So, I never planned to write recaps of this show because I never planned on watching this show. Why? Because it happens to stink. Its not good. Equally bad is Project Runway on Lifetime. (Between Heidi’s scrunchie, awful hair and terrible red carpet choices, I’m quite skeptical of her ability to judge a design show. Also, the mini-documentary commercials about “lifetime women” are a constant reminder that I should turn off my TV.)
Anyway- “The Fashion Show” is hosted by Iman and Isaac Mizrahi, who have basically swapped genders for the purpose of this show… and the premise is that all the designers are split into two “houses” who then have to create a cohesive collection that they present in “The Fashion Show.” To the winner: Congratulations, you have created the ultimate collection. To the loser: YOU. Are out of fashion.
Basically this show has been puttering along weekly, with some good designs, but mostly really boring and crappy ones. Isaac refers to them as “sale rack” and I think that is a pretty apt description of almost everything I have seen these designers produce, with a few exceptions.
One house- the House of Nami- has one about 90% of the challenges. Last week they threw out one of the only competitors who consistently made pretty clothes…
There is one designer named Calvin who is such an asshole that everyone repeatedly votes him off every week, but producers keep him around to stir the pot. And also, he makes avant garde clothes.
This week, I was literally in shock when I saw how crappy the House of Emerald’s clothes were. SHOCK:
