Host, Heidi Klum tells the final four Anya Ayoung-Chee, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson, and Viktor Luna that they will be given $9,000 to create a 10 piece collection and only three designers will be able to compete in Fashion Week.
It’s been three weeks and it’s now time for mentor, Tim Gunn to hit the road and check on the status of the designers and their collections. He first travels to White Plains, Maryland to visit Kimberly. When he arrives, she shows him her work space and explains to him that the inspiration for her collection is an edgy urban girl. Tim likes what he sees and tells her to keep up the good work.
Next, Tim travels to Maraval, Trinidad to see Anya. After seeing pictures of a neighboring island, which is serving as her inspiration Tim asks to see some of her garments and she tells him she is having trouble drawing shapes. Tim advises her that from this point forward she needs to begin the construction phase because time is ticking.
Back in New York, NY Tim visits Viktor. His collections is called “Urban Coast” which is inspired by his trip to Mexico paired with a modern look. Tim is very impressed with Viktor’s collection.
Finally, Tim checks in with Joshua also in New York. After seeing the pieces Joshua has designed for his collection, Tim suggests that some of the fabrics are “sad” and “homely” looking prompting Joshua to scrap them. Joshua now has to come up with a different inspiration for his collection as time is running out.
It’s now time for New York Fashion Week. In order to select the three designers that will be showing at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, the judges want to see three looks from the contestants. After the four contenders meet for the first time since departing to go home and work on their collections, they unveil their designs in the work room. Tim meets with all of the designers again to see the three looks they’re showing the judges. Tim is satisfied with what Viktor has selected, he tells Kimberly she needs to center herself and decide what she wants to use, he explains to Joshua that he needs to produce a cohesive look and tells Anya she has a lot of the same look.
The models come in for their fitting then the designers tell the make-up arts and hair stylists the look they want for their runway show. After hair and make-up the models put on their outfits and everyone goes to the runway show.
The judges are Michael Kors, Nina Garcia and Heidi. After watching three looks from the final four designers the judges bring them back out to talk about their looks. Three of the designers will be competing at Fashion Week and one person will be out. The judges deliberate and choose to send Joshua, Viktor, Kimberly and in a twist–Anya to Fashion Week. Therefore, no one goes home and the final four continue on in the competition!
