Remember the cliffhanger last week when Michelle got a do-or-die moment? Well, she’s not going home this week and can redeem herself during this challenge. This week is huge because it determines who is going to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Each designer will go to a different European country for inspiration! They will each visit a fashion capital and will have the opportunity to buy the textiles for their garments there as well. Layana is going to Barcelona, Patricia is flying to Paris, Daniel is headed to Berlin, Stanley is going to London, but Michelle is staying in New York because she was saved at the last minute. The trip is only for a day though!
The designers will also get sewing assistants who will travel with them. Samantha will be with Layana, Kate will be travelling with Patricia, Amanda will be assisting Daniel, Richard will be helping Stanley, and Tu will be staying behind with Michelle. The designers must create a high-fashion runway look and the budget is $1,000.
After the whirlwind European trips, the designers are back in New York to work on their looks.
Grammy winning singer/songwriter John Legend is the guest judge this week. The judges liked Daniel, Stanley, and Michelle’s looks and didn’t like Layana and Patricia’s outfits.
Stanley, Daniel, Michelle, and Patricia are going to New York Fashion Week! Michelle redeemed herself this week. Sadly, Layana did not get chosen.
