This week on Fashion Star the remaining 12 designers were asked to create a summer look, proving to the mentors and buyers that they were versatile in their designing.
Mercer Island designer Lisa Vian Hunter's shirt – what little the audience saw of it – featured sheer sleeves. Her design was not bought by the buyers this week, and the mentors said they worried it was too heavy of a material for summer during the consultation prior to the show.
Despite not selling her design to any of the three stores, Vian Hunter remained safe, advancing to the fourth week of the show.
Sammamish designer Lizzie Parker was not so lucky. Her dress, which she said she designed in order to step out of her comfort zone, did not impress on the runway. For the second straight week Parker was chosen as one of the bottom designers and was eliminated by the buyers.
NBC's Fashion Star airs on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m.
