Los Angeles, CA, September 2, 2015 -E! unwraps the inner workings of the glamorous world of fashion as seven determined young women enter the house that icon Diane Von Furstenberg built during season two of "House of DVF." In a fierce competition to become DVF's next Global Brand Ambassador, these aspiring fashionistas will be put to the ultimate test - from styling exacting celebrity clients, to spearheading new designs, to jet setting for fabulous assignments and more - to see if they have what it takes to represent the legendary brand. "House of DVF" premieres on E! on September 13 at 9pm ET/PT, and moves to its regular timeslot of Sundays at 10pm ET/PT on September 20. The series will also premiere internationally on E! in over 160 countries this fall.
"The second season of 'House of DVF' is not only entertaining and informative, but also allows viewers inside my fashion world," says Diane von Furstenberg. "I will also continue to provide empowering messages to a generation of millennial women in order to guide them to becoming the women they want to be."
With exclusive access to the world of Diane von Furstenberg, including runway shows, high profile events across the globe, and revealing looks at the inner workings of this singular brand, "House of DVF" is like no other show on television. Eight high-stakes episodes take viewers on an adventurous and sometimes emotional ride, as this group of driven young women who are each dedicated to their own personal brands, experience the challenges and triumph while being tested for the job of a lifetime.
Along with Diane, season one winner and current DVF Global Brand Ambassador Brittany Hampton returns to help find experienced hopefuls, knowing all too well what the demanding yet fun position entails. Jessica Joffe (DVF's Style Editor) and Stefani Greenfield (DVF's Creative Brand Director) also return to offer their professional guidance and insight. DVF and her team will inspire and empower the women to fulfill their potential, chase their dreams and embrace independence.
The new contenders are put through their paces as they dive into a number of high-stakes challenges across DVF's stylish empire, including individual and team assignments in design, marketing and public relations. Among the exciting and strenuous tasks the ladies must excel in are using their all-access passes at the DVF fall fashion show to create images that show Diane how the brand inspires them; interacting with the public and using their social media savvy to generate buzz - and customers -- for a DVF pop-up sale in Boston and experiencing what it's like to be an American in Paris, where they have the opportunity for their photography to be used in an issue of the esteemed Madame Figaro magazine, which Diane is guest editing. The girls must also pay attention to detail when previewing the latest DVF collection for a brigade of discriminating international press in Paris; and stay on their toes when accompanying Diane to an event to announce the CFDA Fashion Awards nominees back in New York. At the annual DVF Awards at the United Nations, the ladies are challenged to keep their cool with emotions running high as they perform their tasks while navigating a room filled with global dignitaries and celebrities. And in a once-in-a-lifetime moment, one lucky lady's dream comes true when she is invited by Diane to the Met Gala, an event known the world over for its exquisite red carpet fashions, the celebrities who wear them and the designers who make them.
However, it's not all work and no play for the acolytes. As the young women vie for the chance to become Diane's next protégé, they spend time together in New York City where friendships form, foes emerge and drama ensues as the pursuit of excellence buoys some, and takes a toll on others.
"House of DVF" is produced by Electus and Hud:sun Media. Executive producers are Chris Grant, Michael Rourke, Corie Henson, Lenid Rolov and Diane von Furstenberg.
