"You’re Gonna Set Me On Fire, But You’re The One Who’s Going To Get Burned" — Tommy Hilfiger gives the design teams the daunting task of re-creating two legendary nightclubs: Studio 54 and The Cotton Club, on THE CUT, Thursday, June 23 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
THE CUT moves to its new time period Wednesday, July 6 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). When the 14 designers are split into new teams and begin researching the look of the nightclubs at the height of their popularity, a new alliance is forged on one team, forcing their surprised teammates to contend with a new strategy. Also, two designers with very different backgrounds get into a heated debate.
Meanwhile, designers chosen to attend fashion designer Alex Garfield’s, of Garfield & Marks, socialite party in the Hamptons create a very awkward moment when one of them decides to entertain the crowd with erotic poetry. Tensions mount during the style forum when Tommy criticizes several designers for their poor behavior and intolerable attitudes.
