According to the industry website, MTV is “getting into the fashion-competition space with a new project from ‘The Real World’ producers Bunim-Murray. The network is set to announce a series order for ‘The Stylist’ on Tuesday during its upfront presentation to advertisers. On the show, a group of fashion stylists — design-savvy professionals who assemble clothes and accessories for celebrities and models — compete for a contract with a major agency. ‘The Stylist’ marks a slight departure for the network. MTV has aired occupation-based competition series, including ‘Miss Seventeen,’ but ‘Stylist’s’ format also would be at home on such networks as Bravo, TLC and the CW. The number of episodes and ‘Stylist’ premiere date are not known.”
