    The real stars are the designers, and it's an eclectic bunch, some already working in the industry, others who dream to.

    Absent from this show are the ridiculous clothes that look like they belong on clowns and strippers. In their place are serious, wearable clothes that are, for the most part, so beautiful, so well-tailored and so, yes, sellable, that you'll want to buy them right up.

    If you can see the forest through the trees, it's good, wearable fashion that's the real "fashion star" on this show, and it gives viewers an unusual glimpse into the world of retail despite all the superfluous hoopla.

    Fashion Star's debut lasts 90 minutes but feels as though it's about five hours.

    Fashion Star is a skimpy little show. You might buy something in the evening, but beware those morning-after regrets.

    The show moves along with the dull, humming smoothness of commerce. [19 Mar 2012, p.42]
