    I would have sent Orly home. She so didn't follow the challenge.

    I usually go to each website(even Sacks..haha) after the Eastcoast show, just in case I like something...by the time it airs on the Westcoast, things are pretty much sold out.
    Hi again, on the website there are only two colours .On the show there are three.

    LOVED those jackets from Luciana... sold out online at Macy's (of course)... I'm hoping to find one at my local Macy's.
    Fingers crossed!
    I thought those one piece swimsuits were HOT... amazing for a one piece. (I won't be buying it though).

    I continue to love the concept of this show... great for the designers AND the retail stores.
    Honestly, how many other retail stores have clothing items that sell out in less than a day??

    I was disappointed they didn't have the print dress that Nzimiro had on the show on the H&M site, since I am definitely a print person...but, I definitely have enough accessories to give a solid color some pop...LOL!

    Since I have seen this happen with a few of the clothes, different choices than what is seen on show, I'm wondering if some of the fabric they use on the show, isn't available to make a bulk load of items for the website and stores.

    JMB,

    I also thought the one piece swimsuit was hot...I love the zipper detail.

    I wonder if the dress is in the store? I am going to check
    I liked the one piece in black, it did have a Borat feel about it. Jessica was right

    LOVED those jackets from Luciana
    Very nice and the attention to detail - great!

    That, or maybe the buyers think that certain colors/prints will appeal to more customers, so they drop others? I've been wondering that, too.

    Regarding Nzimiro's print dress... I'm very surprised too that they don't have it at H&M. It was my favorite of the 3.

    It would be nice if they would tell us why the actual item that is sold sometimes varies from the version shown on the show - is it a fabric supply issue? or a choice the buyer made?

    H&M has a ton of print, I think this would fit right in with the summer clothes they have in now.

    Fanny Mare,

    That is great to know, that the stores may differ from the website. H&M is a bit out of my way (Macy's is close), but at least I know if I really like something, I had better check the store.

    Was the print as nice in person?

    I find myself wishing that HM would buy all the designs I like.....b/c it will be significantly less than Macys or Saks.....I always get disappointed when Macy's or Saks buys the ones I really like!
