Nicole Richie, designer and reality show veteran, will mentor 14 undiscovered designers alongside Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos in the upcoming NBC reality fashion competition, Fashion Star hosted by Elle Macpherson. Each week, the contestants create looks based on a theme and buyers for major retail stores - Caprice Willard, (Macy’s), Nicole Christie (H&M) and Terron E. Schaefer (Saks Fifth Avenue) – judge the best outfits.
The winning looks are available to purchase in store and online the very next day. The designers that fail to impress the buyers are up for elimination. The ultimate winner of the competition is set to receive a multi-million dollar prize to launch their collections in Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
As told to WWD, Nicole says “I am looking forward to having women and men across America not only getting to know these incredibly talented designers but also getting to buy their designs, it’s something that has never been done before.”
Can’t wait until the March 13th premiere of Fashion Star to see more Nicole?
