Following in the footsteps of Netflix’s Next in Fashion, Amazon have created their own fashion design series which launches on Friday, March 27th.
Making the Cut sees two Project Runway alum, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, challenge twelve designers for the chance to win an insane prize which would launch their careers. The winner of Making the Cut will win $1,000,000 to create their debut collection, which will then be made for sale on Amazon worldwide.
Each Friday, two episodes will drop to Amazon Prime, culminating in a grand finale on Friday, April 24th.
So, with the show kicking off, we thought it best to get to know the cast of designers better. We found them on Instagram!
