Some new shows are kicking off on Arena TV and it looks like they are keeping it all things fashion on Thursday nights.
Starting on Thursday 14 March the new series of The Rachel Zoe Project and It’s A Brad Brad World, plus the new Bravo series Dukes of Melrose.
Here’s a bit more about the shows:
The Rachel Zoe Project follows stylist and designer, Rachel Zoe. Her empire has expanded it now includes a womenswear collection of clothing and accessories, a celebrity styling department, a digital media team and a blow-dry salon. She has new offices, a new styling assistant and a slew of new employees in both Los Angeles and New York. Of course there is the long suffering Roger and her cute kid Tyler.
To think in the first series she had about three other employees it is amazing what a reality TV show can do for a bank balance.
It’s a Brad Brad World follows stylist Brad Goreski, who used to work for Rachel, and his team of assistants as he takes over the fashion world. The series follows Brad’s journey working with A-list clients new and old, while styling magazine features, fashion lines, product campaigns and New York Fashion Week.
The best thing about Brad is his wit.
Also the Dukes of Melrose premieres and it follows renowned boutique owners, Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver, as they take viewers inside the exclusive and glamorous world of vintage couture.
Located in Hollywood, Decades is the premiere destination for high-end fashionistas looking for finely curated collections and rare finds for their next red carpet or exclusive party. In order to meet the needs of their demanding and ever growing clientele, which includes A-list actors, models, and socialites, this dynamic duo raids the closets of the best collectors in the world, bids for couture at the most prestigious auctions and seduces new clients at award galas and fundraisers.
So if you like fashion or just Bravo TV shows you might want to check these shows out.

All-American Muslim, which screened on TLC in the US, purported to
take a look at life in Dearborn, Michigan–home to the largest mosque in the United States–through the lens of five Muslim American families.
Seems like a good premise for a show, right? Well, possibly, but it wasn’t embraced by audiences. As Stephen Colbert explained in his Threat Down last night the families were just too normal to appeal to audiences used to excessive levels of reality-TV-crazy (the video is unfortunately geo-blocked here).
who are trying to juggle their active social lives and up-and-coming careers while balancing the demands of their families and [Persian] traditions.
The Iranian community in the US is calling for a boycott of the show, claiming that it “caricatures” Iranian-Americans. This echoes the concerns of some Italian-Americans when Jersey Shore first debuted – if the Shahs take off like the Shore did, Iranian-Americans might have to resort to some counter-programming.
Check out the preview clip for a taste of the Shahs. I’m hoping it gets picked up here – it looks so trashy!
Two things I don’t like? I don’t like ants, and I don’t like ugly people.

Bravo TV is the factory that pumps out high quality reality TV like Project Runway, Top Chef, Shear Genius and the Real Housewives. In Australia Arena TV content is a majority of shows from Bravo.
The person behind the success of Bravo is Lauren Zalaznick. She not only continues to commission highly entertaining TV, but is also targeting the right demographic.
Among women ages 18 to 49, Bravo is the fastest growing of the top 20 entertainment cable networks, and its viewers are the most educated and upscale (about a quarter of them make more than $100,000 a year), a demographic that advertisers are desperate to try to reach.
The New York Times here has an indepth interview on Lauren examining her career and how she operates. I found it very interesting.
