Tim comes in and asks how things are going. Ah, it's time for the check-in! Justin's taken his client's autograph and put it in white on the front of a black dress. And he's making sure the dress goes to the kneecap, because she's a Mormon. Tim says a skirt should never be longer than the lowest part of the knee. Alexander is still doing a suit. Tim is very concerned about the bust area, and recommends that it be "superbly presented." Alexandria is going for a job interview outfit, and Tim says to keep her young. Kate is making her client a "hot mom." Bradon is worried that his client won't look like she got enough of a makeover because she started out great. Ken and Tim have a euphemistic talk about the best way to hide a woman's midsection. Again, Ken does not complain about having probably the largest "real woman" client. Which is good! Dom is doing a large-scale print, which Tim thinks is "problematic." Helen thinks her client acts like a wallflower but is really a bombshell.
The superfans come in for the fitting, and everyone gets hugs. The designers enthuse about how well the new hairstyles came out. Dom reminds us that the fitting is very important, because they don't know their clients' bodies the way they know the regular models. The white signature Justin has is made out of fabric, and he waves it in the air to his client's delight. Ken's client loves her dress, and Ken tries to keep her mind on the fitting by asking if it's okay to put the hemline above the knee. And she's a superfan, so she says, "The hemline is always the issue for the judges. So you put it where you have heard comments before." He likes that she knows what the score is. She predicts that Nina will say something is "editorial" and that Heidi will want the hemline shorter. Bradon likes his dress. Helen likes the fit on her client. Alexander does not like how much work he has left to do. It doesn't look like a suit yet.
And there's only an hour to go! Panic! Alexander says he isn't even halfway finished, which sounds even worse when Helen and Dom are talking about how well the day went. Helen's looking forward to a relaxed runway day where she can just chill.
The next morning begins apparently without drama. Tim gives the usual instructions. The models get two hours for hair and makeup. Alexander's suit isn't assembled yet. There's some talk about how they all hope the judges aren't jerks to the fans. I'm sure Heidi has enough sense not to let her cronies be mean to fans on camera. The fans come in and get their clothes. Helen describes Justin's dress as "so vogue" and "triumphant." Ken's client loves the dress, but he thinks he's doomed, because the dress is very simple and the color is hideous. Kate says that making her client feel good about herself is why she became a designer. Alexander's vest might be too small, so now he has to work on something that was already done.
