I would never have guessed that I would someday purchase the DVDs of a reality show, but this is the one that changed my mind. Aspiring fashion designers compete to win the chance to be "America's next great fashion designer" - what could be better? First of all, it is a competition based on true talent and skill - there is no faking it in these challenges - either you can put together a garment or you can't. Secondly, as fashion designers are artists, huge personalities abound (judges, models and contestants!) - no shrinking violets here. Finally, each weekly challenge is unique meaning each episode remains fresh - occasional twists help this cause.
Overall, one of the most fascinating shows on television today.
