Heidi Klum arrived on the runway holding the infamous button bag which means:another team challenge was presented this week! Bring on the drama. Each team had to create a capsule collection for Marie Claire @Work Magazine. Looks had to be editorial friendly while wearable enough to wear to work.
Team 5 consisted of Gunnar, Chris, Ven, Nathan and Fabio, also known as “Team SILK CHIFFONIES.” Team 6 consisted of Sonjia, Raul, Dmitry, Alicia, Elena and Melissa the team that couldn’t agree on anything.
Raul acted defensive and stubborn, determined to stick to his own aesthetic without compromising for the team in fear of getting eliminated again. Team 6 also left a bag behind at Mood, which caused more frustration to the group. On the other side, Gunnar felt like a tailor rather than a designer since he’s creating a look which he feels isn’t true to himself and hated all the micro-managing his team was putting him through.
Later on at the photo shoot (or Everyone Hates Elena time), designers styled and decided on final shots. Elena was giving everyone problems arguing that shots looked better without props, treating the other designers so harshly she was stressing me out!
Melissa won the challenge with her bold, chic dress. Both teams tied their scores but eventually it came down to equally unflattering designs from Raul (with his ruffled bib) and Gunnar (with the floating soufflé boobs). It seemed like Raul couldn’t redeem himself far enough in the competition and was sent packing home once again.
