You Are What You Wear

This take on the fashion makeover format sees Rylan Clark-Neal at the helm of the department store of dreams.

Alongside him are five of the UK's most exciting stylists with very different styles and personalities, ready to uplift a diverse range of contributors seeking to reinvent their wardrobes.

Each episode follows four customers as they come to the store in the hope of solving a fashion dilemma or undergoing a complete transformation.

The customers are each invited into a fitting room with a giant mirror, where they are asked to look at their reflection and articulate what they see.

In this emotional moment, they open up to Rylan about their insecurities and how they really feel about themselves.

Watching on from behind the scenes will be a squad of five amazing personal shoppers, all with very different styles and personalities.

The stylists will react to each customer's revelations and decide among themselves who is the best fit for each person.

During the makeover, the other stylists will continue to look on, offering their opinion and other takeout.

Once their incredible style makeovers are complete, the customers return to the mirror room with Rylan to see their new look for the first time.

Once again, they look at their reflections and answer the all-important question: what do they see?

In the series premiere: Chris, a 6'5" personal hygiene salesman who only wears black, is looking to inject some colour into his wardrobe.

Meanwhile, Manny from Leeds has a very different dilemma. At 5'3" he's been wearing children's-sized clothes for years and is looking for a grown up style with sass.

We also meet Rachael, a PE teacher with a trainer addiction who wants to swap gym wear for glamour, while warehouse worker Karen is worried that her work wardrobe is creeping into her weekend.

The series also offers universal fashion takeout aplenty, with the stylists diving into their own wardrobes to show how a simple blazer can transform any look.

And Rylan provides plenty of behind-the-scenes entertainment and some laugh-out-loud moments as he helps his customers get to grips with a whole new way of working their wardrobes.
