RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Crystal is set to front the second series of reality show Sew Fierce, judging a team of designers as they compete to create their most fabulous drag clothing creations.

Launching next Tuesday (9 April) on streaming platform Froot (and OUTtv in the US), Crystal will co-host the new Canadian series alongside designer and fellow drag star Jaime Lujan.

Speaking exclusively to Attitude, Crystal said: “If you remember my season of Drag Race UK, you know I looove a sewing challenge – so this show is an amazing fit for me. It was absolutely my favourite TV experience to date.”

“The designers represent so many schools of drag” – Crystal on Sew Fierce

First launched last year, Sew Fierce will see Crystal and Jaime on a mission to find the world’s best drag designer, mentoring nine contestants and setting challenges to measure their creativity. Think Project Runway but even more fabulous.
