    I loved Joanna's blue top or the black/white polka dot - I don't know which was bought. Anyway, the blue blouse with the skirt would have been a terrific full addition look.

    I thought it was interesting that Express told the designers that the clothes they sell need to be able to be worn by all shapes and sizes. When Hunter's romper walked the runway I was like...."um...my left butt cheek (and probably my right) would be hanging out of that!" As nice as it was, it wasn't something for all sizes for sure!

    I can't wear most of the clothes they send down the runway because my stomach is bloated because of my kidneys. (I don't wear anything with a defined waistline.) Besides, at size 12-14, they consider me a "plus" size ;-)

    I did not think that romper was worth what the stores went ahead and bid for it.
    I got a phone call just before the ending, though.
    Can anyone tell me who went home? TIA

    I do like this show, but I really miss Elle McPherson.

    I'm confused about the mney. If a store offers to pay $100,000 for a garment, is that the amount they will pay to have the garment produced? If not that, who gets the cash?

    It's so nice to see designers actually design SELLABLE fashions instead of crap made out of party stores and pet shops (cough*Project Runway*cough)?
    I woiuld like to hear more from the buyers. How does their communication work on their computer, who are they talking to, why they reject a garment and more. I am not into seeing more of the mentoring or work room. Well, I would like to see some stronger mentoring though!

    Photobabe, I want to know that, too.

    I don't know but logic tells me they buy $100,000 (or whatever) worth of items. They, in turn, do a 200% mark up, which used to be the norm but it could be even higher now. So the designer wants x amount for each garment and gives them that many, whatever that may be. I think they have already established a maximum amount per garment in a contract.
