Time to think about summer for the remaining fashion designers on NBC’s brand new reality TV series, Fashion Star. Tonight, the clothiers design looks forecasted by retail-store reporters for summer. Keep reading to find out what stores decide to buy their hot summer trends!
The 12 designers include Orly Shani, Edmond Newton, Nikki Poulos, Barbara Bates, Ross Bennett, Sarah Parrott, Ronnie Escalante, Luciana Scarabello, Lizzie Parker, Lisa Vian Hunter, Nzimiro Oputa and Kara Laricks.
The three mentors are Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos. The buyers are Nicole Christie from H&M, Terron Schaefer from Saks Fifth Avenue and Caprice Willard from Macy’s.
LMFAO kicks off the summer-season show singing their party anthem song. Host Elle Macpherson announces that this week, the designers will create fun summer looks. Week in and week out, the designers have been presenting their showcases to the buyers. If the buyers want to purchase the collection then the designers’ creations will be sold in their stores and on-line along with earning a spot in the competition moving forward. But, for those who do not make a deal–they’re at risk for elimination.
First up, Orly, Ronnie and Barbara show their collections to the buyers. Orly gets an offer from Saks Fifth Avenue for $120,000; but no offers are made for Barbara and Ronnie.
Next, Nikki creates jumpsuits; Sarah shows sexy dresses with high slits and Nzimiro designs summer-wear for men. H&M offers Sarah $50,000; Nikki receives $50,000 from Macy’s and Nzimiro gets $50,000 from H&M.
Luciana, Ross and Lisa face the buyers. Unfortunately, no offers are made for Luciana and Lisa but Ross gets an offer for $120,000 from Macy’s.
Lastly, Edmond designs Maxi dresses; Lizzie makes sheath dresses and Kara steps out of her comfort zone and uses bright, bold colors. Kara gets a $50,000 offer from Saks Fifth Avenue while Lizzie and Edmond didn’t make a sale.
The six designers who didn’t make sales are Barbara, Ronnie, Luciana, Lisa, Lizzie and Edmond. The designers in the bottom three facing possible elimination are Lizzie, Edmond and Luciana. The mentors choose to save Edmond and the buyers decide to send home Lizzie Parker.
