In less than 48 hours, the finale of Fashion Star will air—that's Friday on NBC 8/7c. The designers are just one step away from winning the prize! I am feeling both happy and sad. Because I love watching the process behind creating the designs, this show about fashion desgners is one of my faves. Definitely must-see TV!
OY, vey. Now I am starting to get all get verklempt over the finale !!! Need to step back and focus on this recap for the second to last episode... Trending Now & Then.
Earlier this week I shared my sketch of Hunter Bell's lace dress with a keyhole neckline and peplum flare with pocket. Today I just have to talk about her amazing Fit and Flare dress. The mentors and the judges just love this dress. Express bids $50,000, Macy's bids $60,000 - and then Terron at Saks crushes them with a bid of $200,000. He admires the styling that recalls Christian Dior's New Look, launched in 1947, and he's thrilled with Hunter's "home run."
If you're looking for more fashion news on Hunter, check out her Hunter Dixon Clothing Line website, her blog, and her updates on Twitter, view her photos at @hunterdixon Instagram, and see her faves on Pinterest. Before I forget, Hunter has a 30% off Mother's Day Sale. Check it out here.
Have to add that I really loved the designs by Daniel, Cassandra and the duo JesseRay and Garrett. Want to get a sneak peak at the behind the scenes action on Fashion Star?

So what will happen next in the big Fashion Star finale on Friday? It may sound silly, but I'm crossing my fingers for all of them! I can't wait!
