If you aren't familiar with the name Oscar Fierro... you soon will be. The Lewisville resident is about to make his national TV debut in NBC's Fashion Star on Tuesday, March 13th at 8:30PM.
"Typically, I would not do a reality show or competition, but when I found out about the show, and who was going to be on it, I thought I had to do it," Fierro said. "This was a way to bypass cable and hit network television. I was lucky enough to be picked from thousands. It was hard to get on the show. The application process was grueling and psychologically hard. You had to have you're A game at all times, but I would do it again in heartbeat."
Growing up in his poverty-stricken hometown in El Salvador only further fed the ambitious Oscar Fierro's desire to become successful. Fierro began designing and making clothes when he was 11 years old. "I spotted a beautiful girl and wanted to make dress for her for her to enter into a pageant, which she won," Fierro said. "Designing that was just one of those ah-ha moments. The first thing I thought when I saw her, was that we need to do something with that beauty."
Love him or hate him, he is a thriving businessman who owns four assisted-living facilities and has designed several clothing lines, including couture dresses and a "to go" line, which features women's wear for under $30. The 37-year old, fiery, 4'11" designer always speaks his mind and has established a reputation in the fashion industry as a true diva. Don't expect this self-proclaimed "master manipulator" to back down from anyone - he will do almost anything to win.
I look forward to following his adventure!!
