The Fashion Show: Team Reco The Villain
The problem is, except for the first one with the black t-shirts, none of the mini-challenges have been particularly worthy. This one was no exception. Watching people frantically fix hems and sew buttons doesn’t exactly make for scintillating television.
If this was Project Runway, we’d probably designate Reco as the villain of the piece, but in this situation, he’s not only right to be annoyed at all these people who can’t even make a pattern, let alone sew, he’s also one of the few entertaining personalities on the show. Let him throw as much shade as he wants. He’s got the talent to back it up and he livens up a relatively boring show.
For all our bitching about Heather, this was actually a valid question and exactly the kind of thing an instructor would ask in a design school setting.
And if you can’t answer that question, you need to examine why that is. Haven just got defensive about it when she should have devoted some thought to it. She might have been able to rethink her design if she had.
It’s not a bad design, from the front.
Y’know, now that we’ve had a chance to think about it, we don’t really hate this design all that much. It’s not as if that pannier silhouette is unheard of. In fact, it’s showing up on runways quite a bit lately.
We really try to avoid making too many comparisons to PR, but we can’t help thinking that Nina would have had his head for that. Instead of praising him, she would have put him in the bottom 3 just for failing to carry out the demands of the challenge.
Again, we like it; but it’s not a coat.
