Smithsonian Channel greenlights ‘Frock Stars’

Cabler's first reality skein focuses on L.A. vintage clothing boutique

Smithsonian Channel has greenlit “L.A. Frock Stars,” its first ever unscripted series. The fashion-forward skein will bow on March 7.

Show centers Hollywood vintage clothing guru Doris Raymond and her Los Angeles boutique The Way We Wore. Cabler has ordered six episodes of “Frock Stars.”

“The Smithsonian Institution has long maintained a collection of historical fashions, most notably the First Lady dresses,” said David Royle, executive vice president of programming and production at Smithsonian Channel. “Doris Raymond is an American original. Her eye for vintage fashion is respected by some of the biggest names in fashion and show business.”

NHNZ is co-producing “L.A. Frock Stars” with Smithsonian Channel and BBC Worldwide. Judith Curran is exec producing for NHNZ, and David Royle and Charles Poe for Smithsonian.
