Epic Games and Australian YouTuber Lachlan have announced a partnership to host the second season of the popular Fortnite fashion show.
Lachlan hosted the first fashion show in January 2020 featuring duos teams. The contest rated players based on their back blings, pickaxes and emotes. Players having the best fashion coordination and synergy in their performances had a higher chance of moving on to the next round. The second season will feature trios instead of duos and the format of the competition remains similar to Season 2.
What Is The Format Of the Trios Fashion Show?
The Fortnite fashion show will have four rounds, including one fashion round and three performance rounds. The judges will rate players based on their performances in each round on a unique dashboard in front of them. If a team is not good enough to move on to the next round, Lachlan will blow them up with a grenade launcher. The eliminated players move to the viewing gallery and can watch the rest of the event in-game.
Round 1: Fashion Round
The first round is a primary fashion round where the judges (Lachlan and co.) will judge players based on their skins, back blings and pickaxes. First impressions last long and players will want to impress the judges with some innovative, in-sync skins.
Round 2: Performance Round
The second round is a performance round and participants have to impress the judges with unique storylines and good coordination.
Round 3: Performance Round with Emotes
The third round allows players to use emotes in yet another performance round. If Season 1 is an example, Fortnite players can be very innovative with their use of emotes.
Round 4: Performance Round with Buildings
Very few teams will qualify for the final round. Lachlan’s official announcement video showed only two teams in the final round. Teams can build structures and use these buildings as a prop for their performance.
The entire tournament is still a fashion show and the judges will rate players based on their skins.
