          It’s time for a different set of school supplies - scissors, sewing machines and fabric!  The new school year brings the freshman class of young designers in the inaugural season of Project Runway Junior. This next generation of up-and-coming fashionistas, ages 13 to 17, will be mentored by Emmy® Award winner Tim Gunn who co-hosts alongside supermodel Hannah Davis. Kelly Osbourne, designer Christian Siriano and executive fashion editor at Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazine Aya Kanai, serve as judges to determine who will make the grade. Actress Bella Thorne joins panel as guest judge for the final challenge. Project Runway Junior premieres Thursday, November 12, at 9pm ET/PT.

           The December 10th episode will feature a special video appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama to announce a challenge with Lands’ End that will support Let Girls Learn, a new whole-of-government Presidential Initiative, which includes a collaboration with the Peace Corps that helps adolescent girls around the world go to school and stay in school. The Project Runway Junior designers will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a design that will be used and sold on
