Alum Jasmine Chong (BFA 2012) will be among the 12 designers to compete in Making the Cut, Amazon's new fashion competition show. The show reunites Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn of Project Runway, and offers the winner a prize of $1 million and the opportunity to create an exclusive line for Amazon Fashion.
Originally from Malaysia, Chong is a New York-based designer who currently runs her own label. Her line of romantic ready-to-wear pieces is designed for women of all body types. “Look at the women around us that we love and respect – they are beautiful in such different ways. The influence of fashion on beauty ideals is tremendous, especially for younger girls,” Chong says.
The show will premiere on Amazon Prime on March 27.
