Set in the fashion world, it was inspired by the book Fashion Babylon. It was described in one of the early promotional items as "a romantic comedy about a young fashion designer battling an evil ex-boss, a sexy-but-devilish business partner and snobby fashionistas to get her break in work and love".

    Series 1 began on 14 January 2010 on BBC One. There were 6 episodes in total. The series also aired on BBC HD, with a late repeat the same night on BBC Three.

    Reception

    The first episode gained 3 million viewers with a 12% audience share, which fell to 2.6 million (11% share) for the third episode.

    Critical reviews of the series based on the pilot were mixed, with the London Evening Standard calling it a "jaw-droppingly, buttock-clenchingly dreadful pieces of television". Reviewing the first episode for The Guardian, Sam Wollaston said: "OK, it's silly and deeply shallow. It's also gorgeous, fizzy, bitchy, self-indulgent, obviously bad for you but dangerously addictive. Careful, Material Girl could become a habit."

    DVD release

    The first series was released in the United Kingdom on DVD on 22 February 2010.
