Calling All Designers: Joe Zee’s Sundance Series “All On The Line” Utilizes AFINGO.com
AFINGO.com is acting as a preliminary recruiter for the second season of Sundance Channel’s hit show “All On The Line” with celebrity stylist and ELLE Creative Director Joe Zee.
The producers are looking to the AFINGO community, full-to-bursting with design talent, to populate the successful show’s line up for their next season. Utilizing their extensive online community, AFINGO is reaching out via social and electronic media to let their members know about the opportunity. Their on-staff experts will be pre-vetting the potential candidates, passing along to the show’s producers only those that the AFINGO team considers to be the best fit for the show.
AFINGO’s Co-Founder and CEO, Liza Deyrmenjian, appeared on Season One of the show as a production and business expert. She was called in to help designer Dana Maxx modify her designs in order to reach a price print more palatable for her target market. Says Joe Zee, “Liza’s considerable wisdom and no-nonsense delivery helped Dana wake up to the reality of how to successfully run her business.”
“All On The Line” is looking for talented and creditable New York based apparel designers (womenswear, menswear, and any other clothing) who have had success in the past but have fallen on hard times and need a second chance to keep their dream alive. Joe Zee will work one-on-one with each designer and their team and use his market savvy, positive spirit, and a little tough love, to get their businesses back on track. The show is NOT a competition show, and is focused on already established designers.
New York based designers who think they have what it takes to work with Joe Zee and value the opportunity to successfully transform their business should become members of AFINGO.com in order to be considered and email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the opportunity. AFINGO will promptly reply with next steps.
“This is just one of the special industry opportunities to which AFINGO members have access, says Deyrmenjian. “We look to provide our community with unique platforms for success.”
