Meet the Designers Competing on The Fashion Show
Roll out the runway -- Bravo will premiere its latest foray into fashion reality TV, launching its aptly titled The Fashion Show on May 7 (10 p.m, ET) with a fleet of 15 designers from around the globe. Hosted by Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi, the new show will give the creative hopefuls the chance to sell their designs and win $125,000. Also joining the hosts on the judging panel: Fern Mallis, the senior vice president of IMG Fashion, and a familiar face for Project Runway viewers.

In a twist, The Fashion Show will allow viewers to participate and pick the winning designer among the finalists. Each week the contestants will be given two challenges, one that will be judged by Harpers Bazaar special projects director Laura Brown, and one elimination challenge.

Curious about who will be feverishly sewing this season? Bravo has posted a video of the 15 designers colorfully introducing themselves, followed by additional videos featuring the The Fashion Show judges. Keep reading to watch the clips.

While it may be too early to judge their technical abilities, these contestants' stylish duds … - and bios -- hint at some fireworks to come. Who can resist Merlin's self-styled equestrian-meets-wetsuit look? Or Andrew, the self-professed "gaylebrity," who says in his official bio, "Don't be caught off guard by my cute smile, I'm a b----!" -- Brian Orloff
