Each year, L’Oreal Paris designs a new collection of makeup for spring. This season, they’ve drawn on the movie star glamour of Europe in the 1960s, for their collection entitled Angelic. This week our designers challenge is to create an individual piece that won’t only work in and of itself, but will also work as part of this themed spring collection. Can these individual aesthetics pull together and work as a team?
With only one hour to discuss their ideas, the group came up with a Roman Holiday themed collection, with each piece part of a lux lady’s European vacation. The team had a collective budget of $1,000 to buy their material – but only three designers would be allowed to buy the materials!
Helen, Mark and Petrova went shopping, which proved disastrous for Juli. Unable to find the silk satin and silk chiffon she asked for, Mark decided on a pink polyester, which wasn’t what she was looking for at all! Meanwhile Lui wasn’t up to scratch on his knowledge of the 60s – would he be able to hit the brief?
Day two saw Leigh’s birthday and some surprise news – L’Oreal Paris were throwing the designers a party! Celebrity reporter Sophie Faulkner would be there and the designer she was most impressed with would receive valuable press coverage in Sydney’s Confidential, and immunity on the catwalk! Everyone had their schmoozing shoes on, but it was Brent who emerged as Sophie’s choice.
Then time to glow and go! With guest judge Karen Webster to help adjudicate, Lui walked away the winner, with his graceful interpretation of 60s romance and glamour. Leigh, Helen, Mark and Juli were declared safe, despite Juli’s model having some catwalk dramas involving ill-fitting shoes! That meant this week we farewell Petrova.
