Hong Kong, March 1, 2013 – Talented emerging fashion designers from around the world gather with one goal in mind: to be crowned the new fashion prodigy and win the title of ‘Design Genius’. The fashion-packed competition series pits three designers against each other competing for recognition and the chance to win $25,000. Outrageous fashion designer-turned-reality star, Indashio, hosts and judges the series. Student designer Bianca Bernardo from SLIMS Fashion and Arts School in Manila,  Philippines is one of the contestants.

In each episode, three designers are surprised with three unconventional materials and one inspirational element. They must create an accessory, undergarment, and wardrobe using only the items provided. “It’s amazing to watch these designers create high fashion garments out of bicycles, beach balls and first-aid kits, and then bring these individual pieces together to create an overall vision,” explains New York City’s famed Indashio. “It’s about making the unimaginable fashionable… It’s design or die!” With crippling time constraints, obscure materials and unpredictable inspirations, designers will battle it out and find their design skills pushed to the limit.

Each designer will have to be flexible, inventive, creative, and display a unique talent for designing with unconventional materials. In the end, there can be only one Design Genius! “Making a necklace out of plastic cutlery was my favorite challenge! This piece was a result of crude enjoyment and creativity,” Bianca added.
“It’s all about creativity in design and material use. The contestants in this fashion-packed competition series are given the extreme inspirational and obscure elements to construct with. Viewers can expect amazing drama and design from these different contestants from all over the world.” remarked Ashley Jordan, CEO of Fashion One.
