Tonight marks the season finale of the first season of NBC "Fashion Star". As someone who has covered the show since the beginning, I honestly thought early in the season (based on the first few episodes) that Sarah Parrott was going to take it all. There wasn't a week that I didn't have to apologize to readers that her items were sold out yet again on H&M's website! Were you as shocked as I was when she was eliminated? Well, I can't think of a week when I didn't want to purchase a design from the talented designers who were bought each week. The mentors (Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos) did a phenomenal job mentoring and encouraging the designers and the buyers (Caprice Willard of Macy's, Terron E. Shaffer of Saks Fifth Avenue and Nicole M. Christie) did an amazing job choosing which items to purchase, especially since most items were sold out each week!
