We’re all DYING to know.
But first the designers have to get back to business, and get through their next challenge. Which surprisingly, involved a business portion. Each designer was tasked with creating a ready-to-wear look that could translate across the nation for a specific retail price. Those most interesting portion of this was learning that Mondo’s $300 dress was made for only $32. Kind of makes me want to save some cash and take up sewing my own clothes.
As they sit down to go through the math, all of designers are under budget with the exception of Kenley, who must, with a HUGE sigh, trim half-a-yard of fabric in order to keep the cost of her garment down.
After many discussions about the dying garment industry in New York, the designers were ready to showcase their high-profit looks.
CHALLENGE WINNER: Mondo, which surprised me a little, although I thought the silouette of his design was spectacular and would suit many body types.
PERSONAL FAVORITE: Austin. I want that raincoat in my closet. Now. Except that it costs $500.
SENT PACKING: Kenley. Yawn. Loved the print, especially since it didn’t involve polka dots for once. But her design was so simple it was boring.
PERSONAL WORST: It’s a toss-up between Michael and Kenley. Both were too simple for this high-stake challenge.
