication that this is ski wear/active wear/golf wear or just another outlet for her to be on my tv randomly.

Not the winner I would have picked, but it must have been because it was "different"
than a normal outfit would be. I liked Kiki's better. Goodbye finally to the Mr. !

I'm glad green gal stayed, as I have liked her other outfits, but that green was no way
an emerald green - at least not in my eyes.

I think I would have liked Amanda's more if the beading/trim didn't go down the bottom half of the dress - it was pretty on top.

I loved the winning dress; it was modern and just really cool. I didn't really like Amanda's...I thought the brown was too blah. I think the Mr. who went home was overwhelmed; he just is not ready for the big leagues yet.

Alexander was lucky others were worse. No excuse for cheek showing especially when they had extra money for material.

Amanda was true to her and Heidi and I think that is why it was top 3. Not for me but I can see Heidi wearing it.

Char was a bad bridesmaid dress - bodice ruching was old fashioned, but I did like the flow of the skirt.

Emily that was just hoochie bad.

fage, I liked his. The hard but soft lines and flowing fabric.

Kini - loved it. Though I get the feeling he isn't doing anything "new" for him. Is he the first designer to play along at home and get his basics down?

Korina is lucky to stay in. 1st design in a happier fabric without snakeskin and she would have easily been safe.

Kristine I liked the sides. The rest was really bad.

Mitchell, yikes, it was bad.

Samantha, I liked the top and then it just was meh.

Sandhya, used the challenge the best, but I still expected more for that money.

Sean's was fun and flirty. I'm not surprised it won but I am surprised they went silly over it like no one had ever done it before.

And Lindsay Vonn irrelevant to the show? a true WTH.

Can't disagree with the result.


Alexander, too bulky. I liked the concept but it was a bit too old. If less bulky and chiffon instead of lace and maybe an ombre into the color (though could have looked like a wine stain).

Amanda - loved it. Amazed she was able to work so well with the personality issues.

Char again too hoochie - it could have looked bad and still been immaculately constructed, but that was awful.

Emily I liked it. Guess I'm a bad cliche 15 year old goth wannabe

fage, I liked his. Gorgeous but a little too conservative for a bride's reception dress.

Kini - loved it. Should have won. That dress was uber gorgeous.

Korina it was ok. It looked great on the runway but she is so negative.

Samantha, ok but not quite sophisticated enough.

Sandhya, I liked the bodice, but the construction on the skirt was beyond awful. Needed to be more color than yellow.

Sean's - gorgeous but didn't deserve the win.

These wedding dresses looked a lot better than some! Toilet Paper Wedding Gowns So Pretty, You'd Never Use Them To Wipe
