Tonight's grand finale was a showdown between Kara Laricks, Ronnie Escalante, and Nzimiro Oputa. Each designer was asked to create a full capsule for each retailer: H&M, Saks, and Macy's. And the Season 1 Fashion Star winner is: Kara Laricks!

For H&M, Laricks chose a oversized geometric print to send down the runway on a tiered maxi dress and a pair of blood orange shorts and a tan suit. The geometric print was created fairly faithfully for the final collection, which includes a full-length black evening gown, several blouses, and an handful of dresses. It's running from $14.95 to $49.95 and you can shop it right here.
For her Saks runway collection, Laricks showed a cream jacket with tan leather piecing, a bib-front evening gown with ribbon detail, and spants. The final Saks capsule includes all those pieces, plus an LBD and a cream shift, retailing for between $150 and $425. (Cute sidenote of the day: She named the spants after Terron Shaefer. Aw.) Click over here to shop it.

And for Macy's, Kara showed a shorts-blouse combo, a varied hemline dress in black, and a suit. The collection was produced with a romper and jumpsuit added in, a graphic t-shirt, and slightly watered down prints. Prices for everything stayed under $100 (the cheapest piece is the T-shirt for $29.99, the most expensive is the blazer for $99). Shop it right over here.

And that's it! Stay tuned for our full recap tomorrow.
