Amazon’s ‘Making the Cut’ Reveals Season Two Designers
Ten designers will be competing in the second season of the reality TV show created by Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.
Amazon’s “Making the Cut” has found its new designer cast.
The fashion competition show, which was created by former “Project Runway” stars Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, has revealed the 10 fashion designers who will be competing in the show’s second season that debuts July 16 on Amazon Prime Video. Each week two episodes will air until the finale on Aug. 6.
Amazon revealed in March that the reality show would be coming back for a second season with the addition of two new judges: Moschino fashion designer Jeremy Scott and model Winnie Harlow. The season will also include several guest judges, including fashion designer Prabal Gurung and fashion stylist Shiona Turini.
The show is bringing together a group of fashion designers from across the world, including the U.S., Colombia, India, England, France and Poland.
“Heidi and I are so excited to introduce the world to these 10 talented designers that come from different places and backgrounds, each with their own unique styles and creative sensibilities,” Gunn said in a statement. “Season two is fabulous and a testament to ‘making it work’ on so many levels. We filmed this season in one location — Los Angeles — during the pandemic, while watching these designers challenge themselves to grow their brands and become the next household name in fashion.”
Like the show’s first season, each episode’s winning looks will be available to purchase through Amazon Fashion’s “Making the Cut” store. The season two winner will receive prizes that include selling their designs through Amazon’s fashion platform, mentorship from Amazon Fashion’s executives and $1 million.
