Emilio says that the real work of creating a dress happens in the fitting, because nothing really matters until you see the garment on an actual body. Then, we see Joshua trying to work in this brooch somewhere on the waist of his garment. Anthony Ryan tells him that he feels that the brooch makes his look Scottish. Looking at the dress, I can't say that Anthony Ryan is incorrect. Also, I'm not entirely sure why that would be a bad thing. Maybe he's saying that it makes it look like a kilt. Josh really wants to fit the brooch in somewhere because he thinks it speaks to the decadence of the era. That makes sense too. Anthony Ryan tells him that he can use the Nine West wall to "add some bling" if needed.
Ivy hasn't finished sewing and really does not have that much to put on her model by the end of the fitting. In fact, she's sitting at a sewing machine with her model just sort of staring at her. That's not promising. After the girls are gone, Emilio tells us that he has to take apart the entire bodice, insert lace and finish the hem. That's a lot of work to get done. Uli is also cramming and doesn't have enough time to finish. They all reluctantly leave for their hotel when time is called.
The next morning, they go back to the workroom and start rocking and rolling. Ivy is sensitive about her construction and wants to make sure that everything is made well. Josh says that her fabric is beautiful but he feels like she is relying on the fabric instead of on her design. The models return for fittings for the show. Uli puts her dress on her girl and loves it. Laura Kathleen still thinks that Uli designs like a stylist, which I think is pretty dumb.
Scott Patric, make-up daddy, is in full effect this holiday season and serving macho painting realness. I've noticed that everyone is brandishing like the one 1920s reference they have at every turn. Charleston, flapper, jazz, etc. They never really add anything to the conversation.
Wow, Anthony Ryan and Ivy are talking such shit about each other. Ivy is happy with her look and thinks that it looks feminine and modern. Anthony Ryan thinks it looks like "Maw maw Georgina" going to bingo night. Now, does he mean our Georgina? Georgina Chapman? Did he just call her maw maw? I know he didn't really mean to, because that would be suicide. But, I think that's exactly what just happened. Does he know who she's married to? I wonder who is going to get to design Anthony Ryan's cement shoes? Ivy thinks that Anthony Ryan's dress looks like curtains.
