Kate Pankoke was voted back from Season 11, for whatever reason, and she bonded with Helen Castillo, who spent so much of her time getting emotional that it was a struggle to watch.
But she wasn't even as bad as time bomb Sandro Masmanidi, who quit, or Ken Laurence, who just got way too mad.
He gained fame for being a contestant in the first season reality TV series "Project Runway”, and for his signature style.
Unfortunately, he was eliminated during the 9th episode, wherein the designers were tasked to create a red carpet dress for reporter Nancy O’Dell.
Season 12This is another one with a great winner -- Dom Streater -- but a mixed bag along the way.This graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology also studied at the Art Students League of New York.Since being on the show, he has showcased his own couture line and became Creative Director the Kenneth Pool collection from the bridal design house Amsale.It brought out the worst of the show without really giving the designers a chance to be truly creative and show their individual talents to the audience. Swatch (the dog at the NYC Mood), the heart of the show, wasn't there and things just weren't the same in L. There weren't too many standout moments this year, other than eventual winner Irina Shabayeva getting the nickname "Meana Irina" even though she wasn't even that mean... Season 9The 2011 season had a tough start when we had to watch the 20 designers pitch themselves to the panel to earn one of the 16 spots. But it was really frustrating that so much of this season focused on Anya Ayoung-Chee having no sewing experience and not even knowing how to make a sleeve.It was frustrating, and even though the season gave us a strong winner in Michelle Lesniak, a good winner can't save a troubled season. She still won the whole season, despite doing a very basic (but still very Anya) collection that belied all the usual construction/improvement criticism.
