Korto asks Joe for his opinion about her garment and he says he likes it. Meanwhile, Kenley is telling Keith that his top looks "South Beach-y cheesy." She tells him that he needs to make a clean silhouette. She interviews that Keith needs someone opinionated like her. For his part, he looks like he's handling her input with a fair amount of grace, because she's not saying this stuff quietly. She tells him that she wants to win this, and he says that they are going to win.
Stella is hammering out the leathah belt for Jerell's look and it looks like the noise is starting to annoy the other designers. Jerell says to himself that he's not going anywhere, until he has to go to Bryant Park. Keith overhears this and says that they can ride together.
Tim enters with a surprise -- he's sending in their models for an early fitting. Kelli and Daniel are having problems. She doesn't like the way that Daniel made the skirt. Only half of it is ruched, the zipper is "all swably," and it's just crooked. She tells him that he has to remake the skirt.
More problems for Terri and Rayon. She doesn't like his sewing work. She says that the back of the top is "jacked up." A favorite phrase of mine. She wants him to fix it and it's tense, because Rayon feels like he warned her that this could happen. She interviews that if it's between her and Rayon going home, "Peace Out."
With 2 hours remaining, Tim arrives. Blayne explains his look and Tim feels like the Bermuda short isn't dressy enough for nighttime. He says "Holla Atcha Boy" to Tim again, which fills me with a rage best left stuffed way down deep. Tim compliments Jerell and Stella on the amount of work that they have gotten done. He loves the leather waistband, as well as the entire color palette. He says it looks like an example of true collaboration and it excites him. Kelli and Daniel try to explain their look to Tim. He doesn't like it, but I can't tell what's bothering him. Kelli asks if it's "too dominatrix" and Daniel (actually trying pretty hard to be helpful) says that there is an intimate apparel feel to the daytime-to-nighttime transition. Tim still says he's "dubious" and they need to "Pull. It. Off." I mean, it's not my favorite thing in the world, but I wish he'd have been just a little more specific about what he didn't like.
Tim approaches Terri and Rayon. He can sense that Terri is "concerned" and he wants to know what the problem is. Rayon says that he and Terri work very differently and Tim asks what that difference is. He drapes and she "cuts right into fabric" sayeth Rayon. Tim thinks it works. She confirms that he doesn't think it's tragic and he says that the neckline of the top is gorgeous. Terri is so relieved that she asks for a hug. Rayon joins in. Terri interviews that the shirt was horrible, but the two of them hustled and now it's beautiful.
