ICYMI: NEXT IN FASHION IS NEXT ON QUEUE

What a year it’s been. Instead of going out to bars and waking up in strange places with a hazy memory of where we lost our cell phone, we’re stuck at home watching TV in sweatpants trying to remember where the TV remote is. If these walls could talk, they wouldn’t be saying much.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ve still figured out how to have fun at home. With the rise of streaming sensations like “Tiger King” and “Bridgerton,” Netflix and chill has a whole new meaning. However, there are a few shows that we may have glanced over in the mass media madness of it all, and “Next in Fashion” is just the show to catch up on right now.

It’s like “Project Runway” you can binge in a day – “Next in Fashion” condenses years’ worth of talent and suspense into ten fifty-minute episodes. Co-hosted by Tan France of “Queer Eye” fame and fashion icon and entrepreneur Alexa Chung, this series subjects eighteen gifted creators to a whole host of elaborate challenges and themes revolving around who can consistently create the best runway looks on short notice. Whoever remains standing at the end is awarded $250,000 and a chance to create their own collection at Net-a-Porter, but stakes are high and the competition is fierce.

Everyone on the show has what it takes to make it into the “Next in Fashion” warehouse, but they also have to prove how well they can work in pairs. Each player is randomly assigned a two-person team at the start of the series, so it would be safe to assume that conflicting visions would get in the way of their success. However, to see everyone come together and simply have a good time amidst the chaos of the ticking clock that seals their fate is a refreshing aspect to this competition that is rarely seen in most of these types of shows.

Similarly, what really sets this show apart from its counterparts is its contestants. Each of these eighteen game changers not only has their own unique creative vision, but they each come from different walks of life and play key roles in the fashion industry as a whole. “Next in Fashion” brings in designers from all around the world who have worked everywhere from streetwear to couture, so there is something here for everybody. Whether they have been a part of some of the world’s most well-known brands or have started their own, each player’s trained perspective and appreciation for their own culture is shown through their designs and makes them all winners in their own right.

Whether or not you’re into designer clothing, “Next in Fashion” is a fun way to take your mind off of the pandemic without getting too attached to your TV. It also serves as a reminder that just as it was safe enough to be indoors with more than ten people when it premiered last January, it will soon be safe to do so again. You never know what will be next in fashion or next in life.
