"The Auction (Indie Girls in Paris - Part 1)" is the third episode of the second season of PINY Institute of New York, and it is the first part of "The Paris Special".


The Indie Girls and the Beautiful People each have to design a dress which will be sold off in an auction.


The episode starts with the Beautiful People taking selfies around Paris until they are told to go to PINY: Pinypon Institute of Paris. On the way, the girls are stalked by a Mime until Rita finally scares him away. They are greeted by Rania Forbes, Mr. Grasso and Coach Spencer who tell them they need to make a dress for an auction that is taking place in the institute.

Simultaneously, the Indie Girls are on their way on goats. Close to PINY: Pinypon Institute of Paris they see Madame Forbes waiting outside PINY. Michelle then tells the goat to hurry up but she tells herself that it may only understand french. Similar to the Beautiful People they are told to make a dress.

The girls don't have any hope, until they meet the same Mime that was following the Beautiful People and was imitating them. They find that the Mime goes to PINY: Pinypon Institute of Paris who tell them to come with him to see his room-mates. Michelle, Lilith and Tasha are introduced to The Artists (a PINY: Pinypon Institute of Paris group).

Mari, the leader asks them if they come from PINY: Pinypon Institute of New York which they answer her with a yes. She later on tells them they can spend the nights here, after that they start to make a dress. Through the montage they are shown struggling to make a dress making various shoe, dress and accessory designs. Michelle, who worked through the night, didn't find any ideas. Neither her friends, but Michelle wants to encourage the girls by saying they have wit, and by Chanel's pearls they have ponchos. For that reason, they are inspired by their rain-coats.

At PINY: Pinypon Institute of Paris, the auction takes place and which the Indie Girls are confronted by the Beautiful People. The dresses are shown and the Beautiful People's dress has more of a bid than the Indie Girls. So the Beautiful People end up winning. For that, the Indie Girls are in a bad mood. The episode ends with Mari bursting through the door telling them that the Beautiful People cheated.
