UTG s1e11 • The Benefit Of Fashion • 27 March 2014
Last time on Under The Gunn the remaining designers created mini-collections in pairs for the Francesca's girl.
Oscar & Shan won the challenge. Each has something being manufactured and sold at Francesca's.
Blake & Sam did well, placing in the safe middle.
Asha & Natalia had bad construction and worse communication. Natalia fell on her sword and was eliminated. Asha cried and got to stay.
"The judges seem to like when she makes horribly constructed things."
That's it, always show the judges reverence and respect. Never mind YOUR execution troubles, only those of your competitor.
No, it's the real women challenge.
MG: It reminds me of something that a nurse would wear in a war, and this treatment that you're doing to it, it looks like ... blood. And, besides the paint, I feel this isn't ... you.
Tim Gunn: Sam, I've never been more disappointed in your work. I'd jettison the whole thing and start over.
Can you recall a harsher critique?
Perfect construction, and she got what she wanted. I suspect the judges will say wasted opportunity. Maybe he should have offered her a gown in real life right after the show, but for the show, give the judges something fresh and adult? I do like it, though, because it is flattering.
It's great for 1.5 hours. I hate how the pattern isn't lined up in the back, but I am wondering if that is a pattern that can be lined up *anywhere.* If that is the case, shouldn't the seam where the pattern is off be under the arms? I'm not sure how to address this. I don't think he had any other fabric. No, he had black fabric, yes? So, he should have used black on the back, right?
It just hit me, did they make a big deal about hair & makeup changes? Usually they do. I have to go rewatch for that. Or just to admire Scott Patric.
