The women's clothes, on the other hand, were themed "hunted," and models Lacey Rogers and Mamé Adjei were wrapped in layers of silk chiffon.
“It’s about conceptualizing with really bright colors like red, yellow, cobalt blue, tone on tone, and creating beaded details that’s more creature-like. [For the girls,]hindi siya (it's not) elegant like floral prints; it’s more exaggerated, I want it to be flowy,” said Francis in a release about the collection.
The last time Francis was on ANTM cycle 18, where he showcased his Hello Kitty collection. Last time though, he wasn't on the show in person.
For the November 7 episode, Francis was at the shoot for his collection in California. “Our call time was at 7 pm and we ended at 4 am the next day. Ang lamig (It was so cold)! [During the shoot,] very limited yung (the) movement ng (of) models while we’re throwing the dress.
"It was so dark, there were no lights, and it’s just flash. Kaya (that's why) it’s very challenging for them because yung iba nahihilo, nahuhulog, and yung iba hindi maka-balance (the others got dizzy, fell, and the others couldn't balance),” he shared.
Devin Clark was eliminated in the episode.
On October 15, the show's host, supermodel Tyra Banks announced that Cycle 22 will be the last season of ANTM. The series finale will air on December 4. – Rappler.com
