Have any of you noticed in the blog world individuals who are taking on the challenges and posting them. They aren't necessarily sewing the challenge but showing their ideas…it's kind of fun.
Here's one I just came across: http://www.designcrushblog.com/2011/08/08/project-runway-challenge-2/
Okay so I generally don't like group challenges and this one was no exception. I didn't really care for any designs but it was a difficult challenge. I do think the winning design was very flowy on the runway and pretty from the waist down but I really liked Kimberly and Becky's design. Didn't they have the model with the wonky walk? That was seriously funny. I love PR.
Oh, yeah. What a Know-It-All Bert is turning out to be. I hope he can prove me wrong.
Cathe, I agree, I was confused as to what they all wanted. I imagined something grandiose, but the judges liked the more RTW. I found it mostly boring. I did like the winning design, but just cause it was so flowy and I like how they styled the model.
I also liked Kimberly and Becky's design, but didn't care for the chiffon number so much.
Bert, oh, Bert. I want to like him cause he feels like such an underdog, but he really makes it hard! And that outfit was Hideous! The girl that left, I felt bad for her cause she seemed like such a nice person, but didn't know how to cut on grain? Had never even heard of it, really? She was cast on the show to fail.
Now who's next to go??
Well Cathe.. I so enjoyed my first ever episode of Project Runway..
I cant remember the people by name, sorry.. But... I was really sorry for the way..the guy kept
insulting the girl for not knowing how to cut on a grain? [why not tell her how? duh...she is your partner,and your trying to win this thing?]. I thought he should have went home.. he was the one, that did all the doings.. She did the hat, and the judges liked it..but they made her go home???
the pants...........oh Lord.............. the zig zag ric rack looking pants.. It hurt my eyes to look at them..
They were awful.. That is who I would have chosen to go home.
But the black tutu looking outfit..was pretty bad too..
My favorite was the red.I think because it was so flowy..[and of course I love red]
Hopefully..next week, I can remember some names... and know more of what is going on..
I think Bert does have a lot of experience but he seems to be a bit bitter and yes the right person went home. I dont understand how you can get that far at project runway and dont know what grain is. I would expect that from the girl who has only been sewing for 3 months. I will say this project runway seems to have a mixture of talent which makes it good and intresting.
I'm a little fed up with all these crazy challenges. First the sleep wear challenge, then the pet store challenge and then the crazy stilts! Phew... I know that historically challenges have centered on creating clothing using unexpected and unique fabrication... but eeeee! lets get to some pretty!!! We should put our heads together and send PR some ideas!! I've got a thing about dresses. I'd love to see a wedding dress design challenge or evening wear glam.
Just a thought. Oh... and I don't even have a favorite designer yet and usually by the 3rd episode I do. Anyone have one particular designer they are cheering for?
