Fashion Star is an American reality television series on NBC, which focuses on fashion design and is hosted by model Elle Macpherson. The contestants compete with each other to create the best clothes and have them purchased by a buyer from one of three stores: Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, and H&M. Each week they are restricted in time, materials and theme. Any designer whose clothes are not purchased that week is up for elimination from the show. Their designs are judged by the celebrity mentors who will save one unsold contestant each week. Then the three buyers choose which of the remaining unsold designers is sent home. At the end of the season, the three remaining contestants must create separate showcases of three garments for each retailer. Whoever meets the needs of the three retailers will be named "Fashion Star" and will receive a capsule collection worth $6 million within each store.
On May 11, 2012, NBC renewed Fashion Star for a second season. Season 2 is set to premiere on Friday, March 8, 2013.
