GSN’s STEAMPUNK’D: Meet the Makers of the new steampunk design competition series

Steampunk'd Karianne

GSN’s new competition series STEAMPUNK’D is kind of like Project Runway set inside a Jules Verne novel. For the uninitiated, steampunk is: “Inspired by 19th century industrial steam-powered machinery, Steampunk is a retro-futuristic design movement seen in everything from fashion, to technology, to pop culture.” It’s sort of like importing H.G. Wells’ 1898 vision of what the future would look like. STEAMPUNK’D looks to discover the most talented steampunk designer in America over eight episodes of the series, which debuts on Wednesday, Aug 19, at 10pm ET/PT.
