Mission Catwalk Season 5: Finale

Just talk about the designs please, me.

Even though we have an additional menswear look, a pre runway critique by Mercedes & tame model picking, in one rushed stupid day.

Guest Judge: Mateo Harris, Designer of Mateo New York

All Stars Episode 9 Ryan

 

Ryan

First off the music is really amazing, it fits with the intended sexiness of the collection.

Second of all, he has the best menswear design of the 3, the jacket and the shirt both looks detailed & surprising and the way he zips off the show the shirt while accompanying the music is clever.

Third, the initial impact towards me was awful, the one element I know about Ryan Chan (the walking away surprise) is missing, some of the clothes were hampered by the model’s walk, and it’s just…an overall lazy effect of boob bouncing.

Designs that I like: Look 8, Look 10

All Stars Episode 9 David

David

There is like 4 mini collections (the blue wave prints, the white lace, the blue floral prints and the purple bling) in 1 full collection, which is too much to be cohesive, the purple (especially the last gown with feathers and bling) didn’t fit well with both the blue floral prints and the mini white laces.

But there is some thought out cohesion in his works, the capes in the beginning (Look 1, 2, 5), the keyhole around the model’s boobs (Look 3, 7, 9), the ready-to-wear from look 4-10 (or 11 she’s don’t mind the ridiculousness of the pants) and the carpet dresses (Look 2, 3, 12, 13, though the lady would be on the worst dressed list for wearing Look 2, 3 & 12).

By the way, those round bags are really cute.

I dislike the music, too bombastic for the collection

(Holy heck! How the judges allowed David to send 13 designs for the collection while Ryan and Renardo send 14?).

Designs that I like: Look 4, Look 13

All Stars Episode 9 Renardo

Renardo

Poor guy (who had a meltdown while listening to the judges criticisms that has a decent point), cutting the horrendous male costume for an Arabian soldier in a MV, this collection is probably one of the most ambitious finale collection that I’ve seen, the fabrics really looks expensive and Jamaicans are probably surprised at something unexpected and dramatic coming from him.

But it is very pretentious (even the music is), most of his work were overdesigned (Look 10 in particular) and it needs a courageous person to wear some of the overdesigned look to the public.

Designs That I Like: Look 4, Look 5

Overall, since the judges are so off-put but Ryan & Renardo and raved towards David (which while I’m not impressed, I would easily choose this to win over both of them), David won, congratulations.

And so, this All Star season is finally over, and leaves me to do other recapping of other shows.

Mission Catwalk Season 5: Episode 8

Design a mini collection for S/S 2016 of pieces every woman would want to own and pass down to her daughter. (Oh, and make an ad campaign for the collection, but as we only got to see 1 of them, which is the winner, is a moot point)

Really, the ad campaign would be really useless if we can’t really see the ad.

BTW, did somebody in the production department confuse Mercedes that the collection is to pass to their daughters and not share with their daughters (which I don’t think that daughter would want to done that in the name of independence and fearing outdatedness.)

Guest Judge: Mercedes Carrera, who you already know who she is.

Oh, and surprise, a double elimination, to make up for a contender for the longest runway and judging in the Project Runway franchise history.

Mission Catwalk Season 5: Episode 7

Coachella (by Wikipedia): An annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. It was founded by Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures.

Strange that why the designers thought that this challenge is hard, when usually Coachella is almost identical towards the easy, breezy, beautiful fabric fashion design in the Caribbean area. Aside from being too tired, or they hate gypsies.

This episode is all about Keenea, Keenea, Keenea. Being the one to indirectly hire the designers to dress for here (which according to Google, no signs of her wearing the winning dress), replacing Mercedes as this episode’s mentor (probably the funniest, starting with one of the most forced scene of designers doing the memory lane) and the guest judge, Keenea’s own sister Kenisha Linton (Lecturer at Kingston University).

Mission Catwalk Season 5: Episode 5

Design corporate wear for NCB Foundations scholars entering the world of work.

What a surprisingly difficult challenge, trying to make their newly graduated interns stand out in front of everybody, without making everybody see you as the boss? Having yourself look like fresh meat for marriage, but also making yourself a legitimate contributor for the world economy?

Along with doing corporate wear (which is not the majority of the designers comfort zone), everybody says it sucks, and tired of not having the liberty of a 2 days challenge

And worst of all, Mercedes Gonzalez just took a small dose of bitchy comparison pill today.
