In the workroom, Jerell remarks that, with the departure of another two designers, they have extra large workspaces. Aw. Tim enters and talks more about the Tresemme challenge. He mentions that the mothers will be opinionated and are essentially their clients too. So, I guess we can count on the moms being all up in the business. The designers will have 30 minutes to meet with the girls and moms. Then, they'll go to Mood with 100 bucks. Tim wishes them good luck then sends in the girls.
Joe says that the dynamic between mothers and daughters is the 8th wonder of the world. Because it's man-made? In a way, I guess that's accurate. He says that if the mother likes it, the daughter won't. He doesn't know how he's going to make both of his clients happy. At Kenley's worktable, Anna seems really excited. She says, "I got the cute girl." Um, college is over, Anna. You should have already gotten that out of your system. Kenley interviews that she really likes Anna and that she reminds her of herself. That's terrifying. She tells Kenley that she has already gotten a job as an assistant buyer for women's accessories. Kenley says that's perfect. She says she got the best girl. That is a perfect job for one of these designers to create a makeover around. She interviews that she and Anna have the same style (how convenient) so she's going to do what she does best and create some '40s- or '50s-inspired look. Kenley's working the mom angle and we see her tell Nancy that she's right about something.
Korto asks Megan if she has already found a job. She's actually trying to decide between med school and grad school. She says she likes dresses. Korto feels that she has an advantage because she's a "hip mom." Amy, Megan's mother, says that she thinks Megan looks best in classic clothes. Of course you do, Mom. She says that she also looks good in "funky" clothes. Now, something about Amy's enunciation of "funky" makes me think she hasn't been spending that much time around anything that terribly funky. For instance, if funky were to smack her in the head? Not so sure she'd know what hit her. Megan is working in the lab at school, so Korto thinks a wrap dress might be nice -- something that moves while it has a lab coat over it.
