Under the Gunn, Episode 2: “The Mentor Face Off”

Mentors Anya Ayoung-Chee, Nick Verreos, and Mondo Guerra have just one more chance to fill up their teams. With seven designers left to show their work and only five spots available, two designers will go home.

Tim Gunn met the remaining seven designers outside of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising to explain their next challenge. With containers of fabric bolts dispersed throughout the lawn, the designers were given 30 seconds to grab as much fabric as they could. They were then given six hours to construct a look that demonstrated their point of view as designers.

The format was similar to last week. The mentors visited the designers in the workroom, viewed their portfolios, and finally critiqued them on the runway. Anya chose her final team member, while Nick and Mondo filled their two remaining spots. Both Amy and Rey were eliminated.

On to the designs…

While this show seems to have some good modifications, in comparison to Project Runway, I’m not completely sold on the fact that the mentors were able to choose their teams before meeting all of the designers. I think that Amy’s dress, in particular, was good enough to get her drafted for the competition, but the mentors simply did not have enough room on their teams.

    Isabelle is a train wreck and that is going to mean trouble for Nick.

    I personally felt that Amy should of been in the running. I thought her dress was very original and I would of bought it. Who I felt was not good enough to be in the competition was Nicholas. A t-shirt made into a dress is nothing new. They have been around for years. I think the mentors made a big mistake. They dismissed Amy's talent due to her age! Big mistake, big big mistake!
