Imperfect1, I believe that was because the buyers at this point will only be buying one item from the designers each week, not a collection. IMO it was a good thing because while they are only allowed to show the one design they were able to showcase it in a couple of variations to let the buyers see a whole vision of that one item.Quote:
why would the show have you show 3 variations of the SAME design.
If you go to the official Fashion Star website and look under the Look Book section, you can view the fashions and the ones that are available in stores have a link to the store where you can buy it. So if you click on View under Edmond's Sleeveless Halter Dress, it has a link to Macy's, which shows the other outfits available at Macy's and what they cost.
There seems to be something wrong with the Look Book right now because if I click directly on it or on more looks, I just get a page of code. However, if you click on one of the working links then you can use arrow keys at the upper right of the screen to scroll to the previous and next outfit.
I imagine they are saving their best designs for later. The further along they get, the tougher the competition, I would imagine.Quote:
If you're showcasing your work, why would you not show your most fabulous designs?????
JavaJo are they also in the stores? I thought I heard they will be.
They are supposed to be, but I haven't been shopping lately so I don't know first hand.
As others have said, I think the designs will improve as the season continues and the designers get more input from the mentors and the buyers. I think it makes perfect sense to have 3 versions of the same design. It shows the versatility of the design, which is often the name of the game with ready-to-wear.
I'm so glad that Aussie jackass got the boot. I guess that whole chauvinistic Australian man stereotype may have some merit. Even if he felt that women don't have any idea about men's fashion, he should have known enough to keep his mouth shut in that context. One of the things I dislike the most in contestants on these types of shows is arrogance and an unwillingness to take advice from people who have more experience and who are there to help.
I really liked the beachy long dress by Nikki Poulos at Macy's...I was able to find it easy online, by going to Macy's site, then clicked on the box for "get new looks here" on the Fashion Star add.
But I debated about buying it for too long and it sold out. It would have been perfect for my cruising addiction..LOL!
She does have a website, but her Maxi's are $175 there, so the Macy's dress was a pretty good deal at $89 in comparison.
In the future, if I see something I like, I won't hesitate to buy.
