Josh interviews tearfully that he wishes his mother could be here in the front row. There's the rest of his family though! He comes onstage and dedicates it to his mom. His show begins with beautiful purple one-shouldered dress. It's draped loosely and has a chain around the bare shoulder. It's really beautiful. Next is a short dress with the print he loves so much -- the one that made Tim sad. I have to say, I kind of like it. I understand where Tim's coming from (you could say it's a pastiche print like your grandmother would use to make your pillowcases for summer camp), but I think there's something about it that artfully pulls together a lot of elements of Josh's design aesthetic.
There's a short leather vest over the dress and I think it's pretty cute. Here are slacks with a tee of gray and violet. I love the color of the stripes. In fact, that's my favorite of the colors that he has shown maybe ever. Here's a shift skirt in green with a top in his print. Backstage, Tim says that it's beautiful and the collection is not trying too hard. Here are Josh's shorts with the ties. They are hardcore. I'm not sure who wears them. Here's that jacket from last challenge. It is still impressive, as his Little Black Dress. He added some Grecian draping qualities to his pantsuit and it looks a lot less labored. Also, you know, a lot less interesting. You've got to give it up to Josh -- sometimes his stuff was unflattering, but it was never boring. Right? Unless it was? I don't remember it ever being boring. Here's a low-cut dress in black with that plastic stuff at the shoulders. It is very interesting. You know, his styling is very good for this show. The wrong make-up and hair and this stuff could look really tacky. There's Josh C. in the audience! The show is over and Josh comes out and kisses his dad and sister.
It's Viktor's turn. He says that his heart is beating and he feels like he's going to faint. He comes out and faints. No he doesn't. He's just fine. He tells everyone that he wanted to create a collection inspired by a mix of Mexico and New York. What is he wearing? A really weird little vest over a short-sleeved shirt with a bowtie and cascading chain necklaces. And shorts. I'm not sure that would inspire a lot of confidence in the audience. Oh and there are tails on the vest.
