Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This semi-original spinoff series mixes some of the intensity of Shark Tank with some the traditional fashion design-themed discussions of Project Runway. But most of the conversations revolve around developing a product that can be successfully branded and sold for a major profit, and the amount of research, time, cash, energy, and perseverance it takes to do it.

Fashionistas may think differently about how fun the fashion world is after watching folks pitch their products, discuss marketing plans, and forecast profit margins. But those seriously interested in pursuing a career in the fashion industry may learn something from Project Runway: Fashion Startup.
