It was a fairly uneventful and drama-free episode of our Thursday
fashion fix. Besides Logan's silver pants and the complete replacement
of our entire panel of judges, there wasn't too much going on! The
challenge: please your client. Who's the client? Your model.
Admittedly, those girls did want some random things. Romantic punk
tiger? Blue and gold-rope jumpsuit? Yeah, the designers needed to pull
rank and design something beautiful for their models, despite what they
asked for. If you've ever watched PR, you know the designers always
know best. But some of them compromised nonetheless.
To the runway! There were some downright safe and boring designs, like Qristyl's
black off-the-rack look, and Johnny's egglant bridesmaid gown. Logan
also ended up in the bottom with his electric blue prom number, which
didn't capture model Koji's vision of 50s glamour with edge. Epperson,
however, finally showed his chops with a sexy criss-crossed dress even
though his model wanted orange. Carol Hannah showed her perspective
with a gorgeous juxtaposition of soft and hard in black and purple. But Althea
ultimately took home the prize this week with her very sexy
suit– and she deserved it! I would definitely wear it, and her model loved
it. Who displeased their model client and the judges, and took a hike?
This week it was Qristyl who, after skirting the bottom for a couple of
weeks, finally went out without bang, but with a boring black dress.
The judges – Jennifer Rade, Zoe Glassner and Marc Bouwer
Althea – the winner!
Logan – saved by the seat of his pants.
Qrystal – you're out!
