I like that it sets itself apart from PR by focusing on RTW, but in order for that to come across to viewers who aren't in the business, they need hosts who aren't pop stars or catty, bitchy high fashion designers. They need more people like Tim Gunn, industry professionals who aren't name-recognized designers or celebrities. Those are what guest judges are for.Originally Posted by Kao;3564737;
It bugs me that they expect the designers to crank out ready-to-wear looks meeting wacky challenge requirements without any mentoring. I think they were afraid of looking too much like PR so they forced the rules the other way. Hopefully if they get a second season, they can relax and make things less illogical, and maybe cast fewer "characters".
I mean really, was J-P ever going to be a RTW designer?
