NBC's reality competition show Fashion Star will return for a second season on March 8, 2013, with Texas native Priscilla Barroso as one of the 13 competing designers. Priscilla, who studied fashion design at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, designs the French retro-inspired women's label Crowned Bird and previously worked as a freelance stylist for Levi Strauss & Co.

Celebrity mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvatos will return to the hit show, which has a multi-million dollar prize of launching a clothing line at Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Express. This season, fashion expert Louise Roe will take over hosting duties from Elle Macpherson. Each week, the buyers’ decisions to purchase designs can make or break the fashion careers of the show’s contestants. Winning designs are immediately sold online and in stores after the show.

“It is a lighthearted escape where comfort and eclecticism depart toward the nearest cosmic destination,” Priscilla says of Crowned Bird, which is carried at stores such as Etcetera, Etc. in Austin, Revolver in San Francisco, and Old Hollywood in Brooklyn. “We want to remain in the front of the closet. Trans-seasonal apparel that you can indulge in for years to come.”

She uses intermingling textures, original prints, and timeless silhouettes – all made in the USA. Priscilla’s Spring 2013 collection features oversize polka dots, watercolor prints, faded stripes, mother of pearl buttons, plaids, and contrast bows.

FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is a co-educational, specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, and Entertainment industries. Known as a one of the top fashion design schools, FIDM is also a leading graphic design school and digital media college.
