The competition is down to six designers! The new teams are Stanley and Michelle, Richard and Patricia, and Layana and Daniel. Tim meets the designers at the Guggenheim Museum to explain the HP and Intel challenge. He introduces the designers to new technology that is both a PC and a tablet.
The Guggenheim Museum is the inspiration for this week’s challenge. Each team is going to create a wearable avant-garde art piece with a companion look that is commercial and wearable. They use the computers to look up inspiration from the Guggenheim’s archives. The designers also have time to explore the museum and sketch.
Back in the design room, the designers create prints on the HP computers. Their files are downloaded and sent to the print maker. Tim announced that there is an added incentive to win this challenge! The winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize and an HP Envy X 2 computer.
Fashion designer Tracy Reese is the guest judge and designer Rachel Roy is filling in for Zac Posen again this week. The winning team is Stanley and Michelle and Stanley is declared the winner! He also receives $10,000 and a new computer. The pair is certainly on fire, as Michelle won the Lord & Taylor challenge last week.
Even though the judges didn’t like Layana’s creation, she and Daniel are safe. That makes Patricia and Richard the losing team. Sadly, Richard is sent home.
