Forget NBC’s Fashion Star – Ovation & Conde Nast Entertainment launch “The Fashion Fund”

Depressed over NBC’s recently cancelled “Fashion Star”? Worry not because Fashion Fund arrives on the Ovation network this December.

Following on the success of the CFDA/Vodgue “Fashion Fund”, an incubator of rising fashion talent, two major forces have combine to create a new television competition show. “The Fashion Fund” premieres this December on the Ovation arts network.

Produced in collaboration between Ovation, Conde Nast Entertainment and Break Thru Films, the show concept has “ten innovative, American-based designers, compete for the top award that carries an incredible $300,000 grant and a one-year mentorship with an industry titan” as described by the producers.

“This is the real deal. There have been a lot of fashion competition series on television, but nothing comes close to matching the authenticity and talent found in ‘The Fashion Fund’,” said Robert Weiss, Ovation’s Chief Creative Officer.

“The Fashion Fund” will premiere in December six episodes.
