Couldn't post this yesterday because we lost power so no computer. Couldn't even knit last night in candle light since I have enough trouble working on this shawl in full light (hey I'm not Laura Wilder!!!).
Anyways the long awaited show .... who gets kicked off. The challenge was to design a 3 piece outfit for INC. Each designer sketched and pitched their design. 4 designers were selected as team leaders and they selected 2 designers to work with them. So 4 teams of 3 people. Ok. They shop, they sew, they collaborate, and they go back to the apartments at the end of day 1.
There's a problem. Keith has pattern books in his personal stuff. Pattern books are not allowed since they can give a designer a little extra knowledge in construction. In addition Keith went AWOL and used the internet; both are against the rules of the show. So Tim Gunn arrives and Keith packs his bags and leaves asap.
I think Keith's leaving showed the other designers how the production company believes in giving everyone a level playing field. Keith was the designer with the most personality, good or bad, so having him leave was losing a lot of interesting sound clips.
Day 2 arrives without Keith leaving his team of Alison and Jeffrey to finish the outfit. Those two did an amazing job pulling things together and getting the job done.
Runway show .... the winner was Angela's team in spite of Angela. I must say she was a great team leader because she listened to her team members, Laura and Michael, and didn't poof anything and cover it with those nasty fabric yo-yo things.
At the bottom was Robert and Bonnie. Robert's outfit looked a little frumpy from the front with a slit up the back almost to the model's ass. Bonnie's was just sad. So bye, bye Bonnie.
So it should be interesting to see where the show goes from here. No real dynamic personalities from what I can see in the bunch. Jeffrey with the cutting remarks is even being nicer since he actually has had to work with the other designers a couple times and is beginning to see they have skills too.
