Bravo's fashion-creative-competition series Launch My Line features 10 established fashion designers paired with 10 industry professionals, who are highly regarded in their own field of expertise, but have always dreamed of having their own clothing line. From stylists, music producers, and event planners to CEOs and choreographers, the innovators will work with the established designers to bring their vision to life and create a fashion line. In the end, one team will be declared the winner, and someone's clothing line will be launched. Acclaimed designers, twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2 join Launch My Line as hosts, and fashion notables Stefani Greenfield and Lisa Kline serve as judges. Each week the teams will be put to the test, as they have to rely on each other's expertise to get through the competition. Some teams form a natural connection, while others have instant tension — but at the end of every episode, a complete look from each team must walk the runway and be judged in front of a live studio audience.

In the fourth episode of "Launch My Line" the designers are taken to an art gallery to look for inspiration to create asymmetrical eveningwear. But the remaining contestants are in for a surprise when they realize their inspiration is not from the art hanging on the walls, but from the nude models standing in front of them.||44:04||$1.99||View in iTunes|

The teams are asked to create an avant-garde outfit, but they must make sure they are pushing the boundaries of fashion without crossing the line of good taste. While the lines of fashion might not be crossed, the tension between some teammates gets intense and someone pushes their teammate to the edge.||44:04||$1.99||View in iTunes|

Not as good as Project Runway, but not horrible!
I actually enjoyed this show! I love love love fashion and I don't think you can have too many shows like this, cough cough! Sure Its not as good as the beloved Project Runway, but very entertaining. I think this show will be a fast hit.
Bravo really let me down on this one. I'm a huge fan when it comes to Top Chef and Project Runway, but this really doesn't do it for me. It seems like Bravo needed something to replace Project Runway and this was the best they could come up with. It's pretty dull and the hosts are way too scripted - almost robotic. They really don't help you get attatched to the contestents. There are too many rules and it gets too complicated to follow at times, as well as rushed. Definitely a waste of 45 minutes, no wonder it's free...
what a let down
I really wanted to give this show a chance. As I like project runway and thought the fashion show had something.
Now I understand why "launch my line" was in the waiting line for so long. It stinks. The concept is dead wrong. The presenters are not sympathetic enough. And as 99% of the participants are not likeable, there is actually hardly anybody to root for. I pity the designers who have to endure people who for the most part have no clue about fashion. I checked out two episodes an will not purchase any more. A huge, disappointing let down. If you like project runway and top chef, do yourself a favor and wait till january when the next season of project runway starts on lifetime.
