    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
    *a photographer
    *a designer
    *a stylist
    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 :innocent:

    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 :ninja:

    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.

    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.
