Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fashion-oriented reality series highlights both the creative and business skills needed to create and promote a successful fashion retail line. It features lots of designers and design labels (Norma Kamali, Marchesa) as well as representatives from Elle Magazine, Nordstroms, Bergdorf-Goodman, and Neiman Marcus. Words like "hell" are sometimes audible. Younger kids may find it a little dry, but fashion-loving teens might enjoy it.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers an interesting and rather unglamorous look into what goes into being a successful retail designer. It highlights the need for designers to balance creativity with strong business savvy, and underscores the importance of being open-minded and flexible in order to keep up with and impact changing fashion trends. The importance of being professional and self-confident at all times is also noted.
Despite occasional moments of drama (usually brought on by a designer's unwillingness to take constructive advice) the overall show is pretty mild. It will definitely appeal to fashion and design buffs. But it also offers some interesting lessons about what it really takes to break into the fashion industry, and market a successful fashion line.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
