With digital platforms serving as the starting gate for all activity, House of Style will chronicle how the fashion industry has evolved alongside technology innovations to bring a community together. House of Style will explore the symbiotic relationship between music and fashion, take fans behind the curtain to meet designers, and explore new trends.

During the series premiere, Kloss and Smalls take fans behind the scenes and on the stages of Paris Fashion week where they interview an eclectic mix of fashion and music elite including Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney, MIA and Alexander Wang. Fans will be able to watch extended play interviews.

To celebrate the series kickoff, "House of Style: Music, Models and MTV" a documentary that tells the story of the iconic series, will make its television premiere on December 1 on MTV.
