Good news to all you Project Runway junkies. Not only are Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors going to be back on Lifetime Network July 29 for season eight of the hit reality show. They’re saying goodbye — or auf wiedersehen – to one-hour episodes of Project Runway.
According to an AP report, fans of the Lifetime show will get an extra 30 minutes to enjoy the dramz that comes from combining huge personalities and fabric. The show will also air an hour earlier at 9 p.m. EST.
But one thing’s going to stay the same — it’s all about the competition. Up-and-coming designers with dreams of showing collections at New York Fashion Week will demonstrate their creative aesthetic — and haute personalities — in challenges judged by Klum and her panel of judges. The last designer standing will receive a $100,000 prize to launch a clothing line and a fashion spread in Marie Claire.
“We are not like other shows where we are styling them to look a certain way or feeding them lines,” Klum says. “It’s all real, and people like that.”
