Several episodes. Never saw it before. I am so conflicted.

I love the crafts aspect. I know nothing about fashion, but it's still fun to see what people come up with, and to have my own opinions on the aesthetics even if they differ from the judges' opinions. The episodes I saw also were relatively inclusive, in that they featured designers and judges of a mix of genders, orientations, races, and nationalities. I like that a lot.

But it really bothers me that there's an unstated presumption that fashion is for women - because women are decorative. (Have there been challenges involving male designs? It wouldn't surprise me, but the default, to the point where it's entirely unstated, is women). And that leads to this unfortunate dynamic where women models - called "girls" by everyone involved - are treated as furniture. It's the same models throughout the competition, and they never speak, I don't even know if we learn their names. They may as well be mannequins, and it's hard to watch the models sitting silently while everyone else around them comments on their hair, their makeup, and basically treats them as semi-sentient hangers.
