Each young designer has to pick a statement piece and base a look on it.   Zachary, the winner of the show your style challenge, chooses a horned headpiece, Colette chooses a vintage blue Chanel handbag, and Emily chooses a brightly colored clutch.

The contestants find out they need to make a second look using fabric paint, which doesn’t need to be cohesive with their first look but will be shown and judged. Emily and Zachary wait before starting their second dress, while Colette has her mother work on her painted dress while she works on her main look.

The contestants are now told they will be taking their hands off their designs and instructing their parents for the next 30 minutes. Emily is surprised her father is able to add the enclosure for her dress with only her instruction.

Zachary and his mother start to panic as they realize they’re running out of time. With hours before the runway competition, his second look isn’t done. Emily contemplates a last minute addition to her look. Colette and her mother are working on her second look.

The models arrive for the fitting with 30 minutes left until the runway competition.
Zachary’s looks turned out well in the last minute despite his time issues. Colette is also pleasantly surprised by how well her looks turned out.

Emily’s first look is a black dress with a plunging neckline.  Emily’s painted dress features negative painted words around the word “hope,” which represents turning the negative into a positive. Emily has had self esteem problems in the past which inspired the concept.

Colette’s first look is a white dress with black lines. is second is painted red and orange. Zachary’s first look is a dress with a black corset and a green asymmetrical skirt. His second look is a glittery grey dress with black accents painted on it.

The judges are impressed by Emily’s first look, which is more daring and has more of a wow factor than her show your style challenge look.

Colette’s looks also impress the judges, but she is criticized for focusing too much on a vintage, mod look at 15. The dress she made to accompany the vintage Chanel bag impresses Christian Siriano in particular, who calls the dress a perfect backdrop and says he is ready to hire Colette right away.

Zachary’s complicated corset on his first look blows the judges away. However, his second look isn’t as impressive.

Zachary is declared the winner of the competition. As one of the prizes, one of his looks will be featured in Seventeen magazine.
