Each were asked to pick designers for teams -- and sew five distinct looks, each incorporating the same "must have" item. Team Johnny designed a collection around harem pants; Team Merlin was fraught with drama and created their collection around bolero jackets; and Team Keith crafted a spandex tube dress/skirt.
In the end, while only one contestant -- Jonny -- was sent packing for his too-tight and ill-fitting design, judges Isaac Mizrahi, Fern Mallis and Kelly Rowland weren't impressed with any of the must-have looks. In fact, Mizrahi called the whole debut runway show "embarrassing."
