Season 12 This is another one with a great winner -- Dom Streater -- but a mixed bag along the way. It was frustrating to see Dmitry denied challenge wins for so much of the season, but he was rewarded in the end. The runway Bishme, Jamall, and Garo are in the top three. The workroom Sebastian is absolutely in love with the concept of having male models. So do Georgina and Priyanka, who wants to wear the mustard dress.
He looks great, even more twinkly-eyed than normal. Rolling An Unconventional Trip after the break Last week we lost Mah-Jing to an avant garde unconventional materials challenge; he didn't even cry! It could go either way, I love it when Cornelius goes formal, his tailoring is impeccable. Laurence is going as well, no surprise there. They have to create a second look. Besides Austin City Limits and that a psycho lives there: I don't know much. And two back to back? He just doesn't think you have time to do it all.
He roughs up his dress and surely there must have been another way to do that, right? Garo has, apparently, done work for Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Madonna, so, uh, obviously, everyone needs to bow down to him. Sadly, Season 14 will say auf wiedersehen on Thursday, November 5th, so now seems like a good time to take stock and rank the previous 13 seasons, with the expectation that the 2015 season will probably fall somewhere in the middle of the pack once it's done. Cornelius's jumper And Erin's making something mysterious with a weird print to go with her earthy smelling mealworms. There is no way she isn't going to Fashion Week there, so you can see more there, BedHead Garcia. But it was really frustrating that so much of this season focused on having no sewing experience and not even knowing how to make a sleeve. At Stubbs, Cornelius is letting his hair down, son! The train looks like toilet paper stuck to his shoe, Brandon says. It still seems so random when she was doing so well, but there were a lot of strong designers this season, a lot of big but still likable personalities to root for, and a little bit of controversy to keep things interesting.
He did so well this season, top six boo! They all love the jumpsuit, save Nina, who calls it boring and samey. Rik seems to create the same silhouette in the same fabric, but he's a more experienced and confident designer, so, I'd be good either way. Roberi likes to tie knots when he's feeling anxious: welcome to his Anxiety Dress! We are always on the lookout for talented candidates who are curious about the world around them and passionate about entertainment. This looks too much like dayware to the judges. And drink coffee Erin: Zac loves it.
Almost as much as Rik's Foobie Pack. Not a bad season, but not a great season, and it suffered in comparison to the one before. The 2007 season is still the gold standard when it comes to fashion, especially from the final three -- , Rami Kashou, and Jillian Lewis. This is a situation ripe for drama. Tessa presents bronze and gold striped bell bottoms and a poncho-style coat. Oh but wait: there is a second dimension to this challenge. They try to talk Tim into it, but Grandpa takes a hard pass.
Laurence gets soso feedback; work work! I quite like it, it looks real, if itchy. There was great fashion too, especially from Daniel Vosovic, who kinda choked in the finale, giving the edge to the quietly powerful Chloe Dao. Challenge first, count heads later. Heidi is sending them on a little trip and listening to her try to affect a southern accent for her hometown via Germany? Everyone is so focused on Fashion Week; Erin is the only one who's pretty sure she's going. In the bottom we find, Tessa, which is a bit of a surprise. There's a reason we usually skip that part.
Roberi had made a tube skirt hoo-ha cover for his model, the knots keep moving! Erin is first Worm dress and jumpsuit Judges Critique Time! Kate Pankoke was voted back from Season 11, for whatever reason, and she bonded with , who spent so much of her time getting emotional that it was a struggle to watch. This season also holds the dubious honor of two designers quitting, when both Andrea and Kooan left between Episode 3-4 for personal reasons. Lela picks Renee; Hester picks Kovid, which is a perfect pair; Tessa picks Frankie, which leaves Sebastian and Cavanaugh. The latter part is like running into a couple of your exes after a few cocktails at Studio 54. This season didn't just have great fashion, it also had its share of big personalities, drama, Elisa Jimenez spitting on her clothes, and Jack Mackenroth having to leave for medical reasons, bringing back beloved. Heidi calls it macrame and brave and they all love it! I can't wait to see the different looks and watch Roberi snatch that crown and all the other designers, squee!! His final collection was strong, but so were the very different but still impressive pieces all season from Laura Bennett, Mychael Knight, and the perpetually robbed Uli Herzner. The model is truly gigantic and the ensemble looks like something that you should worship.
The designtestants are staying at another Best Western Plus, not the hotel I stayed at with a giant cactus out front, kidney-shaped pool and roaches. Also in the bottom: Venny, who has decided to put a train on the ends of a pair of bell bottoms. The only reason this isn't No. There was a lot to talk about this season, for better or worse, from personal drama to garment debates. Even someone who doesn't care about fashion would get a kick out of 's impression Where's Andrae?. Come on down to the pool, y'all! It brought out the worst of the show without really giving the designers a chance to be truly creative and show their individual talents to the audience. This week, the designers are using male models and will also be paired with one of the eliminated contestants as a helper.
They like the back as I do, just a little boring. Jamall's is sort of a zebra gimp suit with feather shoulders and a giant zebra skirt. It's a companion look to the unconventional materials challenge; with actual fabric! I don't like either of Laurence's looks, at all. Season 5 This season had some standout designs -- Suede's cocktail dress for the challenge, Korto Momolu's amazing seat belt coat -- but it's still a little surprising that Leanne Marshall of Team Ugly Brown Fabric managed to win over both the perpetually robbed Korto and the retro fabulous if abrasive Kenly Collins. But she wasn't even as bad as time bomb Sandro Masmanidi, who quit, or Ken Laurence, who just got way too mad. The creativity this season was so inspiring.
