Nora continues, saying that Melissa was very detailed in expressing what she wants. She reasons that the models are so often told what to wear and not given any choice -- so when they have a little power, it can become contentious.
Austin shows Julia the crazy print he bought. She loves it. Wendy interviews that Austin seems "off his game." She believes that, when working with a client, you have to try to think like her. Austin "operates on one frequency." She believes that the collaboration will suffer. Well, first of all, she has a point that Austin's ideas usually flow from the same general style. However, wedding gowns would seem to be a perfect marriage (pun intended) with that style. Romantic, feminine=wedding gown. What's the problem? Second, fuck you, Wendy Pepper. Austin interviews that Julia's style is different from his, and that he is going to give her what she wants.
Nora explains to Melissa that she has hundreds of flowers that she will dye for Melissa's dress.
Kara Saun tells Jenny that the dress will be simple -- low-cut in front and back. She interviews that she wants to show the judges she is versatile. I love Kara Saun's work, but aren't most of her designs low-cut in front and back? Just saying.
We see Austin fashion for himself a lovely garbage-bag frock, for which to protect himself from the dye he is using. He cuts a very New Look silhouette.
Wendy says thatshe is happy with this challenge because she has made so many previous boring wedding dresses and formal gowns. Well, I'm paraphrasing. She's happy with the challenge.
The dye Nora has purchased for the flowers is the wrong shade of red. She says she is not going to freak out.
