The Fashion Show was a reality television competition that premiered on the Bravo network in May of 2009. The show took place in New York City and was hosted by actress and singer Kelly Rowland. The show featured a panel of judges that included Fern Mallis, the founder of New York Fashion Week, designer Isaac Mizrahi, and supermodel Iman Abdulmajid.

The competition featured 15 contestants who were split into two teams and tasked with creating a full line of clothing each week. The winner of the challenge was selected by the judges and earned immunity for the following week's challenge. The losing team had to send one member home.

The contestants on the show came from all walks of life, but they were all aspiring fashion designers looking to make it in the highly competitive world of fashion. Throughout the show, they were given challenges that tested their creativity, technical skills, and ability to work under pressure.

Each week, the contestants were given a different theme to work with, and they had to create a collection of clothing that reflected that theme. Some of the themes included "Glamorous Grunge," "Rock Star Style," and "Tennis Chic." The contestants had a limited budget and a limited amount of time to complete their designs, which added to the pressure and drama of the show.

The judges were tough but fair, offering constructive criticism to the contestants and sometimes disagreeing with each other's opinions. Isaac Mizrahi was known for his acid-tongued comments and Iman often brought a unique perspective as a former model and fashion icon.

Kelly Rowland was a supportive host, providing encouragement to the contestants and getting emotionally invested in their successes and failures. She often visited the workshops where the contestants were working and offered advice and feedback on their designs.

In addition to the challenges, the show also included behind-the-scenes footage of the contestants' personal lives and interactions with each other. It was interesting to see how different personalities clashed and collaborated in the high-stress environment of the competition.

Overall, The Fashion Show was a fun and entertaining show that offered a glimpse into the world of fashion design. It was great to see aspiring designers get a chance to showcase their skills and creativity, and the judges offered valuable insights into what it takes to succeed in the fashion industry. The show only lasted two seasons, but it remains a memorable and enjoyable experience for anyone interested in fashion and design.

The Fashion Show is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (22 episodes). The series first aired on May 7, 2009.
