"Iconic Statement" - Guest Judge: Designer/Icon Diane Von Furstenberg

Challenge: To recreate and modernise a look of a fashion Icon (not necessarily a super model).

In this challenge, designers who were previously unrecognised or unacknowledged finally get their chance to shine. Another surprise from Angela who is just turning and twisting and coming out with things that you don't expect to come out of a quirky farm girl.

Designers clash in the sewing room and tension is building. It's becoming clearer and clearer that this is a competition and people have to be in it for themselves. However, that doesn't mean you have to create enemies along the way to Fashion Week, guys. Play nice! It's the judges who reserve the right to be mean.

Heidi wears some messed up outfits on the runway as she briefs the designers. I think the next challenge should center around designing better clothes for Heidi.

I am so glad that particular designer won. He's been my favourite all along. Stay tuned for a full recap!
