Fashion star FLOP or Success?
The demand for fashion designers will remain at a high because consumers seek the latest forecasted trends. We want to look, breathe and feel like we are a part of elite fashion. Consumers want what’s “HOT”, fresh, innovative and to be quite frank we want what the celebrities are wearing. How would you like to have your dream as a designer turned into a reality? To have your designs featured in the world’s top retailers for America to buy?
NBC kicked off the spring season with a Fashion MUST WATCH tonight! Featuring host and designer Elle Macpherson with the aid of celeb mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos, the series awards the unknown fourteen contestants a multi-million dollar prize to launch their collection weekly. As the weeks pass by, the contestants will lessen until one designer remains where they will successfully combine their fashion inspiration with the business connoisseurs of Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Now my favorite designers that sold to the buyers this evening were newcomers Sarah Parrott and Nzimiro Oputa. Sarah created a cobalt blue woven dress; a spin on the classic “Little Black Dress” whereby Nzimiro constructed a linen blend normal fit blazer with suede elbow patches. As this is staple for women’s and men’s fashion these pieces have been seen before throughout the fashion industry. The two were sold to H&M and definitely fit the All American, Glam, and Classy look H&M exudes. When it comes to fashion we must be innovative and this series as well as the designs are an #EpicFail. The designs should not be ordinary or mediocre. The newcomers have to consider the business approach of the industry. Why should I purchase your design over the next? What sets you apart from the rest?
Positive that our penchant shoppers with a natural flair for current trends, couture and unique fashion tuned in to the NBC series I pose the question should the Emmy award nominated series, “Project Runway” feel compelled to the pressure? Is the new Fashion Star series a rival?
