“The pressure was on. She knew that she had to do something big because no one wants to go home. She didn’t want to go home. I didn’t want to call my mom and dad and say, ‘This is it for me,'” recalls the designer. jeanette limes about the “Winter Clothes” task in “Making the Cut”. She won the assignment, meaning her design was made available on Amazon’s “Making the Cut” online store, but just one episode before she was nearly eliminated. See our exclusive video interview with Limas above.
In episode two, “Activewear Champions,” the judges took issue with the flower-inspired fabric bulbs in Limas’s couture runway look, and thought her approachable look was underwhelming. It looked like they were ready to send her home, but judge Jeremy Scott he changed his mind and, by majority vote, was saved from elimination. So she had a lot to prove with her “Winter Wear” design. And it wasn’t easy for her during the assignment. After listening to the mentor Tim Gunnshe completely replaced her fabric.
“I changed my mind at 5:00 pm I didn’t have more time,” explains Limas. “That put even more pressure. But I am so happy. That’s why I love Tim. And that’s why Tim is so important to the show. Because before you talk to him, you are very sure of what you want. You talk to Tim and then he digs into your brain,” and you suddenly realize what you should have been doing all along. It worked for her, and the irony that a woman from the tropical Dominican Republic was able to win for cool couture isn’t lost on her. “It’s funny that a Caribbean woman is winning the winter. It’s really fun.”
