After a slight delay thanks to lockdown, You Are What You Wear finally landed on our screens on Thursday, June 11th.

The BBC One series draws inspiration from the likes of Gok Wan and Trinny and Susannah’s fashion shows. It will follow five stylists tasked with helping the British public transform their style. Beloved reality star turned TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal will oversee the show as the host.

Each episode will see participants have the stylists help transform their entire wardrobe based off of their personalities. This will help their outsides reflect the inside; except some Queer Eye-worthy transformations!

One of the stylists on this first series is Nana Acheampong. Although you might not recognise the stylist immediately, we’re sure you’ll recognise her celebrity clientele. Find out everything you need to know about the You Are What You Wear stylist here.
