THE COLLECTIVE IS A NEW SHOW ABOUT STAGING MULTI-CITY FASHION WEEKS WITH A SELECT GROUP OF CELEBRITY DESIGNERS FROM THE BIGGEST FASHION REALITY SHOWS.
The show is co executive produced by model icon and #1 Recording Artist Shaun Ross who also serves as the music director.
This first-of-its-kind show has fashion designers from the most popular reality tv fashion shows coming together to showcase their designs and meet fans via live events (which can be lived streamed across the globe).
The initial episode is about the designers emerging out of the isolation of 2020, and how The Collective provides them an opportunity to reactivate with their fans and audiences and engage a new community with a fun and exciting fashion week in Cincinnati; additional episodes follow the designer group to other locations in the US.
The designer’s journeys will begin at their studios through video diaries that showcase behind the scenes how the pandemic has affected their day to day work and artistic visions. There will be challenges and struggles to find their creative voice as they plan to showcase a brand new collection to the world as part of The Collective.
Along with the designer’s collections viewers will see the drama filled, fast paced environment of staging a high energy fashion show.
The Collective will also follow the journey of local models who have been paired with the designers, as the projects gives them opportunities for their burgeoning careers and get exposure to the fashion world and the market at large.
The Collective is not a competition show, so there are no judges, however each celebrity designer will be competing in a fan favorite custom design look for a cash prize. There will also be a cash prize for a fan favorite model.
This groundbreaking hybrid show will include fashion shows, the Official Launch Party, Model Fittings, Designer Q & A Sessions, Designer Marketplace (designers will sell their clothing live and online) and an Official Wrap Party.
There will also be spots made available in each fashion show and the marketplace to small businesses and labels that have struggled during the pandemic by creating a platform for them to show their goods and services to a big audience to help generate sales. A rising tide lifts all ships is a cornerstone for the show.
