Dallas-turned-Austin designer Amber Perley of Pearl Southern Couture is making her big TV debut on the next season of NBC’s second season of Fashion Star. Similarly to Project Runway, contestants are mentored by fashion heavyweights–in this case, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvatos–and compete to have their designs selected. In a twist from the original fashion design competition show, the judges are actually Saks, Macy’s, and Express, who will actually pick up the clothing collections, which are then available to viewers and customers for purchase.
