The contestants have a chance to win the multi-million dollar prize by launching their collections in three of America’s largest retailers: Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue.

The new series, hosted and executive-produced by Elle Macpherson, and featuring celebrity mentors Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos will premiere on Tuesday, March 13.

Women’s wear designer Vian Hunter, 47, is a mother of two and lover of all things vintage.  Hunter says that women are desperate for gorgeous, affordable clothing made in the United States and that’s exactly what she intends to give them.
