Like Britex Fabrics in SF -- except that Mood seems to have more aisle space.

NEW EPISODE THAT I'M TOO LAZY TO LOOK UP THE THREAD TITLE.

Who is the guest judge? She's got prune mouth. She just frowns and frowns.

Boy, she was unpleasant.


I guess I have no idea about avant garde. Dimitri's dress, without the collar, was a stupid 80's business suit. How on earth is that AG? And I thought the blonde girl's dress was awful. OH. And Sanjie's dress!! BLECH.

Even Christopher's dress-I abhor the fake hips that get added from time to time on this show.

I don't understand avant garde either --- typically, the more I hate it, the more avant garde it is.

I wonder if the judges were really as split as they led on, or if it was just a ploy so they could reflect on the season.

I liked *some* of Sanji's designs quite a bit, and think it would have been interesting to see an entire collection where she wasn't under the pressure of a challenge.

Who won? I was watching it last night and got to just where the judges were discussing the good and bad and my neighbor knocked on the door and i never got back to it. I guess i will finish tonight.

I see on the FB page that Sanji cut cut and a lot of people were really upset - most were calling it a race thing and some were saying she was better designer because she beat Melissa 3 times.

I don't know. I really didn't like any of the outfits. Demitri's was the worst of the bunch, and I didn't understand Fabio's. Chris's looked like things he had done before. I thought Sanji's at least showed us something new. Maybe she could have executed it better but it was different. I think if there had been some material in the back it may have worked better.

The last two were definitely the last two. I thought they would keep Sanji and cut Fabio.

Also, I'm having trouble reconciling the comments "You all did SO well this week!" and "I can't decide which one is uglier!"

Whaaa?

(I think I've decided...I don't like Heidi Klum very much.)

Wikipedia says:

Quote:
... a French term used in English as a noun or adjective to refer to people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics.
It's a military term describing the advance guard or vanguard.

Here's my problem with the use of the term AG in fashion, and particularly in Project Runway. I get that you want something that pushes the envelope. You want something that is really out there, that no one has done, that no one has seen before. Something bold. To borrow a term from Christian Siriano, something fierce. You want the uncharted territory of the fashion map, where the known lands have run out and it just says "here be dragons!" instead.

However --

The more you know about fashion history, the more you can say "I've seen that" or "so-and-so did that in [YYYY]".

I think Fabio's fix was a brilliant solution to the problem highlighted by Tim -- that there was nothing new or experimental about his coat.

On the other hand -- I took one look at his upside-down jacket and said "I've already seen that!"

Because immediately I thought of this Issey Miyake design from Vogue Patters, that I've had in my collection for what, at least a decade and a half now, wishing that I had the sewing chops to make it up and the gumption to wear it.

Obviously the construction of Fabio's coat is very different than Miyake's pattern. Miyake's jacket has sleeves, and only goes the one way around. But there's another Miyake pattern in my collection, an outerwear jacket that unfolds into a sleeping bag.

So if I had been on the judging panel, you would have heard me telling Fabio "it's very Miyake" but it's still definitely avante-garde.

Much more so than Dimitri's suit, which is basically what, a skirt with some see-through bits at the side seams, and some similar fancy-work on the jacket's sleeves, which I couldn't see on my TV. And that dumb collar. Meh!

As for Sonjia's dress with the bits of fabric seemingly floating in space, again, I've seen that. I can't find a picture, but there was a stunning backless gown on one of the episodes of the original Star Trek, designed by William Ware "Bill" Theiss. The front of the gown was anchored at the skirt on one side, and the opposite shoulder, where there was a drapey bit of fabric hanging down in back. The weight of the drape was done just right to hold the front securely in place -- and no 'nude' fabric was needed anywhere.

That's avant-garde.

I thought both Fabio and Sanjia would be out...glad they kept Fabio, because I LOVE him, but I was surprised.

After hearing his story about how he wore his button-down shirts as pants in college, I had a dream last night that I was riding my bike and tore my pants. I was wearing a sweater over a button down shirt. You guessed it-I took my shirt and wore it as pants! I think Fabio would approve!

I think it may be an all-make finale....Melissa just crumbles...I dunno...we'll see....

I think Christopher will win it all...but Dimitry might sneak in and surprise us!

I laughed at the shirt as pants thing, because I visit Regretsy regularly, and they, early on, had a HUGE contest about "Skants".

One thing I didn't understand was when Sanji realized she was missing the gold fabric - it didn't appear that it was through her fault.

If she bought it and Mood accidentally didn't put it in her bag why wouldn't she be allowed to retrieve it?
If she forgot to buy it (or left it out of her order) that's one thing but if it was not her fault I would think she would be allowed to use it?

Didn't someone go back to Mood when they forgot something or didn't have enough money or such?

I think the missing gold fabric smacks of the producers messing with the "competition."

Unless somebody actually took it out of her bag, it's probably her job to make sure it's in there before she leaves the store. I'm not sure if she was allowed to go back to the store, but maybe it would have involved a time penalty if she left, as the other designers would already be at work.

Dimitry - as expected - well made. zzzzzzzz.

Fabio - on the hanger? i thought everything was god awful and thought for certain he was a goner. Then they walked down the runway and i thought the pieces looked great. I liked them in spite of not liking them.

How they are supposed to use styling to elevate the look of the collection is beyond me. How is Fabio supposed to use styling to make it look more expensive and how is Dimitry supposed to use styling to make his look less dowdy?
I didn't get the comments.

Melissa - well made and expected - personally i liked the bad goth wigs

Christopher - oh Christopher - what the heck was that but an act of complete self sabotage. I just don't get his 'oh i'll figure it out later' comment.
Later is now man!
and why didn't he send down the gown????
Based on what he sent down the runway last night? He should have been kicked off and he's probably my favorite.

Pretty much all of the above. I didn't get Christopher's whole bit with the x-ray. That was bizarre. I get that it was a pattern and a very interesting one - but not for a whole collection. Maybe that was just drama till he wins. I didn't like any of them in particular but like Demtri's over the others.
