NEW YORK - July 27, 2009 - Today, Bravo unveiled the contestants who will be paired together to compete in the new fashion creative competition series, "Launch My Line" premiering on Bravo on Wednesday, September 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Acclaimed designers, twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2 serve as the series hosts, and fashion notables Stefani Greenfield and Lisa Kline are series judges.

The series features ten well known professionals who are highly regarded in their own field of expertise, but have always dreamed of having their own clothing line. These professionals will be paired with ten established fashion designers who will help them execute their dream clothing line. The ten pairs will be put to the test, as they have to rely on each other's expertise to produce a cohesive fashion line. Some teams form a natural connection while others have instant tension, but at the end of every episode a complete look from each team must walk the runway and be judged in front of a live studio audience. In the end, the winning professional will have their clothing line launched and their expert designer, who helped them along way, will receive $50,000.For a sneak peak at the premiere, go to http://www.bravotv.com/launch-my-line/videos/welcome-to-launch-my-line.
