Project Runway season 6 preview
Light the stage and turn up the music, Project Runway is about to begin anew. It's season 6 of Project Runway and it's only on Lifetime beginning August 20.
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are back along with your favorite judges, fashion designer Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, fashion designer for Marie Claire magazine. And you won't believe who shows up in the Project Runway guest judge seat every week. (Want a sneak peek? Watch the video below!)
Sixteen new contestants are ready to sew up a storm competing in some of the toughest challenges ever. In the end, only one will walk away with the prize package which includes an editorial feature in an upcoming issue of Marie Claire magazine, a $100,000 cash prize from L'Oreal Paris to start a fashion line and a trip to Paris furnished by Evian.
That is one amazing prize, so you can bet Tim Gunn is going to make those designers work. Sloppy seams, drooping buttons and broken zippers simply won't do. These 16 Project Runway contestants are going to have to do better than their best, bringing something completely new and exciting to the runway.
The new season of Project Runway premieres August 20 at 10:00 pm, but you'll want to tune in to Lifetime at 8:00 pm for a very special event -- the Project Runway All-Star Challenge. This two-hour event features eight former fan favorites including the fabulously flamboyant Chris March, the eclectic Santino Rice, and the inventive Sweet P. They'll be stitching up a storm in hopes of taking home the $100,000 cash prize and bragging rights (which is the most important prize of all).
Since Lifetime knows how much you love Project Runway, they've come up with a companion series that will air every Thursday at 11:00 pm, right after the show. It's called Models of the Runway and it's your all-access backstage pass into the Runway world from the view of the models. For the first time ever, you'll get to see what it's really like in the fitting room and on the catwalk as these 16 models compete for a prize all their own; $25,000 in cash from L'Oreal Skin Genesis and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine.
It is going to be one full night of satins, silks and sequins with more of everything you've come to love about Project Runway. More concerned frowns from Tim Gunn, more ego jabs from Nina Garcia, more gaudy garments from over-the-top designers and some of the most incredible fashions ever seen on a New York runway. It all begins on August 20 with Project Runway All-Star Challenge at 8:00 pm, the Project Runway season 6 premiere at 10:00 pm and the premiere of Models of the Runway at 11:00 pm and it's all only on Lifetime.
