With our burgeoning and dynamic fashion design scene, it was just a matter of time before a local designer landed on a fashion TV show.
Thursday's the night. Tune in and see Raleigh-based commission designer Marie Cordella compete on "24 Hour Catwalk," the fashion competition series on Lifetime. The episode airs at 10:30, after "Project Runway All-Stars."
Hosted by Alexa Chung, the show starts with four designers who compete in a first-cut challenge; two are eliminated, setting up a head-to-head challenge in which the designers much create a themed 3-piece collection. Judges designer Cynthia Rowley, fashion editor Derek Blasberg, publicist James LaForce and Chung choose the winner, who gets 10 grand.
