The Art of Fashion
This week's episode was quite the roller coaster for the five remaining designers -- all competing for the change to compete at Bryant Park. First, the designers went on yet another field trip, meeting Tim Gunn at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Once there, the designers had had to choose an inspirational piece from one of three wings -- the Greek and Roman Sculpture courtyard, the European Painting wing, or the Temple of Dendur -- and create a look of their choice. While Rami, somewhat predictably, chose a sculpture of Aphrodite housed in the courtyard, all of the other designers chose various works from the European Painting wing. In the end, Christian's androgynous take on a Spanish painting wowed the judges, including guest judge Robert Cavalli. Jillian's ready-to-wear take on "Master of the Argonauts" also won high praise and a spot in the finale. In a Runway first, both Rami and Chris advanced, having to create final collections to be judged before competing in the finale. And unfortunately Sweet P was sent home, just shy of competing at Fashion Week.
