In this challenge, the designers had to race through Madison Square Garden to choose their fabrics, which they would use to create looks that represented them as a designer. Lots of creative freedom on this one!

Duncan Chambers-Watson should NOT have gone home. Yeah, his styling was bad, and yeah, he should have made it a more open back and it probably could have been better as a calf-length to give a breath of skin. But it was his FIRST TIME DRAPING!! Cut him a break. The fabric was totally not that bad. He tried something new and it didn't work out. That's worthy of a second chance, at least.
But CONGRATULATIONS, ASHLEY!!!!
Honestly, I would love to see a curvy girl take this whole thing. Throw some plus size models on this runwaaayyyyy!
