I have seen a commercial for a new show beginning in March for fashion . I cannot remember the title but I am thinking it is on CBS or NBC on Thursdays ??? Of course I would have a memory gap while I am writing this! ........ anyone going to watch? Please jump in & update with correct title of the show & network .... Thanks so much! ...

I think the title is '' Fashion Show'' I could be wrong.. but there is a definite twist to this show.. The designs you see will be made available for sale the next day at stores we are all familiar with.
Obviously it had to have been taped a while back for them to do this. but this might be fun..
Don't worry about the who and whens Kitty. As it gets closer to the time they air it. you will see more and more commercials for it.

Jessica Simpson has something to do with this I think she's the host? Major networks trying to cash in on the popularity of Project Runway.

The teasers haven't been real clear on this. but I think she may be a judge maybe.. I am not sure.. will try to pay more attention to the next teaser..
I do know its a bit different in format from Project Runway. The fact they have this slotted in prime time.. on a major channel tells us all that indeed.. its a year for design, fashion and sewing. FINALLY.

It is called Fashion Star. According to IMDB:

The show, hosted by supermodel Elle Macpherson, will see designers from various fields compete for a contract that will put their fashion lines in retail stores. The Times said viewers will be able to buy the contestants' designs online, with NBC getting a share of sales.

Yeah, when I saw this I thought, "How in the WORLD can the designs be on sale the next day?"

Simply the *physical* logistics of getting the fabric, making the garment (in different sizes no less!), then the physical transportation - since it is most likely coming from a factory in China.

Yep. This show *had* to have been taped a while ago.

Admittedly, the jaded Gen-Xer in me thought, "Great. Another infommercial disguised as a fashion show / contest show."

Bumping this up as I did not realize the show was already talked about. Shall we all watch and make comments?

Thank you for the info! I just noticed it is opposite one of DH favorites NCIS! Tricky of the NBC network to do that! .... Of course we know "Gibbs & Ducky" are easy on the eyes.... :biggrin:

Hope I can check it out some ..... finally something we do not need cable to watch it!
