Last week’s preview had already given us a sneak peek at which teams wouldn’t have their seams straight while working together.
Ra’mon first tried a full-body wetsuit look, but got smart and dumped it when Tim pointed out that it was a hot mess. Ra’mon then somehow pulled out of his derriere a sexy chartuese neoprene (which is synthetic rubber, I looked it up!) shift which he tie-dyed literally moments before sending it down the runway. Incredible!
For some, it was a beautiful outcome. I absolutely loved Althea and Louise‘s avant-garde piece. It actually looked like it could be a part of the guest judge’s Max Aria‘s BCBG collection. It was enough to get them moved on to the next round. Others, not so much.
After the runway show, Heidi called the bottom teams to the stage, and in an elimination shocker, Nicolas and Gordana were one of the bottom two. (Epperson and Qristyl were the other.)
Sure if they were designing for street-walkers, Nicolas’ hochie mama lace conception would have been a winner, but that wasn’t the case tonight.
Ra’mon took home the night’s gold for his avant-garde piece, and as I said above, even though he was their team leader, Mitchell was sent packing.
We still haven’t learned much more about the rest of the contestants, except that they’re fierce competitors. With so many competent designers working the PR runway this season, we’ll have to wait until we get down to single digits to see some real drama between these other players.
I’m truly excited for Ra’mon, as I’ll be viewing his Spring 2010 during NY Fashion Week next week.
I think I’ll arrive an hour early so he can whip me up something to wear while I’m seated in the front row. Take that, Anna Wintour!
