Bravo Lets America Vote for Final Contestant on New Series 'The Fashion Show'
The newcomer, due later this year, follows "professional designers as they strive to make their mark in the dog-eat-dog world of fashion."

[via press release from Bravo]


Viewers Can Vote On BravoTV.com Starting Today

NEW YORK � February 4, 2009 � Bravo's newest creative competition series, "The Fashion Show," is looking to cast its final contestant and is putting the designer's fate in the hands of America. Beginning today on www.BravoTV.com/thefashionshow, viewers can vote for one final designer to join the competition � voting closes on February 13. "The Fashion Show" will follow professional designers as they strive to make their mark in the dog-eat-dog world of fashion and compete for a chance to have their designs sold for the mass retail market.

The two designers up for public vote are:

Andrew, 35 � Resides in: Los Angeles, Calif.

Known as the "Panty-Christ," Andrew has already conquered the world of designer underwear. He started his own brand, "Andrew Christian," in 1997 and his urban inspired collections are sold in upscale stores throughout the country, including Kitson, Patricia Fields and Fred Segal. A self-described perfectionist and "gaylebrity," Andrew has been known to throw an entire rack of samples across the room if it's not up to his standard. "Don't be caught off guard by my cute smile, I'm a bitch." While his underwear line has garnered worldwide attention, Andrew's goal is to take on the world of women's fashion. He says his inspiration comes from everyday life, the modern art movement and necessity, and loves creating deigns that flatter the female body and make women feel good about themselves. He has an insatiable work ethic and hopes to one day have a retrospective of his works at the MET.

Elise, 24 � Resides in: Chicago, Ill.

Elise is a designer with determination and a flair for business. She is creative, talented and hard-working, and in a competition setting, she loves to wins. Taught to sew by her mother and grandmothers, Elise is the owner of her eponymous label "Elise Bergman." While she currently resides in Chicago, Elise has spent the last two winters living in the mountains of Montana. She draws her inspiration equally from the rugged outdoors and the fast-paced, sophisticated urban streets. She designs with both city girls and country girls in mind, pairing luxurious silks with organic cottons and other natural materials to create a part hippie, part high-fashion collection. Before starting her business, Elise took time off to care for her mother who was diagnosed with brain cancer. Her mother's wish was for her children to "do something great with their lives." Though her mother is no longer with her, Elise uses this as her inspiration. She takes every challenge head on and is excited to see where the future takes her.

"The Fashion Show" is produced by 3 Ball Productions ("The Biggest Loser," "Beauty and the Geek") and will air on Bravo later this year.
