On another note, I hate this team concept. These are designers, you have to let them show their individuality at their fullest and not be compromised by their fellow team members because they all have to work together. It's detrimental to their creativity. I hope they mix them together every week to make it more interesting or if not just do away with it after 3 or 4 episodes.
who would think that "Teams" make it a better show? We want to see talent...
sure we love a little drama but you get that naturally from life...I hate when it's "scripted."
But that's what we got.
Couple of thoughts - I found it odd that Susan Sarandon seemed so amazed at the concept of a skort. Whether called that or not, I didn't think it was such a particularly new or novel idea. Secondly, Tim actually was the one who encouraged the kilt (though not the highly inappropriate placement of the logo) as opposed to a more traditional jean - even though some of the team were leery, for the very reasons the judges disliked it.
I think Benjamin is a tool.
I think Daniel is a class act and he's already my top choice for fan favorite, with Michelle not far behind.
I think uniforms aren't fashion and this challenge was a promofest for Susan Sarandon's club. I thought all the outfits were ridiculous.
I see nothing wrong with the designers creating uniforms. Fashion is about creating looks for clients, to meet the needs of their lifestyle or work, so there's no reason uniforms can't be fashionable. At a club, staff uniforms are an important part of the overall tone of the place. A formal place has more formal, traditional staff uniforms while an informal place has more informal, quirky uniforms.
Sure the uniforms are a promotion for the club, too. Just as an individual's outfit "promotes" them.
And somebody has to make uniforms for businesses. Should they go to someone who has no training in making clothes to create their uniforms? That wouldn't make any sense. If the designers feel that making uniforms is beneath them, they'll be cutting themselves off from a huge market for their clothes.
Richard Tyler designed the Delta flight attendant uniforms a few years back, and they made quite the splash! Beautiful, functional, and a welcome change in the world of airline uniforms. (BTW- Delta also operated a low-cost carrier (Song) that flew for only a couple of years, and Kate Spade designed those uniforms.)
Attractive, well-designed, highly-functional uniforms do wonders for the morale of employees.
