Design Genius

New York – Fashion One’s original design-based reality competition, Design Genius, is set to premiere its second season this November. The premiere fashion, entertainment and lifestyle international broadcaster introduces nine talented emerging fashion designers from around the world gathered together with one goal in mind: to be crowned the new fashion prodigy and win the title of Design Genius.

Renowned celebrity stylist and TV presenter, Kalee Hewlett, will be this season’s host judge, whose fashion expertise will be influential in determining the winner. Joining her in the panel is Britain’s Top Designer recipient and brand ambassador, Matthew O’Brien, and celebrity fashion and costume designer for Lady Gaga, Lisa Clayton.

Design Genius is a 6-episode series that challenges designers to push their creativity and skills by making something unimaginable fashionable. In each episode, three designers are surprised with three unconventional materials such as baby bottles, LEDs and even 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 over-all vision.
