04/17/2012 (10:00PM - 11:00PM) (Tuesday) : DESIGNERS PUSHED OUTSIDE OF THEIR COMFORT ZONES -- The remaining designers are challenged to expand their brands by creating clothes outside of their comfort zones. A women's designer struggles with how to properly construct a men's garment. Meanwhile, one of the designers adds a sexy edge to his collection. In a twist, the mentors and buyers will not know whose designs they are watching as they bid on their favorite pieces. The contestants that do not get bids from the retailers and fail to impress the celebrity mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos will find themselves facing elimination. The winning designs will be available online immediately and in stores the following day. Elle Macpherson hosts and executive produces the series.
