Queer Eye fashion guru and a British designer Tan France and it-girl Alexa Chung, introduced the Next in Fashion series and hired eighteen stunning designers. However, they asked them to influence the entire globe with a unique and admiring dressing sense. The 18 designers showed their best performance to earn a big name in the fashion industry.

The reason why Netflix decided to end the series just after one season is still ambiguous. However, the social media giant used to respond when people did not appreciate the shows and even when they cost too much. We should not ignore the COVID-19 pandemic crisis as it’s one of the significant reasons for ending series.
