Nzimiro Oputa is not just a great designer, but a person of insight, as he said to the judges last night on NBC's "Fashion Star," "I just know how I like my lady to look," in response to his dress design for women. Typically known for amazing menswear, Nzimiro wowed the judges scoring a $50,000.00 bid from H&M for his "out of the box" dress. We were extremely happy that this dress went to H&M!

HURRY UP LADIES! This item is surely to sell out. Do not miss your rare opportunity to wear something sexy and chic by Nzimiro Oputa...you never know if we will see another design for women anytime soon. The dress can be purchased online and in the stores...and guess what? It comes in black as well as purple :-)

Nzimiro is Ideal PR Media's absolute favorite Fashion Star, with Orly Shani and Sarah Parrott in our top favorites.

Although neither of them were offered a bid on last night's show, we loved their designs and are still rooting for them as well. I would purchase both ladies' designs from last night.

While there are some other talented designers on the show... a couple in particular could use an attitude adjustment. Either way, the mix of attitudes and fierce designs makes for one amazing show that consumes my Tuesday evenings from 10pm -11pm EST on NBC.
Take a look at what the Fabulous Nicole Christie of H&M had to say about Nzimiro's design. We heart Nicole!
