Tan France may be the resident fashion guru on Netflix’s Queer Eye, but soon he will be lending his expert advice to a new group of hopefuls—18 to be exact. France and Alexa Chung are set to host a new unscripted, 10 epiosde fashion competition series (think Project Runway meets…Tan France) on Netflix titled Next in Fashion.
On the show 18 aspiring designers will compete in a series of fashion challenges and activities that focus on “a different trend or design style that has influenced the way the entire world dresses,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Compared to other fashion competition shows, Next In Fashion‘s 18 designers are no amateurs and have already worked with major brands and celebrities. At the end of the competition, the winner will be awarded $250,000 to jumpstart their own fashion career and possibly get the chance to collaborate with retail behemoth Net-a-Porter.
Joining France and Chung are stylist and fashion editor Elizabeth Stewart—who is responsible for styling Hollywood faves Julia Roberts, Gal Gadot, Jessica Chastain and more— and Eva Chen, director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, who will be guest judges, along with several other names to be announced. Robin Ashbrook and Yasmin Shackleton will be executive producing Next in Fashion. Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for the series but we can still see France in Queer Eye, streaming now on Netflix.
