"Fashion Star" puts contestants to the test each week to see how they react in a variety of real-world scenarios to determine who has the vision and desire to build a fashion empire and achieve their dream. With top experts as their guides and mentors throughout the process, designers will have to be as aware of the business aspect of fashion as they are of creativity. To further benefit designers, the series allows viewers at home to buy the winning designs each week, adding an exciting twist to fashion competitions. In the end, one designer will successfully combine fashion and business to become the next "Fashion Star" and win a multi-million dollar prize to exclusively sell their entire fashion line in three of the biggest retailers in the world.

The "Fashion Star" format was developed by Ben Silverman of Electus (NBC's "The Biggest Loser," "The Office" and "The Tudors"), Rick Ringbakk of Emmy Award-winning 5x5 Media ("Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution"), and E.J. Johnston and James Deutch of EJD Productions.

The show is executive-produced by Elle Macpherson, Silverman of Electus, Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth of The Magical Elves, Rick Ringbakk of 5x5 Media and E.J. Johnston and James Deutch of EJD Productions. Electus/Engine Distribution will retain all international distribution rights.
