June Ambrose Heads to VH1 For The June Ambrose Project
VH1 is teaming up with the reigning queen of celebrity style, June Ambrose. Known as much more than simply a stylist, June has been styling and designing wardrobe for some of the biggest names in pop culture for over two decades. Throughout June's career celebrities such as The Dave Matthews Band, Sean Combs, Alicia Keys, Kelly Ripa, Kim Cattrall, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige and countless others have all sought June's expert advice. "The June Ambrose Project" (Working Title), a half-hour docu-series, is scheduled to premiere in early 2012.
In "The June Ambrose Project," June and her team of tireless assistants will take on a mix of up-and-coming and established celebrity clients - some actors, some musicians - who would like to re-imagine their looks and brands. Each episode will chronicle an image makeover and overall rebranding, culminating in a visually stunning event designed to focus on the celebrity's new look.
In addition to makeovers, viewers will get to see how June juggles her family life, CEO of her celebrity styling house Mode Squad and her burgeoning empire. Adding to June's to-do list is a record label, books and a plethora of assignments ranging from celebrity clients, fashion shows and photo shoots to emergency style interventions for friends she can never turn down.
"We at VH1 are so thrilled to dive into the fashion world with none other than the industry's top styling icon, June Ambrose," said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production VH1. "June is a true original and a creative force of nature who will offer our viewers an exclusive peek behind the curtain into her world of celeb fashion and branding."
VH1's "The June Ambrose Project" is executive produced by Michael Hirschorn, Wendy Roth, Jeff Schmidt and BranDon Wilson for Ish Entertainment. VH1 Executive producers are Shelly Tatro, Brad Abramson, Danielle Gelfand and Jeff Olde.
