I would not be opposed to Thope starting their own fashion house and taking HFTF with them. They could certainly come up with the necessary capital. Assuming they get the rights to their line and everything that goes with it that's a great foundation. Zende could come along and they could give him a line of his own. It would be nice to have rival fashion houses again.

Yes, it could become a new and interesting story, if they´d let it happen.:cool
i liked the rivalry of FC and Spectra Fashions.

Not going to happen. They do not own HFTF and they do not have their own funding, they would have to take out loans or get it from their parents. And, they won't have the money to put into it like they did this last time. And, Bell is not going to pay for another set. JMO Not to mention, what would their SL be? They would be an isolated entity that would not have a real SL. Again JMO

Thomas has 5% of FC he can sell to get some of the money plus I'm sure a bank would give them a loan. As for HFTF, Thomas and Hope are that line. If FC wants to bench it they don't really care about it. Maybe Thomas could trade his shares for the rights to HFTF.

I think Bell would absolutely create a set if it was one that would be used frequently. They gave Deacon an apartment.

And Thomas and Hope could absolutely raise the capital. If Deacon somehow raised capital to open a restaurant in Beverly Hills the magic of TV can help Hope and Thomas. Will it happen prob not but I don't think those are insurmountable roadblocks

You talk as if this is real life. If the show wanted to have HFTF go out on their own and start a fashion house it would happen
Taking about taking out loans and no funding means nothing. This isn’t real If Bell wants it, it can happen and no one would have to run around finding money
This is reel time, not real time

I highly doubt that a new-found company could rival an established one. Even if their owners are high-profiled fashion people. Besides, doesn't HFTF belong to FC? They can't just take it and leave.

They could get the rights to it perhaps for Thomas's shares of FC.

I would be happy with a story like that. This show is desperately in need of a rival fashion house.

I assume they have the $$ but they can also get investors. I don’t think Thomas has a head for business though so they may need to take Steffy along. Would be interesting if this story ends with Eric losing FC AGAIN.

I cannot see Steffy leaving her dad and grand-dad whom she loves and has no issues with at all, to go and work for her brother and a woman she thinks is an idiot. But who knows? LOL. Also, Steffy owns 37.5% of FC and I imagine she has a non-compete agreement with FC, as probably does Tom and Zende. Those are usually for 6 months to 2 years. If Thope opens their own fashion house, they better sell his new place and ask Brooke if they can live in the cabin rent-free. They are going to need every dime they can get, even if he sells his 5% of FC. Maybe they can hire Paris to come and do PR for them?

Though I do like the idea of Tom selling his 5% of FC, maybe Brooke would buy it and then she would have at least a small stake in the company she made very wealthy.

But, I don't see Thope branching out to do anything other than maybe have sex somewhere new, like the sauna at FC or the basement cutting room.

You're right Steffy probably wouldn't leave and to be honest that 5% isn't doing anything for Thomas. I don't think he is interested in running FC anyway, when Ridge mentioned it in past conversation Thomas said Steffy already had that covered. As for capital i assume these people are rolling in dough and can fund a fashion house if needed. Or Thomas can reach out to grandad Massimo to give him the dough. Didn't Massimo fund Ridge when he left FC many years ago? Thomas may not have a non-compete clause since he is family and ditto for Hope. If they did, they could also contest it or Ridge may decide not to enforce a non-compete.

Truthfully I don't see either leaving but it would be different and interesting.

I am down for steam room activities :lol

I would LOVE that…if it’s offscreen… maybe in Paris or Rome or Greece….and we only have to hear about it but never see it….or Thope. The other characters can say things like “talked to Thomas today, their new line is going great”, like they do for other characters that we hardly ever see.:dance2

It’s very easy for this viewer to tell that a Thope LUST fest will be on an episode..all I need to do is look at what this new Hope is wearing..nowadays, the show will only dress her in low cut dresses that show a lot of skin when she shares scenes with Thomas..that’s how I know their shallow sex will be on screen.:puke

Well, pretty much all women dress inappropriately for office work, but Hope's dresses lately always look like she is going out for the night. Like there is no middle ground between awful prairie dresses and clubbing. I guess they match her personality shifting, but they are a bit much.

It’s a bit much because the show is emphasizing Thope is all about lust sex with no strings attached imo. LOL.

I don't remember many people thinking that the Little Hope on the Prairie look was doing anything for anyone. LOL. That was some of the worse styling on this show, ever. I bet AN is very happy that she no longer has to wear the Laura Ingalls rejects. If LHOTP had not been an NBC show, I would think that BB actually used some of the castoffs.
