Born in Hawaii and hailing from New York, Ivy Higa has access to best and most innovative trends. Browsing through her previous creations on the Lifetime website, I kept thinking that her clothes would not look too out-of-place in a show like Gossip Girl or 90210. With clothing that is simultaneously fresh and original, and at the same time, seems to have its roots in what's in-style at this moment, she's taking current fashion and tweaking it to fit her taste for the slightly-wacky. The blood-splatter dress and skirt don't look morbid, as much as pretty and fun. Though they are a part of the fall-winter collection, they are also girly and perfect for summer and spring. Her accessories are not as creative as her clothing - the necklaces are a bit dull and not as texture-rich as her dresses and shirts, but given different materials, and the time-crunch and competition-level, I don't doubt that she'll shine in that as well. All in all, I can't wait to see her compete against everyone else and incorporate a variety of different materials into her intriguing work. I hope the pressure will not affect her funky side, and she'll keep pushing the boundaries, kicking butt, and taking names!
| 20:29 EDT, 27 Jul, 2010
I have to say Christopher Collins
| 20:16 EDT, 27 Jul, 2010
Valerie Mayen would be my pick.
| 16:10 EDT, 27 Jul, 2010
None have really caught my eye but if I had to chose one it would be Christopher Collins.
| 14:35 EDT, 27 Jul, 2010
Valerie Mayen would be my top pick.
| 09:14 EDT, 27 Jul, 2010
I think I'm going to like Christopher Collins. He looks cute and I like the designers who can make cheap materials look couture.
| 23:59 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I think my favorite is Christopher Collins. Thanks.
| 22:06 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
Peach Carr. At 50 I think experience will kick in.
| 21:57 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
nobody jumped out at me, so I'll just go with Casanova from Astoria,Queens, NY cuz you basically had NOTHING to say about him, lol ;P ... but I LOVE this show & can't wait for it to begin!!
| 18:52 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
like to see what april will do
| 15:06 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I'm really excited about Ivy Higa! When I read " Samurai-inspired warrior coats? "Blood"-splattered dress shirts?" I was like oh man, I can't wait to see her awesome designs! luckysluna(at)
| 14:42 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I like the look of Jason Troisi. Just a good feeling!
| 12:22 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I like Kristin Haskins Simms although I don't care much about fashion.
| 11:53 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I like : Valerie Mayen ...she's from my hometown of Cleveland, OH so I'm hoping she does Cleveland proud!
| 11:13 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I like Kristen Haskins. I'm hoping she'll come in with some edge and spunk. She looks like she'd be the one I'd take style advice from!
| 10:55 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
April Johnston, hope she can bring some freshness to this season..
| 10:09 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I like Jason Troisi the best, he's got a rocker style.
| 02:47 EDT, 26 Jul, 2010
I am looking forward to watching what Christopher Collins can come up with. Denim...I am all in. Plus San Fran is my fav city of all time.
| 14:55 EDT, 25 Jul, 2010
I'll go with Christopher Collins. Be interesting to see if he can make casual runway worthy.
| 01:32 EDT, 25 Jul, 2010
I'm excited to see what Kristin Haskins Simms does this season. She's from Philly, just like I am, and it seems like she has a great background. Doesn't hurt that she looks the least crazy from her picture either.
| 21:37 EDT, 24 Jul, 2010
i am very looking forward in seeing what McKell Maddox brings to this season. the first impression might be she will be this seasons token crazy but whats not a good season without someone that is a little crazy? plus crazy can be great when designing. cant wait
| 07:27 EDT, 24 Jul, 2010
I think Valerie Mayen looks like a winner. I like that instead of edgy she designs girly items.
| 05:42 EDT, 24 Jul, 2010
I like Kristin Haskins Simms. I like what she's wearing, her choices are colorful and upbeat. I'm looking forward to season 8 and seeing her designs on the runway come this Thursday.
| 20:46 EDT, 23 Jul, 2010
I like Casanova, he seems very creative and fun. I bet he has a great sense of humor. This season looks like it will be awesome! They all seem talented. July 29, woot woot!!!
