With Project Runway’s potential move to Lifetime still mired in court, Bravo has picked up another fashion design reality series with a working title so basic and broad it might as well be footage of adorable little kids playing dress-up. In The Fashion Show, viewers will choose their favorite designer, who will get to sell his or her clothes via a retailer. Bravo’s also developing Celebrity Sew-Off, in which famous people compete to see who has the ability to launch their own clothing label (I believe the answer is “Everyone, because they have tons and tons of cash”) as well as three other potential fashion-related series. At this rate, I’m fully expecting a series called Sew What?, which will follow a select few of the brattiest Runway contestants (like Kenley, pictured) as they petulantly refuse to obey instructions from Michael Kors, who will host. Seriously, that man has to host something.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Is there such a thing as too much fashion on TV? Do these new programs have any chance of filling the Project Runway void on Bravo? What other cleverly titled shows should they consider doing?
