The show premiered on Lifetime in 2016 and ran for one season. The show is hosted by Ryan Zamo, who is a fashion industry expert and mentor to the contestants. He is joined by two other prominent fashion industry figures, designer Rebecca Minkoff and beauty entrepreneur Katia Beauchamp. Together, they provide guidance and advice to the contestants as they attempt to turn their fashion ideas into successful businesses.

Each episode of the show features a group of aspiring fashion entrepreneurs who are given the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to the panel of judges. The entrepreneurs are required to present a prototype of their product, as well as a business plan outlining their strategy for growth and profitability.

After the initial pitches, the judges select a group of finalists who move on to the next round. In the following episodes, the finalists are put through a series of challenges designed to test their creativity, business acumen, and ability to execute their vision.

The challenges range from designing a brand identity and logo, to creating a runway show to showcase their products. The contestants are given a limited amount of time and resources to complete these challenges, and are judged by a panel of industry experts who evaluate their work based on creativity, innovation, and commercial viability.

Throughout the competition, the contestants receive feedback and guidance from the judges, who offer insights into the business aspects of the fashion industry. They provide advice on everything from how to market and promote products to how to secure funding and grow a business.

As the competition progresses, the field is narrowed down to the final few contestants, who must face one last challenge before the winner is selected. The final challenge is often the most difficult and high-pressure of all, and requires the contestants to showcase their vision and abilities on a grand scale.

In the end, one contestant is selected as the winner and receives a substantial investment to help launch their business. The other finalists also receive a range of prizes and opportunities, and all of the contestants walk away with valuable experience and knowledge that can help them in their future endeavors.
