Santino and Nick's display is a disaster. It's all this nappy butcher paper with "Banana Republic Art Gallery" scrawled across it in paint. You maybe could make the argument that it's punk rock to have a kindergartner's penmanship, but you'd be hard pressed to make that argument convincing. Santino interviews that he glanced in the voting box and didn't see a single vote for him and Nick. He continues saying he "doesn't know how that's actually possible. But, whatever." Whatever, indeed. We see Kara and Zulema congratulate each other and clink their Dasani water bottles. Tim grabs the voting boxes and they head back to Parsons.
Heidi welcomes the designers to the runway. She introduces the judges: Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and Deborah Lloyd. The judges will determine the losing team. The runway show begins.
First up is Daniel and Andrae's design. It's a black dress with a drop waist. The bodice is loose. It's kind of like a flapper dress. The jacket is white with three-quarter sleeves. It's cropped, so it doesn't button; when the jacket is removed, you see that the dress has spaghetti straps. It's really cute. Daniel interviews that their concept was very "clear" and "Banana Republic." Andrae says that Rebecca looked "really sophisticated" walking down the runway.
Zulema and Kara's design comes next. Zulema interviews that this was "the achievement of a lifetime." It's pretty. It has a fitted bodice with spaghetti straps and a flowing skirt. Over the top, there's a white blazer. The blazer is sleeveless, with shoulder pads. It's cropped in the center, so it really only meets at the waist. It's not amazing, but it's not a failure. Zulema says she never again wants to be in the position she was in during this challenge. Kara says that their design was "clean" and could fit in at Banana Republic.
