The event started with the apprentices facing the challenge of making a trendy black dress, with an impeccable design and perfect stitching, under the supervision of designer Roberto Diz. A challenge to which an unexpected change was added: the exchange of fabrics between the apprentices, once they had chosen them. After the 90 minutes of rigor, Lluís and Fermín occupied the first positions, while Gabriel and Laura were the worst rated, especially the second. « It is a worthy successor to ‘León eats gamba’, the worst we have had in this workshop », criticized María Escoté, after the apprentice presented a half-made garment.
For the team event, the apprentices went to the Teatro Real in Madrid, where they had as a guest Sandy Powell, one of the most important costume designers in the world. With Lluís and Fermín as captains of the two groups, their task was to reproduce two costumes from the theater’s tailoring shop, specifically, what women of the 19th century upper bourgeoisie would wear, a challenge that ended with the victory of the former’s team, who received praise from the judges for their « magnificent choice of fabrics » and the very good organization of the team. » . While, Elena, Álvaro, Ana, Nani and Ancor had the opportunity to fight for their return to the talent show, with the company of Mariana Barturen, one of the best millinery in Spain. All of them had to elaborate a design in which they had to include a flower chosen by the guest, inspired by an operatic work, whose final touch was the repechage of Ancor, of whom Palomo Spain praised that « you have only made a dress worthy of a equipment test « .
