Everything You Need to Know About Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn’s New Show Making the Cut
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are back, and Project Runway fans are going to love their new gig!
Amazon Prime’s new Making the Cut series — the first-ever instantly shoppable show in history — will premiere this Friday, March 27. The competition reality show, which is hosted by Klum and Gunn, puts 12 designers to the test as the series’ five judges (Naomi Campbell, Nicole Richie, Chiara Ferragni, Carine Roitfeld, and Joseph Altuzarra) search for the next global fashion brand.
The streaming platform will drop two episodes every Friday, showcasing designs that will be available to shop on Amazon that same day. Throughout the season, you’ll see the designers and entrepreneurs travel to New York, Paris, and Tokyo, where they’ll craft looks to prove they have what it takes to run a successful fashion empire. The winner will be announced during the finale on Friday, April 24 and will receive a $1 million prize.
Unlike other reality competition shows, Making the Cut will travel the globe over its five-week run, and feature contestants from around the world. Designers hail from across the U.S. as well as Shanghai, Berlin, and Milan.
With not one, but two new episodes premiering every week, it’s the perfect new series to stream while social distancing. In fact, co-host Tim Gunn believes it’s a wonderful pick-me-up for those cooped up at home.
“I think that Making the Cut is a much-needed antidote to everything that we’re going through,” Tim Gunn told Variety. “It’s feel-good television. People want to be inspired; they want a distraction. They’re not going to see designers squabbling; they’re going to see designers helping each other. It’s going to be uplifting for people.”
