  • Trivia

    • Winner

      Sue, Bradon and Miranda were in the top, but Miranda was degraded to the bottom, as she had not quiet followed the challenge rules.

      Bradon, who had used both the parachute material and the strings in a tight long dress was the first winner of season 12.

    • Elimination

      Angela, Sandro and Timothy were in the bottom three. Miranda joined them as she had used too little of the parachute material in her design.

      Angela's overcoat was too simple and she was the first designer to be eliminated.

    • The Challenge

      Fifteen designers are gathered with Heidi and Tim on a runway of an airfield. Another designer from previous seasons and chosen by public, Kate Pankoke, joins them, flying in on an small private aircraft.

      Sixteen skydivers jump out of an airplane and land near the runway. Their parachutes will be the garment for the designers for the unconventional material challenge.

    • This season is the first to feature a deaf contestant. While he does have a hearing implant, he still requires an interpreter, who is off camera.
