Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series centers on a fashion-savvy teen who stumbles into a high-powered job at a major (though fictitious) fashion label and immediately upstages a group of jealous adult co-workers. While the show's target tween audience can probably distinguish the show's fantastical nature from reality, it still oversimplifies the true nature of the workplace and sends some so-so messages about respecting others' experience and expertise. That said, the series' heroine is a bright, creative, self-confident teen who speaks her mind and doesn't let anyone's assumptions about her stand in the way of achieving her dreams.

Sexual Content

Stories occasionally touch on attraction between characters; some flirting.


No violence, but lots of slapstick accidents (collisions, falls, and the like) that are exaggerated for humor.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The show offers young viewers strong messages about valuing friendship, working hard, and believing in yourself. It's not a particularly realistic view of the workplace, and some characters aren't quick to respect others, but overall there's a positive take-away.


The series centers on the fashion industry, but it's a fictitious label, and little mention is made of real fashion brands/trends.
