The teams have an hour to sketch. The budget for each team is a grand. Peach interviews that she's excited because she's never had the luxury of that much money for supplies. As they begin, Cute Michael says that he thinks it's important for them to all respect each other, be kind and listen. Hold on, I need to pick up my heart, which just BURST OUT OF MY CHEST. Everyone agrees with Cutie because they are not insane. Meanwhile, Ivy and someone else (?) -- who knows since she was so loud that I could only really hear her -- scream at Other Michael that they don't need the easel that he brought to their meeting. They will not be practicing the respecting, listening and kinding on this team. Gretchen informs everyone that the gods have convened in her brain and insisted that they go with the menswear trend and the leopard and animal prints. Peach tells her team that she doesn't want to do menswear, because she thinks it could fall flat. April ads that she likes military, but it's actually a trend right now, so they would need to put a spin on it.
Gretchen's team decides to go with menswear. Their color story will be camel, which Christopher seems a little unexcited about in his interview. April's team calmly votes and it looks like they are going with military. There are a few holdouts, like Valerie and Peach. To them, April says that they don't have to make the collection "straight-up military." Their central textile is lace. Casanova says that both of these things are favorites of his. They all begin to sketch on his team. Their strategy is to all create their own designs and make sure that they have details that make the collection cohesive. They are going to be using black lace.
