BRAVO'S "THE FASHION SHOW" UNSPOOLS NEW HOSTS AND JUDGES

Internationally Acclaimed Fashion Designer Isaac Mizrahi Named Host

Grammy Award-Winning Performer and Actress Kelly Rowland Joins As Co-Host

Fashion Luminary Fern Mallis Serves As Judge

NEW YORK - February 19, 2009 - Some of the most respected names in the fashion industry join the panel of Bravo's newest creative competition series, "The Fashion Show." Internationally acclaimed designer Isaac Mizrahi shares hosting duties with four-time Grammy Award-winning performer and actress Kelly Rowland. Mizrahi and Rowland will also serve as judges alongside fashion luminary and Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion, Fern Mallis. The competition series is produced by 3 Ball Productions and, as previously announced, will air on Bravo later this year.

"The Fashion Show" follows 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 designers will face off in challenges and have their fate determined not only by the professional judges, but also by a studio audience. In the end, the winner will have their designs available for sale by a major retail outlet.

Mizrahi is the Creative Director for the Liz Claiborne brand, where he oversees design and marketing for the women's apparel and accessories line. As a leader in the design business for almost twenty years, Mizrahi has been awarded four CFDA awards, including a special award in 1996 for the groundbreaking documentary "Unzipped." Mizrahi's women's collection is available both domestically and internationally and can be seen in fashion magazines around the globe and his menswear collection expanded its distribution in fall 2008. In 2003, Mizrahi revolutionized the industry by teaming with Target to launch a collection of chic and stylish clothing and accessories for women. In addition, he oversees various licenses including shoes and home furnishing fabrics. Mizrahi has created costumes for movies, theater, dance and opera in collaboration with Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp, Mikhail Baryshnikov and The Roundabout Theatre Company among others. In 2002 Isaac received the Drama Desk Award for his costume designs for The Women. Most recently, he made his costume design debut at the New York Metropolitan Opera with Orfeo ed Euridice. In addition to his designs, Mizrahi also wrote a series of comic books entitled "The Adventures of Sandee the Supermodel" and won rave reviews for his one-man, off-Broadway show Les Mizrahi. Mizrahi is currently shooting his new web show, which can be seen at www.watchisaac.com, and writing his first book "How to Have Style."

Judge and co-host Kelly Rowland is a best-selling Grammy-winning solo artist and a founding member of Destiny's Child, the top-selling female recording group of all-time. Rowland proved a major contributing force to the group's record-breaking global popularity as they racked up sales of more than 100 million records worldwide while earning three Grammy Awards. She successfully debuted as a solo artist in 2002 with the album "Simply Deep," which sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide and included the hit single "Dilemma." The duet, with rapper Nelly, earned the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002 and spent 10 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100. Her follow-up album, "Ms. Kelly," was released in 2007. Rowland has appeared in a number of television and film projects including the features "Freddy vs. Jason," and "The Seat Filler," executive produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, and the television series "The Hughleys" and "American Dreams." She also served as a choir leader on NBC's creative competition series "Clash of the Choirs."

Series judge, Fern Mallis is the Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion. She is widely credited as the creator of New York "Fashion Week.". Organized in 1993, under the auspices of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), where she served as Executive Director for 10 years. 7th on Sixth, as it was originally named, was created to organize, centralize and modernize the runway collections. 7th on Sixth provided a platform for American designers to become competitive players within the global fashion community.
