“The start of one designer’s rise to stardom!” -San Francisco Chronicle

Fusing the intensity of a rap battle with the glamour of high fashion, House of Diehl’s STYLE BATTLING™ is a fresh new fashion competition that pits designers head-to-head to cut, slash, twist and tape, creating fashion LIVE in 5-minute knock-out rounds.

With 15 shows worldwide, Style Wars has jumpstarted the careers of young designers with the guts and the talent. Can you make new looks from recycled clothing and household objects? Can you cook a look faster than Pat Field on PCP? Are you a take-no-prisoners talent? Then, this is the competition for you!

It’s DESIGN OR DIE as the crowd and a panel of celebrity judges decide who stays in the game, and who bites the dust. The battle selection committee includes designer Claw Money, celebrity stylist Rebecca Weinberg, model Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, producer Dallas Austin, and more!

Past judges include Catherine Malandrino, Agent Provocateur’s Joe Corre, and Mick Rock.

Think you have what it takes?
