Miguel has made a pronounced mark on music and is continuing to expand his footprint outside of it.
The latest chapter of the latter sees the GRAMMY winner team with the BBC.
Full story below…
Brought to screens by way of BBC Three and award-winning production company Renowned Films, the eight part series is a new competitive format that captures the cultural synergy between fashion, music, sport, celebrity and business and aims provide one individual with a life-changing opportunity.
And what is that opportunity, one may wonder?
Positively disruptive creatives, who all believe they are sitting on the next big streetwear brand, will compete to win the chance to have their first line stocked in a major UK retailer.
Miguel, who is celebrated in earnest for his eclectic style and fashion influence has been confirmed as the first lead mentor and judge.
Additional information, such as host and more, will be shared in time.
Renowned Films co-founder Max Welch, Duane Jones and Tim Withers commented:
“The Drop should find the UK’s next big global streetwear brand. Renowned is thrilled to be working with the BBC on the format, a really exciting way of exploring business through the billion pound industry of streetwear. Miguel was our very first choice to be a judge, mentor, and creative partner for this show. Miguel’s certainly a style expert and tastemaker, but also a highly respected global musical, performance, and visual artist, so we know our entire cast, crew, and design competitors will respond strongly to him.”
“I really hadn’t ever contemplated doing something like this, but when I met the Renowned team and discovered their works I was immediately excited to get involved both on air and behind the scenes as a co-producer. I also love that this show will be UK-centric, as there are so many talented designers based in the territory who deserve recognition”.
Fiona Campbell, Controller BBC Three concluded:
“At BBC Three, we love opportunities where we can provide a platform for people to express their creativity and passions. The Drop promises to be a fresh, new competitive format that delves into the business of streetwear and we’re really looking forward to seeing what the creatives come up with.”
We’ll be tuned in. Will you?
