I was very intrigued (given that my daughter is a big Barbie fan) so I begun to play "Fashion Designer" to see what was it all about. Inmediately got caught in the game dynamics and fun. Basically the player is sort of a fashion design director for a modeling agency. There are different "assignments" in which a contractor request specific things for different products. For example, "a boot designer request a model for its most recent line of winter boots. Contract involves making of a catalogue and a photo shoot so you need to select the appropriate location, wardrobe and accesories. First start selecting your model..." and so the fun begins!
The player gets the chance to select models (each one has different facial and racial features), and also select hairdos, clothing, accesories, makeup features (eyeshadows, lipstic, blush, eyelashes...).
You can also design your own clothes by selecting different pieces and cuts, fabrics, imprints... The player can also select photo shoot locations, and actually shoot photo portfolios for each model according to assignments. You can also you direct your own runway show, teaching the models how to walk, poise, turn, etc...
Of course, ocassionally the contractor is not happy with the result so it will request the player to review specific items (like wardrobe, makeup, hairdo, accesories...) but this only adds more fun to the game.
The game is GREAT. If you happen to be looking for great games for girls on Nintendo DS (as I desperately was when I purchased this title) I strongly encourage you to get "Imagine Fashion Designer". You will watch your little girl having hours and hours of endless fun with it.
You are the head of an agency and are required to do certain tasks (some of which have clues that are difficult and hard to figure out, but every time you have to redo it, you lose everything. So if only one thing on the makeup was wrong, you have to fix it, AND redo the dressing, photo shoot, and 5 catwalks THAT TAKE FOREVER!) The free mode is more fun, as you are unlimited in terms of everything.
The workshops include hair (picking between few styles and colors), beauty (picking between few, premade makeup looks), dressing (putting clothes on the model), designing (picking between a few different cuts on a premade design. A bit dissappointed considering there is a TOUCH SCREEN!!!!), catwalk (a few mundane mini games that cause your model to perform well or not), and photography (the fun one, where you choose how the model looks, poses, where, what shade, etc. Then click, you have a photo). The photo shop is the best part of the game by far, while the rest is DEFINITELY aimed at a younger audience.
Overall, this game is iffy. It has it's good points, and would be good for a younger age if not for the frustrating clues (or lack of).
Also, I would like to report a problem. When I take out this game on my lite after playing and insert another game, it says that there is no game pak inserted. So every time, I have to put it back in, take it out, and reinsert the other game. Talk about frustrating! This happened with every Imagine game I've tried!
I am glad I have the game for certain parts, but also glad I didn't pay for it! Consider this carefully before buying. P.S. The graphics are not impressive! Try Animal Crossing Wild World for impressive! Love it!
