Individual effort counts for once. Each designer gets a photographer and a model to make an “iconic image” in New York City. Not too difficult, I’d say.
Some of the ideas sound laughable. A male model surrounded by baseballs and hot dogs getting squirted with mustard? Or, trying to get a skinny white model in a bikini to “act” like she’s out of place in Harlem in the winter.
On the other hand, some of the ideas that sound good don’t turn out as well. In the end they are all on the verge of tears when Karl Lagerfeld shows up to judge the pictures.
People who did well as a team don’t do as well individually, and some that never did so great as team get high praise.
Now this show starts to get interesting.
