    I like Jefferson Musanda. He looks like a happy, friendly guy and I am hoping he translates his fun attitude to his designs.

    I don't know of any of them. I don't know if I can take all of the bitch slapping, Russian temperaments and petty garbage, where participants seem to forget how lucky they are to even be there. Sometimes, in my humble opinion, they aren't even that talented. And the Nina always wants "luxe" and abstract designs that really have nothing to do with selling garments to those wanting to buy clothes. Very odd how the show has become deconstructed, so to say.

    Hooray! The insanity, the pompousness, the talent!!! I just wish, as I have every year, that they would have slower pans and better closeups from the camera of the garments of the winning designers for each episode.

    I'd like to see clothes designed for real women - not models. And designers who are happy to design for real women.
