Tonight's episode is Finale Part 1... The designers go home to work on their collections. Dom and Bradon have guaranteed spots for New York Fashion Week already, while Justin, Helen and Alexandra are competing for the remaining spots for Fashion Week.
The designers have six weeks to design and construct a spring collection with a budget of $9000. Two last minute challenges are added - one outfit needs to be constructed with unconventional materials and the second outfit must be "wearable and washable" for the Tide challenge. Tim Gunn will visit each of the designers at their homes.
His first stop is in Philadelphia to check in on Dom. Tim visits her family at the restaurant where she works at night. Then they are off to her studio to check in on her progress. Her concept is "Retro Futurism" inspired by the film Bladerunner. Tim seems impressed with her collection thus far. She is making her own textiles and the preliminary sketches look amazing. Tim then proceeds to visit the other remaining designers.
Dom and Bradon head back to the Refinery Hotel and are soon joined by Justin, Helen and Alexandria. They are back in the workroom looking at each others final designs. Dom's collection is looking strong. Once again she is the master of prints.
Justin, Helen and Alexandria are each presenting three fashions on the runway. Tim's workroom critiques are a bit rough. Dom helps Helen get ready for the runway. Runway time... Justin and Alexandria will be joining Dom and Bradon at New York Fashion Week and Helen is voted out.
