Client Control

On this episode, our Real Designing Women experience the grief, and the glory, of the all-important client.

In this episode, Dee Dee is shocked to be given only a promotional beer bucket to inspire her pitch to land a major restaurant chain as her newest client. It means she has to make her first trip to a strip mall in years, only adding to her woes. Also adding to her woes? The clients take on what she comes up with.

Lori, meanwhile, has to do a pretty big tap dance to convince a suddenly concerned couple that the colour they signed off on will work, and she’s eventually proven right.

For Jennifer, it’s a classic designer ploy. Sensing the client might reject her idea for a new dining room table, she bargains with a Park Ave. retailer to “borrow”, and deliver, an expensive floor model for a personal pitch.
