P. R. Episode 10: Dance with the Rockettes

This week the designers meet Tim at one of NYC’s major landmarks, Radio City Music Hall! They are introduced to the famous Rockettes who perform a short number. Heidi joins the kick line then announces the challenge: design a new costume for the rockettes.

The winning costume will be produced and worn during a rockettes performance. Linda Haberman, the Rockettes director and coordinator, asks the designers to make sure to keep in mind the variety of events they perform at, so the looks need to be versatile, glamorous, contemporary and have a modern aesthetic. Past costumes are presented so they can be studied by the designers, then they are sent to mood for fabrics. At Tim’s initial visit, he’s so worried about the designers looks that he sends them back to mood with an extra $100 to get  more materials, since sequins and crystals are so expensive, he wasn’t to make sure the designers amp up their looks. A few designers decide to stay back to work and not go to mood.

Top 2 Looks


He had a great idea and he ran with it! This is classic and beautiful without overdoing it!


Dmitry’s background as a professional dancer definitely helped him in this challenge. His look is gorgeous and the movement is amazing!

Bottom Look


Sonjia was confused the whole challenge and it really showed in her final look. It’s unfinished and the feathers are obviously not the best to dance in.

The season is almost over! Ven is gone, and soon they’ll be going back home to create collections! We can’t wait.
