The designers head back to Parsons and get to work. Maya says that the challenge is not working with burlap, because that's fairly easy. The difficulty lies in trying to make it look expensive, because no one wants to look like they are wearing burlap. That is true. Tim enters and reminds them that, though the models are the clients, they should stay true to themselves as designers. I'm tired of hearing that. Here's the only rule: Don't suck, ever. He insists that they make it work, then leaves.
Emilio interviews that he's glad that he has immunity for this challenge. Making a look that a girl is going to wear to an event where she needs to impress and using a fabric that is "as old as Moses" is not his idea of a breeze. Jesus tells us that his girl wants a "hoochie, sexy" dress. Apparently, Jesus will need to refine his taste for this challenge. He says that he's going to use lots of "detail" with ribbons and trim and stuff. Pamela is good at dyeing fabrics, so she thinks this challenge will be right up her alley. Ben tells us that he's going to create a skirt that will look like an upside-down tulip. That sounds cool.
Mila is still obsessing about the model thing. She says she feels that it's important to make her client happy, ESPECIALLY now that she thinks her former model hated her design from the last challenge. She decides that she needs to talk about it to Anthony, but instead of sounding like she was a little bothered that her model dumped her, she sounds like she's saying that it is just RIDICULOUS anyone would choose Anthony over her. And, that's not what she was saying. But, we confuse our meaning when we jabber on. Anthony hears it as criticism. He says that he "left his feelings in Atlanta, Georgia." You know, I actually think I misplaced mine in Atlanta a few months ago. I hope there's a lost and found. He interviews that he understands that some people cannot be courteous during a competition, but Mila can kiss the asses of him and his entire family. Seriously though, she wasn't trying to say that.
Later, Emilio interviews that he believes a lot of designers won't have time to execute their visions for this challenge. Ping, who is using herself as a dress form again, reminds us that she works differently from the other designers. But, she was in the top 3 last time, so she feels encouraged. Anna grabbed a few potatoes when she was at the farm and is using them to create a print on her fabric. That's cool.
