I watched the premier episode while working today – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that they re-run it!
I, too thought the winner was amazing – I had marked his and Ping Wu’s as my 2 favorites.
I loved the detail work on the bodice – which appeared to be impeccably executed – the juxtaposition of the geometry and the circular designs – how the geometry of the top echoed the geometry of the print – and yet how the full circle (appeared) skirt echoed the shape of the motif in the print…then how those dark bands swinging (did they – or were they ‘attached’ to the skirt?) pulled – connected the darks in the bodice down into the skirt.
I truly feel that this season’s talent takes us back to the level – if not even above – that of the initial season.
Pin Wu’s no ‘Hanger appeal’? Sew – if I had a store – a boutique, you bet your booties I’d put her garments on a mannequin and they’d sell – sell – sell! I thought her model was far too dull for her design though…hope she selects a more dramatic one to match her style next time!
HOW they do this all that quickly is BEYOND ME – my wildest imaginations!!!
