Commercial Appeal (#1.3)
29 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This time the designers had to design a dress for Banana republic and the winning one would even be sold in stores across the country. They all did a lot and some even got to party. Robert had especially bad time, trouble choosing the dress and spilling over it. At the end it was Wendy whose dress won and Starr left the show for good.

At this episode I have no disagreements. I am very happy for Wendy. I both loved her dress and would absolutely buy it, it is great how she also implemented the capes into it fitting to what the store was doing. Actually most of the dresses were good. I loved the one of Jay McCarroll as well. He did well adjusting to Banana Republic from his usual style. I would totally wear Austin's, although it seemed more summer like to me! And I am sorry, but Starr's dress was indeed the one that I would call hideous out of them all. Well, at least she is a successful lawyer and looking her up now I see she does animal rescue, my respect for that. I was very happy that Robert didn't leave. He grew on me as one of the favorite contestants.
