“You have an opportunity to lead the next big global brand,” Gunn tells the contestants in the trailer. “You have to have an intense fire in your belly. You have to fight.”

During the ten-episode series designers visit three of the world’s fashion capitals – New York, Paris, and Toyko – and face challenges and assignments that put their design skills to the test also their ability to run all aspects of a business.

“We are like proud parents,” says Gunn of his first project with Klum since the pair left Project Runway after 16 seasons last Sept.
