I have to commend him because it's evident that he showed a lot of effort and thought in this collection. yeah you see a little referencing of other designer's ideas here and there but he interpreted them in his own.
what I think is lacking in this collection is a woman's eye. You can tell that this collection is designed by a man. the clothes are ornamental and sometimes bordering in the vulgar and will not look good on a woman. When the pieces in this collection are broken down, how will it work and compliment a woman's wardrobe. the collection needed less statement pieces and more staples like a great pant, a comfy knit, tops in fabrics that will function and not too delicate.
Design-wise, it needed a little play and juxtaposition with fabrics, colors and needed to be a little subtle and not too in your face.
