From unmotivated mums to fashion virgins, designer disasters and heavy hang-ups, this is back-to-basics for straight-talking style gurus Trinny and Susannah. They're in Australia doing what they do best – turning the style challenged into the stylish with dramatic transformations.
Filmed on their recent visit to Australia; Trinny & Susannah’s Australian Makeover Mission is a fun and fast paced, exclusive local production screening over six weeks from Monday April 4 at 8.30pm on LifeStyle YOU.
“This is the first time Trinny and Susannah have produced a series in Australia and I’m so excited that it is for LifeStyle YOU,” said Nicole Sheffield, General Manager, LifeStyle Channels.
“This is a fast paced series with authentic reveals. Transforming a range of Australian women successfully in such a short period of time each episode is a big ask, however Trinny and Susannah were up for the challenge. I can’t wait for our viewers to see their dramatic transformations, they are incredible and so inspirational, I’m sure there will be plenty of tears.”
In each episode, Trinny and Susannah will target a different Australian city. They will find Australians who need their help and advice during their visits and in just 12 hours at each location, show them how to dress for their body type. With glamorous new outfits, hairstyles and make-up, the transformed participants then strut their stuff on a catwalk in front of friends and family.
Every city is a new challenge and every group of women they meet is unique. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, but there’s a catch. The ladies must commit to a blind makeover. Every mirror is removed and their new look is kept top secret until they face their image on the catwalk at the end of the day. Tears and tantrums turn into excitement and ecstatic disbelief as these dramatic transformations arm them with confidence and a deserving moral boost.
“We had a fabulous time filming the series and meeting hundreds of Australian women,” said Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine. “It certainly was a mission though; with serious fashion disasters and only a number of hours to make the transformations complete it was a challenge, but well worth it in the end. You are all completely wonderful and it has been a pleasure hearing your stories and sharing this journey with you.”
Uplifting and inspiring, the six-part one hour series is produced by Detour Productions for LifeStyle YOU.
