Hola Gasmii! We have the long-awaited quitter’s episode!
We start by finding that Grandma has disappeared!!! At first everyone assumed she was aimlessly wandering around the park feeding the birds and telling people to pull up their pants.
But no! She is really gone according to a vague statement from Tim. From some of her comments last week it makes sense and we move along pretending that there is no reason to believe she is frozen in a drain pipe somewhere outside Parsons.
For this week’s challenge we have the privilege of marketing Michael Kors and his lifetime obsession with Casual Wear. So basically the task is to design for average women with average bodies who have above average money to spend on labels. The twist is that it’s a travel-woman-on-the-go type outfit that needs to stay fresh and wrinkle-free for an entire day – for the first time ever! I need to hold off on my rant on this until the full cap!
Everyone is already rattled with Grandma turning up missing (instead of the oft-feared not breathing), until out of nowhere… Afrasian bows out! I find this disappointing as he was definitely original and certainly funny, if only perpetuating every stereotype about Japanese people imaginable.
At this news everyone breaks down and acts like they majored in drama instead of fashion. To make up for the loss we have been rejoined by Vampire Bangs. That was one of my favorite nicknames and also I wasn’t sure he deserved the boot last week, so I am kind of on board with this, even if no one else is.
The drama has been mostly eaten up by the quit-astrophe and the workroom stays pretty calm throughout the design time. We do see Christopher irritating Buffi for a hot second, which results in a smidgeon of karma. Also we hear unusually little from the nasty snarling Skunk this week, perhaps he has been descented?
In the end, the designer awarded the win was somewhat satisfying for a few reasons; however I felt there were actually two designs that deserved the win more. The loser also earned das boot for a myriad of reasons, and yet I hated one of the other low score designs more and felt there was a more just loser. So I guess this week I disagree. C’est les judges.
Love you all and your passion for the show. It is always a race to get the recap up before you all change my mind about how I feel about the results! Either way, please tune in to the full recap for details, snark and just maybe just a little pure nonsense!
