Madrid, March 8 (EFE) .- The visit of six of the apprentices of the previous edition of Maestros de la Costura and the visit to the village of Rocío have filled the workshop with joy and good humor that, for the first time, has not eliminated any contestant and that has been a party.
The swords are up and the strategies are as well and from the beginning Lluís was in the focus of all his teammates’ attention. His gesture, his self-sufficiency and coexistence have not favored him.
But if something has attracted attention during the last test of the program, it has been the costumes of the judges, who have dressed in clothes made between them.
Caprile designed a suit, between a corsair and a knight, for Palomo curdled with frills; María Escoté wore a jumpsuit created by Alejandro Palomo and Caprile wore a flowery pink suit, very far from her usual style, by María Escoté.
With the intention of highlighting the rise of men’s fashion, during the first test, Jaime Álvarez, Mans creative director and winner of the prestigious Who’s on Next 2020 award, attended the program.
It carried out an exercise in decontextualizing the classic blazer, since the challenge was to make a custom luxury men’s garment, with impeccable fabrics and sewing, which the current apprentices sewed together with one of the visiting former contestants: La Brava, Begoña, Margarita , Borja, Fran and David.
The test once again revealed, although this time with laughter, the disparity of criteria between Lorenzo Caprile and Lluís, who was convinced that his jacket was going to be crowned the best.
Caprile, however, praised Ancor’s taste for choosing a maroon velvet for the test, “a fabric that is a poisoned candy,” warned the dressmaker, who, however, led him to win the test.
For the second test, the objective was to design flamenco fashion, one of the sectors within fashion design that is most noticing the crisis caused by the pandemic.
The model Laura Sánchez, director of one of the most recognized fashion catwalks “We love flamenco”, attended the group test to encourage the apprentices to make a rociera suit.
María Escoté highlighted the femininity of flamenco dresses, which “conform to the female silhouette”, and recalled that women like Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly wore them during their visit to Spain.
Polka dots, ruffles and a lot of color have given rhythm to the test in which the apprentices have entrusted themselves to the virgin of Rocío and have even started to sing the salve rociera, in order to overcome it and thus not pass the elimination test.
A test in which the tension increased due to the dizziness that Ancor suffered, caused by the pressure, which prevented him from hearing the verdict.
Neither group knew how to place the ruffles on the skirt so that it would result with the grace and movement that characterizes these suits but, despite the failures, Ancor, Mily and Laura managed to move on to the next program.
However, Yelimar, Lluís and Gabriel had to fight in the expulsion test, which consisted of making a bag supervised by Marcela Vélez-Osorno, designer of M2Malletier, a benchmark in this accessory.
To the delight of the apprentices, Boris Izaguirre visited the workshop with a collection of handbags “the perfect accessory even if you don’t have anything to wear,” said the writer.
Mily was in charge of choosing the materials for her teammates and, clearly, she hurt Lluís by assigning him the fabric, a decision that hurt the contestant, who saw in it an interested sample that would lead to expulsion, although thanks to his good work it did not get its end.
To everyone’s surprise, no contestant was eliminated, the first time the judges reached that decision at the “talent.
