They just finished the runway show. I didn't like much of any designers collection and was really disappointed with Ashley's. Down right horrible

Oh well. There's always next year.

Off to bed. This went much too long and there's work tomorrow. Hope you are happier than I am right now. See you tomorrow

Hi, moo.  Not happy.  I actually preferred Edmond's to any of the others.  His desligns inspire me to go on a diet.  lol.

I think the judges were happy to jump on the plus sizes, though I found half of Ashley's clothes matronly, the other half too revealing for chunky legs and midriffs.  There's definitely a market for sizes 12 and up. At least her models looked happy to be there.  I noticed that many of the other models looked miserable or angry.  What was up with that?

Bottom line:  There's nothing in Ashley's line I would wear - even if I were young.

The extra half hour was so obviously added for more commercials.  Six minutes of show, followed by eight minutes of commercials.   That was ridiculous.  I thought the guy from Lexus was going to give them (at least, the winnter) the cars.  Who gave a crap to drive up in one, then give it back?  Cheap commercial for Lexus.

I think Project Runway jumped the shark last night.  I liked Ashley earlier in the season but for me she fell flat on her face weeks ago.  I was pulling for Kelly and Edmund. 

I don't know where Heidi got that Ashley's collection was the most cohesive other than nobody - young or old, plus size or not - would wear those clothes so they were cohesive in that respect.  They were dowdy and matronly.  If any one of the looks had been created by any other designer during the season that designer would have been sent home.  They were too interested in acting like they cared for the plus size market.  I'm not plus sized but if I was I would be offended they think I would wear those clothes.

The commercials for Project Runway Junior turned me off.  I hope I find something else to do on Thursdays now.

I won't be watching the juniors either.  I'm kind of saturated with the runway right now.

Agree, BSkeptical. The judges were hard to have a plus sized designer win the prize. Ashley did fall flat on her face in concept and cohesion. I am a plus sized female and i would NOT wear what she sent down the runway.  Can she even make a complete shirt or a skirt/dress that you can't see through. That was underwear wrapped in lace and chiffon !! And those outrageous head pieces !


Liked Candaces black leather coat and black & red dress. Would absolutely wear either one of them. Was hoping Edmond would win but he caved. Had just that one black dress at the beginning of his runway show and Kelly was to monochrome. It all looked the same with glittered shoes.

Am usually pretty okay with the outcome of this show a few disappointments along the way but, still pretty okay with it. This year though I'm not going to forget. The judges got it wrong for sure.
Singly, I won't be watching runway Jr. either. Doesn't appeal to me

Is anyone watching? 

I thought they got it right with two of the top three.  But that red and blue/white tent?  I was in agreement with the one who said it was cartoon-ish.  Not an "everyone" dress.

Definitely not an everyone dress for sure. 

I agree with everyone about last season, what the hell were they thinking in picking her as the winner? Her clothes were hideous.

Even Tim Gunn has spoken out about how awful they were.

Anyway, PR is must see TV for me on Thursdays!

I really liked the swim suit that one.  Classy. 

Don't remember most of the designer's names.  Too early.  Only Erin, Roberi, and Cornelius (but only because he's annoying.)

The blue print everyone raved over was meh to me.  The print didn't show well over the tv and the cover looked like a nightie.  Heidi liked the white bottom and I thought it looked tacked on to make it longer.

The only things I liked were Mah Jing's vest and Lauren's leather jacket.  The other six designs were crap.  I was astounded when "Button" team won.  The judges loved that hideous yellow and mauve coat!  To me, the "embellishment" looked like something even a teen would find craftsy.

I was really sorry to see Alex go.  The mauve tube dress with the chest-hair (lol) that Brik and Hee-Haw made should have been the loser - but they were on the winning team.  Go figure.

Not sure if anyone is reading these, but is it just me or are this season's group of designers basically underwhelming?

I haven't been reading until you posted.  I don't remember many of the past designers.  I don't focus on them and mostly just like to see how they make the clothes and see the final products.  I watched the short recaps of the 10 most dramatic moments, whatever they call it, and I don't know all those people.  But I think you're right.  Not a lot of big personalities and then not a lot of cat fights as in past seasons, it seems.   The ones that stand out to me are the twins that are constantly helping each other and then run around like chickens with their heads cut off lol.   It's good that their work stations were physically separated last time, at least.  I haven't finished watching the last episode.  I'm interested to see how far the fashion design teacher gets this season.

I like that the whole season is about one size does not fit all.  I don't know much about fashion design and I had heard that designers notoriously like to design only for the lower end of the spectrum.  It's nice to see the show is trying to get them used to designing for all sizes, in line with the current trend out there.

I wish I could design and make my own clothes. Very Happy

I watched the rest of this week's episode.  I didn't like the winning design very much, particularly those sleeves that cover the hands.  I liked the gold and black dress that Liris was wearing the most.  I don't like the red one with the black ruffles very much.  It reminds me of a pirate outfit.  


I guess my favorite outfit of the season would be from the first episode, the white dress with the pockets, although I'd prefer it in a different color.

I guess the designs are underwhelming this season so far.

I loved the black and gold dress, she looked sexy as hell in it. I was not fond of the winning design at all and yes those twins are annoying and I was hoping they would send one of them home.

I think part of my problem with this season is that usually by now I have a favorite to root for and I've usually seen a few outfits that made me go damn, that is beautiful.

Not many of those moments at all so far, most of the time it's WTF?  Giggle

Oh, I see.  I haven't had a favorite designer in past seasons.  I just had favorite outfits or designs from what I recall.  So far, I'm hoping to see more great designs from the winner of the last challenge.  

I have sometimes been surprised at what designs the judges like.  Maybe I don't have a real eye for fashion.  But for example, the dress with the brown straps or whatever it's called going down the dress.  It reminded me of the car wash station where you drive your car through. lol.  They had to work with recycled materials, but still.... 





I love the outfit with the green halter top.  The judges actually liked that one.
