    I may have to watch this. I like the clothes. I like the clothes on the mannequins and some of the designers look great themselves 🙂 I find it innovative and kinda unexpected that they also have to ‘style’ their creations…cool. And model them too? ‘Cos they’re superwomen and supermen like that 😉 The really unexpected bit is the business plans. Never really thought about designers business planning; I guess they do. I may have to find and watch it sha. Looks interesting. Put it on Ebony Life TV and they can replay it a dozen times 😉 so I can catch it.

    I think they are eliminating contestants too fast or they are not getting enough sponsorship for the programme. I like it though…originality…
