Sara Pascoe presents the semi-final, which celebrates Japanese design and sewing. For the pattern challenge, Esme Young has collaborated with a Japanese designer to come up with a kimono-inspired dress, while the transformation task sees the sewers mending worn-out denim using Eastern techniques of embroidery and applique. The made-to-measure sees them fitting an outfit to their models which has elements of origami folds and pleats - and with the final just a week away, the stakes are higher than ever.
