"The Final Four on a Trash Barge" — The four remaining designers must demonstrate their ingenuity by creating an outfit out of material from a trash barge, on THE CUT, Friday, Sept. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Tommy tells the remaining four that if they are true designers, they can create clothes out of anything. To challenge the designers to prove this, he sends them on a two-hour trip aboard a trash barge headed to Staten Island from which they are expected to collect their material from the piles of trash. They have 48 hours before Style Council to create a beautiful outfit that will impress Tommy.
The four designers are also invited to Tommy’s house for dinner with his family and some one-on-one time, but the initially enjoyable evening turns uncomfortable when they start backstabbing each other in front of Tommy.
