The newest fashion competition is coming to television this fall, promising to bring fast fashion and flying hemlines to our television sets. STITCHED, the new original series from Corus Entertainment, fuses jaw-dropping creations and big personalities from the world of North American fashion.
Hosted by Canadian fashion model Kim Cloutier, the series boasts an esteemed panel of resident judges including style expert Joe Zee and ELLE Canada’s Editor-in-Chief, Vanessa Craft.
From talented designers across North America and wicked critiques from our incomparable panel of judges to stunning high fashion creations, STITCHED is fashion-forward competition at its best,
- Lisa Godfrey, Vice President of Original Content, Corus Entertainment.
Introducing a new wave of talented fashion designers, the series matches wits and stitches in an epic fashion throw-down in three rounds. In every high-style-meets-high-stakes episode, four competitors face off in dramatically themed challenges with one designer eliminated each round. Facing the oh-so-sharp resident judges and a new guest judge per episode, designers create ambitious outfits inspired by unique materials and concepts under tight timelines. In the end, the top designer from each episode rises to the top with a couture-level creation that earns them the $10,000 prize.
“STITCHED marks a fabulous new chapter in the world of fashion reality competition and we know that this exciting, original format is going to make waves in Canada and beyond,” said Executive Producer Andrea Gabourie, FORTÉ Entertainment. “We are delighted to partner with Corus on this great series and show that strong, successful domestic formats can stand equal to blockbusters from around the world.”
