For a city that never sleeps,

New York has a lot of dreamers.

-My mom was one of them.

A woman of secret ambition.

She wanted the clothes she made to be sold

in a fancy department store
on 5th Avenue.

She used the same sewing
machine her mother had.

Now, I use it.

And I'’ve got my own
dreams and ambitions.

My mom was Katherine Keene.

I was named after her.



Katy, did you seriously
stay up all night again?

I promised Ginger I would
have it ready for tonight.

And I still want to
drop the neckline

and add some more jewels, but

What do you think?

It'’s gorgeous. Like you.

Katy, you gotta start charging
for these.

I do this '’cause I love it, KO.

Hey, call in sick.

We'’ll take the F train
down to Coney Island,

ride the ferris wheel,
eat Nathan'’s hotdogs,

get sexy under the boardwalk...

Mmm...
that is tempting.

As anything that involves
getting sexy with you is,



but remember,
my new roommie gets here today

and I really want to
talk to Gloria about

Speak of the Gucci-wearing
devil...

Impossible, it is too early,
even for her.

Oh. Hello, Gloria?

Of course. I'’m on my way.

-Sorry, KO.
-Let me guess, it'’s a

-fashion emergency.
-Fashion emergency. I gotta go.

-Hey. I love you.
-I love you, too.

Good morning, Miss Katy.

Morning, Katy.

Welcoming, Katy.

Ah, thank you.

Good morning, Miss Keene.

Hi, good morning.

Has anyone seen Gloria?

A VIP client is coming in

and she'’s picking
her number two for the day.

Girls...

Oh! Thank, Dior.
Alexandra Cabot,

heiress to the Cabot
Entertainment empire

is moments from arriving and
I'’d like one of you to assist me

but, where do we start?

I'’ll get the Chanel flap bag,
new Zivon chigons,

Alia blouses, Celine sunglasses

and every Yves piece
in the store.

I'’ll also chill the Dom Perignon

and get three Earl Grey
macaron plated.

Oh! And shoes, lots of shoes.

Hurry, Katy.

Amanda? Where'’s my Amanda?

I'’m here, Gloria.

Can you and the other girls

stay out of my and Katy'’s way,
please?

I'’d so appreciate that.

Good morning, Miss Cabot.

Alexandra!

Your mother was just here,
last week.

-Mwah.

Everything'’s ready for you.

Thank you.

By the looks of it, Alexandra'’s
dropped a dress size.

No doubt she'’s
intermittent fasting again.

If she'’s feeling good, maybe I
should also pull bathing suits?

She does vacation twice a month.

Gloria, you don'’t have those
palazzo pumps

in my size, do you?

For you, Xandra, of course.

By the way, how'’s that
adorable, sweet cat

of yours doing these days?

Sebastian, isn'’t it?

Hey, Francois,
did you take those

size 7 palazzo pumps
for your window?

As a matter of fact, I

I'’m sorry, Francois,
I have to take these,

it'’s a fashion emergency!
I'’ll make it up to you.

Go. May they make their
new owner very, very happy.

This dress was made for you,

and I mean that quite literally.

I ran into Stella McCartney
at Milan Fashion Week,

and she told me,
she had your figure in mind

when she designed it.

Any luck with the Versace?

Perfect fit.

Ohh!

That wasn'’t so difficult.

Not at all.

Total breeze.

Gloria?

Yes?

I was wondering,
if I could...

talk to you about the new
personal shopper position?

Not today, Katy,
I'’m having lunch

With Joan Zidian
at Lacy'’s cafe at noon.

I know, I made the reservation.

Five minutes. I don'’t
want to keep Joan waiting.

Great!

Then I will dive right in.

So, I have been assisting you
for three years, now,

and I really feel like I'’m ready

to be Lacy'’s newest
personal shopper.

Oh? What makes you feelthat?

Well, I have
the highest sales record

of any of the other girls
on your team.

I know every single item of
clothing in this store

inside out, down to the stitch
and the lining

Some of the girls tell me
you want to be a designer.

That you actually makeclothes?

-No, I
-Being a personal
shopper at Lacy'’s

isn'’t some side hustle or
stepping stone, it'’s a career.

I'’m not interested in promoting
someone who'’s focus is split.

Back in the day, Lacy'’s
would only employ single girls.

Husbands and children
were seen as distractions.

Of course, we can'’t say that
nowadays,

but I do need people
like myself.

Committed.

-Right.
- 100%.

When I die, I want them

to scatter my ashes,
here, in Lacy'’s.

Yes, l make clothes,

but that is just for me.

You do have
the right disposition.

You know the clothes,
you understand

how they'’re made,
how they fit.

And you'’re not deathly allergic
to hard work.

Does that mean I have the job?

It means I'’m tasking you
with a special assignment.

Prince Errol Swoon is
coming to the store tomorrow

to shop for the Met Gala.

It'’s a crucial opportunity
for us

to make our numbers this year.

Prove that you'’re the creme
de la creme of my girls,

and the personal shopper
position is yours.

Oh, my God. Josie!

Josie?

Josie McCoy?!

Katy Keene!

-Oh!
-Oh! I have heard

so much about you, I feel
like I'’m meeting a celebrity.

Well, any friend
of Veronica Lodge'’s

is a friend of mine.
I'’m so sorry I was late!

Let me help you with your bags
up our four story walk-up.

This is it!

Home, sweet home.

Jorge! Hi. This is our new
roommate, Josie McCoy.

-Josie, this is Jorge Lopez.
-Hi.

Welcome to
the center of the universe.

I'’d give you the grand tour
but I'’m working

at the bar tonight
and I gotta get ready

-for an audition.
-Oh, for what?

You remember that movie,
Mannequin?

-Yeah.
-Well, they'’re turning it into

a big Broadway musical.

-Anyway, I'’ll see you tonight.
-Good luck!

Jorge is the best,
you'’re going to be obsessed.

OK, so I have
the bedroom to the right,

Jorge has the big bedroom
down the hallway

because his parents
own the building and the bodega.

And this room is...

Yours, yes.

I will move the sewing machine
to my room,

and the couch is a pull-out.

Oh, my God, you must be starved!

The bodega downstairs
has the best sandwiches,

and after that,
I'’m going to take you

to my most favorite place
in the world.

OK.

I want to know everything.

Veronica tells me
you'’re destined to be

the next Diana Ross.

Veronica
has always been very generous

even back in high school.

To be honest,

I'’ve been thinking about

moving to New York for awhile.

And I finally
got the nerve to pack up

and just take the risk.
And now I'’m here

to record an album,
get signed by a record label

and make all of my crazy
wish-upon-a-star,

kiss-my-Whitney-poster-goodnight
dreams come true.

Whatever it takes.

Anyway, how about you?

All those clothes
in the apartment, did you

I made them
on my mom'’s sewing machine.

So, you'’re like
a legit designer.

Ha, no. God, no.

That is the pipe dream.

Yeah, I chose a slightly
more sensible career path.

I assist Gloria Grandbilt

world class personal shopper to
the rich, fabulous and entitled.

Meanwhile,

I need to start
canvassing the town

with my resume
for any job, stat.

That is an excellent plan...
for tomorrow.

Tonight, I'’m taking you out
to meet the gang.

Oh, my God Hey!

-Look who it is!
-Hi!

Pepper, this is Josie. She just
moved here five minutes ago.

Can I just say,
I'’m obsessed with your bag.

Oh, my God, obvi
Katy made it.

Girl, where have you been?

Don'’t even get me started.

I just got back from Art Basel

with Childish Gambino,
lining up investors

for my top secret project.

And don'’t even ask me
what it is, Josie,

because can'’t
breathe a word of it

until my financing
is in place, so

Can I at least ask what you do?

Well, I just gave a TED talk on
the feminist power of Snap Chat.

I wrote this week'’s Modern Love
column in the Times.

Earlier this year
I shot an Indie

with Lupita Nyong'’o and
Kristen Stewart.

In other words, Pepper

is the most connected person
in New York

and she will introduce you to
everyone that'’s anyone.

Damn straight.
OK, you two look va-va-voom!

Twirl for me, will ya?

- Hi!
-Hey!

Josie, this is my boyfriend,
KO Kelly.

He is the bouncer here.

-Hey, it'’s nice to meet you!
-Hey, you, too!

Let me know
if anyone messes with you.

Hey, so, what happened?
Did she give you the job?

Not yet. Gloria is really
making me sweat for it

but, I'’ll tell you about it,
later.

Whoo!

And we are dancing now.

Yeah! Whoo!

- Whoo!

Time for Ginger!

I love you!

Yo! Katy made that dress!

Who is that?

That is our roommate, Jorge,

-also known as Ginger Lopez.

Damn! She'’s beautiful!

Is this what it'’s like
every night?

Oh, Josie, darling,
it'’s only Tuesday.

Welcome to New York!

Every year, KO and I

go to Coney Island
to commemorate our first date,

when he told me
that his life'’s ambition

was to be a boxer and fight
at Madison Square Garden.

That day, I fell in love with
KO on the Wonder Wheel.

And we'’ve been together
ever since.

Oh, crap! I cannot be late.

Jorge, have you seen
my diffuser?

I put it back in your room.
Have you seen my Aggie puffer?

-I can'’t find it anywhere!
-Yep, in the kitchen

-by the toaster oven.
- Found it!

Where the hell are
my green shorts?

-I need them for my audition.
- Oh! Josie!

Good luck
with the job search today!

-Don'’t lock the bathroom door,
I need to steam my dress.
- OK!

We know Prince Errol
loves Tom Ford, Ferragamo,
and Prada.

That'’s for the Met Gala.

Since we will have him
in the store,

and we know he'’s
often spotted riding,

let'’s show him our
Hèrmes equestrian gear.

Let'’s also have
Brunello Cucinelli'’s

fall collection
front and center.

I haven'’t seen the prince
wear Cucinelli yet,

but remember Gloria'’s
golden rule

Always introduce a customer
to something new.

Now, let'’s make all of

Prince Errol'’s fashion dreams
come true.

It should be me helping
the prince tonight, not you.

I mean,
have you even been to Europe?

Amanda, will you just find out

if the prince is coming alone,
please?

Oh, I already did. The hottie
prince will be flying solo.

Great. Then we can
focus all our energy on him.

-Thank you, Amanda.
-If you need anything else,

I'’ll be in the beauty department

applying diamond serum.

OK.

New to the city?

Is it that obvious?

Only because I was you,

once upon a time in New York.

Hey.

I know this is gonna
sound like a line,

but it'’s not.

I'’m in the music business.
I work for a label

and we'’re
looking for new talent.

I'’m Alexander Cabot.

Josie McCoy.

Josie McCoy.

Do you know where the Electric
Lady recording studio is?

You mean, where Prince,
Stevie Wonder

and David Bowie recorded?

-Yeah.
-Can you meet me there tomorrow?

And, be ready to sing.

My email address is on the card.

Five, six, seven, eight!

Sheila, Bobby, Paul,

red head-band, you can stay.

The rest of you can go, thanks.

Sorry, but
didn'’t I just nail that?

You did, but,

I need guys
who read a little more...

How do I put this...
tough.

For Mannequin, the musical.

Would someone
please get rid of him?

You heard him.

Group three?
We don'’t have all day.

Five, six, seven, eight!

Swipe, point, hip, hip,
ball-change.

Yes, great to be back

-Welcome.
-Hi, Claire.

How have you been?

Patricia, come on.

Who'’s she?

Yes, thank you.

I don'’t know.
I don'’t recognize her.

Well, she must
be someone, he'’s a prince.

Gloria, I found her Instagram.

Her name is Patricia Kline.

She'’s no one.

She has under
a thousand followers.

Ugh, for the love of Coco,
she'’s a commoner.

Do you want me to
run interference with her?

Katy, don'’t you think
this is precisely

the type of thing
you should have known about

so that we could have
adequately prepared?

Gloria, I am so sorry.

I'’ll fix this.
I won'’t let you down.

You already have.

In the world of fashion,

Gloria Grandbilt is legendary.

An icon and a gatekeeper.

In all her years at Lacy'’s,

no one has
ever seen Gloria sweat...

until right this very moment.

I'’m confident she's
going to adore this one.

That'’s what you said
about the last seven dresses.

Anything you'’d like to try on?

Let me show you
our Cartier tie clips.

Hi, it'’s Katy Keene,
one of the girls.

Can I come in?

Can you untie me
out of this dress?

Of course.

-There.
- Oh, my God,

$35,000?

This dress costs
more than I make in a year.

What am I doing here?
Dating a prince?

I'’m an imposter, I'm trapped in
some princess diaries nightmare.

No. Here.

Drink.

You are not in a nightmare,

you are at Lacy'’s
department store

with a nice, handsome chap,

who just happens to be royalty.

I don'’t belong here.

If a girl who grew up on the
lower east side

the way I did, belongs here,
So do you.

You grew up
on the lower east side?

Yes, on Delancey Street.

Shut up I grew up on Delancey!

What? No way!

Where do you shop?
Where can I get this dress,

I love it.

This one? Um...

I made it.

-Would you want to try it on?

I can also pull
some clothes you might like?

Stuff I would choose if,
you know,

a prince ever took me
on a shopping spree.

How'’d you two meet,
by the way?

There she is.

You look ravishing!

Thanks, Errol! I love
everything that I just tried on!

We'’ll take anything she wants.

And for yourself, Your Highness?

I'’ll take the Dior suits

and the Tom Ford,
the equestrian gear,

as well as a few Hèrmes baubles
for everyone back home.

We'’d also like to browse
your jewelry department

-before we go.
-I'’ll take you right away.

If you don'’t mind, we'd like
this young lady to help us.

She knows our taste.
What'’s your name?

Katy. Katy Keene.

Right this way.

Errol, can you believe that Katy

made that dress she'’s wearing?

She let me try it on!

So, apparently

I'’m too gay for Broadway,
who knew that was even possible.

So, tonight
we'’re only celebrating

Katy'’s big win at work.

Congratulations, Katy Girl!

-You deserve it.
- Yes!

Prince Errol Swoon, mmm,

I can'’t believe
you got to dress him.

I spent last Easter with
him on his yacht in Mykonos

Swoon, indeed.

There'’s no way you don't
get that promotion now.

I'’m praying to
the fashion goddesses,

Betsy, Vivienne, and Diane,

but I don'’t want to jinx it
so can we

talk about something else?

Josie, did you get a job today?

No. But, I did meet a guy

who works for a record label

-Oh...
-And he wants to meet tomorrow

after I send him
one of my songs.

His name is Alex Cabot.

-Shut up.
-Alexander Cabot the 3rd?

-Are you serious?
-Where did you meet him?

Washington Square Park

and he heard me
singing with a busker.

OK, hold on.
The Cabots are right up there

with the Astors
and the Rockefellers,

OK, they own everything.

-Fashion labels.
-Broadway theaters.

His sister, Alexandra,
is a client at Lacy'’s.

She spends $100,000 a month
on skincare products, alone.

And you just happened
to run into

Alexander Cabot in the park?

Justin Bieber
was discovered busking.

I know, because he would
not shut up about it

when we went
to see Britney in Vegas.

I don'’t want to be
a jaded cynic,

but this sounds like
the beginning of
a Lifetime thriller.

I don'’t want you going alone.

Oh, no, Katy,
I am from Riverdale.

It is the murder capital
of the world.

I'’ll be fine.

Well, tomorrow'’s my day off, so,

I'’ll just go with you
as your manager.

-That'’s good.
-Well...

what does one wear
to meet a billionaire?

Don'’t you worry about that.

I...

I will make you something
fantastic.

You say it like you'’ve
never heard her sing before.

Uh, yeah, well,
with a client like Josie,

every time feels like the first.

Whoo!

So...

what are your plans
for my client?

Well, first,

I'’d like to introduce Josie
to the Cabot board

and play them this song.

Then, once they approve,

I want to sign her
to record a full album

and launch her career
as an international pop star.

How'’s that sound?

Uh, um

Pretty good.

Now, is anyone hungry?

Um...

Josie, I should get back
to my other clients.

I have so many of them.

If you'’re OK, here

Totally, I am, I'’m good.

Riverdale. I'’m fine.

OK.

So, you were
in a band in high school,

-the kitty cats
-The PussyCats.

- Oh, OK.

And we split up.

I sang at my friend'’s speakeasy
for awhile.

I went on tour with my dad,
he'’s a jazz musician.

-Oh.
-Yeah.

Since then,
I'’ve just been working on

finding my sound
as a solo artist.

Well, you found it.

Oh, important question

The Shirelles or the Ronettes?

The Shirelles, all the way.

So how did it go
with the prince?

Did you charm him?

Even better.
I charmed his girlfriend.

Which led to Lacy'’s single
biggest sale of the year.

Katy Keene for the win!

Well, we'’ll see.
Gloria can be...

What'’s the word...
mercurial?

Katy

I got some news today.

You know how I'’ve always wanted

to train at Joe Frazier'’s gym,
right?

-In Philadelphia, yeah.
-They called today.

My name was on a wait list.
They'’re looking to take on

some new fighters
and they'’re interested.

KO, that'’s amazing!

I didn'’t even realize
you were on a wait list.

So, what if we move?

Get a nice big apartment
together,

king size bed,
you love cheesesteaks...

Yeah, but my job

This is only if you don'’t
get the promotion, but...

There are department stores
in Philly.

There'’s only one Lacy's.

I know. I know,
and the timing is terrible,

but we always talk about

how crazy and expensive
it is to live here.

Yeah, but it'’s New York.
We'’re New Yorkers.

I get the bends
when I go to Long Island.

Why don'’t we just see
what Gloria has to say first.

Then, we'’ll figure things out.

Cool?

Josie McCoy'’s dream

isn'’t what you might think.

Of course she
wants to be a star,

but what she really wants
is for New York City to say,

"Welcome, you belong here.

You can play your music here.
You can have a life here."

It'’s quite the view.

Agreed.

Thank you, Gloria,

for your and your team'’s
exemplary performance

hosting our royal guest.

I couldn'’t be more proud
of all of us.

-Thank you, Mrs. Lacy.

I couldn'’t have done it
without my team, my girls.

As you know,
mentoring these young women

means the world to me,
which is why

I'’d like to
make an announcement.

You so don'’t deserve this.

The new personal shopper
position

goes to an exceptional,
hard working young woman

with a keen fashion sense

who'’s been with me
for a few years, now.

Congratulations, Amanda!

- Oh, my!

I have to be honest,
I didn'’t love it.

Me neither.
Catchy, but a little dull.

- Are you kidding me?
-Excuse me

You don'’t know what
you'’re talking about

Alex, the Cabot board,
including myself,

have taken valuable time
out of our schedules

to listen to your song.

Now, it'’s your turn to listen.

I'’m sorry. I'm
gonna pass on this one.

-Pass.
-Hard pass.

I'’m Alexandra, Alex's sister

and the Senior VP
of Cabot Entertainment.

You have a nice voice
and you seem sweet.

But, if we'’re going to re-launch
the record division,

spending millions of dollars
by doing so,

it has to be on someone
who'’s just...

undeniable.

Look, I can tell you'’re upset,

but life isn'’t A Star is Born.

You don'’t just meet a guy and
win multiple Grammys overnight.

Xandra
Look, you'’re wrong.

Josie'’s a star.

And where'’d you find this one,
Alexander?

Central Park?

Bryant?

Oh, no, no...

Washington Square.

Oh, what, did you think
you were the first?

It was nice to meet you,
Josie.

Josie, wait!

No, no! What,
you just troll parks all day

looking for girls to humiliate?

No. Look, it'’s not like that.

My sister doesn'’t want me
re-launching the record label.

She thinks it'’s
a waste of money,

but I'’m going to
prove her wrong, with you.

You know what, no.
No way.

You can find someone else

to drag into
your sibling rivalry, Alex.

I'’m done.

Gloria?

I'’m genuinely confused.

I thought that job was mine.

I understand
Prince Errol'’s girlfriend

tried on a dress
we don'’t sell in our store.

One of your designs.

You were there

Errol was about to walk out
empty handed

I had to think outside the box.

You made a choice, Katy.

One that violates store policies

as well as one of my
golden rules.

You made it about yourself.

You mean,
as opposed to about you?

Excuse me?

I put Lacy'’s
ahead of everything.

And I expect
the same of my girls.

That is why,
effective immediately,

you no longer
report to this department.

My department.

Guys, I don'’t know what to do.

I mean, not only did I
not get the promotion,

Gloria exiled me
to the stockroom.

That skinny bitch.

I think you should quit.

I need a job, Jorge.

Besides, I'’ve wanted
to work at Lacy'’s

since I was a little girl.

My mom always dreamt of

having her dresses sold there.

Mm-mm. No, see,
there you go.

Your dream, your realdream,

is to have your clothes
sold at Lacy'’s.

At least, I hope
that'’s your dream,

because I look around at these
clothes that you make, girl,

and you are a heartbeat away.

When we first met,
that'’s what you said.

You said you wanted
to be a designer.

I hear you, I do,
but it'’s also about KO.

What do you mean?

He wants us
to move to Philadelphia.

So he can train
at this world famous gym.

You'’re not actually
considering it, are you?

You would move to Philadelphia

in pursuit of KO'’s dream
at the expense of your own?

What is that?
Post-post-feminism.

Damn, ladies,
we are a tragic mess, tonight.

And make room for one more
at this pity party

because...

I'’ve decided
to give up Broadway.

Wait, what about the second
open call for Mannequin?

I can'’t.
I can'’t do it.

I'’m so tired of being rejected
over and over and over again.

All because I don'’t fit into
their little box.

They made it abundantly clear,
the powers that be

don'’t want someone like me.

And I can'’t try and act masc,
right?

And I won'’t code-switch,
not just to get roles I won'’t.

I can'’t.

So, maybe...

Maybe you do the exact opposite,

and show them a side of you

that they have
never seen before.

Katy Keene, are you saying
what I think you'’re saying?

Yes.

But you'’re gonna need
a new outfit, first.

My roommate, Jorge,

came out to his folks
when he was fourteen.

They haven'’t met Ginger yet,

but they do support
his life'’s goal

To originate a role
in a Broadway musical.

Five, six, seven, eight...

Girl, you bedazzled the hell
out of that leotard.

This is
the kind of thing I'’d miss

by moving to Philly.

Number 39,
please step forward.

Did you think
I wouldn'’t recognize you?

Or that I was gonna
see something today

that I didn'’t before?

This is Broadway,

not some drag contest
in the Village.

Nice try, though.

Next group!

You know what?

I'’ve heard it all before.

You know, too soft,
too fem, too gay,

too skinny
Thank you, very much.

But I don'’t care, 'cause
I know I'’m good enough.

And, for the record,

those queens in the village

have more talent in their

acrylic pinky nail than most
of the people in this theater.

If you all can'’t see talent
when it'’s right in front of you,

then I'’m sorry,

but you don'’t deserve
to have me in your chorus.

And mark my words...

one day you willknow my name.

Ginger Lopez.

And you'’re
gonna see it in lights!

Carnegie Hall, bitches.

Whoo!

We love you, Ginger!

Yeah!

Katy, hi.

Gloria needs you
to steam and organize

these garments alphabetically
by designer ASAP.

Really, Amanda?

You'’re gloating?!

Isn'’t it enough
that you sabotaged me,

and by the way, you'’re not
gonna get away with that.

I deserve this promotion, Katy.

I'’m from the upper east side.

Oh, give me a break, Amanda!

You are from Westchester.

You are not fooling anyone.

Neither are you. I mean,
you might not look like it,

but you'’re a gutter girl
from the lower east side.

And that, Katy,
is never gonna change.

All right, it might just be
the vodka talking

but I had an epiphany today
in the stockroom.

You are right, Ginger,
screw Lacy'’s.

I gave that place
three years of my life!

Can you imagine all the clothes
I didn'’t design

while I was busy doing
Gloria'’s bidding?

So, tomorrow, I'’m quitting.

-Katy!

Girl, do what you gotta do,
but you cannot move to Philly.

Josie'’s right. Philadelphia
isn'’t exactly a fashion hub,
is it?

Plus, I just got here.

Yeah, well, I definitely
have to figure that out.

But guys, tonight,

we throw down at Molly'’s Crisis.

I'’ve got something else in mind.

-Who is in the mood

for a little after hours fun?

-Me, me, me, me!
-Yes!

Crap! Someone'’s here.

Guys, come on, go, go, go!

Katy, is that you?

Hi, Francois.

Yeah, I forgot my wallet.

Are you OK?

No. The client,
Comme des Filles,

threw out my concept
for the window.

Now I have until sunrise
to figure out a new way

to display three evening gowns,

or Mrs. Lacy will
put me out to pasture.

Maybe I can help?

OK, as Oprah likes to say

and Julie Andrews likes to sing,

these are a few of my
favorite things.

Hopefully, they'’ll
spark something.

Let'’s see Ooh!
Look at these bejeweled cuffs!

I have always
been obsessed with cuffs.

Especially the ones
that Lagerfeld

designed for Chanel in the 80s.

My mom had a pair
she wore everywhere.

Is she a fashion girl, like us?

She was a seamstress.

She always said,

"You don'’t have to be rich
to be stylish."

Every weekend,
we would go down to Lacy'’s

and we would stare at
your windows for hours.

We couldn'’t afford anything,
of course,

but, we would get inspired
by our favorite designers.

And then, we would
go home and make our own.

Wait

Francois, I have a crazy idea
for your window,

but you'’re gonna
have to trust me.

And we'’re gonna need
a sewing machine.

It'’s tradition, here at Lacy's,

that we gather for the unveiling
of our new store windows.

I know Francois has been
hard at work

to showcase the fabulous dresses

from our friends
at Comme des Filles.

So, without further ado...

I'’m speechless.

It was all Katy Keene'’s idea.

Oh.

Aren'’t you
one of Gloria'’s girls?

No, ma'’am,
I work in the stockroom.

But, I'’d like to offer her
a job in my department.

What? Francois?

It'’s low pay and long hours,

but you'’ll be
rewarded for your talent.

not punished by jealous hags.

I don'’t know what to say!

Say yes! On one condition.

I'’m not letting you stay here
forever.

Six months, tops.

OK, maybe nine.

But then you'’re out in the world

doing what you'’re
meant to be doing

designing.

These were just delivered.

Oh...

may I assume?

Thank you for your help.

Let me know
how I can return the favor...

Katy.

Signed, Errol Swoon.

New York City,

she said she came here to sing.

So, I want you to give a big
Molly'’s Crisis welcome

to Miss Josie McCoy.

Go, girl!

I have been torn down,

I have been lied to,

but I am exactly
where I want to be.

New York damn City!

This one'’s for all
of the dreamers out there.

Dancing with
my friends I was thinking,

"You know what would
make this night perfect?"

And then, there he was.

I'’m deciding between
the cheese and the pepperoni,

or whatever
your biggest slice is.

Oh, if you get
the fennel sausage,

can I have a bite, please?

It depends.

Are we moving to Philly?

Well...

I...

have been thinking about that,

and, I'’ve made some decisions.

Even though I didn'’t get
the promotion,

I really
I want to stay in New York.

Especially since
I'’m gonna pursue designing

as a career again
Still working at Lacy'’s

but that is just as a means
of opening my own shop, someday.

Is that OK?

Yeah, of course.

Why the change of heart?

Meeting Josie...

watching her pursue her dream

it reminded me, I should be
doing the same thing.

And, so should you, KO.

So, maybe you go to Philly,

and we could try
the whole long distance thing.

I'’m not going anywhere
without you, Katy.

You'’re everything to me.

In fact, I had a feeling

things were gonna
play out this way,

so, if we'’re gonna stay in NYC,

we should make it official.

KO, what the hell are you doing?

-Katy Keene,

will you marry me?
