Elisa is, allegedy, pretty well-known, but not as a fashion designer. I think she lives in New Mexico, which is basically NorCal East (just kidding. Kinda.).

I think they picked unknown designers with significant talent. These people are in the middle rungs of  their careers, which gives them much more potential to become big fashion designers. That said, I was pretty underwhelmed by several of the designers first efforts, which is kind of inexcusable since they had so few restrictions on their designs (real fabric, no "theme," etc). Rami's dress was gorgeous, Chris' dress was pretty nice, but there was, to quote the immortal Laura Bennett, "some serious ugly in that room."

by the second show i'm matching former contestants to current ones!
I think Christian is this seasons Santino, with the whole "I'm gonna do whatever the hell I want and if you don't like it then f@$k you" asthetic
Elisa=hippy of Angela+ insanity of Vincent
I think that when Elisa is put on a team with somebody who can control the 'multimedia' thing, she can make pretty clothing, like the outfit she made with Sweet P. in the second ep.
Is it just me, or does Ricky always seem to be having a breakdown?
He seems to cry a lot
I don't see why SJP was the "biggest judge ever". I think they could have had a bigger person judge...but I don't love SJP that much anyway.
and that was very long...
so I'm gonna stop now...

yeah, i found it slightly ridiculous that some of them were crying when SJP walked into the room. 
i like Elisa, even if she is totally insane.  though if i ever got anything from her, i'd have to make sure i washed it thoroughly first, since there's a good chance it was spit on  Roll Eyes.

finally i found a project runway thread. i haven't had enough time to be in tune with the designers so i don't have any clear favorites right now. they are all producing okay work. the bar has been lifted and yet i haven't seen amazing. we'll all just wait until the next episode.

and yes! the more irksome thing about the whole show is the terrible models. half of them aren't even pretty and the clothing doesn't hang as well on some of them because they are rather "big boned" than a typical model. but of course the walk is the most important and they all couldn't even get that down. it was as if this is their only big break. okay, sorry for the rambling but a lot of the clothes didn't sell to me as quickly as they should have due to the terrible models.  Lips sealed

I agree.

I also agree that there was WAY too much crying going on.

Eliza is a totally wackado but her stuff has so far looked good in the end.

Oh, my. That Episiode last night was so fantastic! Finally a menswear challenge! I was dying!

I think that Kevin should have won that challege, but whatever. The good was great, but the bad was even better. Those three outfits by Sweet P, Carmen, and Ricky were a big ol' mess! Ricky was in way over his head, he was drowining in the deep end. What was he thinking when he decides to do a suit? Carmen, with that horrible jacket, how did her pants turn out so bad, when Victoria used the same pattern from Jack?

I wonder why Tim is doing his podcast and "Tim's Take"? I love getting his insights.

I wonder why so few of them did a more casual yet professional look instead of attempting a dress shirt and crashing and burning. I think a blazer and well made knit t-shirt-ish shirt would have been fine.

I agree with PinkyK.  If I were on the show, knowing nothing of mens wear, I would've stuck to something that's do-able.  Also, how did they not know how to make men's pants??  They're easier than women's, men's pants drape instead of fit like a lot of women's pants.  Lastly, How the heck did Eliza hand sew all of that? (didn't she say she only handsews?)

i agree with theatregirl25.  i think Kevin should have won.  so what if the shirt was purple?  over all the outfit was really great, and i think the purple would have looked good with Tiki's skin tone.
