Channel 4 is teaming up with fashion designer Henry Holland (pictured) to go inside the change rooms of major retailers in the UK.

Produced by RDF Television, The Changing Room (three x 60 minutes, working title) will follow the House of Holland label head as he goes inside the fitting rooms of House of Fraser, New Look, H&M, Monsoon and River Island to advise indecisive and frazzled shoppers on what and what not to buy.

The fixed-rig series promises to capture the “fascinating world of triumph, disaster and Spanx” that occurs behind the change room’s closed doors, according to C4 commissioning editor Gill Wilson.

“Over half of us have cried in one and three quarters have got stuck in an outfit in one,” the network said in a statement. “We spend £37 billion on clothes each year, yet one in three women admit to buying outfits that they never wear.”

Donna McLaughlin is the series producer for RDF. Holland’s past TV unscripted credits include Frock Me and the Rihanna-exec produced Styled to Rock.
