6 Fashion Lessons We Learned From The Judges On ‘Making The Cut’


If you’re looking for your next binge-watch (and aren’t we all?), add Amazon Prime’s show, Making the Cut to the list. It premiered at the end of March, and the entire first season is now available to stream. If you’re a fan of fashion-competition shows dotted with occasional drama and snarky comments, you’ll whip through the 10 episodes.

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn host the show, which follows 12 designers competing for the chance to take their established labels global—each episode’s winning look was available for purchase on Amazon immediately after the show (and sold out quickly)! The final winner won a million dollars to invest in their brand, plus an opportunity to create an exclusive collection that’s available on Amazon now.

The designers are all likable enough, but the most entertaining parts of the show are the judges’ critiques—Heidi, Nicole Richie, designer Joseph Altuzarra, editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book Carine Roitfeld, Naomi Campbell, and super-influencer Chiara Ferragni offer commentary during the fashion shows as each look comes down the runway.

Then, at the end of each episode, they call on the contestants individually to shower them with high praise or give the nervous designers an opportunity to defend their brand in hopes of (drum roll) making the cut for that week.
