    • Wendy created fifteen looks for Fashion Week instead of twelve in order to have some last minute flexibility for her Runway show.

    • Austin Scarlett also showed at Fashion Week, since the TV audience hadn't yet seen the episode with his elimination, and the producers wanted the identity of the final three to remain a surprise until the actual screening of the semi-finals was aired.

    • Jay turned down the $100,000 prize and the mentorship with Banana Republic. He signed a confidentiality agreement not to reveal his reasons, but he says in general that he would have had to sell out to keep it.
