I personally have never watched an episode of NBC’s Fashion Star since I don’t watch TV on a regular basis and I don’t really like a set schedule on when to watch what. But after seeing Fashion Star’s winner Kara Laricks designs for H&M I really liked it. I especially can relate to her since she said if she had a choice her entire collection would be black and white, my kinda gurl haha!
On the season finale of Fashion Star, Kara Laricks won $6 million in orders for capsule collections in Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Kara designs androgynous clothing for women, inspired by her love of menswear and an avant-garde Japanese design aesthetic. Best known for her hoodie scarves, collar-plus-tie, she puts a spin on what is deemed traditional women’s fashion. The winning collections are already in stores, I hope when I get back to NYC there’s still a few black and white pieces left! Do you like her collection for H&M? And how cute is the campaign featuring herself and model Joan Smalls? LOVE!
