Hit fashion reality-competition show Fashion Star season two premiere will air March 8th on NBC. Fans are excited to see what the talented groups of designers will bring to the runway this season.
The designers are mentored by celebrity fashion designers Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos. Each mentor will guide their selected group of designers through the competition in hopes of one of their own becoming the next top brand. Richie recently told Just Jared, “As far as mentoring, John, Jessica, and I all kinda felt that we wanted to work with the designers more and we were feeling a little spread thin [last season] working with all 14 designers. So we have now split them up into groups so I got my group that I’m working with and the same goes for John and Jessica.”
Simpson is excited to be working with teams this year. She said in an interview for NBC that “this season she gets to develop personal relationships with my designers.”
Each week the designers will present their fashions to top buyers from Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Express and some, all or none of the pieces may be bought each week. Varvatos commented “the buyers are the judge and jury.”
Fashion Star is different from any other fashion series in that the viewers can go out and buy the items they saw air on the show the next day in stores. This instant gratification is sure to keep viewers tuned in to scope out the next hot look.
The show has also welcomed in a brand new host for season two, Louise Roe.
Season two of Fashion Star will premiere on March 8th on NBC at 8pm.
