  1. 50
    A glossy hunk of over-the-top, sleaze 'n' tease melodrama.
  2. 50
    Both soaps are perfectly awful on almost every level, which makes them nothing, if not, well, hilariously perfect soap scum.
  3. 50
    It's awash in sudsy Bo Derek and Morgan Fairchild, plus a bit of Tippi Hedren. But slow tension fails to fill the first episode, and the acting is a tangle of scorns.
  4. 25
    [It doesn't] live up to its camp catfight billing, in large part because Derek doesn't have this kind of drag-queen Dynasty performance in her. Not only does the role take more than the minimal acting skills she possesses, it also takes a level of on-camera comfort she has never mastered.
  5. Astute observers may find no coincidence that it mimics the American soap The Bold and the Beautiful.

    "Fashion House" is a bit more coherent, if still ludicrous.
  7. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    Passable production values, naughtiness about as salty as an issue of Maxim and some pretty stiff acting provide modest camp allure, but it's hard to imagine either new series qualifying as a so-bad-it's-good guilty pleasure.

    Bo Derek's acting sucks, but I can't wait till Morgan knocks the stuffing out of her...I will keep tuning in just for that!!!

    I LOVE FASHION HOUSE. I don't normally watch soaps, but this show is something else. I tried watching just one episode and it wasnt even the first and already i was hooked. OKay, i admit that to the avid viewer and fan the flashbacks can get a bit annoying, but when i missed a few episodes unavoidably, it helped a whole lot. I guess its function depends on ow you look at it. But all in all, i alsolutely LOVE fashion house. The actors are gorgeous, the script may be mellowdramatic and some of the actors dont act as well as you would want, but they all fit perfectly in this show. And who cares?Its a guilty pleasure that i don't want to end. Show creators and producers listen to your audience!!! We loved it. Who cares what the critics say? TRue, fashion house may have some similarities with the bold and the beautiful, but here's the difference-- i coudnt stand the bold and the beautiful. I loved fashion house. It has just enough drama and kick in it to attract even the older teens like me. Critics Shmitics. We outnumber them. I am a number one fashion house fan!!! Please bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! season two please. Expand

    I would be totally addicted if not for the annoying flash backs. I was hoping that eventually those would stop once they had hooked their audience but I could be wrong. The son is Hot! He's at least worth turning to it for 5 minutes. Expand
