Bravo Gets Another 'Fashion Show'
Tuesday, November 04, 2008
Bravo's Project Runway has revolutionized reality TV programming by giving us an opportunity to look into the lives of aspiring fashion designers. In fact, the show has produced so much talent and kick-started fashion careers of some hopefuls. Recently, Bravo announced that they have picked up another fashion design creative competition series titled The Fashion Show, in which the winner will be chosen by viewers and will have their designs sold by a retailer.
"Bravo celebrates the very best in food, fashion, design, beauty and pop culture, and 'The Fashion Show' is the next step in expanding our fashion affinity group, and the perfect complement to our successful fashion series 'Tim Gunn's Guide to Style' and 'The Rachel Zoe Project,'" Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Bravo Media, said in a statement.
Produced by 3 Ball Productions, the show is already casting and has scheduled open calls in early this month. For those who are interested, you must attend one of the nationwide castings alls in Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago or New York to meet with a fashion consultant, and must bring three articles of clothing that best showcase their work as a designer, as well as a portfolio, a copy of a government issued photo ID and a completed application form (available for download at www.BravoTV.com/casting) to be considered for the series.
Interested parties read on for the casting call details.
For those who are in the Los Angeles area, casting calls began on Sunday, November 2 at the Apple Restaurant and Lounge. If you missed that venue, you can head on over to New York on Sunday, November 16 at The Park at 118 Tenth Avenue (at 18th Street) at 9am to 6pm.
