Welp, my recording is starting with a full minute of Rachel Zoe, and I could not even make it through that. More importantly, I probably won’t get to see who wins at the end of this. Why can’t networks start and end on time and put their commercials in the last three minutes?! UGH!
The models this week will be ladies from the filming crew. This should be Ashley’s challenge. Ashley is used to designing for normal sized women.
There was not much drama in the sewing room until the second day when Tim shows up to do his critique and says that they will be fitting their models at the same time. I can already tell Swapnil has not much if anything to fit. He starts with Kelly. Her model lives in overalls. So she gives her more overall. WTF? Sure they are leather but the fit is already and issue. Candice has a decent dress on her dress form, but Tim says she has “taken away all your spice and given us a bowl of oatmeal.” I like the oatmeal. That said, it’s a little black dress. When you have a dark skinned model, you can really wow the runway with bold bright colors. She is missing an opportunity. Okay, when the model tried on the dress, it was bad. Candice is designing for herself and not the model. Merline’s model hates Merline. Or more specifically her big shoulder stuff. So , Merline gives her big shoulders. Ashley’s client is surprisingly unhappy. How can Ashley not know bigger women like to cover their upper arms? Edmond struggles to please his client as well.
Tim Gunn cusses out Swapnil. Let me repeat that. TIM GUNN CUSSES OUT SWAPNIL. There were a couple of bullshits and a “what is the fucking point!” I’m telling you the universe has gone mad this week. I’m clutching my pearls. Swapnil’s model is speechless. Tim Gunn and the client storm out. Swapnil says he is not the right designer for his model. Tim comes back in and says he is going to give them another fitting later today. Swapnil’s second fitting was not any better. Just before going down the runway, Swapnil’s model is crying.
Kelly’s leather overalls ended up looking fantastic. She married her aesthetic really well with the client’s look and this could be the winner.
Edmond’s look is okay. I like the dress. The coat is okay but it makes her look bigger. He doesn’t seem very comfortable designing for a client.
Swapnil continues to bitch about his model while he is walking down the runway. He should have given her a pantsuit. The model smiled and tried to help things out. I think the outfit was a bit much with the wings and the ruffle on the hip.
Candice improved her dress and overall it’s a good look. It’s just so black. And the wrap is … kinda slutty. There are also some fit issues.
Ashley deserves to be in the bottom She did a floral skirt with a very unflattering floral peplum and a plain t-shirt top. She probably deserves to go home for this.
Merline managed to pull of a GREAT look and her model rocked it.
I think Merline should win but Kelly is going to give her a tough fight. The judges will probably like Candice as well.
That leave me with a very surprising bottom three of Homeboy, Swapnil and Ashley! Thankfully someone quit and the Tim Gunn save has not been used yet. So I have a feeling everyone will stick around.
The judges all go in on Swapnil. Zac calls him a one trick pony. His model says she doesn’t feel confident in the look.
Did Ashley just say her pitiful attempt was something she could wear to a wedding? It looks like something from Dress Barn. Do they still have Dress Barns? The judges rip her and she cries.
The judges agree with me again this week! There really were only two decent outfits. Everyone is in danger, but Swapnil seems to have no allies. Will Tim even use the save on him?
Swapnil’s look is by far the worse on closer inspection. The top is not even sewn together it’s tied together and not even neatly. Looking under the cape in the back, it’s just a disaster. Ashley dodged a bullet. Candice’s work was also picked apart.
The judges think they should send two home this time. Kelly wins. It looks like they put Edmond in the top three as well. Swapnil is OUT. Candice and Ashley squeaked by. My recording stopped with Edmond packing up. Off to Google to see if Tim saved him. It doesn’t look like he did.
Do you think Tim will save Swapnil next week?
