The contestants head out to Venice Beach and draw inspiration from things like restaurant awnings and crippled pigeons. Lady Jumpsuit goes apeshit over some pillar with mosaic designs on it. Merle just wants to get back to the studio, so they do. Because this show can't go three seconds without something else happening, there's a surprise waiting for the contestants when they return -- their logos have been made and are posted atop their stations. Merle's is a ying-yang with an eyeball in it. Um, yuck. No eyeballs with big eyelashes on my clothes, please. I can't see David's logo because there's a giant ad for another Bravo show covering it. Soon they all get to work. Kathy explains that she was inspired by a woman from Ghana's hairbraiding stand on Venice Beach and thinks it still fits with her "Native Rose" label and theme because... uh... is she saying that African people are natives? I am not touching that one.
Amazingly, Patrick's sundress design is met with enthusiasm and encouragement from Roberto. Meanwhile, David wants to design a "formal bathing suit that you don't swim in." YES! Please bring back the formal Victorian-era bathing costume, David! I'm sure it didn't go out of style for a reason or anything. "It's something that I know my wife would look good in," he says. Apparently he's married to Clara Bow. Meanwhile, Merle is designing a dress that converts into a caftan by rolling your sleeves up or down. You mean like how my long-sleeve shirt converts into a T-shirt when I roll the sleeves up? Revolutionary! Over at Eric's station, his expert Galina seems to be taking over most of the designing. That's also the case at Kathy's station, as Emil changes her red fabric selection to blue and says something about giving the dress tentacles. Instead of focusing on her own piece, Merle keeps looking at Eric's station and disapproving of how much input Galina has in his design. To the point where it's basically Galina's design. You know who wants to win $50,000? Galina does!
