Tim Gunn is out on the Revolution with ABC¸ Heidi Klum is sashaying into Motherhood over model land, and yet Lifetime says the sewing must go on with Project Runway All Stars (Season 10)! Project Runway is back with a new season, a completely new panel, and more money and prizes than ever before. Season 10 of the show brings back 13 of its top contenders to cut, sew, zip and slay us with new fits and fashions.
The contestants include fan favorites like Rami, Sweat P, Austin Scarlet, Mondo, April, Anthony W. (Couture, Country, & Classy), Michael C., Elisa (No spitting please), Kara, Gordana, Mila, Jerrell, and Kinley. The judges are industry pros Issac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, and Angela Lindvall—she’s no Heidi. The Guest Judges this season will make fashionistas drool Diane von Fürstenburg, Miss Piggy, Badgley & Mischka, Erica Daman, Pharrell Williams and many more. The winner will take home a fashion spread in Marie Claire and a position as guest editor for one year, a collection of Brother sewing equipment, an office by HP and Intel, to sell their line in select Neiman Marcus stores and on their website, and a cash prize of $100,000 from L’Oreal Paris.
The Catwalk Competition is heightened and the designers are hungrier than ever to rip this Lifetime Runway up with something new. The past three episodes featured the unconventional challenge (designing from the 99 cents store), evening gown challenge (creating couture for a night at the Opera) and designing for a Diva, Miss Piggy the Muppet no less. While we have lost Sweat P, Elisa, and Gordana the designers are grabbing at pins and needles to whip up clean cut captivating fashions for the new judges. The show is rejuvenated with its new spins and Joanna Coles guidance in the workroom. Since she will be working with the winner it is invaluable advice to work with her and head her observations.
Tune in to Lifetime on Thursdays 9 p.m. ET or catch up on this season at LifetimeTv.com!
