The trim room is closed and the teams have 25 hours left. Even though Kathy got her zebra print from the trim room, expert Emil says "it's not a good zebra print." Nor does he like that awful African tribal fabric. So he suggests making the outfit black and putting a zebra print in the belt. Kathy thinks they're playing it safe and that's a good thing after they were "crucified" for their experimental jellyfish kimono. Meanwhile, Lady Jumpsuit is worried that her dark fur won't stand out enough but figures that when she's in the bottom three, they'll go in and get a closer look and know it's fur and that'll somehow make it all okay. Way to shoot for the stars, Lady Jumpsuit! Over at Team Dandy, Dandy is worried that Roberto is making his jumper look too much like a dress. Roberto doesn't see why that's a problem, so we have to flash back to 19 minutes ago when DSquared2 said they weren't allowed to make a dress. Dandy insists that his design is not a dress while Roberto says it totally is. Dandy interviews that he's too old to argue with Roberto, who is supposed to be here to work for Dandy.
Roberto gets the DVR-fooling interstitial segment again! He plays with the mice in the center of the studio for all to see. He's named them after himself and his teammate. The Patrick mouse makes an innocuous comment to the Roberto mouse, who becomes irate and storms off loudly and with huge gestures that the Merle mouse criticizes in an interview.
DSquared2 check up on the teams. Kevin says he's making a pleated jumpsuit and interviews something that makes no sense at all about why he likes the pleated jumpsuit look. Akiko clearly hates Kevin, and interviews that while Kevin is confident, he also "doesn't know anything." Team Dandy are next. Dandy shows DSquared2 his green jumper-sari (not dress!) which has a snake head design on it that DSquared2 clearly hate. One of them actually looks at the camera and smiles while trying to withhold laughter. Awesome. They hint that he's being way too literal. He appears not to understand what they're talking about. So they head for L. Marilyn. She says that she's taken inspiration from the tarantula's exoskeleton in her design by having an open seam in the sleeve and possibly a pant leg. DSquared2 don't like the pant leg plan. DJ Eric is next. He says the colorfulness of the toucan inspired him and then shows them an outfit that uses none of the toucan's colors and also peacock feathers. Peacock ≠ toucan, DSqaured2 point out. "It's a bird and we have those feathers," DJ Eric mumbles.
