Love this Fashion Star UWP-style Tailcoat Jacket!

Anyone watching Fashion Star? I usually watch Project Runway but this is a nice diversion till next season. I think it's so interesting that they sell the winning designs right after the show at Saks, Macy's or H&M--what a cool idea. Look at this tailcoat jacket with red sash that is selling at Saks. I love it--so UWP with a Japanese flavor.

Too bad it's $400 and too bad I'm on SYC! I think the designer Kara Laricks (who used to be a 4th grade teacher) is going to be a designer to watch--love her aesthetic!

    That is beautiful! I have a friend who would wear this so well! Must show her.

    Sassy and dramatic. I'd wear something like that in a heartbeat (not that I am going to buy it). Fun!

    Yes, count me in as a Fashion Star fan. And I don't usually watch reality shows. I loved
    this tailcoat too! It's interesting or disappointing, depending on one's point of view, how the final products that go on sale differ from the original. In my humble opinion, Orly's sheath dresses from a couple of weeks ago were ruined when the colorful linings were omitted. That was the part that had made them special. I suppose this is exactly what happens between NYC runways & what finally trickles down to retail.

    I only saw one episode and I liked it. Especially Kara, she is talented! I like this coat very much, might even consider buying it if it weren't black. The color is holding me back, trying to get away from so much black!

    I am not familiar with the show, but this coat is a show stopper for sure! I would also wear if it magically appeared in my closet.

    So cool! I love tails, but I don't have the confidence/attitude to pull them off, so I've never bought a coat with them. But in my fantasy life as a rock star, this would be mine!

    Cool! Reminds me a lot of an Edwardian men's jacket.

    Good thing I already have a long tail jacket. This only goes up to size 6, *eye roll*.
