FBLA Exclusive: Top Design–India Hicks Guest Judge for Thrift Shop Challenge

Top Design’s second season should start with a bang–the first elimination challenge finds the design hopefuls working in teams of 4, armed with $2000 to be spent at a thrift store, a junkyard, a hardware store and the “Top Design Showroom”.

India Hicks is the first guest judge, and Jonathan Adler, Margaret Russell and Kelly Wearstler are back. Their criteria for this first challenge, at least, are “overall style, originality, taste, creativity, arrangement of merch”–and the judges are experts in these areas, allegedly.

Judging by the overflowing dumpster, the 80s never left. There’s wallpaper, flooring, fabric and junk food wrappers. We’re breathless with anticipation–could Cheetos be a real design trend?
