Fashion Star Recap: 2012 Season Premiere Live-Blog 3/13/12

Fashion Star Recap: Season Premiere 3/13/12

Tonight is the season premiere of NBC’s new reality show, Fashion Star and we will be live-blogging all of the happenings as the show airs at 9:30PM EST. The show is hosted by supermodel Elle MacPherson and mentored by Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos and Nicole Richie.

The show has already selected 14 fashion designers who will all compete to create the next big fashion brand. Each week the contestants must create a piece for three buyers, Caprice Willard from Macy’s, Nicole Christie from H&M and Terron Schaefer from Saks Fifth Avenue. If the buyers decide to pick up the items created by the budding fashion designers, then they are safe in the competition for that particular week. The winners for each week will have their items sold at the buyers’ stores the day after each episode airs. Those unsuccessful in selling any of the buyers on their creations will be up for elimination. In addition, the mentors have the power to save one designer from elimination!

Stay tuned – We will be providing our live coverage of the show as it airs — tonight! Are you excited to see what each designer will come up with for the buyers tonight? We will have up-to-the-minute coverage of the show — so watch this space!
