OUTtv has commissioned a second season of its hit competition series "Sew Fierce." The new season started production this month and is set to launch on OUTtv in Spring 2024. “I’m so excited to be joining the team at Sew Fierce as Host of Season 2," the show's new co-host, London based drag legend, Crystal, said. "Beyond my status as an international drag artist, I’m also an avid costume maker and Highly Judgemental, so this series was made for me! I cannot wait to see what these talented designers have in their talented brains!”
"Sew Fierce" is an OUTtv original produced by Sonic Nursery. The first season of the hit series launched internationally on the OUTtv platform earlier this year, the first of its kind providing a never before seen look at the craft and design of drag. Each week the designers will create a look based on a theme, and will then complete a photoshoot to showcase their designs modelled by up-and-coming drag artists. The judges evaluate the looks based on the appearance and construction of the garments, eliminating one designer each week.
The eight-episode second season will see design mentor Jaime Lujan, aka Lucinda Miu, return to the show, they will also be joined by a new co-host, the London based drag legend, Crystal. Showcasing the craft of drag, Sew Fierce sees eight drag designers at the top of their field compete in weekly challenges to create new looks, in the hopes of winning a cash prize and a sewing suite from Singer.
“Sew Fierce celebrates the incredible creativity of drag designers, whilst entertaining and educating audiences with the intricacies of the art form and showcasing the remarkable personal journeys the contestants have taken so far," Philip Webb, COO of OUTtv, said. "We were delighted by the reception of the first season and for season two, we can’t wait to welcome Crystal, who we know will bring her unique flair and a fresh perspective for our eight new contestants.”
