A few thoughts:  Perhaps it's my graphic design experience, because there is NO fashion background at all for yours truly, except for watching PR, all its incarnations, and all the copy cats ... but, if the background is more interesting than the clothes, if the body contortion takes the attention away from the garment and if the hat (or box) is more interesting than the outfit, something is wrong, right?  So, the prior work, it is a bit uneven, just like other seasons.

As usual, about half of them excite me, and I want to see more from them.  A quarter, I can't tell what's going on.   The other quarter, I can tell, and there's no need to see anything more.
So, this post is almost meaningless.    Hey, what do you expect from a blind man?
