The designers on Season 7 did this same challenge.
Obviously by the lack of numbers posting her, maybe this show has run it's course. I enjoy watching each week to see what the designers will "create", however as stated by most here these designers are not very "creative". We get the same old same old each week (only different fabrics/colors). That being said..I LOVED LOVED the camel coat and the dress with the leather; I thought that was creative!
none of these designers really rock it for me, and for all the fuss they make over Ven I find most of his creations "mother of the bride"...well maybe there will be a market for that!
Here are the pictures of this week's fashions. I included each designer's popularity ranking from the official website so you could get an idea of fan favorites.
Click to see Spoiler:Next week is the create your own textile challenge. Mondo is appearing in this one - naturally as he has had one of the best prints that's been designed on the show IMHO - and there are some interesting designs and interesting comments from Tim on the prints of the material. One as I mentioned really kinda stunned me because I wouldn't expect Tim to be so blunt in that way.
What is saddest to me though is that there are more fans of Ven over Fabio, yet Ven is showing that he wants coathangers instead of real people while Fabio embraces life more.
I think it's sick that Elena has the highest rating. I like her the very least!! And Dmitry is not doing much better popularity-wise than Ven. I just don't get it.
However, compared to previous seasons, I don't like any of these designers as much as some of my other favorite designers, like Kayne, Austin, and Chloe.
It really was a surprising comment. I don't think it needs to be spoilered since it was right there in the preview. I can't remember the exact phrasing, but I will say it sounded like he was talking about someone's textile and/or design and he used the words "menstrual cycle"! :eek
When I was just looking through the photos and checking out the fan ranking I realized that I don't really have a favorite at the moment. That actually really surprised me because usually I would have one or two clear favorites by this point in the show. I just don't find any of these designers very likable or interesting.
I was very surprised that Tim had an issue with Ven's skirt. It was quite nice and he would have been better off going with that regardless of Tim's reason ( which he really didn't give) than the freshman home-ec version he dashed off.
Phonegrrrl - I agree with your comment on Heidi's dress. It did look like Ven had designed it, with maybe a little help from Sonjie. The dress at the end however . . . ugh.
Jadewarlock - yes, Tim's comment is a doozie! Not sure who it is directed at, but those who watch with me hope it's for Gunnar - mostly because Tim pronounced "homage" correctly and Gunnar (in a previous challenge) did not!
Maybe it's because I am in an older demographic or maybe it's because I live in a warmer climate where a winter "coat" isn't really necessary, but I found nothing offensive about Dmitry's cape/shawl/wrap thingee. Sonjie's jacket was adorable and I'd wear it in a heartbeat - IF my arms were that long and skinny!
I am guessing Fabio's previous win helped the judges make their decision because it really was a coin toss between him and Alicia.
Up until this point, Gunnar has annoyed me more than anyone. However, Elena is now firmly at the top of my Bitch List. I've even gone so far as to move Gunnar to the bottom of my favorite list - tied with Ven. The nicest thing I can think of to say about her is that she is an incredibly unpleasant person.
