NEW YORK, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Martha Stewart is teaming up with designers Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Tory Burch and Jenna Lyons for a new U.S. television special about fashion.

"Martha Stewart Presents: The Women Who Dress America," a one-hour Hallmark Channel Original Special, is set to premiere Sept. 19. It is timed to coincide with New York's Fashion Week.

"The Women Who Dress America" is one of several interview specials planned with Stewart in conversations with some of the world's most interesting people, Hallmark said. A second "Martha Stewart Presents" prime time special is scheduled for November.

"Martha Stewart is one of the most emulated and influential people of our time," Bill Abbott, president and chief executive officer of Hallmark Channels, said in a statement.

"I'm looking forward to hosting these prime time specials for Hallmark Channel and to having very candid conversations with these four interesting and influential women," Stewart added. "It's a wonderful opportunity to bring our viewers a different side of the world of fashion and a better understanding of the challenges and rewards of being on fashion's front lines."
