Amazon Original Series Review: Making The Cut

Tim and Heidi are reunited! If you are a fan of Project Runway then you have noticed their absence from the show and have missed the presence of Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum the Project Runway OG's. The duo have reunited in the Amazon Originals Series Making The Cut.

Making The Cut

The similarities between Project Runway and Making The Cut are hard to miss. The premise is the same with fashion designers competing in elimination challenges to a season finale with a fashion show. The major difference is the focus of designing as a global brand with the prize of a mentorship with Amazon Fashion.and winning one million dollars.

This is where Making The Cut definitely differs from Project Runway. The show focuses on not only the design, but how the personality of each designer is enveloped into the design looking towards becoming a global brand. The next emphasis is their focus on the marketing and merchandising behind creating, building, growing and operating a profitable global brand.

Making The Cut Amazon Store

In conjunction with the show Amazon Fashion now has a Making The Cut Store which allows customers direct access to winning designs from the show. As easy as a click of the mouse fans can order newly created and exclusive designs from the competitors. This is a fun add on for the fashion forward customer.


The series is light fashion fun as the designers compete for the very serious and life changing prize of one million dollars. Tim, Heidi and the celebrity judges guide the contestants with their often blunt, but sincere critiques as insiders in the world of fashion. The series is an Amazon Original and included with an Amazon Prime membership.

  1. I think the most unique part of this Amazon Original Series is that fans of this fashion oriented series can also become customers through the Amazon Making the Cut store. A reality show that becomes 'real' to the general public. Most interesting.

  2. I have seen the ad for "Making the Cut", but it did not draw me in. However, your review has! Now I want to see it. How very cook that you can purchase the designs for yourself through Amazon. I have to say, that is rather ingenious.

  3. It sounds like another interesting Amazon series. We don't have Amazon Prime. Yet, LOL.

  4. I am always interested in shows where individuals are mentored toward achieving their dreams. Though I am not very much into fashion, I think there are other elements of this I would enjoy. Thanks for introducing me to Making the Cut.

  5. Like Mouse, I saw the promo for this series and it didn't grab me, but your review has me giving it a second look! The idea of allowing viewers to purchase the winning designs on Amazon is brilliant.

  6. I don't watch a whole lot of television, but when I do I like to see this kind of show. I like fashion design and in my former life actually was a fashion designer and dressmaker. So this is right up my alley. Thanks for the heads up. I will try to tune in.

  7. I sure know people who love these kind of shows, and I'll venture a guess they're watching it! It's not my thing, but that's irrelevant because these kind of shows have a lot of fans!
