P.R. Ep. 11: “Heidi has like… 105 kids”

This week the designers meet Heidi at Babies ‘R Us where she introduces them to her newest venture Truly Scrumptious, affordable clothing for babies size newborn-24 months. The designers are then challenged to create a look for her line, the winning boy and girl look is going to be sold at all Babies ‘R Us as a part of Truly Scrumptious.

Heidi provides the fabric and notions from her collection, then they are introduced their clients and given 30 minutes to sketch. When they reach the sewing room they find a dossier of the current Truly Scrumptuous collection along with baby mannequins and mechanical babies that they have to take care of during the duration of the challenge.

When Heidi comes in to check up on the designers she presents them with a twist, they also have to make an additional piece for the mother to wear in compliment to their baby’s look.

Top Boy and Girl Look

Boy – Sonjia

She made a great sportswear suit, the cutest three-piece suit ever. Instead of traditionally making a suit of wool she made it with sweat suit material, making this look very wearable and comfortable.  I love how she wanted him to look like a grown man, and her model Jude was the cutest baby ever. The mom’s look was gorgeous also, I would buy that look tomorrow if I saw it.

Girl – Christopher

Even though he had the most difficult, picky client, he did the best job in sticking to his guns and designing a formal set of floral dresses for both the toddler and mother. The femininity of both looks was whimsical and sweet, ultimately bringing him a win.

Bottom Look

Melissa

This tight ruched dress didn’t work for the toddler with her diaper hanging out of the bottom. Unfortunately, the vest that she made was awesome, but this dress just didn’t work for the busy toddler.

Who to Watch

Melissa – The designers complain about her time management skills, she barely finished this week. Her designs in general just aren’t memorable, thinking back through the past episodes I literally don’t remember any looks that she’s done.

I’m so excited for next week’s episode! The next elimination will bring the top designers to the Fashion Week collection and I can’t wait to see who goes home!

P.R. Ep. 6: Makeover My Friend!

For this week’s challenge people were able to submit their fashion fumbling friend for a total makeover, and the new clients are regular sized women. The designers seem pretty afraid… but try to keep a fearless face in front of their makeover clients.

Gunnar shows a softer side, when his model breaks down, and Ven is upset that his client is plus sized, while some of the other designers have model-sized, ‘regular’ women. He deals with his frustrations by bashing his client to Tim, and all of the other designers are shocked to overhear him speak that way. I don’t know who wouldn’t be shocked at Ven’s behavior, I personally think this week would have been good chance to get him voted off.I understand that he’s one of the best designers this season, but his attitude this week put a bad taste in my mouth. Everyone is given one day for the challenge which consists of one complete look, and the goal is to satisfy the client and their specific needs.

Top 3 Looks

Christopher

He created a dress that looked great on his model. It’s a simple but well draped garment that really stood out to me. The color is very wearable for many seasons, and this would be great for work.

Fabio

Fabio did the best job with the client that he was given. She was not a dress wearing woman before this challenge, and he met all of her needs and surprised everyone with this episode winning dress. The styling I thought was also perfect for the client, giving her a very wearable look.

Dmitry

 Dmitry did a great job pleasing his cleavage shy client this week. To make her look stand out despite the high neckline, he chose a great bright color, and made the dress a mini, which I thought were great concessions.

Bottom Look

 Ven

Obviously Ven was a disappointment this week in more ways than one. His look was mediocre, and his attitude was shocking. Ven was the bottom of the barrel in every way this week, I hope he can do something to redeem his image. I wish him luck.

Who to Watch

Ven… let’s see if he can win back people’s hearts!

Fabio – He’s finally got his rhythm, I hope he can sustain it.
