12 contestants under the age of 18 compete to win a full scholarship to FIDM in California, a full sewing and crafting studio from ®brother, a feature in seventeen magazine, and $25,000 to start their own line.
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.
Premise just isn't working out. Why were these mentors selected? Nick was only a great tailor, Mondo was spotty but sometimes very good, Anya was good but can be snide and hyper critical. So we're spending too much time on these inadequate mentors and not nearly enough on design. Each week at least one designer gets skipped over - very uneven attention, as if they are too amateur to bother with. Judges have twice left decisions to a mentor, which is an inexcusable cop-out. Who is critiquing the mentors and why can't we send them home? Tim Gunn isn't living up to his own standard, sometimes being pettish and never actually offering feedback. We all like him so much, but I'm thinking he's not a great mentor either. Obvious flaws in designs aren't even mentioned. Am l an idiot to keep watching?
