The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection (originally styled as The Fashion Show) is an American reality television series on the Bravo network which focused on fashion design and featured as hosts fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and supermodel Iman. The contestants competed against each other to create the best clothes and are usually restricted in time, materials, and theme, with the resulting designs judged and one or more designers eliminated each week.[1] The show was originally co-hosted by singer Kelly Rowland, however, she was replaced by Iman in Season 2.[2]

It replaced Bravo's first fashion-competition TV show Project Runway, following its move, accompanied by no small amount of controversy, to Lifetime. Internationally the show was broadcast on Dutch television RTL 5[3] and will be broadcast on British Pay-TV channel Really.[4] Bravo made no move to renew the show after the second season ended 25 January 2011.

Format[edit]

Season One[edit]

Season One featured Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi as hosts. The hosts were also judges and were joined by Fern Mallis and Laura Brown in the judging panel.

Fifteen designers competed to win $125,000 and have their fashions sold in retail. America chose the winner as these designers were presented with challenges that tested their skill.[5]

Season Two[edit]

New host Iman (who had previously hosted the Canadian edition of Project Runway), returning host Isaac Mizrahi (who would go on to judge Project Runway's All-Star season), and returning judge Laura Brown of Harper's Bazaar gathered together as the second season introduced a new format. The contestants were split up into two fashion "houses." Each fashion house was expected to assemble a cohesive fashion show for each episode, from the ground up, including everything from the lighting, music, the set, and of course the fashions.

Simply called The Fashion Show during the show's first season,[6] the second season restyled the title to The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection.

Season 2 premiered on November 9 at 10pm/9pm Central, and featured 12 designers competing to create the ultimate collection as well as the chance to win $125,000 provided by TRESemme Professional Hair Care.[7]

In one episode, Calvin Tran declared about having to work with other contestants, "Oh, here go hell come!" It became widely ridiculed on The Soup.
