Kenmore Live Studio in River North and designer, Debbie Jagel are casting for a new reality web show called So You Wannabe a Designer. Under-the-radar talents will compete quasi-Project Runway style for a chance to win $20,000 and a Kenmore washer/ dryer set. The six chosen designers must complete tasks involving some heavy-hitting stylists, photographers, retailers, and of course, Kenmore products all under live-stream cameras. Each week Kenmore will splice together some of the best footage from the week of fashion disasters and triumphs to create the 8-part web series. If you think you've got what it takes to compete in the So You Wannabe a Designer Challenge, its not too late The deadline for entries is this coming Friday, March 4.
