Tommy Hilfiger is set to host a new faux Project Runaway reality show on CBS. 16 contestants will compete in New York City to design a collection under his label. Their talent, business acumen, sales and marketing savvy, social skills, resourcefulness, and of course their sense of style will be tested while staying in a SOHO loft. Each week Hilfiger and a clan of guests will form a “Style Council” to judge the designer hopefuls on their progress. Kevin Beggs, President of Programming & Production, Lions Gate Television stated, “The Cut encompasses the worlds of fashion, art, music and entertainment with a phenomenal brand creator like Tommy Hilfiger …” The fashion inspired show sounds to me like a fake Fendi handbag trying to pass for the real thing. See for yourself when The Cut premieres on June 9th, 2005.
