The Hype has crowned the winner of its very first season!
If you haven’t watched yet and you’re looking for a fashion competition show to binge after finishing Making the Cut, HBO Max’s The Hype is bound to become your next obsession.
The Hype, which premiered on Aug. 12, is a new design competition that focuses on streetwear. Hosted by Complex Media’s Speedy Morman, The Hype has up-and-coming streetwear designers competing in weekly challenges to create innovative, visionary clothes that embrace the fashion, music, art and lifestyle influences of streetwear, while elevating their entrepreneurial prowess.
The contestants are judged by co-signers — rapper and Migos member Offset, celebrity stylist Marni Senofonte (clients include Beyoncé and Kendall Jenner) and creative director Bephie Birkett. The series features special celebrity guests, including Cardi B and Wiz Khalifa, and the challenges are filled with exciting moments from exclusive collaborations to surprises and twists that shake up the competition. The winning look from each challenge is available to shop on StockX, and the final winner of The Hype will win $150,000.
