Each team has to create 3 cohesive unconventional looks. They have 15 minutes to assemble as much material as they want, but can only leave the theatre with what they can carry. It is a one day challenge. Everyone goes crazy as they wildly grab all they can. Tim stops to ask if they're talking with their teammates. Really? When would they have time to do that and still have a chance to grab something good. Off it they go to the workroom to begin designing.

Zac - This is great. You're used text and fonts - something that immediately says movie kiosk. You've taken it to a new place. And you've used transparency in a really interesting way. You did something really cool. I'm going to expect really big things from you now. You can tell you guys vibed nicely together.
Heidi - You collection felt like the most original. It was cohesive, we have 3 completely different dresses, but they look like they belong in the same fashion show. It's really, really special. My favourite is the middle one (note - the one on the left above), it's so unusual. But also the other two dresses are stunning too. You did a fantastic job.
Nina - The most exciting part of this is the colour because right there you notice them. What I also appreciate is you gave me 3 different shapes. You have an A-line, you have a ?? and then there's this body con silhouette. I could see Heidi wearing that. It looked like they're together, but they're very different.
Garance - I think it was very stunning when the 2nd dress (on left above) started walking on the runway because the letters float. I thought it was very smart because you really created an effect. People would be like - Whoa, what is that? The green really takes the collection all together. I still can't believe you did all that in one day.

Heidi - At no point did no one think they all look the same? They look like 3 identical dresses. To me they look like 3 girls out of a music video. It doesn't look like a fashion show. For us now what we have to see is what is the worst one here, taking yours out Sandya because you're not in the running anymore. I feel yours on the right Hernan, at least it's a but more fashion with the piece around the neck - the bustier top even though it doesn't fit that great. What I love about this challenge is the designers manipulate the material. You guys just put the film roll on it.
Zac - This doesn't look complex, the shapes are a mess. The pieces are rough. No more excuses. We're looking at what we have in front of us. It looks like the editing floor.
Nina - Sandhya, you're very lucky you are immune because yours is the worst out of all 3. It's awful. It looks sloppy. It looks ugly. It just looks bad and it brings your other 2 down. I'm angry because I think we do expect a lot from you and you won the last episode.
Garance - I think it was way too literal. Why try to go glamorous with such a material that doesn't move with the body, it doesn't work together. I think that was one of the mistakes.
Obviously there are no judges comments to add to these, so the pictures will have to speak for themselves. I have added just a small note from their time in the studio when they discussed direction.
