They go to get supplies. Keith is glad to not have to worry about someone else's performance any longer. Reco explains that he's going to create a futuristic design. Angel is totally flummoxed. She doesn't usually work with light blue, so this is a struggle for her. Then, she says she had a vision of a white shirtdress, like would be worn on a yacht. I like Angel. I'm hoping she pulls this out. Back at the workroom, Daniella tells Anna that she thinks that some people are going to fail without guidance from their teams. The camera pans from her saying that to Andrew at his table. He must notice that, right? He says that he doesn't care what anyone else thinks about his stuff. He's making a short cocktail dress with petal sleeves to go with his feathery Manolo Blahnik shoes. Keith is working with wedge Valentinos. Seriously, this is like watching Fargo. That accent. He's very inspired by his shoe. His design is floral-inspired, like his shoe.
They finish for the night and come back the next morning. Anna and Daniella think that pleating on the bodice of Andrew's cocktail dress looks like the pleating on her skirt from a couple of weeks ago. She thinks that he can't come up with any ideas of his own. [Does she own pleating? - Zach] Angel explains that her dress is going to be like Siamese twins, but shirts. The skirt of her dress will be a mirror image of the shirt top. Haven doesn't know what the eff Merlin is doing.
Models come in for fittings. Lidia doesn't have anything for her model to try on. Reco's model says that it's time for them to win, and she thinks his shoes are the jam. After the fitting, with 6 hours remaining in the day, Isaac and Kelly return. They ask Daniella about her design. In her sketch, she has some sequin action on the shoulders, which Isaac "asks" about with a stinky look on his face. She says that she's just experimenting and was trying to bring the silver from her shoe into the design. She interviews that Isaac's questions really fuck with your head. Reco says that he cut a bunch of strips on the bias and has stitched them together. He doesn't have enough material for a jacket, but Isaac wonders if he would even have time. Oh, he could pull it off, he replies. Reco's a sewing fool. Andrew's color palette is really muted, and I think Isaac has a problem with it. Reco thinks his muslin draping looks like a substitute schoolteacher. Lidia explains her design, inspired by her Yves Saint Laurent shoes. She decided to add an accent late in the game, so Isaac asks if she's worried that she won't have enough time. She interviews that she doesn't want to play it safe. Isaac calls Merlin "Merly Sue." That's amazing. Merlin describes his dress, which is a pretty literal translation of his shoe. He says that he tried on his dress himself, and it didn't go well. He wants his dress to fly, and Isaac looks at him skeptically.
