S16.E12: There’s Snow Business like Sew Business

Recommended Posts

Quote

The runway is converted into a Winter Wonderland as the designers are tasked with creating a winter-themed look that will decide who goes to NY Fashion Week and who gets left out in the cold. Guest judge is Katie Holmes.

And did you know MargarIta is from an island? 

Yes, and she had to swim over, with sharks and everything, and with one arm tied behind her back.  <siiiiiggghhhh>

When did the show become anti-fur, I wonder.  I know Kara Saun's collection way back in season 1 was pretty heavy on fur.  Maybe when they moved to Lifetime?  I dunno, I'm not really surprised that the show has that stance, I'm just a little surprised that in this day and age a designer on this show would be given the budget to afford it AND actually consider using it.

This challenge seems so tailor-made for Brandon's aesthetic that I'm actually going to hazard a guess that this is the challenge where he winds up on the bottom.

You know, I don't actually hate Margarita, I don't think she sucks as a person, but holy hell she is annoying.

How does Margarita not know she can't use fur?  Granted, I, and other viewers I'm sure, probably didn't know that, but I'm sure it's in the rules that are laid out for them at the beginning of the season.  Like not taking supplies out of the workroom, lol.

Amended: Tim (and I guess everyone else on the show) apparently never told the contestants they were a non-fur show.  So Margarita is still annoying and the producers are still eyeroll-inducing, aka, nothing new in the end.

I wish by this point in the contest Tim didn’t consult with the designers   We should be able to see what the actual designers can come up with on their own.  Both he and the judges have given them criticisms and suggestions now they need to use that info and their own ideas for this final garment.

When did this turn into The Margarita Show?  Enough already!

So far...Kenya’s fabric is awful, Brandon is doing Brandon, not sure about Ayana...or Kentaro.  I can’t be bothered with little miss faux fur.

Is Margarita making a dress for Wilma Flintsone? But you know she's from an island and doesn't make winter clothes. (How many times has she said this)? Staaawp!

Does Marg really not know how the judges examine each piece, each seam etc? This is the second time, at least, she has hoped the judges won't notice something. Trust me, Zac will notice.

That dress Margarita made is hideous!!  And the coat is a throwaway.  She'd have been better off with her first look.

Kentaro's looks luxurious, yet dingy.

Can someone explain to me why the hell you'd wear a midriff-exposing outfit in winter?

At least she had a coat over it. I kept thinking Kentaro's model would have awfully cold legs! Some tights would have fixed that.

Call me crazy, but Brandon's look was actually adorable.  And I liked Kentaro's and Ayana's, too.  I'm not convinced Kenya's was great, but holy hell...Margarita's is a joke up there!

I would be shocked if Brandon was on the bottom because I usually abhor his fashions, but this one is halfway decent. Still wouldn't wear it, but I see the design and style in it at least. Everything else he's made just baffles me and I call bs on Heidi and those guest judges who fawn over his stuff because if they wore it they'd be on the worst dressed lists. 

 

I don't get why fur is not allowed since I'm pretty sure they've used leather, am I wrong? Are cows killed kindly to make leather?

I live in the Midwest, winter is coming (Jon Snow voice), trust me, you don't wear crop tops and shorts when the temperature hits single digits. 

Well you take off the coats and you're in Texas. 

I really liked Ayana's coat but what was with that circus jumper? Yikes! And I hated the styling with the hat. It just brought it down.

 

I was disappointed in Kenya. I usually love her stuff, but I thought the coat was pretty standard that you could find a lot of places. And I have no problem with mixing colors and patterns, but I wasn't into the shirt at all and I didn't get the combo.

Yeah, I amended my opinion as the show went on - the coat is great, but I stand by my opinion that there's way too much torso exposed for a winter look.

I wonder...as others have mentioned...what makes leather okay and fur not okay?  Because it doesn't make sense to me...neither allows the animal to live.

Zac Posen is the voice of reason.  I'm smelling a last-minute challenge for the ladies to redo their work, a la the twins from earlier in the season and Uli/Josh from All-Stars 2
