After last weeks double elimination nobody is safe as designers
Out of the blue, last years contestant Robert Plotkin turned up to deliver packages to our designers. Inside the boxes were unflattering outfits that the designers had to wear to a mysterious location. An iceskating rink.
This is where the designers were presented with their latest challenge, to design a performance outfit for ice-skater Sasha Cohen.
Alongside out three regular judges was guest judge and client Sasha Cohen.
The following looks are ranked from my personal best to worst:
Zulema put out quite a simple look, but it was gorgeous. None of the looks this week were particularly astounding, but this one fit the brief the best. The design was intricate and feminine and the skirt gave enough modesty.
Kara had a pretty strong look this week! The styling was good and stuck to its own theme. The detailing was beautiful and the fringe skirt was fun.
Nick had a super strong design. The cut, colour and material were all beautiful, and the back of the dress and matching chiffon elements worked beautifully. The only flaw was the odd shaped bust making the model look like she has one breast.
Chloe seems to have used this colour material for every challenge, no? The dress wasn’t too bad, it fit well, it looked pretty and had nice movement. The only problem is for such a little performer, it could make Sasha look far wider than she is.
Andrae was a little lazy this week. The fit and styling of the garment was boring and ill worked, and the detailing was overbearing and ageing.
Daniel once again disappoints me. The entire thing was wrong, the colour, the fabric, the design, the length. It looked more like a club dress than a performance outfit. Plus, the models styling was terrible!
Emmett did not put out the worst look of the week, it was decent but just a little underwhelming.
Santino again did too much. While there were some strong elements to the garment, when put together they were all far too overbearing making the final product an eyesore. If he could learn to edit he may get somewhere.
