Project Runway lives through another season! Tonight marks the premiere of the show's sixth installment, with its all-new cast and a sister-series to back it up. Now that it's on Lifetime, it's bound to have plenty of fresh faces to match the challenges ready for reality TV.
Along with the return of the hit show is the debut of Models of the Runway, which will accompany Project Runway as it progresses. The new series focuses on the behind-the-scenes drama of the ladies strutting the catwalk, definitely something to look forward to.
There's also the special Project Runway All-Star Challenge
, where eight former contestants go head-to-head for another shot at the prize. Daniel Vosovic, Santino Rice from season 2, Jeffrey Sebelia, Uli Herzner , Mychael Knight from season 3, Chris March and Sweet P from season 4 and finally Korto Momolu from season 5 will compete for $100.000 in the two-hour event.
As for the new season of Project Runway
, we're bound to get to know the designers from all parts of the country who are ready to take a shot at their designer dreams. Of course, host Heidi Klum will be back, along with mentor Tim Gunn and the other judges.
The first episode of the season is "Welcome to Los Angeles!" wherein the 16 designers are brought in to face their fashion challenge. Tim and Heidi will be waiting for them, and there's no time wasted when the competition really begins.
Meanwhile, Models of the Runway
storms in right after, with Heidi discussing the performance of the designers with the models themselves. Check out the previews below.
