Come as You Are (#9.1)
13 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode also contained the last part of the audition. I didn't get enough time to memorize them all but some of them I was already rooting for and worried that they will leave. From the ones who left I only remembered the one who postponed her wedding and this was kind of sad, but at least she has something fun to come home to.

The first challenge was already pretty fun with using their sleeping outfits to create a fun outfit, and most did a great job about it. From the ones who didn't make it into top or bottom, I really liked Viktor's dress.

I was very happy to see that two that I was worried will leave during the audition ended up in the top 3 of the challenge! I was excited for Anya who made a very hot design and ended up sewing well even though she learned it just recently. And I was very happy for Bert. I would love to wear that dress. And I always like to see people who are older getting a great opportunity and show that they still have style and talent.

The bottom 3 were really not great. I agreed with Rafael Cox being out because never in my life would I agree to wear it, it was horrible. Although his jacket as Christina Ricci noticed definitely had great craftsmanship and idea. He sure did great collections since then and one can see that he has great talent.
