Fashion Show Recap: Designing For High School Cliques Begets High School Bickering

From real women to teenagers, episode 6 of Bravo's The Fashion Show opened with a mini challenge that asked the nine remaining designers to create campaign slogan t-shirts for high school senior Giuliana's run for class president. The catch was that each designer had to target them to a specific high school clique (skaters, treehuggers, drama, nerds, etc.). Daniella won with her literal treehugger shirt, and also won immunity for this week's competition.

The following elimination challenge built on the clique concept, and each

designer had to create an outfit for a twenty-something woman inspired

by their clique.


Most of the outfits were indeed inspired, but some definitely missed the mark. Johnny, who unfortunately scored the jock clique, designed a strange tank top and shiny shorts combo and then put it over fringed leggings. Hmmm. Angel landed in the bottom two again with her B-girl ensemble that included wool office-wear pants (of different hem lengths) and a shiny puffer vest.

Guest judge Charlotte Ronson did not heart this outfit at all, and Angel was sent packing.

The Fashion Show, Episode 6, Merlin's winning design

Alas, Merlin's tears of frustration were for naught as his Mean Girls-inspired sheer top, fitted jeans, and creative sweater won the audience over. Unfortunately the sweater is not for sale but you can certainly take home the Mean sheer top ($95) or Mean cut jeans ($150).
