Upstairs, a bunch of what appears to be only women are sewing madly on beautiful dresses. They inspect all of the beautiful fabrics and handiwork. Peirpaolo says that they are in a magic world where dreams come true. Anthony Ryan says that the experience of watching them work and seeing how they choose fabrics is invaluable. Later, when they are all sitting down, Maria and Peirpaolo tell them that they would like for them to come to their couture fashion show the following day. They lose it, but especially Josh. He says that he is like a straight guy at a baseball game. Joanna thanks them very much for their hospitality and they depart.
Later, they have dinner on the deck of a boat on the Seine. There are red candlesticks on the white tablecloth, which I really like. These guys really deserve this. They have worked so hard. They all agree that, though the competition is not yet over, this is a nice time for them to just share as designers and enjoy. "Aren't we lucky?" asks Uli. I really love her. The all toast to Paris on the railing of the deck and, I'm not trying to break up any homes or anything, but Anthony Ryan's arm is around Joshua's waist and his hand drifts down ever so casually to his ass. I can't say that they make the most intuitive couple ever, but stranger things have happened. We see some truly beautiful shots of Paris. I think I might move there.
The next day, they go to the plaza near the Eiffel Tower and sketch on their HP tablets. They decide on things that are pretty typical for them. Emilio is going with color, Anthony Ryan is trying something completely different, etc. Next, they go to Janssens & Janssens. Wow, this shit is fancy. All of the fabrics are deep and beautiful and special. I wonder if Mood feels insulted that they traveled across the pond for their fabrics. Whatever, those guys are so rich from this show now. They can dry their tears with all of their dollars. They get 3000 Euros each for this challenge. That's like four thousand dollars! For one dress! This better look good. Seriously though. Anthony Ryan is going with black, which isn't something typical for him. I have to say, that's one of the things that I find really interesting about him. He mind is flexible enough and he has enough skill that he can try new and different things all of the time. I think it's what has made him so successful in this competition. That said, it may not be great for him in the marketplace. I'm not sure that I could really describe Anthony Ryan's aesthetic, except that it is modern and fairly young. Maybe that's enough. Emilio says that he didn't come to Paris to get black fabric (that's what Anthony Ryan is using, snap). He came here to find the most special fabric he has ever seen. He finds this really beautiful deep red fabric that appears to have some sort of brocade happening. It's very Emilio.
