About ‘The Hype’ Season Two

The first season hosted upcoming streetwear designers, competing every week to make creative and future-oriented garments that embraced the lifestyle, art, music, and outlook of streetwear while empowering entrepreneurial skills and talents. 

Justin Mensinger was revealed as the season's winner after tying positions with Kai for great-looking and fashionable outfits, challenging for the judges to reject. 

The upcoming installment dives deeper into entrepreneurship and creativity, with new faces competing to win the $150,000 cash prize, alongside a co-sign and free sale of their products at the StockX for ready-to-wear pieces. It follows the designers through their top-notch cutting skills and the journey to prove how the future of streetwear lies in their hands.


The trailer kicks off with a glimpse of the judges and in-process sewing techniques, followed by a warm welcome into the second season. 

From the twelve designers to iconic co-signers and streetwear's most influential designers and judges, the upcoming season has plenty in store for the fans.
