Models come in all shapes and sizes. Including builders.

Fashion expert Dylan Garner judges his models both on their ability to look good on the catwalk, and their ability to put the catwalk together in the first place.

After seeing everyone's performances, Dylan, along with regular judge Adam Jones and a guest judge, pick some people for elimination. Everyone is called up in turn, and one of the set's neon lights is turned on - "Ffasiwn" or "Bwldar".

A bizarre combination, and one that felt like an extended practical joke for most of the series. It was successful enough to come back the following year, seeking a model who's also a motor mechanic.


2016 Gavin Orson

The titles translate as "Fashion Builder", then "Fashion Mechanic".
