Who has the passion for hosting, and knowledge in fashion? Who has what it takes to be London's Fashion One Correspondent?
LONDON, UK - Fashion One, a global television network, is set to launch a six-episode original series, entitled Fashion Correspondent Search: London.
The new television series seeks to find the on-the-ground fashion savvy personality that will host fashion and lifestyle events in their hometown of London for the network. With numerous casting hopefuls, only nine qualify for a chance to compete and become Fashion One's London correspondent.
“We are heading to the fashion capitals of the world in search of the perfect fashion correspondent to represent the network, and this year we set our eye on London with the launch of the channel in the United Kingdom. London is a city bustling with world-class events in fashion, entertainment and music everyday. The Fashion One Correspondent winner will have the ability to interview high-end designers and names in the fashion and entertainment world, delivering top quality reports to audiences in the UK and worldwide,” said Ashley Jordan, CEO of Fashion One.

A fashion correspondent is not just a pretty face - it's someone who can get exclusive access to the latest events, hottest talent, and deliver the story with personality, confidence and flare.
Fashion One Correspondent Search: London will be presented by Antonia O’Brien, who will introduce nine talented and exciting candidates as they partake in various tasks and challenges with the goal of becoming Fashion One’s next London correspondent.
"The girls are a great representation of what makes London so fantastically unique; they're a great mix of the fashion-forward, the chic, the retro and the romantic. This series is in the fashion capital of the world - where else could be better?" commented Antonia O'Brien.
Antonia will be joined by Norwegian designer Fam Irvoll and fashion creative Nik Thakkar.
