Back at the workspace, Emerald gets to work. Cesar feels a lot of pressure to pull the group together. Cindy says that they are all going to try to work with volume. Nami is using metallic and silver as their cohesive thread. Here's Isaac! He asks for the House of Nami's mood boards. Then. THEN, he reminds us that they are supposed to be inspired by their time capseeyules. Has he been hanging out with Madonna? Seriously, FUCK THAT TALK, Isaac. He likes their palette. David's year is 1982 and he is using Michael Jackson as inspiration. Rolando is using big shoulders, which Isaac finds more '80s. Emerald comes in and Isaac tells them to eliminate one of the colors from their palette, because there are too many choices. Cesar's has a protective hood, which Isaac likes. He feels like their collection isn't cohesive right now, which worries Jeffrey.
At the fashion store, they're all looking for their plaids. Golnessa feels that the selection isn't great. Cesar would like to not have to babysit everyone. Dominique hates all of the plaids that she's seeing. Back at the workspace, Eduardo tells us that he's making a one-shouldered garment inspired by 1976. And, he reminds us that he has immunity. Dominique is trying to recreate the flannel. She's going to make her own plaid, which makes Calvin say "hallelujah." Golnessa is making a coat inspired by 1961, like Jackie O. Cesar teaches her how to bone her garment. Cindy is sad to watch her struggle. Cesar really wants their house to win. Calvin models his skirt in high heels. Eduardo is beginning to like him. Jeffrey wears a blonde wig and acts a fool.
The next day, they're back at it. David is as cute as ever. He's making a jumpsuit, like is grandma used to wear. Calvin tells us that he wore lots of plaid growing up. Rolando is having issues with his seams. Jeffrey can't decide to make his garment with or without the sleeves. Since he feels that Michelle Obama should wear it and it would be a sin to cover her arms, he's probably going without them. Dominique takes off her shorts to try on David's dress for him and he totally peeks at her nakedness. Rolando says that David flirts with him too, which you know, just isn't true. David says that he has stronger bonds with women than men. I love him. The House of Emerald looks like the Mandrell Sisters. Cesar thinks that he needs to create another look for their collection.
