We open to Katy getting dressed and ready for her first day as an apprentice for Guy. She even gets a champagne send-off. Amanda is only too happy to see Katy go but Katy bursts her bubble.
When Katy gets to Guy’s floor she tries being friendly and no one is friendly back. Guy hates her clothes. He sends Katy home to change. Katy finds something she can wear to work with Guy. Pepper tells her to become indispensable to Guy so she doesn’t lose her apprenticeship. Pepper also is agitated by someone on social media. Katy tries to fix what Guy was complaining about the day before. She brings in flowers that Guy likes, fixes tea, changes the light bulbs, and sorts the colors of fabric. When Guy comes in he is pissed about what Katy does. Katy tries to make up for her screw-ups the next day. Guy allows her to stitch on la piece of lace to a garment. Katy tries and tries to get it right. Guy takes the garment back and does it himself. Katy ends up in Gloria’s office crying and Gloria actually shows sympathy and kindness. When Katy goes back upstairs she overhears that Guy needs the fifth look. Katy decides to sew one of his discarded designs.
Katy completes the dress and Guy is of course unhappy with her but shows the dress to Gloria with the others in his collection. Gloria didn’t care for the dress and Katy was embarrassed. Katy figured that Guy was going to fire her and packed her things. When Guy comes upstairs he needs to come up with a new design and Katy becomes the model. Guy tells her that the people who make it in the fashion industry are the people who keep going at it. He isn’t firing her.
