THE THIRTEEN REMAINING DESIGNERS MUST CREATE THEIR OWN ORIGINAL DRESSES TO BE SHOWCASED ON THE STYLE FORUM RUNWAY,
ON "THE CUT," THURSDAY, JUNE 30
"It's Like A Flamenco Dancer Gone Wrong" -- The 13 remaining designers are split into two teams and told to design original dresses to be modeled at the Style Forum, on THE CUT, Thursday, June 30 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Tommy Hilfiger tells the two teams that they have just 30 hours to design three dresses which they must showcase at the Style Forum. To add to the pressure, the assignment includes finding a "runway model" on the streets of New York to model their designs -- a challenge made more difficult when one designer turns it into an opportunity to ogle women on the street. Meanwhile, when one overly confident designer decides to change a fellow teammate's patterns behind her back, the designer is shocked with the outcome.
On the social challenge, four of the designers are invited to a private party at Tommy's store in New York and are each given $500 to purchase an outfit to impress. However, one designer feels guilty and conflicted with the opportunity of buying himself new clothes knowing that his family could use the money.
