    Re: Althea Harper - Season 6

    Not a lot of action in this thread...

    Anyway, Althea had a showing at Fashion week this year:
    Althea Harper Fall 2010

    There are some interesting pieces, but I'm not too keen on her leggings. And the use of contrast-coloured insets is a bit too much, in my opinion.

    Re: Gretchen Jones - Season 8

    I looked at the link to her 2011 collection. If I saw people walking down the street in some of those outfits, I'd probably turn around and stare - and not in a good way.

    The jewelry wasn't too bad, but I don't pay that much for stuff unless I totally and completely love it.

    Her clothing line just reinforces my opinion that she was not innovative in her designs nor was she classic. As for the jewelry, wasn't she praised for her jewelry design on the show? Prices on it are too high for me, but at least it is for a cause.

    Re: Gretchen Jones - Season 8

    The jewelry for a cause is very simple - even I can make that jewelry. She should've done something along her line she used in "PR," but a size most of us will wear. I will be surprised if many purchase it.

    Her designs are still the basic snoozefest which I will be honest many you can see in similar styles and purchase for far less in Kohl's or such. I liked the Inverness style coat (the blue one with the second collar - I think maybe called "Hermit") but that was it.

    Kors also did the granny pants better - even though most of us still won't wear them (even the skinny-ninnies I know of - and I use this term in their case affectionately, have told me they wouldn't wear them).

    Sorry, but she continues to prove to me that she was not the one deserving of the win.

    Don't be sorry for having good taste!

    Re: Gretchen Jones - Season 8

    Well... You're right there, I shouldn't be sorry. I do get how it feels to have people critique good and bad on wearable designs (my case fused glass/diachroic glass jewelry in particular), but her stuff is simply bad and cheap.

    I did some looking at my mom's old '70s jewelry, and the patterns that Gretchen used in the fundraiser jewelry? - they favor that style of jewelry.

    There were many talented people in the last season but we got a fairly subpar winner. I really don't think it was right for them to choose her over Mondo - even if it'd been a second designer in the line of this area (Seth Aaron of course the previous winner). People will buy Mondo's outfits sooner than Gretchen's.

    This is so sad. He left behind such a young family and the boys will be having a hard time of it. Hold them, and yourself, close, Laura.
