Were you watching NBC’s new hit Fashion Star on Tuesday night? I couldn’t help but feel immense admiration for Kara Laricks who is the first winner of the reality show. Laricks, who is a former fourth grade teacher, followed her dream of becoming a fashion designer and made it through the competition to earn the grand prize of Fashion Star- a $6 million deal for her collections with Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and H&M.
The exclusive collections are available in stores now and online at Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. Laricks stayed true to the menswear elements that helped win the attention of the buyers from the three retailers.
I love that all of the pieces are very versatile, and will probably pair nicely with items you already have in your closet. My favorite piece is a long black skirt with sexy slits on both sides of the legs. It’s a cool look with a contemporary twist that can be dressed up or worn casually. It’s available at H&M now! I hope to see much more from the talented designer and a Fashion Star winner!
