Macy’s Fashion Star
March 15, 2012 by staff
Macy’s Fashion Star, In the ever-changing world of network primetime television, the only constant one can rely on is change. I do love a good cliché. So now I present to you, Fashion Star, NBC’s most recent show about the business-end of the fashion industry.
Now when I first caught wind of this new show and heard the premise, I was immediately inclined to think this was a Project Runway knock off and had all but written it off. But as your faithful NBC primetime blogger, I couldn’t just let it go without checking it out for myself.
And I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I appreciate how much emphasis is placed on the business side of this industry, when so often it just looks like a bunch of fabric and thread being thrown around by overly dramatic individuals wearing absurd outfits and too much makeup.
So the premise of Fashion Star is that every week, 14 designers will present a showcase (which is incredibly vague and I don’t really know if that means one design three different ways or three different designs but, oh well ) to the buyers from Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and H&M who decide on the spot if they want to buy the clothes or not. If more than one buyer wants the design, the clothes go to the highest bidder. The designs bought during the show will be available in the winning store the very next day!
