More real than Project Runway...

"I'm a fan of Project Runway and found I liked this little documentary very enjoyable. Seamless gives us a very real look into a struggling fashion designers world, no 8 hour challenges, no making clothes from flowers; just real people trying to get their struggling business to become a thriving, money making business. The 3 featured designers/design partners had all different personalities and made me want to go research them more."

"As a fan of Project Runway, I was thrilled to learn about Seamless, a documentary of the fashion world and young designers.
I truly enjoyed Seamless as it did portray the reality of the fashion world and struggles of the young designers to make it. (Like Heidi Klum always say, "one day you're in; the next day, you're out".) These designers are aware that fashion is highly competitive where many don't make it or experience short-lived success before folding. Those that are still existing and struggling, especially after 9/11, are in dire need of finances or mentorship. This is where Vogue, noted fashion designers and other "head honchos" come in to help out, via competition.
I do wish that the documentary was longer by following the other designers or by covering more aspects of fashion designing, production, etc. I liked how the documentary followed their personal lives, which made them like regular people... Doo-Ri and the fire, Alexandre and his transcontinental separation from his wife, and Lazaro and Jack's adjustment to one's relocation.
Overall, I truly enjoyed Seamless as it was educational yet entertaining."
DEFINITELY A MUST IN YOUR FASHION VIDEO COLLECTION!!

"if you are looking to become your own fashion designer and want to see the inside look of how stressful and how wonderful it is, get this dvd! you wont be disappointed, i do agree that they should have shown more of the designers points of view (they only follow 3 of the 10) but its extremely well informed dvd....get it! dont think about it!"
Wish it was like Unzipped

"I was hoping to see the same editing genius that went behind Unzipped. The stories were interesting. Just wished that we get to see more of the footage of designing at work because the whole premise is really about how they're fighting for the prize. Also wished that he interviewed the judges more to gain a better understanding of the whole thing."
