The designers are asked to give each other head-to-toe makeovers. Each designer is randomly assigned to another designer and they begin the process of reinventing each other's looks.
Make-up and styling figure prominently into the makeover and to help with this, the contestants are given the services of world-renowned make-up artist Collier Strong.
In the end, some designers are thrilled with their new look while others are left scratching their heads. One emerges as the winner and one must return to the workroom to pack.
