Fashion TV may have gone the way of the legwarmer, but it looks like MTV is throwing their weight behind revitalizing the fading genre of fashion-centric television. That’s right folks, a brand new version of House Of Style, the legendary documentary series that took viewers backstage, on set, and behind the scenes from 1989-2002, is coming soon to a screen near you! And man are we ever excited to see what they come up with.
For those who were too busy with crayons and monkey bars to catch the show the first time around, MTV has posted some choice clips for your viewing pleasure. And when we say choice, we mean CHOICE. Think Cindy Crawford shooting with Helmut Newton in Monte Carlo, Victoria Beckham flexing her early styling muscles at the mall back when she was still known as Posh Spice, and even a cameo or two from Karl Lagerfeld, pre-weight loss. Peaked your interest yet? We thought so.
MTV has already posted many of the segments online, but believe us when we say there’s plenty more fashion fabulousness where that came from. As for what to expect, the network’s own Mary H.K. Choi reveals that a documentary about the show itself called House of Style: Music, Models and MTV will premiere on August 7th, and in the coming weeks they will be releasing never-before-seen footage (!!!) of interviews with greats like Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, and Gianni Versace.
The new series will film during New York Fashion Week in September, says the Hollywood Reporter, and will premiere October 9th exclusively on MTV Style‘s digital platform, with some crossover content making its way to your television screen. The host of the series (Coco? Karlie?) will be announced September 6th at the MTV Video Music Awards. Ok, now are you hyperventilating? Because we certainly are.
As they say in the trailer for the House Of Style doc:
“Before Facebook, before Instagram, there was House Of Style.”
So let’s all take this opportunity to bow down to the show that cleared the (run)way for our generation! May its second coming be just as fun, fierce, and fabulous as its first.
