Tim Gunn and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese greet the designers in Webster Hall.


The designers arrive at Webster Hall to find Tim Gunn escorting burlesque dancer and lingerie designer, Dita Von Teese, down the aisle. As it turns out, this challenge is all about shaking off traditions in order to design a nontraditional wedding dress. As long as the dress is believable for a bride, there are no rules. But, why stop at just one dress? Tim continues to explain that each dress must be accompanied by a reception dress that the same woman would wear on her wedding day. The designers will, therefore, be working in pairs to create two cohesive looks in one day with just $400.

The teams are as follows:

Fäde and Emily

Alexander and Samantha

Kini and Sean

Sandhya and Char

Amanda and Korina

This week's guest judges were Dita Von Teese and style blogger Chiara Ferragni. Only Amanda and Korina's team was safe with their black and white tuxedo-style wedding suit and short, retro-looking reception dress. The only looks the judges were impressed with were made by Kini and Sean, which Zac Posen deemed "the dream team." Sandhya and Char, on the other hand, were going for a flirty, girly look, but missed the mark with two bright yellow pieces that were messy and unfinished. Fäde and Emily's designs were well-received in terms of their construction skills and innovative techniques, but the judges thought their taste level was questionable. Finally, Samantha and Alexander were criticized for making dresses that looked old-fashioned, unoriginal, and overwhelmingly embellished. Even though Kini and Sean agreed that Kini deserved the win for their team, the judges gave Sean his second win in a row, and Char was sent home.

On to the designs...

Korina's suit was a disaster. I didn't get all the negative Goth commentray. It's a look. Samantha &Alexander's dress looked cheap.

Can't fault the judges for Char going home.

It was the top that won the challenge and Sean had not made it. He should have spoke up and admitted Kini had made the top. Kini is the best designer there and also too nice,so he gets taken advantage of.
