A new competition series that will focus on fashion design is set to debut during the 2011-2012 season. The new show, which will be called Fashion Star, will be airing on NBC and will be hosted by Elle Macpherson, who is known for her modeling career, according to the Beverly Hills Courier.
The competition will include 12 prospective fashion designers on their quest to have their collection sold at one of the most successful retail stores, which is expected to be released when the show begins. The contestants will have to design everything from dresses and denim to lingerie and shoes, and each week's winning design will be on sale to viewers, the news source reports.
The producers of the show are Ben Silverman, Jane Lipstiz and Dan Cutforth. Lipstiz and Cutforth also produce Project Runway and Top Chef.
Fashion design students can expect keen competition when entering this field after graduation. In addition, they may earn up to $62,000, which was the average annual salary for these professionals in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
