Fashion One launches 2nd season of ‘Design Genius’

MUMBAI: Fashion One, a global lifestyle and entertainment TV network for women, is back with the second season of its original reality design competition series, ‘Design Genius’.

In this edition, designers from Malaysia, Hong Kong, the UK, Australia, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands will compete for a chance to win $20,000.

The jury includes renowned celebrity stylist and TV presenter Kalee Hewlett, Britain’s top designer Matthew O’Brien, and celebrity fashion and costume designer for Lady Gaga, Lisa Clayton.

The show will premiere on 20 November airing at 9:30 pm every Thursday. It will introduce nine emerging fashion designers from around the world with the goal to be crowned the new fashion prodigy and win the title of ‘Design Genius’.

‘Design Genius’ is a six-episode series that challenges designers to push their creativity and skills by making something unimaginable fashionable. In each episode, three designers will be surprised with three unconventional materials like baby bottles, LEDs and a sparkling Christmas tree plus a surprise element that they need to incorporate within their design. Using only the items provided, they must create an accessory, undergarment and wardrobe to create an overall vision.

The show’s executive producer Ashley Jordan said, “’Design Genius’ is a fashion-packed competition that challenges versatile fashion designers to create original and innovative clothing and accessories set on a higher level of difficulty with the introduction of the unconventional material element as their main component to work with. The network will continue to create engaging and captivating programmes that showcase up and coming local designers and provide these talents worldwide exposure through our network.”

‘Design Genius’ is a part of Fashion One’s original programming, created by executive producers Michael Gleissner and Ashley Jordan, with Nichole Millikan as this season’s series producer.
