Rock ‘n’ Runway
Just a heads up to everyone… this thread will contain spoiler information for this week’s episode. If you don’t want to know who got auf’d, don’t read any further.
After the recap from last week, Heidi tells the designers they get to repick their models, and brings out the remaining eight models. As the winner, Jerell gets first pick, and he chooses to keep the model he had. Kenley elects to take auf’d Joe’s model. Leanne decides to take Suede’s model, which doesn’t sit well with Suede. Suede makes his choice, and then Korto makes her choice.
To find out their next challenge, the designers report to the work room to meet Tim. This week’s challenge is to design for each other. After each designer learns who his/her client is, Tim announces there is a twist. The look they are to design is to be inspired by a specific musical genre.
The pairings are:
Jerell designing a pop-inspired look for Kenley.
Suede designs a rock’n’roll look for Jerell.
Kenley designs a hip-hop look for Leanne.
Korto is to design a punk look for Suede.
Leanne is to design a country look for Korto.
After one hour of meeting with the clients, they are off to Mood to spend their $150 budget, and then back to the work room to work until 1:00 a.m. The other designers are laughing at Kenley behind her back because of what she thinks hip hop is.
Now, for the runway:
Judges comments: Leanne’s design was subtle, needed glamour. Jerell: sexy, but not vulgar. Kenley: most unflattering pants they’ve seen. Korto: right on the money. Suede: vest is cool, but pants are “expected”.
The winner is… Korto. Jerell, who was hoping for 3 wins in a row, had to settle for leaving the runway in second place. Leanne is also safe.
Kenley is in, so Suede is out.
