The wait is over and it's 'sew' time. Emmy-nominated competition reality series Project Runway features host supermodel Heidi Klum and a panel of industry luminaries, including judges Michael Kors, top women's and men's wear designer and Nina Garcia, Elle magazine fashion director, as they decide who is “in” and who is “out.”
Tim Gunn, Chief Creative Officer at Liz Claiborne, Inc. once again acts as a mentor to the contestants as they navigate weekly fashion challenges.
In what will prove to be the most exciting season yet, some of the biggest names in fashion, sports and design will guest star this season on Runway.
The 15 Project Runway contestants will be whittled down to the finalists who will show their own line in front of an audience of fashion industry movers and shakers at New York Fashion Week.
As part of the winner’s prize package, an editorial feature on the winning designer will run in an issue of ELLE, the winner will walk away with a cash prize of $100,000 from TRESemmé professional hair care to start their own line, and will have the opportunity to sell a fashion line on Bluefly.com.
Saturn will award the winner a 2008 Saturn Astra.
