"I would say that I sort of define myself as an artist and I'm working in the direction of fashion design."
Feh. Too much was made of this fairly innocuous (coming from a recent college grad) remark, we say. Hello? She's like a fetus. Give her some breathing room. You said shit like that when you were fetal too.
And uhhh....thus ends the "defending her" portion of our program.
Hey, we're all for simple. But here's the thing about that: if you're going to go very simple in form, then, a) It should be a tasteful and interesting material,
and b) It needs to be FLAWLESS.
She kinda failed on all counts.
It's a dull dress and a poor choice of fabric for it. Somehow she managed to make glitter look depressing.

Captain Hook? That guy on the rum bottle? Help us out here.
And while you're at it, help us out here. Because man, we just don't get it.
She's like a business woman, then? With the pencil skirt and the plaid and all that?
But her shoulders get really hot? Is that it?
And she slept in this outfit last night? Is that the story? Or wait, she put on everything upside down for some reason? We're confused.
All joking aside, we really didn't get this look at all and we REALLY didn't get it when he went on and on about his tailoring skills being evident in the piece. Credit where it's due: he did make three pieces and lined one of them. It doesn't excuse the bizarre fit and incomprehensible concept behind the outfit, but points for ambition.
"I like fashion that takes risks."
Okay, fair enough.
We'd argue that slapping a big ruffly fungus on a dress ain't exactly unheard of in the fashion world, though.
Like so many of this year's crop of designers, she's gonna have to figure out how to self-edit on the fly. We like the basic concept of the dress and we like the way she used the colors, but that piece is simply way too big. One third the size and she'd have an almost perfect look.
But there's a second problem here besides lack of editing. This dress fits her terribly. Tight around the ass and weirdly loose in the front. That looks like a technical issue rather than a design issue. The basic dress is as simple as it gets. She should have been able to pull off a better fit than that.
