The revival of Queer Eye has made us laugh, cry and on occasion adopt a French tuck. But when you’ve binge-watched your way through the latest series, where is the next fashion fix going to come from? From one of the show’s presenters actually.

This week Tan France, who is the fashion expert for the series, is now teaming up with TV presenter and fashion designer Alexa Chung to host a new fashion competition called Next in Fashion for Netflix.

It will the streaming service’s first reality show about the fashion world, and is aiming to differentiate itself from other such shows by selecting as contestants fashion designers already working within the industry.

The prize is a life-changing one – $250,000 and the chance to sell their debut collection on luxury fashion e-tailer Net-a-Porter.

18 hopefuls will be selected to take part, all of whom already are established in the business and want to take the next step to launch their own line.

Some of the judges have been announced as well on the Instagram feed, with both celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart and the platform’s Eva Chen on board to help with the selection process.

In fact, Chen posted a shot from the set just yesterday. France can be seen rocking an all grey ensemble, while Chung goes bold with a polka dot/floral clash.

The rest of the Queer Eye crew are also on board to attend the filming as audience members, showing that they all support their friend as he steps into a new pair of presenting shoes.
