Let's start with the mini challenge. The designers were asked to design a shoe out of a template that was provided in 90 minutes. The team with the best shoes wins. What resulted were some of the scariest shoes I've ever seen. There was a little bit of everything, pumpkin colors, fringe, and the winners wedges by Johnny.
Of course after making shoes the elimination challenge had to be shoe related. The designers were whisked away to Bergdorf Goodman where they had to pick out a pair of shoes to inspire a whole outfit. As soon as Isaac said "Go" everyone was running around trying to pick the perfect shoe, only Angel couldn't settle on a pair and so was assigned one. Now here's the breakdown of who did what:
Angel - red, white and blue Stella McCartney sandals - a white shirt dress with blue accents in the skirt (runner up in my opinion)
Winners: The strongest looks are Reco's, Angel's and Daniella's and after much deliberation the judges award Reco as the winner. I can't say I agree, I thought Daniella's dress was much more interesting but Reco's look will probably sell better.
Losers: It's between Lidia, who's imagination got the better of her and inspired her to create a "coffin cover" as the guest judge called it, and Andrew who copies everyone and made a truly boring dress. Andrew is kicked off, now nobody has to worry about their ideas being stolen.
If you're like what you saw on this episode here are a few suggestions. You can also buy Reco's dress on Bravotv.com.
Since Reco's dress was the winner here are a couple of choices to replicate that look. Don't forget the cage shoes and eye patch :)
A shirt dress is a classic that never goes out of style. Here's one that caught my eye.
