Between the glamour, the glitz, and the glossy pages of Vogue hides a realm of fashion less frequently seen. It’s the realm where blood and tears accumulate alongside the perspiration Anna Wintour’s presence surely causes. That’s right, the second season s of The Fashion Fund premieres tonight, providing a second season of a truly unprecedented look at the pure and unique emotion that comes with birthing a brand. Design is an industry like rock ‘n’ roll–a “many will enter, few will win” kinda game.
The CFDA picks ten designers, many of whom fashion followers will already feel acquainted with (Tanya Taylor’s signature painted prints, Wes Gordon’s minimal cuts, Grey Ant’s sleek shades, Edie Parker’s bloggerati clutches, and Gigi Burris’s youthful millinery, to name a few)–the first episode will track the initial application process. You’ll laugh, cry, and imagine that you too, are BFFs with Ms. Wintour, just gently sparring over which designers you feel have the most potential, and share the thrill as the accepted candidates race to call their moms and relay the news.
Season two of The Fashion Fund premieres on Ovation on Wednesday, November 5th at 10 p.m. ET.
