I can only think he is in for novelty value. Though I did think it was funny that Zach recognized the fabric as some he ordered and sent back to Mood. I think the "sustainability" is his cause of the moment as he isn't well thought out about it. Just look at his own clothing. He isn't wearing sustainability clothing. I have a friend that is nearly vegan, and doesn't wear leather except for steel toed work shoes. I also don't think "sustainability" lends itself to Project Runway because it doesn't matter what he designs if he can't find the right fabric that was discarded. And don't even get me talking about the no makeup the first week... why did he not ask their policies at that point?
Yeah can't wait for him and Sandro to go.
Sandro is just a mean person and I agree with the stripper chic comment. Honestly who designs an outfit for a women with her va jay jay hanging out!!! Just because women aren't men doesn't mean there aren't things that need to be covered there.
Really like Sue and Bradon so far.
Did you get the feeling that if Kahindo had added another layer of maybe a long sheer skirt she would have been kept in?
I don't think Kate will win. Although her dress this week was spectacular, it was "her challenge". Could totally see Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Lawrence in it.
And Angela did deserve to go home for basically making a parachute out of a parachute.
Wasn't Miranda's outfit (top 3 but demoted to bottom 4 first week) for both weeks basically the same? Will have to look again.
I missed the first week, but was able to watch the rerun/recap last night.
Geez--what a bunch of bee-itchy queens. It's this aspect of the show that I can't stand. Between the Russian guy and the Southern guy and their potty mouths, the show will be nothing but a continuous BLEEP.
Timothy should have been eliminated twice by now. LOL. Not only are his designs and execution horrible; he doesn't know the first thing about "sustainability." I think he's just looking for an angle to help him with the judges.
I was surprised by last night's elimination, and don't agree with it.
I don't understand Timothy staying either. Both his outfits were horrible. Just because K made a short dress??? Yes, the print was horrible, but with the overlay was much better.
I loved it when those 2 guys were going at it in the sewing room and the deaf guy just took off his hearing aid.
As much as I like Sue - I am already tired of her not knowing how to use the machines. Knowing PR always uses Brother machines, if I didn't have one, I would find a way to learn the basics of the machine.
All we need now is a team challenge. HA

I am wondering if all of the applicants for the show have to prove that they can cry before they are selected for the season. I know being a little unstable adds to the drama, but it also takes away from the designing. What did you think about the Yoplait Frozen Yogurt Unconventional Challenge last night?
Happy with last night's outcome; tired (already!) of all the sniping and BS.
Sandro is a tool. Wouldn't he and Poison Ivy (of a few years back) make a great pair? But only if she listened to him, which I doubt would happen. LOL
It's been years since I've been to a carnival or fair. Apparently bright blue and yellow are the "in" colors for midway prizes (in plastic/nylon?). I don't know what some of those designers were thinking going for that type of material and colors to work with. The winners were smart in terms of what they chose.
Not going to highlight as I have taped it to watch in the morning. I've managed to get my computer issues sorted yesterday and watch last week's show.
Well isn't Tim just a precious little crazy unicorn.
So far I'm not into anyone's aesthetic. Did anyone think Kate threw the accolades to her partner to not be the frontrunner?
OK is Alexandria Geena Davis' love child?
The weird thing is I didn't think Tim's bolero was that awful... I think it had to be an accumulation of work and his general attitude.
And yes I was fed up with Sandro in episode 2 and am really over his attitude. Did they cast this season for drama? I liked last season better, it seemed to have a higher level of overall talent. Seems this season is quirky and drama...
Thought Dom might win and thought Miranda might be seeing the ax.
I had kind of pegged Miranda to go home, also. The emerald green top was awful--cropped or not--and she barely incorporated the bowtie concept (well, the entire outfit was pretty uninspiring and referential). Or else the gal who made the long black dress with the bowtie "exoskeleton." I figured they were the bottom 2. But I guess we'll never know.
Based on the previews, it looks as if Ken takes over as the bee-itchy diva. So I'm sure the next show will have no shortage of "drama."
I had this vision of doing a classic silhouette color blocked dress and starting at the hem the same bow tie in varying degrees of being tied until completely tied (or looking like it) at the top which would have probably been the waist, making a right angle triangle with the right angle being on the left side of the body... soo yeah, they would have probably thought is Southern Boutique chic more than runway.
And that is probably why I absolutely adored Dom's creation. I knew they were going to like it.
Bradon's I thought they would either love it or hate it.
I was ok with the exoskeleton...but agree it didn't quite work.
Looks like Alexandria and Ken melt down next week. I liked him when he stood up to Sandro but the outtakes from next week aren't flattering.
And though I totally agree about the lace top by Jeremy I did think it was beautifully made.
It pains me that every year there seem to be so many contestants that just aren't up runway ready.
Also with the total spend card, are they allowed to use fabric/materials from previous weeks if they didn't present it on the runway?
I thought Alexander's rainbow peter pan collar wasn't inspired.
Karen's blue polka dot ensemble I just kept wondering what the heck is going on the front of the trousers.
For the life of me I can't work out how Sandro has made it as far as he has in fashion with that much need for validation and his abrupt attitude. Glad they sent him on his way, I was getting concerned he was going to get violent.

Ken is a tool. He'll probably crash in a ball of flames like Sandro.
Speaking of which: I don't know why they bothered to bring Sandro back for that half-hearted apology to the others. I suppose just for "the drama." But if I were the other designers, I wouldn't have given him one minute of my time or attention.
After having seen the editor's choices, wouldn't surprise me if Sandro insisted on coming back. He has such an ego he probably thought they were bawling their eyes out at his departure and couldn't bear to continue unless he said a few words.
Maybe Sandro figured he better try to mend some of the bridges he burned.
Think about it: Even if a contestant doesn't win Project Runway, I bet s/he could get letters of recommendation from people associated with the show, even from Tim Gunn if they make it farther in the competition. But if the person had the personality of Cruella deVille (or her male equivalent), what is Tim going to say?
Even with Sandro's apology, it would still be difficult to write a good letter of recommendation for him, especially in terms of his ability to get along with others.
