The Fantasy Fashion League
Posted on September 23, 2005Time magazine reports on a new trend for those who prefer to follow the gameplays of Dolce and Gabbana and Manolo Blahnik rather than the Vikings or the Packers: the Fantasy Fashion League.
NFL enthusiasts have Fantasy Football. Now there's a game for armchair fans who would rather root for Dolce & Gabbana. The Fantasy Fashion League (fantasyfashionleague.com), kicking off Sept. 18, lets players draft 10-person teams from a list of 160 designers and celebrities. Points are awarded for every appearance in such magazines as IN STYLE and Vanity Fair and on the red carpet for such events as the Emmys and the Academy Awards (the climax of the league's 24-week season). The winner gets a $1,000 shoe-shopping spree. Tailgate party optional.We admit that we don't completely understand how Fantasy Football works, although we've listened to co-workers natter on about it for years. Yawn. But we'll bet you a new pair of Christian Louboutin heels that we could figure out the intricacies of the Fantasy Fashion League in record time.
