The stakes will be high as these budding designers vie for the title of Americas next trendsetting designer.
Rihanna is a trailblazer, a trendsetter and the epitome of style. She has a powerful and unique point-of-view that transcends every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, and is a leading creative force, said Salaam Coleman Smith, President, Style Media. On the heels of our successful network rebrand, Styled to Rock and Styles new partnership with Rihanna will reinvent the fashion competition genre, fueling our viewers insatiable appetite for all things style.
Rihanna is inviting innovative designers who believe that they represent the future of fashion to sign up to be considered for the new competition series at Styles website, StyleNetwork.com/StyledtoRock.
Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career, said Rihanna. I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work.
The series launches with a nationwide search on StyleNetwork.com for cutting-edge designers looking to take their craft to the next level. Rihanna will personally select the 12 designers who will compete for the coveted opportunity to dress some of the biggest names in entertainment. To help the designers reach their ultimate artistic potential, Rihanna will enlist the guidance of top experts from the fashion industry to serve as mentors. Each week, challenges will push the designers to their creative limits when they are tasked with styling an A-list star. Each weeks celebrity guest will determine which designer best achieves their vision and advances to the next week of competition. Faced with the threat of elimination, the remaining designers must meet with the mentors to discuss where they fell short and ultimately who will be sent home. In the end, one designer will be named the winner of Styled to Rock.
