Season Premiere Thursday, August 6 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Lifetime

          Hosted by supermodel and fashion maven Heidi Klum, the hit Emmy®-nominated series Project Runway provides budding designers with an opportunity to launch their careers in fashion, under the watchful eyes of mentor and co-host Tim Gunn and judges Nina Garcia and Zac Posen.

          Lifetime’s Emmy nominated Project Runway (#ProjectRunway) returns as sixteen new hopefuls compete for fashion glory, starting Thursday, August 6, at 9pm ET/PT.  With New York as their canvas for inspiration, the fashion adventure of their lives will only last as long as they continue to impress judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen and mentor Tim Gunn.  But no decision is ever final as Tim will once again have an opportunity to “save” one designer from being eliminated.
