Sadly, the buyers don’t buy that. Nikki recognizes the goal for partywear, but Oscar needs to focus on the quality of the fabrics he chooses. Ross is also shut out. Nikki chastises the heavy tweeds and feathers, while Terron says there is too much in the embellishments. Orly, surprisingly, also gets no bids. Caprice says she struggled, but the hanger appeal of these dresses just didn’t justify a bid. Oscar throws an unintelligible fit backstage.
Montage time. Luciana Scarabello, Nikki Poulos, and Edmond Newton all get no offers, and that’s all we see of them. This is the second week for Luciana to get stuck in the montage. She’ll probably get cut next week. Nzimiro Oputa and his engineering experience risked his career to go into fashion design without a backup plan. For the first time, all three buyers offer a bid on his cute men’s shirts. The $50,000 bid from Saks is outdone by the $70,000 from H&M and Macy’s, so Nzimiro chooses Macy’s. The first all-bid, and it’s given the montage treatment?
The final group is ready to go. Barbara Bates is hoping for the best after getting no bids last week. Sarah Parrott admits that she does not know her customer. She also hates her current look, which is a drab-looking skirt. Jessica suggests a wider waistband, but worries that Sarah consistently pushes herself to the time limit. Lizzie Parker concedes to gravitating to muted colors due to living in Seattle, but she hopes she doesn’t go home due to being true to her brand. John says Sarah is all over the place as she continues to fuss over her designs. Sarah decided to toss the original skirt and opt for wide-leg trousers. They started to look like fancy prison clothes to her, but she reasons that at least these are better than the original skirt idea. Lizzie hopes Sarah’s risky business and her own safe play both work.
The final show of the show is set to an unknown song. Seriously, I can’t even find the title of this song after Googling the lyrics. Anyway, Lizzie’s blouse with bat sleeves seems a little meh to me. The look is cute, but nothing new, and the colors are a little too Seattle. Heck, they’re barely Portland. Barbara’s leather tunic is well done, even if the brown piece looks like a potato sack. Sarah’s white-with-black-stripes tuxedo pants are simply awesome. The blue pairs I could live without, but that black-on-white alone is worth a bid.
Jessica says the bat sleeve is trending, but Lizzie’s color choice needs to pop. John says Barbara stepped up her game. Elle loves Sarah’s pants, as does Nicole. She would not have gone with two blues, but the white is a star design. Jessica praises Sarah for pulling this design out of nowhere.
Lizzie receives no offers for her sleeves. Nikki advises more colors, and Terron wants more than just another top. Sarah loses Macy’s and Saks, but H&M offers $50,000. Sarah is so surprised and feels much more confident. Nikki loves the tailoring and the fit of these “tuxedo for day time” pants. Barbara also loses Saks and Macy’s, and H&M is out, too. Terron asks who the customer is. Barbara says she is the customer. Terron advises to extend the zipper. Barbara says she will if he makes an offer. Nice try.
Week two gives us only four successful designs, so nine designers face elimination. Similar to last week, the idiotic montage treatment of Luciana, Nikki, and Edmond means that they are safe. Orly and Barbara got some love for their designs, so if one of them falls in the bottom three, the mentors should save them. The bottom three should be Ronnie for his silly zippers, Ross for his seasonal slipup, and Oscar for his… um, Oscar-ness.
The buyers choose their bottom three, and Oscar, Ross, and Lizzie are in trouble. Ronnie dodged a major bullet in my opinion. John speaks for the mentors and says that one designer has the spark to stick around for another week, so the mentors save Ross. I do like his tailoring, so I’m okay with that.
Terron says Oscar can do so much better than the choices he made. Caprice is so sad to see Lizzie here, but she needs to show more creativity. Nikki says the designer leaving is… Oscar. I’m glad Lizzie is getting another chance, but I’m surprised that they are getting rid of the drama master so early. Oscar hopes he can inspire one human being to be the best he or she can be.
Remember, hopeful writers, I’m only in this until someone overthrows me in a bloody coup… I mean, e-mails RNO about your desire to cover this show. If the ratings don’t improve, this could be the only season, and if you like it enough, take the opportunity now! Otherwise, see ya next week!
