NBC's Fashion Star, an inspired concept bridging the runway and retail aspects of the apparel industry, premiered Tuesday with a ninety minute episode. The reality competition not only features clothing and fragrance billionaire Jessica Simpson, House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate founder Nicole Richie, and former GQ Designer of the Year John Varvatos counseling participants, H&M, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue buyers have the option to place orders, allowing viewers to purchase the aspiring designer's pieces either online immediately or the following day in store. Below are this week's winners and watch an all new Fashion Star next Tuesday (10:00 pm).
