Ask The Fashion Professor

FIT Fashion Professor, Anthony Cady tackles two more reader questions. The first is from Kathryn:

Dear Fashion Professor,

"The work 'talent' seems to get tossed around pretty liberally applied to fashion designers and Project Runway. What is 'talent' anyway'? Are the designers on the show 'talented'?

Who has been the most talented designer on PR in your opinion?



And this one is from Kate:

Dear Professor,

In today's BPR interview with Victorya Hong, she is quoted as saying, "I think Rami showed a strong collection as well, but I couldn´t understand his color story, and the progression of design."

What exactly doe these two concepts mean and how do they play into judging the success or failure of a collection. For example, I really loved JIllian's collection but have no idea why in the middle of it there was that black and white striped top with the loopy sleeves. What role did that play in her color story and progression of design.

Thank you.

Kate C
