Tim leaves and they start sketching. Kate proposes that they spend whatever they want, and then find out who might need more money. Everyone agrees. She interviews that she just knew being on a team would feel like babysitting. I don't know how she feels like she's babysitting by proposing a fairly straightforward financial plan; I have a feeling that some parts of Kate are going to come out that we do not really enjoy. The Dream Team isn't quite as agreeable. They decide to sort of split the budget, though it sounds like it's coming from a bad place.
They have a few more moments of sketching and Richard says that he notices that most women in NYC have really nice dresses. There's something so endearing about the way he says that. It kind of breaks my heart a little. He wants to make something that a NYC gal could wear from day to night. Cindy says that she likes this challenge because she is inspired by architecture. She feels like the collection of buildings resembles a quilt.
When they get to Mood, everyone is super focused. Daniel says that he really likes his idea and he hopes the judges get it. Cindy gets a little panicky. It actually looks like everyone does, but they make it out alive.
At the workroom, Benjamin remarks that this is the point where you look at your purchase and think, "That's totally not what I meant to get!" Emily says that she doesn't know much about the other designers yet, but she is sure she is one of the best. She thinks she will at least be in the top 3 for the competition. Wow, them's some famous last words.
Patricia is making her own print to emulate the windows in NYC skyscrapers. She is doing this painting technique that is pretty striking. She says that she used to change to the color of the skin on her Barbies when she was a little girl, so she's comfortable adapting stuff to fit her needs. Layana thinks that what Patricia is doing looks too arts and crafts. Layana seems to have a lot of problems with Patricia. Emily thinks that Patricia should be using her time more wisely.
Amanda's worried about being on a team. Daniel is worried, too, because some designers are weak in construction skills. He remembers that they all have to work together to move forward. Michelle notices that there appear to be some senior designers helping the others on Team Keeping It Real. Her team members are keeping to themselves and she finds that to be the big difference between the teams. She thinks that could hurt them in the end.
