We were always kind of bummed that The Hills' cameras never went behind the scenes of the Lauren Conrad Collection, but now, it appears MTV is making amends. The network has taken its time-tested reality storyline (20-something girl from the LA 'burbs trains her sparkly eyes and sideswept bangs on the fashion industry), and plopped it in the lap of one Jazmin Whitley, whose label, Li Cari, apparently closed last spring's BOXEight Fashion Week (we must have missed that one). Her new reality series, House of Jazmin, doesn't premiere for another month, but Whitley sent us a link to a trailer which proves that (unlike other MTV designers we won't name) she actually does make the stuff herself. Watch as she squeals at moths, shouts at models, and fights over bathroom time with her little brother, all while finding the time to sew labels in by hand! And she even has her own Audrina!
