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

    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.
