Alexa Chung and Tan France’s design competition show Next in Fashion has been axed after one season.

The programme, which debuted on Netflix in January, followed 18 designers from around the world as they competed in challenges based on style and runway trends.

However, France confirmed during an interview with Variety on Thursday that a second series had not been greenlit.

“This is a one-season show, we don’t know what will happen in the future,” he told the publication, hinting that the show may be picked up at another network. “But it was honestly one of the proudest things I’ve ever worked on. I love the show and Alexa so much. My focus is definitely on Queer Eye and moving forward with that.”

Filmed in May 2019, the show was won by Minju Kim, with the South Korean designer taking home $250,000 (£198,000) and the offer of debuting a collection on Net-a-Porter’s website.

British fashion star Daniel Fletcher was the runner-up, while Angel Chen and Ashton Hirota rounded out the top four.

Produced by Robin Ashbrook, Yasmin Shackleton, and Adam Cooper, guest judges on Next in Fashion included Instagram’s Eva Chen, celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, designers Prabal Gurung and Kerby Jean-Raymond, as well as model Adriana Lima.

Other recent shows to be scrapped by Netflix bosses include Spinning Out, Messiah, and AJ and the Queen.

At present, France is promoting Netflix series Queer Eye, on which he serves as a style expert, with the fifth season of the hit series premiering on Friday.

Meanwhile, TV personality/designer Chung is keeping busy by working on future collections for her namesake fashion label.
