So Bad I Just Can't Look Away
Verified purchase
It appears this show, which must have been Bravo's attempt to replace Project Runway when it moved to Lifetime, only lasted two seasons, and it's not hard to see why. The designers are mirthless and largely talentless, and yet oh, so, stuck on themselves. A more determined group of backstabbers I have never seen on a fashion design challenge show. The challenges are interesting but the outcomes often fall way short of expectations and are strangely colorless. Whether this is a result of the lack of talent, or what appears to be rather poor mentoring, is hard to say. Why would you pick designers who have such underdeveloped technical skills and then criticize them for it? Someone should have told them that they would have to sew for themselves. The designer critiques, relying in part on audience reactions, are mostly brutal and discouraging, and too small a segment of designers get a critique on each show. It's hard to blame Isaac Mizrahi for jumping to Project Runway Allstars when he got the chance. This show was doomed from the first episode. And yet for all that is negative about the show, I can't stop watching it.

Fashion contestants cannot sew?
Verified purchase
This would have been better if the producers had thought it through. WHY did they get contestants that cannot SEW? It's ludicrous and hard to watch. One reviewer said it was a 'poor man's Project Runway' but I will go a step further: It is a farce Project Runway. I do like Isaac Mizrahi, but I am surprised he is a part of this.

It'll do to get my project runway fix
Verified purchase
This show feels cheap and cheesy compared to project runway. I love project runway(even my macho boyfriend loves project runway), but no show has compared so far. However, this is better than some of the other similar shows i've seen. This series is entertaining and there is some serious talent. The judging is not thorough enough and that is what I loved about project runway. I just kept wondering what Michael or Nina would have thought about some of the clothes and its hard to get used to tim gunn not being around. I was dissapointed with who won at the end as well. But if you need your project runway fix, this should feel the void til the new season.

Good for reality TV
Verified purchase
I wanted to write this because I feel the other reviewer of this show was unfair. Reality television is not supposed to be genius, and the format for ALL reality shows are quite similar and uninspired. However this show in itself is fun to watch. The people on the show are interesting and have their own unique design perspectives and personalities. There was drama, which is something I enjoy about reality tv. The challenges were fun and often came with a twist. Each week there were designs which were lovely, and designs which failed, making the final runway show very fun to watch. If you like reality shows about fashion, I'd say this one is worth your watch.

It's not my favorite but I'm still watching
Verified purchase
I like the idea of this show but I have to say I don't care for most of the competitors. They are back stabbing and constant complainers. It's tiresome after awhile and you wish all of them would lose but here I am still watching. I do love Issac and I love the Bravo channel.

Not as interesting as Project Runway
Verified purchase
but okay if you like reality shows that are contests for a talent not just made up fake situations, this is in same category as PR and Under the Gunn, Not my favorite because of host but I watched it. I love seeing what these young people create.

Talented people
Verified purchase
The episodes are mostly about the talent of the designers, who are eliminated one by one after challenges. Less of the drama and more of the design than other fashion programs that are similar. Enjoyed it.
