The Fashion Show Episode Guides
The Must Have (Pilot)

The designers test their attention to detail, then work with shape-enhancing fabrics and padding for another challenge.
The Shoe must go on
The elimination challenge tackles a common problem women encounter - falling in love with a hot pair of shoes only to realize you have nothing to wear with them. The contestants are surprised with a trip to the international mecca of jaw-dropping shoes, the Bergdorf Goodman shoe salon. Each designer selects an avant-garde pair of high-end shoes, and must design the perfect complimentary outfit to be worn with their killer heels. George Malkemus, President of Manolo Blahnik USA joins Isaac Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland and Fern Mallis on the judges' panel.

All the Bang, Half the Bucks
Tinsley Mortimer joins Isaac Mizrahi, Kelly Rowland and Fern Mallis on the judges' panel. For the Harper's Bazaar mini-challenge, the age old adage "one doesn't have to spend a lot of money to look good" is put to the test, as the remaining designers are challenged to style two dress forms, one for a "budget" look, and the other for a "bank" look. For the elimination challenge, the designers work in teams to create a variety of garments for one of Mortimer's upcoming events. Operating under a strict budget, the teams are responsible for designing a cohesive look from head to toe that corresponds with Mortimer's high society fashion needs.
Ode to La Mode

Trick up your Sleeve

It's in the Cards
