Back at Parsons, Jesse discovers the joys of working with kids. He says that draping is a lot easier when there's no shape to the dress form. Emilio mentions to himself that there appears to be a lot of black fabric in the room. Jay answers him in an interview. He says that children now are really fashion-forward, "especially" at the age of 8. Apparently, at 8 you start wanting sophisticated clothing. Perhaps Jay is aware of some sort of study that I know nothing about. He tells us that he's going for a plum look trimmed with navy blue.
In the sewing room, Jesse tells Jonathan that his life would be easier if he bought fabric instead of making it. We see him sewing yellow strips onto white fabric to create a print. Jonathan replies in a stern German accent that he will not be limited by what the fabric store sells. He interviews that he's going to make a dress with a short bolero. On the bolero will be strips of organdy. He says that he thinks Michael Kors will like it, then he does a few quick impressions of Kors. "She looks like a waitress at Benihana!" "It's like Memoirs of a Geisha met Barney!" The other designers seem to get a kick out of this. Jonathan says that his look will be fun and stylish.
With 5 hours remaining in the day, we hear from Mila. She says that, since she enjoys color blocking, she will make a '60s-ish a-line dress. Emilio cracks, "Color blocking, imagine that." Mila reminisces about when everyone hated her -- we see shots of her telling everybody to stay away from her sewing machine and that time when no one was happy that she was in the top 2. She says that now that she's centered, she's getting along much better with the other designers. We see her laugh with Anthony. That's nice! She jokes, "Add some color blocking to your life!" and Anthony says that could be a sermon.
