This episode opens with Heidi walking out on the runway with a clue for the next challenge, a duck named Fred on a leash. Fred even quacked on command! Back in the workroom, the designers found colored duct tape everywhere. It’s another unconventional challenge!
Duck brand duct tape launched a challenge called Stuck at Prom where students create prom dresses out of the tape, and this is exactly what this challenge is! The designers are making prom dresses out of the duct tape. The contestants are going to meet with high school students, who will judge the looks. Their feedback counts for 20 percent of the judge’s scores.
This challenge will involve teams of two and designers have less than a day to create a duct tape dress! In the evening they will go to the high school, so they only have the daytime to finish. Here are the teams: Stanley picks Layana, Kate chooses Tu, Michelle picks Amanda, Richard chooses Daniel, and lastly Patricia ends up with Samantha.
There is a fashion show in the high school’s gym and afterword, the students get to chat with the designers and ask them questions. The https://www.fountainof30.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=69768&action=editstudents put their vote on one of the team’s boxes.
The next day, designers have an hour and a half to prep for the Project Runway catwalk. Heidi reveals Patricia and Samantha got the most votes from the students! She also mentions the winner will have money donated to Autism Speaks in their name, paid by Duck brand duct tape. Designer Chris Benz is the guest judge this week.
Tu and Kate’s team and Daniel and Richard are in the bottom. Stanley and Layana’s team and Michelle and Amanda are praised for their design. Patricia and Samantha’s design was pleasing to the judges also.
Michelle and Amanda are the winning team and Michelle is declared the winner! The judging was very close. Kate and Tu end up at the bottom and Tu is out. So sad! In a twist, Kate is out as well. We’re even more sad!
