Miguel to judge new streetwear show ‘The Drop’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The Iconic California singer will mentor contestants and judge on the new show.

BBC 3 have revealed Miguel will mentor up-and-coming creatives on a new show aimed at finding the next big talents in streetwear.

Filmed in Manchester, the eight part series will comprise of ten of the UK’s most promising creatives in the streetwear game and will help them make the leap from bedroom to the global market. The winner of the competition is in with a chance of having their first line stocked by a major UK retailer.

Miguel will serve as one of two mentors, providing guidance to contestants and oversee their efforts on weekly challenges.

BBC 3 Controller Fiona Campbell spoke on the new series saying, “At BBC Three, we love opportunities where we can provide a platform for people to express their creativity and passions. The Drop promises to be a fresh, new competitive format that delves into the business of streetwear, and we’re really looking forward to seeing what the creatives come up with.”

Meanwhile, Renowned Films co-founder Max Welch, Duane Jones and Tim Withers said, “The Drop should find the UK’s next big global streetwear brand. Renowned is thrilled to be working with the BBC on the format, a really exciting way of exploring business through the billion pound industry of streetwear.

“Miguel was our very first choice to be a judge, mentor, and creative partner for this show. Miguel’s certainly a style expert and tastemaker, but also a highly respected global musical, performance, and visual artist, so we know our entire cast, crew, and design competitors will respond strongly to him.”

Miguel added, “I really hadn’t ever contemplated doing something like this, but when I met the Renowned team and discovered their works I was immediately excited to get involved, both on-air and behind the scenes as a co-producer. I also love that this show will be UK-centric, as there are so many talented designers based in the territory who deserve recognition.”

The host and another mentor will be announced in soon along with details of the broadcast date.
