FashionTelevisionChannel acquires cutting-edge series, A Model Life

High fashion and high drama make their mark as FashionTelevisionChannel (FTC) welcomes two new series to its runway roster.

First on the scene is new series A MODEL LIFE, premiering Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET beginning May 24 on FTC.

The series examines the interwoven lives of eight young, gorgeous and glam models hand-picked as the collective muse of iconic fashion photographer, Perou.

Then, from Canadian arts and culture magazine, VICE, comes FASHION WEEK INTERNATIONALE, premiering Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET beginning May 26 on FTC.

This fascinating series follows host and fashion reporter Charlet Duboc as she goes behind the scenes of extraordinary “off-the-grid” fashion shows outside the usual catwalk realms of New York, London, Paris and Milan (please visit fashiontelevision.com to confirm local broadcast times).

In the premiere episode of A MODEL LIFE (Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET beginning May 24 on FTC), eight professional models from around the globe are hand-picked by iconic fashion photographer, Perou, whose passion is to produce a bold series of portraits featuring the world of the working model.

His first assignment for the models is a racy lingerie shoot that takes the girls to the streets of central London to bare it all. There are mixed reactions to this shoot, especially from model Jay who suffers from serious body issues and model Ariella who is very clear on what she will and won’t wear. The result is a high octane cocktail of fun, drama, sex and fashion as the camera follows the models in front of and behind the camera lens.

In FASHION WEEK INTERNATIONALE (Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET beginning, May 26 on FTC), host Charlet Duboc goes behind the scenes of fashion weeks from all over the world, navigating the catwalks from unlikely places such as Nigeria, Cambodia and Colombia. In the premiere episode, Duboc travels to Islamabad for Pakistan’s second ever fashion week. Despite the constant threat of extremist violence, she discovers a thriving and fabulous fashion industry lead by the irrepressible style guru of Pakistan, Tariq Amin.
