It was always a shame to see so many be dissmissive about it because it has a "female-friendly (sic)" theme. I actually thought they made a version of it with videogames, which seemed dissapointing to me.
They were working on a video game development retheme for a long time. I'm really glad they are republishing with the original theme, personally. I backed this one, though I might pull out and just wait for retail in the end. Depends on how excited my wife is to play it most likely.
It's a solid economic worker placement game. I like the "putting on a show" competition aspect of it quite a bit. The only other game I know of / have played with that kind of a show mechanic is Dungeon Petz. (I'm sure there are others that do similarly.)
Also, +1 to them keeping the fashion theme instead of going with video games.

I enjoy this concept too. The only other ones I can think of are Colosseum and Trickerion, but the latter was too far in the Euro weeds for me (in the vein of overblown KS stuff like Feudum). I wanted to pick up Colosseum but missed the boat on the original DoW edition and really didn't like the art direction on the re-issue from Tasty Minstrel.
