Under the Gunn, Episode 6: "Pompeii Team Challenge"
Talk about drama. At the beginning of this episode, Nick's group members were given the opportunity to reflect on Isabelle's departure. Natalia and Stephanie, in particular, were surprised that Nick didn't stand up for Isabelle, and were pretty concerned about whether or not he would do the same for them. Regardless, the results of this week's competition left everyone shocked.
Tim Gunn and Emmy nominated costume designer Wendy Partridge met at the Getty Villa to announce this week's challenge. After watching the trailer from the movie Pompeii and seeing some of the designs Wendy came up with for the film, each team was given time to explore their surroundings so they could design garments based on the movie, the villa, and Wendy's designs. That's right, this was the designer's first team challenge, meaning each mentor's group had to work together as a team.
The groups were as follows:
Shan, Nicholas, and Blake (team Anya): Overall, this team appeared to work extremely well together. They capitalized on the fact that they were a team by all agreeing to use the villa's black and white tile design as their inspiration, checking in with one another before buying their fabrics, and working together to make their collection cohesive. They had nothing to worry about.
