a model judging designers?
OMG! Have you seen what some models wear backstage?
I want to see who'll be the rest of the jury before making any comments .. there's got to be
that must be thrown in the mix ... I guess they had Ms Klum to front for "image".
i agree with blu..
in general i'm not a reality-tv fan,
i wouldnt watch this even if i could
still i think it may give a good chance to new designers
getting some exposure.
for fashion followers or designers to be it will
give a taste of designer's everyday reality
i want to do this show!! hahahah
Unlike America's Next Top Model, post-show legitimacy in the industry could very well be attained as a result of this program. For a variety of reasons ANTP contestants didn't reflect high fashion and that was a severely limiting factor. Designers--particulary up and comers--don't share these constraints. I think it could work.
As for a model being one of the judges, I buy that. Wasn't there a thread floating around on tFS a few months ago about an upcoming series of ads for a store showing models stying themselves? One of the supporting views was that they as a group are exposed to more designer clothing than anyone else so they are in a position to see what's out there.
Because it is a contest, it reeks of reality tv but I hope Bravo pushes for somewhat of a documentary feel to raise it beyond the cheap, watered-down feel of ANTM.
I'm a bit worried of the kind of 'eyes' these judges will have. Will they really pick someone who is of genuine talent or some Marc Jacobs trendy wannabe?
i think this show will be fun to watch, but Atelier on the post-show legitimacy thing...kind of like American Idol too...which i think has become a joke now...maybe was from the beginning.
An MJ wannabe has mass appeal ... if there's one, I bet my pants that designer will win. It's all about the audience, and most people wouldn't choose Kawakubo-type of clothing over Jacobs/Vuitton.
no more reality tv PLEASE. it ruins the beauty of everything in my opinion. like love, being successful, fashion, etc.
I agree with Atelier.
...i wanna be a judge!!!...

i actually did some checking ...but all the judges had been selected already...some political thing with elle mag...too bad...
Thanks for posting more info, Atelier.
Well, If softie wasn't tipped on the shoulder, then we should tell Ale (there's an audition in MIA)
I mean, puh-lease, like the camera wouldnt love Alejandro!
Am I the only one that stayed up late watching this? They had to use materials from the grocery store to make evening wear. Some horrible, some really creative. well- M. Kors., Patricia Fields (SATC), and the editor from Elle are judges.
absolutely stupid show, they kick off the msot talented one.
oh...i missed it...what channel is it on?...and when?...
