Wow.
Vertical chevron will be burned into my retinas forever now! I was quite impressed with the top 3, especially the chiffon outfit.  Love the giant sleeve detailing, and how they attached at the back.  Great flow for such a tricky fabric, especially on stilts!
I liked Fallene for her personality, but that meltdown was a bit much.  Clearly she is not ready for the industry.  Her fascinator was quite nice, and I think she could have a future in hairpiece design (a perfect career for a hairdresser/designer).  Even with a proper bodice, that look could not have avoided bottom 3.
Viktor and Bert - UGH! I thought I would love Bert, but he has quickly become the one to hate this season.  I kinda wanted to slap both of them.
I do hope that the next challenge is more conventional.  I would like to see what the designers can really do.

This is super great!  I'm a sucker for old images and chair images, myself and I love how you made them fall and pile up.

Very cool piece!
You could also digitally manipulate the chair images with Photoshop or other similar software, and print the design directly onto the fabric using an ink jet printer and some freezer paper!

Wait!  How do you use freezer paper to print directly on fabric?  This could change my life.

LOL!
Cut your freezer paper to printer paper size.  Iron onto the back of your fabric and cut out fabric.  Now just run it through your printer as if it was regular paper (for paper setting, I would call it cardstock or some other textured base) . The freezer paper keeps it stable and allows the rollers to pull it through.  SUPER simple.  Works for text, clipart, photos, anything!  I have heard that you can use burlap too, but I imagine that could muck up your printer with lint pretty quickly.  I would stick with cottons in a quilt or home dec weight, or muslin.

I recognized her from the thumbnail.  She is so beautiful, Janis.  I love everything about her, from the drape of her skirt to her tiny bookish glasses.  You are FABULOUS!

Can somebody please explain Oliver's accent?  He was born and raised in Ohio until the age of 16, when he moved abroad and lived in England and Italy for a short period of time.  He is now only 22, yet speaks with a dramatic English accent? WTF?

I am never a huge fan of the unconventional materials challenges, especially this early in the game.  You cannot really get a good sense of a designers skills with dog beds, aquarium junk, and wee wee pads.
I am ok with Josh being out.  It was only a matter of time - but the dude with the wee wee pad hankie skirt had the worst ensemble.  I hope Bert loses the attitude for the next challenge.  I want to cheer for him!

This is pure awesomesauce! I thought Duckie was MUCH cooler than Blaine.

I like Bert.  Becky and Fallene too.  I kinda want to slap Laura Kathleen, and I am not sure about Anya and her 4-month sewing claims.
