Is “Next in Fashion” worth watching?

I recently finished the show “Next in Fashion,” on Netflix, which revolves around a group of 18 talented clothing designers competing for $250,000 and a chance to start a clothing line with Net-a-Porter (a high end clothing site). At first, I was skeptical of the show, I figured it wouldn’t catch my attention and that it wouldn’t be what I though it was. However, I was so wrong. I cannot stop talking about the show to my friends and family. I would watch it again even though I know the winner, it’s that good.

I won’t write any spoilers because that’s wrong for people that are watching or plan to (:

The main idea of the show is to see how the designers work in pairs and how they can create different outfits that go along with the given theme in two days, might I add. Each week, a pair is eliminated until they are left with four people. Then they compete against each other. I was amazed by every single outfit that was made. It is different than the “fashion” I see everyday, it is runway fashion. Red carpet fashion. Real fashion. It’s what I want to do with my life. I want to be in that environment surrounded by talented designers and gorgeous clothes.

One of the things I personally liked was that the hosts, Tan France and Alexa Chung, actually critiqued the looks along with well known designers. They didn’t just host the show, they judged as well and I thought that was really interesting. Most hosts don’t judge, they just keep the show going. Plus, they were really funny and they kept the show lighthearted.

The show is ten episodes that are about an hour long each which makes the watcher really anticipate what is going to happen next. I watched the show in a couple days. I did not hesitate. I hope they come out with a new season and I can’t wait to watch it if they do.

So, to answer the question, yes, “Next in Fashion” is worth watching!!
