So pleased Tessa was eliminated. Wabi sabi, okay. I think there's got to be a better way to do that. In one episode, she did acknowledge that there's a way to do unfinished hems so that they don't fray. And perhaps there are some fabrics where unfinished works better than others. Like not chiffon. Her excuses were tedious. As were her designs, in my opinion!
Hester....I've seen a couple of posters criticize her sewing, which hasn't bothered me. I think she's made some really cute jackets. I think she lost it a bit on this challenge-I liked her skirt a lot, the top was terrible. I wish she'd put a cute jacket or cape on top of it. I like her use of color, I like how over the top she is. I'm not going to wear it, but I think there are plenty of kids and club kids who would be into it. True, they are not going to buy that at Bergdorf.
I love Sebastian. The language thing is huge and something we really take for granted. Watching him break into such rapid Spanish with the designer made it click for me. He's doing this challenge in a second language, it's like dancing in high heels, backward. I love his clothes and would love for him to win.
I thought Bisme would get more attention this challenge-I really liked his dress and the environment. The judges were not so wowed, though? That said, I kind of feel like he might win the whole thing. I like his vision, and he seems to make everyone he designs for look good.
I thought Garo deserved the win! I loved the moving peplum. So cool. He is a nice blend of staying true to what he does, but still listening to the judges and growing a bit within the competition. Which is what Tessa couldn't do, to bring this post full circle!
