Early this morning, the So You Wanna Be A Designer contestants got their challenge for this week. Right before Debbie Jagel and Isaac King opened the gold envelope that contained Thakoon's challenge, they plugged this week's partner, Prismacolor, which each of the contestants received to draw their sketches with this week. So after watching a short video about the career of Thakoon, Debbie opens the envelope and reveals the challenge for the third episode: Timelessly Feminine In No Time. With their challenge, $150 dollar stipend, and boxes of Prismacolors, the contestants are off to create their garments for the week. [Kenmore]
