Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

Possible spoilers, here: http://nymag.com/fashion/fashionshows/2009/spring/main/newyork/womenrunway/projectrunwaysuede/#
Five runway shows by PR contestants.

I spot MY winner, WHERE did Leanne find all that Tiffany blue fabric?  Drooly!  Although my build couldn't wear all those swirly baby dolls, I appreciate the work!

And would you play with necklines the way Korto has done?  Very kewl!  And Suede?  Umm, yikes!  Although I WILL try pairing darker silver with aquas, those are such Cancerian colors!

Your thoughts?

Ack!  I didn't realize that you were talking about THIS season's finals.  You might want to specify in the Subject line that your post contains spoliers - I would rather not have known who makes it to Bryant Park.

Actually two of those people DON'T make it to Bryant Park, according to last night's new episode (part I of the Finals).  So...how come those two got to show at NYFW?   Huh

They do that every year...it's so that even if you follow Fashion Week, you can still be somewhat surprised by the show.  It's sort of a Red Herring.

Maybe they felt bad for making them create their entire collection before saying they were 'out'.

There were only a couple of items in each collection that I thought were even pretty.  Most of them were too costumy and didn't seem wearable.  Leanne's pieces seem really bulky, Jarell's over decorated, Korto's kind of '80s, Kendall uses icky fabrics, and Suede... I can't even remember any of his pieces.

The last six all create collections because the runway shows are shot a few weeks before they're aired.  Three of the designers are decoys to throw off those present as to who is in the finals. 

Stuff you see on a real high fashion runway isn't supposed to look like something you'd see on the street.  It's supposed to take balls to wear something from a fashion runway.  That's why the biggest insult on that show is to say something looks like "mall clothes".  Real women might take pieces, not whole outfits, from a runway show and put them with more normal stuff.  That and high fashion inspires the more normal stuff designed by people at H&M.

I really liked Leanne's stuff and I hear it's alot lighter in person than it looks in stills.  Alwright made a Leanne inspired skirt earlier to see a wearable version of that theme: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266905.0 (she makes gorgeous stuff).  I loved the colors Korto used and I have seen alot of jewel tones in the store this year.  Plus I thought the beads were awesome.

Kenley was uninspired.  Jerell was over the top.  Joe made some nice stuff that looked like Guess type wear and well, we won't talk about glitter magic Suede.

If you like Project Runway you should read the Project Rungay blog.  It's awesome.
