RECAP: This week the designer have to create two looks, one on the high end and one on the low end.  Some of the designers are struggling to keep it real between the two designs. Behind the scenes Luciana is struggling with her pattern maker and worried that he’s making her look bad. Ronnie is going for a simple look using teal as his main color. This week nobody is more rattled than Nikki who has never done a high end design before. Edmond is having a hard time as well with differentiating between the high end and low end.
