Macy's launches exclusive range of 'Fashion Star' winner
May '12
During a thrilling one hour finale, Kara Laricks, 38, was named winner of NBC's exciting, new reality competition “Fashion Star.” Throughout the season, 14 talented designers competed in a series of challenges and eliminations, vying for the ultimate prize to sell one unique collection in each of three of the country's largest retail stores, including America's Department Store, Macy's. Laricks exclusive collection for Macy's highlights her avant-garde aesthetic and unique approach to traditional women's fashion, and is available at 110 Macy's stores across the country and on macys.com for a limited time.

“We are extremely excited to have NBC's 'Fashion Star'winner Kara Laricks' collection sold exclusively for Macy's,” said Martine Reardon, chief marketing officer for Macy's.

“This show has been an amazing platform for aspiring designers, catapulting their careers into the spotlight and giving them real experience in balancing the demands of fashion and retail.

“Kara has demonstrated great design talent over the course of the show, and Macy's is the perfect place to launch a debut collection accessible to customers across America. We congratulate Kara on her success on 'Fashion Star' and expect that customers will be eager to get their hands on a piece of this special collection.”

Kara Laricks “Fashion Star” capsule for Macy's reflects the designer's signature styling with a focus on blending feminine with masculine silhouettes. With modest details and clean lines, the collection is a fusion of collectible pieces that can easily transition from day-to-night.

Priced on average from $29 - $99, the collection will feature soft fabrics and graphic prints in dresses, pants and tops. The line is grounded in black, red and cream with touches of gold and bronze infused throughout.

Standout pieces include dresses with subtle high-low hems, a cropped three-quarter sleeve blazer, jumpsuit, pleated pants and great blouses. The Kara Laricks collection for Macy's combines pieces that are modern and versatile for a woman on the go.

As a former fourth grade school teacher, Kara always told her students to be true to themselves. Finally, she took her own advice and pursued a career in fashion. Designing androgynous clothing for men and women, Kara is inspired by her love of menswear and an avant-garde, Japanese design aesthetic. Best known for her hoodie scarves and collar-and-ties, Laricks put a spin on what is deemed traditional women's fashion.
