Alexa Chung's upcoming reality show 24 Hour Catwalk will debut on Lifetime on January 10th, and on it, contestants will have just one day to create a collection. Okay, so it's only a three-piece collection, but still. Lifetime explains:
Hosted by Alexa Chung, each episode gives four talented designers the chance to compete to create their own collection ... in just one day. After a first cut challenge and elimination that will test their innovation and aesthetic, the competition whittles down to two, each tasked with creating a themed collection for their own star-studded runway show.The judges are Cynthia Rowley, Derek Blasberg and James LaForce, and the contestants get a professional sewing team to help out. Apparently, there's one challenge that involves live snakes. People has an exclusive sneak peek; you can check it out here.
