Wall to Wall

Fifteen new designers arrive to kick off Season 3! *Bradley Baumkirchner, *Robert Best, *Laura Bennett, *Malan Breton, *Bonnie Dominguez, *Stacey Estrella, *Katherine Gerdes, *Kayne Gillaspie, *Uli Herzner, *Alison Kelly, *Angela Keslar, *Michael Knight, *Vincent Libretti, *Keith Michael, *Jeffrey Sebelia. After a champagne toast, the challenges begin. In the first challenge, the source for design is the contents of each designer's Atlas apartment. Designers are given 15 minutes to raid their apartments, and they really raid. They may only use the contents of their own apartment-but they may use any of it (and none of things they brought with them). This really comes back to bite them later - when they are tired and drained after their first real full day of grueling work on the first challenge - when they come back ready to crash and are reminded of what they did to their apartments earlier in the day.

The designers will also have to refit their outfits for their New York models. It will be up to the designers to overcome these hindrances and wow the judges.
