My husband and I love this show for the creative challenges and overall concept. This team challenge season lost me. It seems very contrary to creativity to expect all creative people to be able to function on a team... and as a viewer, I couldn't really get a handle on each designer's perspective and point-of-view. Also added a whole lot of drama and made it more of the kind of reality show I try to avoid. The talent pool seemed shallow this year as well, but not sure if that had to do with teams. (I mean - people who don't know basic design and sewing methods?) Almost gave up halfway through - but as people were eliminated it began to seem a little more like previous seasons and one could get a better idea of a designer's aesthetic. I applaud them for trying something new, but hope next season doesn't go with teams or some other kind of season long twist.
Did not like the designers having to be part of a team for the whole season. In my opinion, this twist stifled their own individuality and creativity. I know that in the real business world one has to learn to collaborate with others but, being a designer is a career that requires one to dig deep within oneself and if there is someone else interfering with this process, then frustrations rise and the process stops. One could tell that, for the most part, the designers lost their spark and looked defeated after these team challenges. Season 11 lost a couple of designers who never got a chance to express and show their own aesthetics due to the other designers who wanted and got their own way. In a way, this season reinforced the wrong values and attitude... "if you are not selfish and loud, your design ideas will never see the light of day." A couple of team challenges within the season is very appropriate but, please, NEVER DO THIS TYPE OF TWIST FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON...
Where do I begin .. not the best season of PR .. and once again one designer who should have gone home WAY back stays on and on and on and on .. Patricia . the politically correct candidate. Jusges comments sounded like they were convincing themselves she had talent for .. something close to designing clothes. If you are familiar with western wear . been there done that . I have seen countless items like Patricias in the 80s and 90s and as far back as 70s hippydom. Again . what were the producers thinking . what were the judges thinking .. they took out better designers and replaced them with a token . it's a slap in the face to designers and to Native Americans who do not DO Native American costume design . which is what Patricia presented. The fact that her work often brought the team down . was also a slap in the face to the participants. I think outfits like Project Runway . need to decide . .do they want to think OUTSIDE the box .. fine a really talented ethnic designer .. who...
