Diane von Furstenberg is set to get into the fashion reality TV game. And while we think it’s safe to say there are waytoo manyfashion reality TV showson the air at this point, von Furstenberg’s new venture sounds a little different.
Instead of trying to find the next big designer or model, von
Furstenberg is looking to fill the all-important role of a “brand
ambassador” in her “transformational docu-series for the millennial
fashionista,” as described by a casting flyer that landed in our inbox
Indeed, a “brand ambassador” is certainly a millennial career. And
one that, we’ll admit, we have no idea how to get, unless you’re already
a celebrity or an It Girl. Here’s what the show is looking for: They’ve
put out a call for “all smart and driven fashionistas who appear to be
20-25 and are interested in learning the ins and outs of the fashion
industry from one of America’s most legendary fashion icons.” Nope, you
don’t have to actually be 20-25. You just have to look like you are.
Details are scarce at this point, but the casting producer told us
the show, which is currently being referred to as the “DVF DocuSeries,”
will air on a “major cable network.” It’s being produced by Electus, the
same company that does Fashion Star and Mob Wives.
They plan to shoot for 6 to 8 weeks in the spring of next year.
Contestants on the show will be “trained as brand ambassadors” and
compensated. Applicants must be interested in fashion, but there are no
requirements in terms of education or work experience.
Like all reality TV shows, this could turn out really good — see Kell On Earth and Project Runway in the beginning — or really bad, like Fashion Star was…always. We love von Furstenberg, and are hoping for the best. Plus, we just genuinely want to know what a brand ambassador does.
Interested in the gig? See the flyer below for details on how to apply.
