Our fave fashion reality show returns tonight and, (per usual!), there’s tons of surprises, drama, and amazing clothes!
According to trailers, Season 12 of Project Runway seems to have a cast made up of a bunch of conflicting personalities. The season premiere is tonight and we are so excited to see mentor, Tim Gunn along with the judges Heidi Klum , Nina Garcia, and Zac Posen on season 12 critique another group of talented and nervous designers. What’s in store for us this season?
The 15 new designers seem to be in for some real treats throughout this season, as they have their creations judged and critiqued by guest judges like original judge, Michael Kors, alongside Kelly Osbourne, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kaley Cuoco, Allison Williams, Kate Bosworth, Stacey Keibler and Sigourney Weaver!
The Season 12 designers are set to become one with nature and do team building skills at fashion designers camp. The fun seems to quickly turn to animosity as the competitors get personal with name calling and harsh critiques; there is even suspicion that one of the contestants goes missing and one of the cameras gets broken! There is sure to be loads of drama, controversy, gorgeous designs, and fashion disasters. This season, for the first time ever, Project Runway is including ‘Fan Integration’ techniques so the viewers at home can become more involved in the creativity.
Fans all over the country will be able to interact with each other during each episode via a new ‘open screen, interactive feature called PlayRunway.’ With the use of smartphones, tablets and computers, viewers can send in their personal opinions and reactions to the show, IN REAL TIME! Other elements include Runway Redemption (#RunwayRedemption), where a mystery contestant from the past is chosen by fans on and will be the lucky 16th designer on this season!
If you think you have what it takes, there is now a Project Runway Superfan Contest where fans can apply through video submissions. Seven lucky super fans will be chosen to be on the show and receive a full fashion makeover! Last but not least, for the first time in the history of the series, mentor, Tim Gunn, will be able to “rescue” one designer during course of the season- the one designer that he feels deserves a second chance. As you can see, this season is full of a plethora of changes and enhancements, meaning it will be THAT much better!
We’re so excited to see what’s in store for us this season. Make sure you tune in to watch the Season 12 Premiere of Project Runway at 8 EST on Lifetime!
