The former "Project Runway" fashion experts and contestants from around the world descend on Los Angeles for season two of the reality design competition.

Here are 5 things you need to know

  1. This season, "Making the Cut" celebrates the city known for some of the world's most fashionable people and events. From star-studded red carpets to cutting-edge street style, Los Angeles' diverse fashion scene sets the perfect backdrop for season two of "Making the Cut."
  2. The ten competing designers and entrepreneurs include Los Angeles born-and-raised Ally Ferguson. Ferguson has more than 15 years of experience in the fashion industry, learning from iconic brands such as G Star Raw, Ed Hardy and Field Scout, to name a few. In 2016, the LA native founded Seeker, a gender and age-inclusive, locally sourced, sustainable, organic hemp fashion label. Seeker was developed as an experiment after Ferguson was inspired by experiencing other cultures while traveling.
  3. Limited editions of the winning look from each episode will be available for purchase immediately following each episode exclusively in Amazon Fashion's Making the Cut store. After most winning looks from season one sold out in under two days, season two will offer increased availability of winning looks. 
  4. Heidi Klum said the designers this season aimed to be more gender-inclusive. "That is what I take away most from this season, is that really the designers wanted to make gender-fluid clothes, which I think is really cool," she said.
  5. Tim Gunn shared tips on what it takes for a global brand to survive. "It needs to have a vision. It needs to have elements that show it can be differentiated from everything else. Heidi's always talking to the designers about breaking through the noise. How do you get people to pay attention to you when there is so much out there? You have to have that distinction. You have to have a superb business plan that allows you the ups and downs. And you have to have an extraordinary passion and resilience," he said.
