I've watched Brad Goreski ever since his first episode on The Rachel Zoe Project, two years ago, when he was a bumbling, stumbling, goofy, inept assistant to Rachel Zoe's styling assistant, Taylor. Since then, he has grown and developed his own very unique of style of fashion for both women and men. I'm so happy to see him with his own show now, and I really enjoyed the first episode showing both his home life and his beginning struggles to establish a styling business of his own. I also appreciated the irony of Brad acknowledging the importance of a really good styling assistant --- when he himself practically had to be beaten into submission by both Rachel and Taylor -- and he still made tons of errors. (It's sort of like when your adult children come to you and say, wow mom, NOW I see what you had to go through with me when I was little!)
Enjoyed the first episode, and I especially appreciated that he really was keeping it 'real' -- letting the viewers see his own doubts, insecurities, and his typical Brad-silliness! I'm wishing him well. I think he'll develop a very respected name for himself, even if it takes a while. I also appreciate that he addressed the issue of how he came to leave Rachel Zoe. He said that he gave her 2 1/2 months notice and he was very honest about wanting to go out on his own. Rachel didn't portray it that way on her show, and that makes me sad because they both seem like 'good' people --- and of course it is very typical that someone who is mentored by someone else, eventually sets out on their own path to develop their own career.
