Hmmmmm...What could this be?



That's right! It's a detail from The Outcast's Olympics Fashion Weak Collection. Now, think about it...Of all of the designers who made it onto the show (and were eliminated) how many of them have produced a collection and shared it with us? How many of them have subjected themselves and their designs to public scrutiny like The Outcast? I have a genuine admiration for Karen Garrett. She is certainly dedicated and I hope she tries out for PR3!

What in the world has Karen been up to...hmmm?

I guessed right-ish!

I think that if Daniel Vosovic Santinoed his pieces, then they'd look like this collection. It's simple, yet embellished and sometimes over the top (that last gown). It's a good collection, but I was actually more impressed by her awesome purses. She should sell those for sure.

Thank you Karen for letting me be a small part of a truly groundbreaking experience! You inspire me and all of us on the PO web team. THE OUTCAST will always be remembered as the first true home "paracontestant."

Who can argue with the likes of the divine Tim Gunn, when he said "You are fabulous!" As always, his insight [his genius BTW] is uncanny.

See you on PR3. You have proved you can hang.

I think your work is beautiful, and your handbags are exquisite. Also, what a sharp business woman you are! You have to create the line anyway (that's whay you do), so hats off to you for creating the stage on which to show it. You have inspired me not to wait for others to give me opportunities, but to make them for myself.

Not only do I have tremendous respect for Karen for doing this, but I love her sense of humor.

The NYT dress, the "Fashion Week tent" joke... Especially after she got universally panned for her Banana Republic outfit.

I'm sure she'll do well, whether she tries out for PR3 or not.

I love the aqua purse! Very cute - I actually was imagining it as part of my wedding outfit - the something blue part.

Hmm...better than I thought. I really liked most of them. I liked the patterns used since I like abstract lines. Overall, it was pretty good. Nothing that "WOWed" me, but not a bad showing. I really HATED the last dress though. That one was awful.
