Fashion Star - Ep.6 - Out of the box

Every week we were used to see what the contestants are capable of to design, what they want to design more exactly, the past week something was different.
The designers were asked to move out from their confort zone, and to design what they never tried before, to make something different.
However, this task was a challenge for some designers and managed to get out of their usual ideas, while others make something different but the result went wrong...
Let's see how this episode was.

The first two who were presented, was Luciana and Ross. Actually Luciana was very quiet when the show begun, but week after week she became stronger and succeeded to get back into the current of the competition and to show her vision. I consider her to be very powerful and talented. What about Ross? :) He is a very cute Southern guy and I love his ideas, week after week.
So, this week, Luciana designed a jacket, which are very cute, and as Jessica Simpson said 'every girl wants to have a similar jacket in her wardrobe' and I agreed with her statement.
She won a bid from the Macy's. Well deserved!

As the song 'Lady Marmalade' started, I immediately knew that something hot begins:) And what Ross managed to design, was a vintage inspired lingerie. Here they are:

I really love the design of the high waisted, pin-up styled lingerie; thanks to this design, he won at the H&M, and the buyer of the renamed market stated that this idea was 'never expected, but retro, sexy, French boudoir'.
The next two designers, whom works were presented on the runway, were Nzimiro and Sarah. Nzimini, (as Nicole Richie picked this nickname, which is actually really cute :) ), went for a bohemian like dress, because in the first weeks he went for menswear, so this was quite new for him.
As for the result, Nicole was a bit dissapointed, he could do much better, but he won! His work was successful at the H&M, it is perfectly 'fits their romantic, printed H&M line' and is 'flirty, romantic, commerciable'.

Sarah went for bikini, she designed a different cut swimsuit, there is a cut-out part on one sight of the bikini. Jessica Simpson would have been much more satisfied if the colors were more brighter...and unfortunately she didn't get any offer. This wasn't enough for the customers, and neither the time to go home!

One of my favourites, is Nikki, who in that week went wrong...or terrible. She went for menswear, and she designed retro pants and shorts. No one liked them, no wonder why!

The other guy, Ronnie went for swimswear for ladies. He designed swimming suits - scuba inspired, or bodysuits with zipper on them, which are extremely hot! He was afraid if the zippers can came off during the show.
The surprise of the night was Barbara for me, and I feel sorry for her..,But let's see what she designed. She was thinking to make a boho look. As Nicole Richie is considered to be the bohemian queen, and we know why she got this title, Barbara inspired from Nicole's clothes, from her brand 'Winter Kate'.

She designed three amazing green maxi dresses, were amazing in my opinion, but not for the buyers, that's why I felt sorry for her. Her dresses were said too overworked...:(

The best design of the night, in my opinion was Kara. It was seen week after week, that her vision goes for the practical side, nothing glitzy but for sophistication and high quality and simplicity. And yes, to make more different as we seen her designs in more darker color, is kind of unusual. This time, she shown her feminine and smooth side: Kara designed a long, feminine, soft dress. And she made it! She won at the Saks.

The other surprise of the night was Orly...She said she will design a super tailored, motorcyle kind of jacket. I thought it will be amazing, but I never imagined she will go with her idea of zipper...But, as for me, I liked them, because the jackets are multifunctional. Since the jacket is long, it can be zippered, and you get a more shorter one!My absolute favourite is that black combined with pink! I love it!

As usual, the final of the show is when the bottom contestants are presented and one is saved. Now, as the competition has headed, all designers on the bottom were called, namely: Sarah, Nikki, Barbara and Orly. Nikki was successfully saved by the mentors, while the designer who leaved the competition, was named. For a moment I thought that Orly will be that person, due to the constant 'zipper idea', but it seems that the buyers see in her something, and this is true. The one who left, was Barbara, as it was said, 'she is not the buyer's Fashion Star'.
