Runway's Kenley Collins weighs in on this week's Fashion Show designs.

This episode of The Fashion Show was about cliques in high school. I love this challenge!

In the mini challenge, the designers did horrendous graphic tees for the student presidential election, granted they only had an hour. I think it was clear who the winner was in this challenge - Daniella, who did a clean, fun, detailed graphic of a tree. The rest were sloppy and poorly designed.

For the elimination challenge, they all kept the same clique as their inspiration for their garment.

Daniella’s, once again, was the best. Although her point of view of a tree hugger is being dirty and sloppy, she still pulled off the most clean and interesting garment. It captured 'tree hugger' by the earth tones, cool hoodie and earthy details.

James-Paul did the most adorable preppy, corky Ralph Lauren-esque sweater and pant. I loved the plaid patch in the back of the pant and detail on the sweater. I would wear that in a heartbeat.

I thought the rest weren't very impressive.

Reco had drama, which I didn’t see. He did a pretty white dress that was way too short for my taste and the proportions of the overall look were unflattering. That vest was too tight and little. It looked almost silly. However, I do think he will make it to the end with Daniella.
