Six designers are left and now it gets very, very interesting. They
are all talented to have gotten this far and one bad design and it's
"out" for them. But they are now tired and losing inspiration
quickly. This week's challenge was to draw inspiration from
three birds that they had, a raven, a parrot and a cockatiel.
Everyone was paired up but the challenge was to compete
against their partner. Each pair had a losing and a winning
look. That certainly changed the dynamics of the outcome.
But the winner would have a spread in Marie Claire magazine
as well as winning $20,000.00 from Loreal Cosmetics. That
is a lot of incentive!!
They were give two days and $300.00. At this point you
can see that they all work hard and have great ideas so
it's routine to watch them work on the garmets. Kimberly
burned her dress with a glue gun and cried in the bathroom
but that was the extent of the drama this week. Everyone
seemed to enjoy Bert now and treat him with respect which
is nice to see. Later in the day Tim came in and announced
a small twist - another look inspired by the bird was to be
made - another $300.00 and another trip to Mood. They
moaned, they groaned and sewed and sewed. Tim then
announced (after having them drop their scissors) that
only one look would be used and to use the rest of the
time on that one design.
The runway show was a success and it was hard to have
to choose a winning and losing look from the three pairs
but the judges did it. Lots of pointers for the designers
who should know exactly what is expected from them by
now but sometimes forget. Anyway, Bert was out but
seemed sincerely grateful to have gotten this far. Anya
won the challenge and Joshua had a small bitch fit and
whispered about how her model had to be cut out of
her dress. Those two may have a big fight before this
season is over. We're down to five and only three get
to go to fashion week - who will it be???????????????
