I really enjoyed watching NBC’s “Fashion Star”. The concept was fabulous! It was really educational to hear the feedback from the mentors (Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, and John Varvatos) and the buyers for Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and H&M. Anyone who’s thinking of becoming a designer could certainly learn a lot from this show. And how fun is it to see the designs and be able to purchase them the next day? In the end, it was former 4th grade teacher, Kara Laricks, that took home the big prize. She got off to a rocky start, but overall was consistent yet constantly evolving. Her collection stays true to her passion for menswear, but will appeal to the masses. And now you can purchase her line at Macy’s.

It’s easy to see why Kara was crowned the new fashion star. I’m really excited to see where her career goes from here. I have a feeling we’ll be hearing and seeing a lot more of Kara!
