Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges' panel.
An ethics professor ironically finds himself caught in a dangerous ethical dilemma when he attempts to intervene on behalf of a bright but troubled student who appears to be a victim of physical abuse.

I enjoy any show with Tim Gunn in it, but what holds this show back is the quality of the mentors. Couldn't this show have found more seasoned and mature mentors than Hysteria Nick, Peevish Mondo, and Haughty Anya? It's painful for me to watch these three work through their developmental baby steps while learning how to mentor. All three of them should have an arms-length professional relationship with their charges as well as with the judges, but, alas, they do not, although Nick fares better than Mondo and Anya. I wish we could see less of the mentoring process and more of the contestants' designing process. And, yes, we need more participation from Tim Gunn! Always!
