I have to admit I actually really like the prettiness of it. Maybe the pink runway wasn't the best choice.

I'm very curious to know who buys his stuff? Like really? And if so, I wouldn't be surprised if he was required to do many alterations to the pieces to make them wearable and less comical.

The first section was romantically beautiful and then I feel like it was a different collection.

Katy Perry will be all over this collection. I can feel it.

Mabille kills me. I think that he has a good deal of talent (see the pared down dresses, they're gorgeous) but he always feel the needs to overthink his dresses. They're overembellished, oversized, overdetailed, overfrilled, over everything. His lack of restraint, plus his beyond shoddy inspirations, heavily hinder his talent.

Lauren Bigelow's dress is absolutely gorgeous, the rest is just like any other couture collection so far: safe and not so luxurious.

Goodness gracious. Glinda the Good Witch would label this collection "too much."

I think GERGIN said it best with "comical". Like, unintentionally goofy and cartoony. It's the type of designs Bob Mackie used to come up with to dress Carol Burnett's "Mama's Family".

I'm not clear if he's in on the joke, but these designs are almost naively endearing-- and charming, because they are so very unintentionally comical, or designed by a 12-year-old girl. Eunice would covet every single dress here.

He has done better in the past. I think many of these dress would look better in different colors!

sooooo bad!!!!!!

the problem with alexis is that he actually believes that he is a bloody good designer, which he is totally not!!!!!!! this is dated, frothy, saccarine sweet and ugly to boot
on an aside, the techniques employed are very interesting
