I think if you trust your kids with the language it's a really good show. There are some 'bad' words. They do celebrate with wine sometimes, but nothing crazy in my opinion. I think if you like fashion or your kids, watch on Netflix. There is a bit of consumerism, gaining money and selling earning money.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This lighthearted series showcases talented and internationally diverse up-and-coming designers hoping to build their brands and become big names in the fashion industry. While the show's concept is similar to that of Project Runway, the focus is on highlighting how the contestants' work can potentially set design trends instead of focusing on any drama between them. Rather than receiving feedback during lengthy critique sessions while center stage, judges meet with the individual contestants to offer constructive feedback meant to help them push their designs forward.

Meanwhile, the workroom is big and sleek, the materials contestants work with are spectacular, and the runway shows offer colorful high-tech flair. Adding to the fray are the hosts, who take some time to offer the viewing audience lots of fashion tips. Granted, Next In Fashion features plenty of celebrity name dropping, some obvious marketing devices, and other typical reality television devices. But it still manages to feel fresh and fun, and offers fashion-loving audiences a worthy viewing experience.
