Project Runway: Fashion Startup
About Project Runway: Fashion Startup
A once in a lifetime chance for entrepreneurs
07:30 PM - 08:30 PM
Set in New York City’s celebrated fashion district, aspiring fashion and beauty entrepreneurs fight for the chance to secure funds from a panel of expert investors to help grow their budding ventures. The American reality television series Project Runway: Fashion Startup makes its way onto SABC 3 from 11 April 2019 at19:30.
Project Runway: Fashion Startup isn't a traditional competition in the same way as its parent series. It gives aspiring fashion and beauty entrepreneurs a chance to get money and mentoring from industry leaders. The hopefuls pitch their concepts to members of an expert panel who are willing to put their own time and money on the line when they hear about a concept that they believe in. To find those potential diamonds in the rough, the investors offer the entrepreneurs sage advice while also showing them tough love.
The fashion and beauty titans helming the series include Katia Beauchamp, the Co-Founder & CEO of beauty retailer Birchbox; tech marketplace maven and CEO of plus-size clothing rental startup Gwynnie Bee, Christine Hunsicker; celebrated fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff; and business mentor of the CFDA Incubator program, CEO of Hilldun Corporation and Chairman of Interluxe Holdings LLC, Gary Wassner.
With their own money and time on the line, the experts will be tough critics on each entrepreneur as they analyze their concepts. Fashion Inc. could be the beginning of a beautiful partnership for some, or the end of a dream for others.
Stay tuned and watch how aspiring fashion entrepreneurs present their companies to several investors in hopes to gain a deal and grow their businesses every Thursday from 11th April, 2019 at 19:30 on SABC 3, “The Stage Is Yours.”
