I love Project Runway, enjoy seeing the design process. I used to work in the fashion industry, so I can relate to a lot of the issues the designers face. I like to imagine what I would design for each challenge, and how I would fix the problems the contestants create.

But I almost never agree with the judges. Sometimes they love the most awful stuff, and hate things that I like.

Do you tend to agree with the judges?

I tend to agree with them 95% of the time.

I really like the Moldovan girl and the older lady on this season's show. They seem to be better than the other designers.

I tend to agree, but most often the designers who are in the middle include the one who is my favorite. I’ve liked everything Nancy has made.

Victoria from Moldova seems to have a limited range; all her pieces look too similar. It's good to show your aesthetic, but there should be more to it than shoulders, straps, and asymmetry. And she can't take any kind of criticism or advice--she ignores it or wants to quit. I thought her tuxedo outfit gave the model nasty belly bulges, but the judges loved it.

I like Nancy mostly because she's older--I can relate. I like some of her designs, but some are just so bulky that the person inside gets lost.

I like some of Sergio's designs, but his know-it-all attitude, and simplistic activism (the 1950s were a high point for America because one breadwinner could support a family?!?) turn me off.

Marquise makes some beautiful clothes. Loved his tuxedo jacket. I guess I don't always disagree with the judges.

I agree with them about 45% of the time I haven't watched the current shows-- it's been a while since I've had access to whatever channel it's on. I used to watch it religiously and I definitely did not always agree. I think it speaks to the fact that I'm not a fashionista?

It's 50/50 with me!

I do miss Tim Gunn & Heidi Klum, I think they should be back in PR!

It's too late for me to edit, but I've been watching the Netflix show Next in Fashion and WOW, do I disagree with the designs they love the best a good chunk of the time!
