Lauren liked Reco's dress. Jeffrey Banks liked Johnny's dress. He thought it well-executed and fashion-forward. Chuck Amos liked Angel's dress best. The designers return to the runway, where the judges await. Isaac congratulates them all for doing a terrific job. He reminds them that one of them is going home tonight.
George Malkemus is the guest judge. Isaac thinks that it showed that they were having fun and was the best fashion show yet. The audience favorites were Angel's, Daniela's, and Reco's dresses. 90% of the audience said Reco's dress was fashion-forward. He says that he wanted to create something modern. Isaac says that the cut of the boot makes the length of the dress really important, and he feels that Reco got the proportions correct. Reco also says that he created the hat that his model is wearing because he was bored. George compliments him on bringing the lattice of the boot to the head. Fern compliments him on the intricacy of his work. Kelly tells Daniella that an audience member called her design "sleek and sexy." She says that she wanted to be forward, and she didn't want to match her shoe too completely. She liked the "moodiness" of the eggplant color and the contrast of fabric. Kelly thinks she pulled it all together beautifully. Fern compliments her for truly being inspired by the shoe. Though the colors don't match exactly, the stitching on the front of the bodice matches the shoe. Isaac likes that the shoe has nothing to do with the dress, except in Daniella's crazy imagination. He says it reminds him of a butterfly. Really. George loves that her design makes you look at the whole woman, not her shoes. Kelly tells Angel that some people in the audience thought her dress would be great for the Hamptons. Kelly loves it. Isaac commends her for creating this design when she was given the shoes to be inspired by. George thinks it looks like a girl in a double shirt was dancing and got hot and tied it around her waist. He loves it. Fern asks her for her inspiration and she says that she just got the idea of a simple white shirt. Then, she tries to explain how the dress can be worn as a double shirt and I don't understand. The judges are all very impressed though. George says that Bill Blass once said to him that the hardest thing to design is a simple white shirt, which she has done. Fern congratulates all of them. The winner is... Reco! He's thrilled. Eh, I think it should have been Angel.
Now, for the losers. Isaac says that two of them stumbled. They are Lidia and Andrew. Hmm. I wasn't expecting to see that. And, he's cute. The rest are safe. The audience thought that Andrew's design was boring, uninspired and average. We see Haven and Anna smiling and nodding at each other in apparent approval. He says that he was trying to play with shape -- and he was thinking about salability. Isaac says he should have been thinking more outside the box. George disagrees with him, as a salesman. Isaac punches back -- this isn't The Salesman Show. Okay, but George thinks that a lot of women would buy this dress. Fern just wanted him to be more inspired. There's no color, and she really wanted it to be better. Kelly tells Lidia that her dress made her model look like The Nightmare Before Christmas. A favorite of many. Again, more laughs from the fucking peanut gallery. You'll have your day too, Anna. She says that she would have improved the design with more time, but Isaac reminds her that he warned her about time. Kelly asks her what she would have done with more time. George thinks that her design is amateurish, like she just got her first Vogue pattern, and someone sent her home to make a dress. She gets a little teary and says that she probably pushed her envelope too far. She tells them that she quit her job to be here and this is her chance to pursue her dream. George replies that her work today is not an example of why she should have quit her job. Ouch.
