Emmy Award-winning Actress Karrueche Tran Joins Fuse's Reimagined and Refashioned Design Competition Series "Upcycle Nation"

Fashion gets an alteration when aspiring designers from around the country compete to transform everyday items into fashion-forward streetwear

Tran To Host and Executive Produce 8-Episode First Season, Which Began Production In LA

Aug. 10 - Los Angeles - Fuse today announces the start of production on Upcycle Nation, a new competition series that stitches together the world of fashion and the culture of upcycling. Hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award-winning actress Karrueche Tran, Upcycle Nation features aspiring designers and upcyclers from around the country who must transform previously discarded items into unique articles of clothing. Tran will be joined by upcycling innovator Peder Cho, and fashion designer Jérôme LaMaar as judges.

In each episode, three clever, crafty and fashion forward contestants will rip, tear, staple, burn, hammer, and sew their way through two high-stakes challenges to win a cash prize. From taking discarded denim jeans and making them into a new functional jacket, to repurposing old Oreo bags into a new couture handbag, they will use their RAW talent to make something spectacular out of literally, nothing.

Upcycle Nation began production this month and is set to premiere on Fuse and Fuse+ in late 2022. The series is produced by Fuse Studios.
