What a way to start the show! Wasn’t Nicole Richie’s collection absolutely breathtaking? She’s such a great inspiration for all of our budding designers.
Then, everything turned bittersweet. We were getting so close to finding out who our Fashion Star would be – it was so exciting! But I was not excited AT ALL about having to send 3 people home. And when they all just broke down on stage like that? I’ll admit, I was having a tough time keeping it together.
Thankfully, Kara’s designs took my mind off of all the pressure. I liked her dress but I LOVED that trench! I am so glad to finally get one of her pieces into our stores before the finale. What else blew us away? Ronnie’s suit! It was amazing.
Then there was Nzimiro, who committed the fatal mistake of going against his design aesthetic. Big mistake! That safari jacket was not at all in-line with his target customer. But in the end, we sent Nikki, Luciana and Orly home. It was SUCH a tough decision. But I am 100% confident that all of our final three contestants have what it takes to design a capsule collection for a major retailer – I can’t wait to see what they bring to the finale!
