Queer Eye star Tan France has landed a new show on Netlifx, this time without the rest of the Fab Five. Can you believe?
The fashion expert will be teaming up not with Antoni Perowski or Karamo Brown, but instead British designer Alexa Chung.
Chung and France will host Next in Fashion, a new reality series where designers compete to be the next big name to hit the glossy style sections.
‘Next in Fashion begins with eighteen designers who face challenges centring on a different trend or design style that has influenced the way the entire world dresses,’ Netflix explained in a statement.
‘These talented contestants have worked for major brands and dressed A-list celebrities, and will now compete head-to-head to see who has the skill, originality and determination to win the grand prize: $250,000 and an opportunity to debut their collection with luxury fashion retailer Net-a-Porter.’
For the 10-part series, special guest judges will include celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart and Instagram’s director of fashion partnerships, Eva Chen.
Moreover, additional cameos (maybe from the rest of the Fab Five?) will be announced.
It’ll see France and Chung set challenges for 18 designer-hopefuls that center on a specific trend or style.
But rather than being new on the scene, these contenders will have worked with major brands and dressed a glittering rolodex of A-list celebrities. All ready and rearing to jumpstart their careers.
Furthermore, the series is created and produced by theoldschool and is executive produced by Robin Ashbrook and Yasmin Shackleton. As well as co-executive producer Adam Cooper, Netflix said.
It’s unsurprising France has scored a prime spot on Netflix’s output considering his resumé.
The Doncaster, UK-born fashion designer kicked-off his fashion career by working for Zara. Before bouncing to Selfridges on their wholesale business side and ending at Chanel.
He founded his women’s clothing line, Kingdom & State, in late 2011. He’s also a partner in the 2016-founded Rachel Parcell clothing line.
