Recommended Posts

I thought we were going to finally be rid of Sergio, but no, his mullet dress gets a pass. 😞

Looooved Shavi and Christian laughing about “clattering” Dayoung.

“She don’t even care.”

”And she’s the quiet one.”

Da'Young is Korean.

I can see people aren't understanding my question. Deyoung is the designer but if someone who is not of Korean descent wears it, is it appropriation? I'm thinking of the American girl who wore a beautiful kimono to her prom and was eviscerated on Instagram. I personally thought it was great (as did most of the Japanese/Chinese who posted in response)

Why have a challenge if there isn't going to be a consequence for not following the challenge?

I agree Victoria should've just been safe.

I kind of liked Nancy's jacket even more than Chelsey's, but plaid isn't really my thing, so the pants on Nancy's outfit weren't my favorite.

I might have more to say when I see the photo recaps. I always like getting a longer more detailed look to see if my first impressions match up with what I see in the photos.

I would rather wear the female version of a regular "letter jacket." Chelsea's looked a bit tent-like to me.

Victoria, having purchased the wrong shade of blue to represent Moldova, had to remain quiet or reveal her blunder.

Sergio's critic was spot-on: a Latina cliche from the 1950s. And having the models do his work for him? No.

Delvin showed a major lack of imagination this week. He not only chose a childish, even petulant, approach by writing tailor's notes onto the garment; he used the exact same "hot pink and black and white stripes" colors as in the previous week! No-one mentioned that!

So, does Sergio hand out a study guide with every 'political statement' -- er, I mean dress -- he sells? And does he insist the client read it out at every public appearance?

And who's going to know what those names mean? Would you recognize them offhand? I wouldn't. And what a fun party that would be! "Whose names are those on your dress, dear?" "Oh, six children who died at the border. Are there any more cocktail weenies?"

And if he's such a great designer, why does he consistently make that curvy, cute model look so dumpy and sad? Most of that dress could have come straight out of the "Lucy & Desi Go to Cuba" episode.

I liked Victoria's outfit but it would be more appropriate for an avant garde challenge. Yes, she should have been safe. I really liked Brittany's -- she embraced her background. DaYoung's was gorgeous.

Okay, watched (most) of the show after recording it last night.

All I could think when Victoria's onsie came out was that it looked like a bad costume for Star Trek, circa 1970-something. Body hugging, sexist (and this is my boob...!) and unwearable for virtually any normal human.

And I seriously doubt that it was made out of doubleknit but you never know.

Sergio is SUCH an ass. Even when he’s making a cool, important statement, he’s too special to be bothered by Christian.  Grr.  oh&also cant do his own embroidery 🙄

 

He didn't make an effective statement.  You couldn't read the names on the dress.   Then it was a butt ugly dress, which further dragged his attempt at a statement down.   That cut out in the front was probably an attempt to make it "fashion foward" (whatever that means) but it ended up looking like he ran short of the ruffle fabric.   How long is he going to skate by?  Either of the other two men with him in the bottom have produced better dresses this season than Sergio.  They should have stayed.

I was happy with a win by either Dayoung or Chelsey.  Both did a great job of meeting the goal of the challenge and in doing something interesting and personal.   Chelsey's letter jacket coat was fun and young and would have a strong niche audience.  It reminded me of Beyonce's salute to HBCU's at Coachella in 2018.   Classic made hip.    Dayoung's jacket was gorgeous, both in her choice of fabric and in the design and fit.  It will have a strong audience, too.  I'd buy that and wear the heck out of it.  Over a dress.  Over skinny black pants.  Heck, over a pair of jeans.  I'd live in that jacket.  I see the letter jacket coat is for sale today $385.   A bit expensive maybe?  I hope Dayoung's jacket is the fan favorite and it up for sale, too.  I wouldn't pay that much, though.

No, the jacket isn't derived from a religious or otherwise sacred design.  Nothing about it insults or degrades the culture from which it comes.   The wearer wouldn't be trying to pretend to be Korean.

For me, that was the major fail of his attempt to make a statement. You aren't making a statement if people don't know what it is. Even from close range, the judges couldn't tell what it was. During the runway show, Karlie asked if Brandon could tell what was written on the skirt because she couldn't read it. If kind of defeats the purpose of your message if people can't read it or tell what it's supposed to be.

Normally I find it just bitter grapes when one contestant bitches about another one receiving constant praise. But when Brittany was backstage going off on the judges' hardon for Victoria all I could think was "YES! YES! YES!"

No, I still think it's bitter grapes :)  Brittany is eaten alive with jealousy that Victoria is the judges' favorite and I love watching a mean girl get cut down to size because Brittany clearly feels like she should always be in the top.  And it seems rather cruel whenever Brittany makes fun of Victoria's accent or her mispronouncing words--take off your false eyelashes and get some compassion.

That being said, I have no problem with Victoria being in the top again because like the judges said, the woman can sew and her clothes look well done.  Contrast that with Shavi who has great ideas but he can't always execute them because he's chosen the wrong fabric.

I also loved the judges' calling out Sergio on his political designs and that if he truly wants to get his message across, he needs to make better clothes and not fake cry on the runway

Sergio gets worse every week.  His attitude and designs are on a downward slope, and I’m hoping his days are numbered.  That dress was a mess.  The styling was awful.  His poor model looked like a sad, stereotype of a 30’s Latina Betty Boop by way of 50’s Lucy Ricardo.  The silhouette was horrendous.  His message was completely lost and made him look opportunistic IMO.  As others have noted, it’s as if he figured he would be safe if he paraded an emotionally/politically charged topic in front of the judges.  If they dissed him, then they would be heartless, racist monsters.  Thank goodness the darker haired judge spelled out the separation of his message and his half-assed attempt to convey it.

I can barely sew a button on, but I know I could have interpreted Sergio’s message better in a garment.  I get his family connection to cotton, so maybe a stark, all white cotton dress, inspired by Mexican traditions.  Add red accents to represent the “blood” of immigrants’ struggles to make better lives for themselves and their kids. But not that lacy material he chose for the red.  Maybe use blood red embroidered flowers (or appliqué them from another fabric) around the hem (or ‘border’), with six loose, tear-shaped petals, scattered so look like they are floating up and away from the hem. 

Baffled by the Victoria adoration.  Yes, she can sew and do impeccable tailoring, but most of her designs are better suited for space aliens once NASA establishes an outpost on Mars.

I have been meh with most of Brittany’s designs, but I really liked her Western inspired outfit.

I could understand where Sergio was coming from with the design and the names of the children in the garment - if it was any other designer but him.   

I  understood where Sergio was coming from with the names of the children, but while his intentions were pure, this was not the challenge for that.  Besides the fact that his dress was just fugly, it was also a pop-up sale challenge.  Most people are not going to want to wear a dress with names embroidered on it, unless it is a very famous brand or designer.  So, because of the political statement and the explanations that would have to go along with the garment, I don't think the dress is very "sellable".  And, as I said, the dress was NOT fashionable, flattering or even interesting.  (And, the embroidery was shoddy and child-like-I remember doing "embroidery" like that when I was about 8-10 years old with a large needle and yarn.)

I can’t with Sergio. His whole thing this episode felt really exploitative. It did not feel natural at all, it was like he was using the story of the kids to prop up himself as a designer and it came across really icky. Like he thought the judges wouldn’t be able to auf him because that would be like they were against the kids or something. His tears felt fake as well. Gross. 

I don't understand Sergio.  He claims his customer is the high-end, over 40 crowd with money.  I somehow cannot see anyone in that particular demographic that wears high-end, semi-couture ball gowns that he claims he makes, wearing a 1950's Betty Boop dress with red lace overlay  and embroidered muslin that makes a political statement.

If pushed, Nancy could have claimed those plaids were reflective of Scottish heritage or something.   Or maybe New England preppie.  There are stories she could have created.  We really didn't get to hear her on the runway pitch it, though.

I like both Delvin and Shavi, although both had problems this week.   They're more talented and interesting than Sergio by far.

Victoria's 'don't hate me for being so wonderful and talented'- interesting variation on 'humble bragging'. I laughed at Geoffrey telling her to make her hair bigger.

Brittany went too far with the cowboy boots and hat, but that dress was cute.

Dayoung's fabric was gorgeous, and I liked the front of the jacket, but it was too bulky and lumpy in back. Although in Korea, they do use some heavier/quilted fabrics because it's a cold climate.

Chelsey's jacket made Thijin look like she has no neck. I also didn't get why a letter jacket = education.

Victoria definitely knows fit.  Those pants hugged the model's curves perfectly.  I think she was in the top just for the judges to applaud her fit.  I am curious to see what happens if she gets a plus-sized model.

Chelsey's look could have won the Dapper Dan streetwear challenge and was the most saleable look in the show this week. Who would try to mass market Victoria's look? (the gorgeous fit on those pants not withstanding).

Also loved watching every, time,  the models paraded into the workroom; each one also worked hard to sell the looks on the runway with flair and dramatic poses..

In challenges like this one, I wish that all of the contestants would get critiqued by the judges. Yes, that would take time away from workroom/apt drama, calls with family and shopping in Mood. When the designers produce something that is intended to be personal, I'd like to see the judges respond to all of them. There were some interesting designs and stories that, IMO, received short shrift. Instead, we get lots of time with Sergio and his self-important musings.

I agree that Delvin and Shavi are more interesting/talented than Sergio. I also like Marquis' style and hope to see more from him.

Loved Delvin's smirk when Sergio said all his designs are political. Lmaoooo. I remember Sergio saying this a few episodes back and Tyler asked him to his face how his design that week was political and thus the Tyler love started. Haha

I'd love to know what the designers are scored on and how they are added up because Elaine and guest judge did not like Victoria's design and Karly said that although she made it into the top it was not a hit with everyone. So... 2 lower scores plus 3 higher scores got her into the top over 5 so-so scores with Nancy, Marquis or Brittany? I don't get it.

But Nancy wasn't in the top 3, so she wasn't being rewarded for not following the exact spirit of the challenge. Victoria was in the top 3 and when asked, she didn't even explain her supposed reasoning for making the garment the way she did - something about the blue coloration. Of course that also meant that she didn't have to admit that she might've chosen the wrong blue (which maybe she should have researched ahead of time), but in that case, it looked like she was being ingenuous. I'm not going to say that she pretended not to understand the judges so that she didn't have to admit it, but really what did she have to lose by explaining it? They weren't going to take her out of the top 3.

I understand that there might have been a language barrier, but knowing what the challenge was, she maybe should have been ready to explain her design. What if the judges had put her on the bottom (for making something not in the spirit of the challenge, for example)? She should have been ready to say what her thought process had been concerning the color and admit what happened.

By just not addressing it, it appeared like she was just ignoring the judges' challenge and going "eh, I'll just make whatever I want, and they'll like it anyway, so who cares if I don't follow the rules." That the judges did just imply basically "who cares if others followed the challenge and Victoria didn't, I was surprised, and that's all that counts," is not a good precedence, in my opinion. And it handicaps others who did try to follow the challenge even if they would rather have made a 1970s Star Trek cat suit, too.

True and maybe that explains her choice of plaid, which is a risky choice in a one day challenge - because as Nancy said she had to make sure the pattern matched up. But yes, we didn't get to hear her pitch it. It could be that maybe it was something she would like to have worn when she was young, because she saw something like that in her surroundings growing up and wished she could wear it also.

(Though was there an implication of Italian heritage, also? I need to rewatch that part of the episode. I think red and white checks are sometimes reminiscent of Italian restaurants, but green is also a prominent color, so if so, the green might have been a nod to some Italian heritage. I thought that I remembered green anyway - hopefully I didn't remember that wrongly?)

I really wanted Sergio to go home with that abomination.  I hated the dress and his IMHO fake political statement.  Using the names of those kids on a garment you know will be available for purchase is beyond the pale.  Someone (Bravo, 19th Amendment, Sergio himself possibly) would be profiting off of that statement if Sergio won.  I highly doubt any of these entities would seek out the parents of the deceased children and give them their cut.  Not to mention, what kind of facility are the clothes being made in?  What country?  Are the workers being properly paid for their time?   

I believe fashion is art and art is political, but mass production of this kind of political statement does not sit well with me.  If this was just a design challenge or a commission for Sergio, then I would have no problem with it.  

I am applauding wildly over here. Cosign 100%. Excellent point about the exploitation of tragedy for profit, and further exploitation of garment workers, potentially. Sergio wants to be the socially conscious designer? But he came across as opportunistic, even cynical. Bah. He's a showboat, and full of shit. He should be ashamed.

When they announced the safe designers I felt like I was in some sort of bizarro world.  I was CERTAIN they were going to be on top.  I loved all four.  I wonder if none were on top because this was a flash sale challenge and so the winner had to be a garment that would be inexpensive to reproduce?

I loved Nancy's look best, and thought she and Brittany and Marquise would be the top 3. Nope. I don't know fashion, I guess.

I will not say that I don't believe that Sergio is genuinely moved and devastated by the treatment of immigrants at the border, as we all should be. But his weeping on the runway looked rehearsed and disingenuous. It doesn't help that he's such a douchebag, with such a...punchable face.

So sad to see Shavi go.

 

I thought Christian would save him

When they announced the safe designers I felt like I was in some sort of bizarro world.  I was CERTAIN they were going to be on top.  I loved all four.  I wonder if none were on top because this was a flash sale challenge and so the winner had to be a garment that would be inexpensive to reproduce? 

This is why I dislike the whole flash sale concept. It means that the top garments are always going to be things that are relatively simply, not multiple pieces or made with complex technique, so they can be mass produced for not a lot of money, rather than what's the best design. I much preferred when they had a single commerce-oriented challenge per season (winning look sold at Banana Republic, Macys, etc.) for that reason.

I don't object to the flash sale concept.  I just object to them being told about it after they have designed, selected fabrics, and started making their garments.  Knowing that it will be a flash sale should inform their design and fabrics.

Poor Shavi - he got the wrong fabric and it just kept going from bad to worse.

I liked Marquis and Brittany's designs a lot.
