Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn left Project Runway to create this new reality show, a fashion competition that will stream on Amazon Prime.

Making the Cut’s designers flew from Paris to Tokyo, where designers who won challenges were promptly eliminated by a judging panel that’d changed, though was still frustrating.
Making the Cut lost its nerve and became a more conventional fashion design competition in episodes three and four. Interviews with the challenges’ winners about the two biggest twists so far.
Exit interviews with the Making the Cut’s first two winners, Esther and Ji, whose looks are now for sale on Amazon, and the first two designers who were cut, Jasmine and Martha.

Not much is known yet about the Untitled Fashion Series that the two former Project Runway stars are creating, but there are some interesting details in the application.
