Over the 13 episodes, audience will be exposed to Asian ingenuity at its best and discover the high calibre of work and innate passion that builds and sustains the industry.

The show will be shot mostly in Singapore, and just like the US format, it will feature at least one other fashion capital.

The judging panel and brand partners will be announced within the next few weeks.
