According to Lifetime, this is going to be the most competitive season ever! The 16 designers will not work independently; instead, they will participate in the series’ first ever Teams Edition. “Fashion has never been a team sport…until now!” Throughout the competition, the designers must work together while at the same time making sure their individual garments stand out on the runway.
The designers were shocked by the news and had mixed feelings. “We all need to work together, ‘coz we all need to move forward,” and “I’m not a team player,” were just a few of the comments. However, Heidi Klum reminded them, “This is Project Runway, nothing is easy…ever!” Needless to say, this season promises to be highly competitive and explosive. Bring on the drama!
While every challenge will be a team challenge, there will be only one winner in the end. The prize package includes, “$100,000 from L’Oréal Paris to start his/her own line, a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine, a 2013 Lexus GS 350, a $50,000 technology suite by HP and Intel to create his/her own vision and run his/her business and the opportunity to design and sell an exclusive collection at Lord & Taylor. Plus, the model paired with the winner of Project Runway will also appear in the designer’s Marie Claire editorial feature and receive $25,000 from L’Oréal Paris EverStyle.”
Mentor, Tim Gunn will return along with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia but due to scheduling issues, Michael Kors will be replaced by designer Zac Posen. However, Kors will return for the finale at the New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.
