You'll Never Guess Who's Running This Fashion Show (Hint: Prison Inmates!)

Maximum security is nothing new at fashion shows — just try sneaking backstage without a press badge. But security is nowhere near as tight in the tents as it is at this designer presentation set inside a Philippines prison, which houses the most dangerous criminals in the country. In a trailer for The World's Most Fashionable Prison we get a glimpse at the life inside the walls of the facility and the man who's bringing real beauty to incarceration, one piece of chiffon at a time.
Thanks to the guidance of once-defamed designer Puey Quinones, the men who occupy the prison have turned their attention to the drawing boards and sewing stations to create a collection that's anything but orange jumpsuits. Think pretty red-carpet dresses, strapless numbers, and bright colors for the pieces that will walk the Project Bilibid Runway. Check the trailer below for a little taste of what could be the most unlikely future couturiers, and see the full documentary when it debuts this year.
