Fashion Show Recap: Results May Vary When Designing For Isaac

For episode 7 of The Fashion Show, designers were back in teams for the mini-challenge, where they had to make over Harper’s Bazaar staffers from night to day (yes, the presumption is that they slept in those cliched outfits) by using their clubwear and stuff from the lost and found.

And what did winners Johnny and Merlin get? An extra five minutes with (surprise!) Isaac, who was revealed as the guest designer that would be tasking the designers with their main challenge: check out his mood board and design an outfit for his collection.


The mood board had a lot going on: metallics, tribal prints, bright colors, plaids, texture, and a variety of silhouettes. Johnny and Merlin took a risk with this felt jacket, but the audience liked its shape – as did I.


What they didn’t love was James-Paul and Lidia’s fabric disaster. The duo had a promising start with Lidia designing the dress inspired by a fish scale chain, and JP creating a (supposedly complementary) cape with a plaid lining. Together, it was fabric overload and unforgiveable enough to send Lidia home.


Audience faves Anna and Haven put together a colorful tribal-inspired shorts/tank ensemble. But the real winner for them was their wrap coat with the funnel collar. (Buy the Striped Sleeveless top, $95, Sexy Stand Out shorts, $95, and Glamour Wrap coat, $225, here.)


Funnel necks have always been a go-to silhouette for designers, but for a something that’ll work for summer into fall, I suggest this gray Zooey funnel neck jacket ($137). Gray is hot now (it looks great with metallics), and the three-quarter length sleeves  work for both day and night.
