BPR Love for Johnny Sakalis

Let's forget about the hype. In Episode 1 we met someone who had battled a methamphetamine addiction and was, in part, inspired to turn his life around by the desire to get on Project Runway. That said more about your character and your strength than anything else; you put your mind on a goal and you achieved it. We watched that episode and saw you reach out to Tim and get what you needed - reassurance and a hug - and we saw you in the top three. This week you struggled with your garment but Zoe Glassner liked where you were going with your look, with the 80's and pop-art inspiration, and "was going there with you." Tommy Hilfiger admired the print you created and Eva Longoria appreciated your idea. Your talent is evident and, hey, you are one FIERCE runway walk coach.

This post is only for positive words for Johnny Sakalis. If you have negative commentary or something to say about another designer, you may do so in our Reactions post here
