Designer Courtney Smith On Netflix’s Next In Fashion
When Courtney Smith was finally allowed to talk about her participation in Netflix’s Next In Fashion, she was really excited about it. “MAMA LLAMAS!! I am so excited to announce that I am competing in Next in Fashion Season 2! I Cannot wait for you to watch March 3rd on @netflix @nextinfashion. 🍾🍾🍾🍾”, she gushed next to a teaser of the show.
In this clip, we see her telling the cameras about fashion, that she designs for the “plus girls who want to show out every time they go out.”
Courtney will be joined by other talented designers and hosts Tan France and Gigi Hadid. And again, all of them will be joined by a lineup of star-studded judges.
In each episode, contestants will be eliminated, naturally leaving just one winning the huge cash prize. If Courtney gets lucky and becomes the winner, she will get to debut her collection on RenttheRunway.com. Of course, she will then also have to take home the hefty 250 thousand dollars prize.
Ahead of the show’s release, elated Courtney took herself to NYC Times Square to catch herself appearing on a billboard. She took a selfie in front of it and then made an IG post and wrote next to it: “🎶 Making my way downtown, walking fast…seeing my face on a billboard…dun dun dun dun dun dun dun🎶”.
Courtney’s designs are a favorite among the plus-size fashion community and have been worn by celebrities including Mary Lambert and Gabourey Sidibe. Her LinkedIn also goes on to tell that her designs are strongly focused on sophistication, mixed with spunk, and able to communicate a strong message of self-empowerment and confidence.
