Bravo's Emmy-winning competition series "Project Runway" returns for another season of high stakes and fierce fashions. Returning mentor Christian Siriano, along with judges Nina Garcia, Brandon Maxwell, and Elaine Welteroth, takes on 16 new designers from across the United States and abroad, each ready to prove they have what it takes to show a collection at New York Fashion Week and be the next great name in fashion. Each 90-minute episode will test the contestants' creativity and technique with challenges such as producing a "hauntingly" chic look, an avant-garde look from faux fur, an unconventional cocktail dress with a twist, and in a Project Runway first, the ultimate "Real Housewives" reunion outfit for women from "The Real Housewives of Orange County," "The Real Housewives of New York City," and "The Real Housewives of Potomac." Runway shows are taken to new heights at cultural destination Lincoln Center and the beautiful hidden gardens at Rockefeller Center. Additionally, in the custom digital series "Project Runway Redemption," which premieres on Thursday, September 9, with new episodes airing every week until the "Project Runway" premiere, alums from "Project Runway" seasons 17 and 18 go head to head for a chance to win $25,000.
