Korto wowed everyone and was close to stealing the win from Leanne. Undaunted, she wove dozens and dozens of taupe seatbelts to create a swing coat that was an homage to the mod 1960s of Courreges. This was no easy feat, and to be able to manipulate the belts in such a manner that they would drape with ease was a serious exercise understanding the grain lines of the textile (Blayne's problem). The result was spectacular! Rachel Zoe even declared that she wanted the coat for herself.
