There Is an "I" in Team
August 26

Designers were divided up into two teams of 6. Each team had a feature concept and a feature fabric. Team “Lux,” consisting of A.J., Andy, Christopher, Gretchen, Ivy, Michael Costello, chose to feature menswear as women’s wear and camel as their feature fabric. It is imperative that having won last week’s challenge, Michael Costello, has immunity. The second team, consisting of April, Casanova, Michael D., Mondo, Peach, and Valerie (who didn’t have a nickname), chose lace as their feature fabric and the military as their feature style. It is important to note that the teams were specifically told NOT to have a team leader and that each team member should have a say in the collection.

Budget: $1000
Guest Judge: Georgina Chapman, cofounder of Marchesa (she guest judged on season 7, episode 6-Eat Your Heart Out)

On the other side of the runway, Team Military and Lace was declared the winner, much to the team's joy and the losing team's dismay. The judges picked their favorite garments from the winning collection: the pieces made by Casanova and Peach. Heidi polled the six designers on that team, asking who should win; Casanova was named almost unanimously.

Team "Luxe” was declared the losing team. When asked who should be sent home, the designers refused to name someone—at first, but then they focused on Michael Costello. Ivy called him “lazy” and “ignorant.” When Heidi asked who from among the five non-immune designers should be sent home, A.J. was alone in not naming Michael C. He named himself, saying that he did not bring his "fun and unusual style" to the collection. The judges noted that Gretchen contradicted herself in front of them, first saying she and the rest of the team stood behind their collection, then changing to say it was "crappy" after the judges expressed dissatisfaction.

After A.J. was eliminated, Tim Gunn expressed his anger at Team Luxe's behavior on the runway. He criticized the team for "allowing Gretchen to manipulate and control and bully" them. Many designers expressed in their confessionals that they thought Gretchen should have been the one eliminated.

Note-you will never never win a challenge with something called a “granpa sweater.” Gretchen and Ivy, but especially Ivy (not having won a challenge yet), need to stop giving Michael Costello a hard time. You would think that public flogging by Tim and being in the bottom two for this challenge would humble Gretchen, but somehow, I think not.
