Dina wants her look to evoke 1950s Hollywood glamour.

I loved this series and I hope they continue it!

A very informative show as well as to how to creatively construct costume-like pieces to high-fashion designs.

I have an embarrassing soft spot for reality tv about fashion, but I couldn't get through even one episode.

i've been watching chris march's designs since i first saw him on Project Runway. he then reappeared on its all stars show. then i began reading his hilarious blog on that site. the man has the best laugh in the entire world of fashion. he brings all this and more to his own tv show. i watched them all this year: Project. Runway, Project Accessory and Work of Art. This show TOWERS over those shows. It is infinitely more creative. You get to watch the entire process. The clientele is all famous, going to fabulous events for which they need Chris's wildly inventive outfits. The team Chris has assembled works together flawlessly. Bravo, Chris and ENCORE!!!!!!!! If any show should be renewed for next year, it is this one!

This is a great reality show that I'm sorry had to end. It showed experts who helped give Chris March's vision come together. You've got experts in prop and wig design in addition to his team of seamsters. A very informative show as well as to how to creatively construct costume-like pieces to high-fashion designs. The personalities are great! But, mostly, I watched it because of Wig Master, Izzy (originally from Hawaii and now living in NYC with tons of experience in her field) is "sassy" and talented in her own right! We get to also see how Chris' designs come to life. Not to mention, the clients that he get to work with are "characters" themselves. It's a great season. Too bad Bravo decided to cancel. Hopefully another network will bring it back to life!

I have enjoyed Chris March since I saw him on Project Runway. I love the amazing creativity between everyone on this team to come up with what they do.

We very quickly tired of the silliness of the whole set-up. In my opinion, it's one of those reality shows where the people are trying desperately to prove how cool and now and vital they are to whatever industry they are. I have an embarrassing soft spot for reality tv about fashion, but I couldn't get through even one episode.

Well, these clothes are pretty horrible. The clients seem to be delusional and possible sniffing the devil's dandruff, if you catch my drift. I get that we are talking about "paparazzi fashion" - where their goal is to compete for press attention and be photographed.
However, can't we retain a shred of dignity? The answer is no.

Dignity is not for sale here. No, no it is not. Dignity is for the poor, who THANK GOD, can't afford to wear the hideous creations some of the Rich are getting up to. Rich people seem to want to be abused and cajoled into the idea of wearing, say, a huge ostrich feather black cape with matching bikini thong with black crystals & headpiece. All the better to be photographed in!

If this was me, I would have the following thoughts:

"Hey I'm in a glittery black ostrich cape with bikini underwear & headpiece, about to be in front of the worldwide press!
Am I 20 years old? Am I Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga? No? Then W... T.... F..... ?"

I seriously can not believe they talked this almost 50 year old, very fit (but seriously) woman into paying for and wearing this outfit. I'm the most "go for it" chick out there, but Dude. That was some craziness. She looked hot but it was like.. Maybe something a little bit more covered-up, just for the sake of Dignity. They should've at least given her a Body Stocking to go under it.

I don't know, that's just me.

If I was 20, and I looked like Miley Cyrus, I would've done the Wrecking Ball video, too. I'm no prude, and it's nothing more than what God gave you. Memorialize it before Gravity attacks. Hecks to the yeah. But I just think.... I wish this lady on this episode would've worn a Body Stocking.

D I G N I T Y. There is no Dignity for our generation. None.

I weep.

Chris March, Project Runway alum, is wildly imaginative. His long-time friend Matt, who fabricates much of Chris' designs, has amazing vision and skill. His entire team is very talented. The show is very entertaining. I'm sorry it didn't get picked up for another season. I hope Chris publishes a photo album of his fashion creations.

I don't know why, but just couldn't get into this series. I have watched Project Runway from Season 1 to date. I have viewed Fashion Star too, so thought I would like this. I just don't. Does not draw me in. Sorry guys.
