A Kid's Review on November 9, 2006
I'm not very good at drawing but i love designing outfits so i thought this game would be perfect. And it is! So you start a designer label and start designing clothes for fashion shows in the U.S. Each show has a theme and 3 judges. you have to use the theme in your outfits and if you know the judges preferences you should use those too. then you pick your model and the music they'll walk to. then they walk the runway. a good model will have a good walk and not stumble. a good model who's confident can improve your score. then the judges rate you. if you do well you get 'diva points' which you can give to different models to improve their skills. you can also then sell your clothes and buy new fabrics.

as you move up in the game you can unlock different models and judge's preferences. i haven't gotten out of the U.S yet but i really love this game. the only drawback is that the graphics aren't amazing but it's still worth it.

My daughter and I played it pretty much straight through the Martin Luther King, Jr. three-day weekend. We hardly noticed the time fly by. My daughter is 8 years old, third grade, and loves to draw. We got hooked on Project Runway, where she would try to design an outfit based on the challenges the contestents were faced with - and she and I even made one of the dresses she designed. So, here it is, six months later and she is firm in her resolve to become a fashion designer (I'll enjoy it while it lasts. : ) and along comes a commercial for Designer's World. Well, we had to have it. And it was worth every penny. It is perfect for the 8,9,10 year old range. It is easy to hook up to the TV, and there is NO DRAWING involved at all. If you can click a remote control, you can play this game. It is a one-person game, but it is easy to have two people take turns. It gives a taste of what it means to select fabrics, choose the right cut, understand your audience, what to look for in a model, selling in different markets, and realizing that judges don't always have good taste. : ) I also love the map of the world included, so kids can see the different markets available to show their outfits. Once you hit every region in the US, you can then choose Tokyo, Paris, Milan, South Africa, and more! Once you get to the end of the game, it gives you a summary of how you did. Be sure to write it down, because this game doesn't give you the option to save. Then, play it again and see if you can beat your own totals. It is pretty easy for 10 years old and up to figure out how to design for the judges and get five stars for every design, but just because the judges like your outfit doesn't mean it'll sell in that market. I love how the game forces you to choose between giving the judges what they want, giving the market what it wants, and designing to please yourself. I highly recommend it.

This game is definitely worth the price! I am 12 years old and I find myself playing this game every single day! Dream Life was fun too, but it got a little boring and now I rarely play with it. But Designer's World is SO much better!!!!!! I am going to try and help you as much as I can.......

Okay, so when you first start off you have 4 choices. You can choose NEW GAME, LOAD GAME,DESIGN CLOTHES, or OPTIONS. When you press NEW GAME, the very first screen that shows up is a magazine cover. From the magazine cover you can choose any of the options... "NEW FABRICS", "FASION HINTS AND TIPS", "JUDGE SPEAKS HIS/HER MIND", AND "PLUS! ALL ABOUT EMMA" (or whatever the model's name is) On the remote that you use, it says, "SELECT", "MENU", "CANCEL", and it has 4 arrow keys. If you press MENU, 5 options appear. MAGAZINE, FASHION REPORT, FASION SHOW, PROFILES, and END TURN. FASION REPORT shows your income, as well as cash reserves, and how well your clothes are selling. FASHION SHOW shows a map of the world. You first pick any place from the U.S. Once you conquer the U.S., you will move on to the other side of the world, like Asia, Africa, etc. Winning will help you earn cash and improve your skills. PROFILE is info on models and judges. Use the 4 arrow keys to choose a character and press SELECT for more details. As soon as you conquer a place a judge will give you a preference, such as: dislikes Argyle, or loves Emma (a model). You will find these preferences in the PROFILES part. And finally you have the option END TURN. When you press this button, different options will appear; FASION SHOW (which brings you back to the map), MANAGE BOOKMARKS (earn extra income next turn), RESEARCH NEW DESIGNS (improve your design skills and increase the variety of clothing you can create.

I bought this game for my 8 year-old daughter for Christmas. She loves the game so far, but my complaint is that the picture is TERRIBLE! It reminds me of the Atari video games they had when I was a kid! I was expecting it to look similar to a video game system like PS2, but it does NOT! We don't have anything like a PS2, which is why I think my daughter doesn't care. But if your kid has one, I think they'll be disappointed in the graphics on this. Otherwise, it seems like a good game.

A Kid's Review on December 26, 2006
This game is a great game for people who love fasion desinging. To get started with your game, you first have to decide where you want to have your fasion show. At first, you have fasion shows only in the US, but as you get better, you get to have them in more places. Each place has three judges and a set amount of outfits you have to create. In the game, you can reasearch the judges and learn their prefrences and how they judge. Some are trickier than others to impress. Also, each place has a theme. For example, at the Los Angles fasion show, you might have to create two outfits that use polka dot and winter colored fabrics. Once you have selected a place, you go to the design table, were you create your outfits. But, the tricky thing is is that you have a set budget. What this means is that it costs you to create a piece of your outfit. Each color and design is a different design. You also have to pay to particapate in the show. once you designed all your outfits, you pick your models, their hairstyle, and they music they use in the show. The more you play, the more models you get. Then the fasion show starts. The models go down the run way. after they finish, the judges give you their score. The tougher ones often are VERY hard to impress. if you do well, and get good scores, you earn "diva points" which allows your models to have special abilites. You also can unlock judges prefrence, which gives you tips on what they like and dislike. This is a really great game, for you learn how to spend your money wiselly, so you can create really great designs. I also think that you learn how to mix and match colors and clothing items, and can use the abilties in real life. Also, this game has very easy setup, for all you do is take the little game consle and plug it into the tv and it's on.Read more ›
