In the season finale of the TLC show, Catherine and Gabriella Vigorito work to bring their pageant posing skills to the Big Apple catwalk
Get ready for a heartwarming twist in the world of fashion as Gabriella Vigorito and her mom, Catherine Vigorito, take center stage in the season finale of TLC's sMothered.
What started as Gabriella's journey to the Miss Connecticut USA title has now evolved into an unexpected adventure as she pursues her dream of modeling in New York Fashion Week. But the surprise doesn't end there — Catherine, inspired by her daughter's ambition, decides to join her, making them the first-ever mother-daughter duo to grace the prestigious event.
An exclusive clip of the episode obtained by PEOPLE gives viewers a sneak peek into the two's heartwarming and eye-opening journey taking the stage at Fashion Week.
"Today we are both walking for a loft-style runway show, which is much smaller scale compared to the large stage show that I did yesterday," Gabriella says in the clip while carrying a suitcase upstairs.
In the clip, viewers get an inside scoop into what goes on when Gabriella and Catherine embark on getting their glam done for the runway (which they're told will be slicked-back looks.)

While Gabriella is getting her hair done and chatting with the stylist about wanting to move to New York, her mom comes over to offer some feedback on the look. Instantly, she comments on how flat her daughter's normally curly and voluminous hair looks.
"She's not loving being here at all, I can tell," Gabriella says as the camera pans the dressing room backstage.
"Everyone's basically naked in the back. Guys too," Catherine adds. "And we're like sardines back there. What about cleanliness? I didn't even have my hand sanitizer. And then putting a whole can of hairspray on my head, I was not happy, at all. If you wanna slick my hair back, put me in the shower and have my hair totally wet and I'll walk the runway."
To see what happens next in the mother-daughter New York Fashion Week adventure, tune into the season finale, which airs Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
