Ok, let’s talk about this episode. Warning spoilers ahead….
Amanda’s pieces were nice, but a little unwowing. I really hate the whole crop top that sticks out thing. I’m glad the judges didn’t love it all, but they do seem to fawn on her.
Sean’s looks were very sleek and look rich. He does clean really well. My least favorite was the white dress, why do designers think women want to look bigger around the hips. Nina is really stuck on the fringe thing.
I really dislike Char’s print that she got in Rome, I feel like some old lady is wearing it around a pool in Miami. Yet, her pieces look junior to me. The pencil skirt and top, looked like cheap office wear.
Kini’s stuff is interesting in it’s construction, but some of it comes off a little too stiff. And all denim? I know it is his thing, but yawn. What was that trim on Kini’s crop top?! And the shoulders on the dress/coat? (The judges disliked it too.) I did kind of dig the white top, but the skirt with it has a strange shape to be paired with it.
Who’s going to win? I have no idea at this point. After all these years, I’ve given up guessing what the judges will do.
