Too much emphasis on the judges
I've been a devoted watcher of other fashion designer competitions. I've watched Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars for years. Now I am watching this and Next in Fashion. What I like about Making the Cut is the fact that contestants can return to the fabric store if needed, that there is a seamstress to assist them, and Tim Gunn. I have always been annoyed by the unnaturalness of the one trip to the fabric store for a project. It seems completely bogus to me. That they have a seamstress also seems reasonable. I have missed Tim Gunn so much. It is a pleasure to see him. He really seems thoughtful and concerned with excellent insight. What I hate about this show is split screens focusing on judges faces while a model is walking the runway, listening to judges make snarky comments during the show, and focusing on Heidi and Tim tooling around Paris sightseeing or whatever. I don't care if Heidi wants to dance on stage. I don't want to look at judges instead of the designers' creations, and I sure don't want to hear petty snarky comments from judges. This should not be about the judges. It is supposed to be about the designers. As it is, the designers are bit players and the judges are the show. I only care about the judges because their role is to elevate fashion, not show how they can outshine each other in in attention grabbing. If they want this to be about the judges, then name it How I Became A Devine Name In Fashion Critique. Having said all that, sone of these judges are clearly more concerned about actually functioning as judges instead of personalities. Edit this show! Quit showing split screens and airing snarky comments!
