I watched quite a bit of the recent marathon. I want to know how it is that the designers had such an easy time with the dog challenge and not the every-day-woman challenge.
Jeffrey says something to the effect that designing for a dog is easy - you just have to measure properly. How come he couldn't do this with Angela's mom?
And, as Angela said (can't recall if it was on the show or on bonus footage), how come Keith could make a jacket for the jet-setter show and not for the every-day woman show when the time allotment was similar?
I'm glad Jeffrey got his life together. He is still angry and bitter about something, though, and needs to get it together. I find it really difficult to support him because of this.
Having said this, it is interesting that they have a designer like him come in and do gowns and semi-traditional day wear, but the show doesn't reverse it on the other players. I think Jeffrey has done an outstanding job (except in the everyday-woman challenge) designing in genres out of is world. I would love to see what Laura and Uli would come up with if asked to design a rock outfit.
Take them out of their element and they struggle. Some atleast, Michael seemed to do fine when designing for the so called "plus sized" model.
I despise Jeffery, as my S.O. does, too. He doesn't make for good TV, he makes for the perpetuation of stereotypes: 1) Fashion designers are prissy and 2) Sizes over 4 are for FAT people and should be ignored. Watching him makes me so angry that I often mute the TV and read his responses via captioning.
He reminds me, a lot, of James Frey and his Holier Than Thou attitude because he "walked through fire" and came out with only a singed Prada bag. Boo Hoo that he "lived on the street and had a habit"; to me, it just shows that he was a self serving individual to begin with.
Still crazy, after all these shears

Did you mean Allison had trouble designing for a certain model (Alexandra - the one Tim called "zaftig" i.e. Yiddish for "fat")? I don't remember Angela doing so.
Also, Michael didn't have a plus size model - she was thin. So he had a different 'challenge' than some of the others, like Robert, did. Robert had the largest-size model I think. I do wish the show had given the designers dress forms. You can't mold something to thin air.
I think Jeffrey and the way they treating him (the fact that he is still here) has shown that they have jumped the shark. It's not about fashion and designers any more. It's about the nastier you are, the longer you stay on. I am sooooo not watching this show again after this season.
And I never ever thought I would ever say this to anybody in my life, but Jeffrey, please do the world a favor -- go back on the street, take up drugs again and overdose.
I lost interest in Trading Places when the debate started to rage as to whether it was "entertainment", a "design" show or simply a "game" show. When Hildi and Doug started to disrespect,insult and make fun of the "everyday" home owner I was gone. Now Project Runway is doing a similar thing. The producers seem to be thriving on this "Jeffery" controversy. Well , I am an "everyday" woman. I find Jeffery disrespectful, insulting and not funny. In my book that does not equal "entertaining". Consider "the shark jumped".
Shaken, not stirred.
Gosh. Are people still mad about the Mom challenge?
Jeffrey definitely has an edge to him but he is also one of the more interesting designers. Most of the others have become a little predictable. With Jeffrey it's always a surprise, even if it doesn't always work out.
I hope he makes it to the final 3 along with Kayne and Michael.
