Netflix has cancelled its fashion competition series Next in Fashion, hosted by Tan France and Alexa Chung, after just a single season. The show, which was Netflix's answer to Project Runway aired in January of this year and saw 18 fashion designers coming together to compete for $250,000 prize money and a debut collection with luxury fashion retailer Net-a-Porter.
The show's competitors were all accomplished designers, many of whom had previously worked for a-list celebrities and huge fashion brands such as Alexander Wang and Stella McCartney. In the dramatic finale earlier this year, South Korean designer Minju Kim beat out fellow competitor Daniel Fletcher for the series one win, with her Frida Kahlo inspired collection.
Speaking to Variety on Thursday night, Tan France said, "we’re not doing a second a season," but he did speculate about the future of the show, saying, "This is a one-season show, we don’t know what will happen in the future, but it was honestly one of the proudest things I’ve ever worked on. I love the show and Alexa so much," he continued. "My focus is definitely on Queer Eye and moving forward with that."
Season 5 of Queer Eye lands on Netflix today, hosted by Tan and the rest of the Fab Five; Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown and Bobby Berk. The show has seen huge success so it's no huge surprise that that's where Tan will be directing his focus.
