Hosted by Supermodel Heidi Klum
2005 Emmy Award Nominee: Best Reality/Competition Program
The world's sexiest supermodel Heidi Klum hosts ARENA TV's hot new fashion reality series Project Runway, premiering only on ARENA TV, Saturdays @ 7.30pm from 21 January 2006.
Toted as "the Prada of reality shows" in The New York Times, this Emmy nominated reality series gives 12 talented and hungry fashion designers the opportunity to develop their own fashion range, and be judged by fashion luminaries including Heidi herself and top international designer Michael Kors.
Contestants will be eliminated on a weekly basis by the stunning Heidi Klum, based on their execution of the design challenges until only three remain to face-off on the catwalk at New York's Fall Fashion Week.
"Our contestants are so talented and this show will give them a chance to make it in fashion, which is a really tough business to break into," said Heidi Klum. "I'm excited to give them a great showcase to display their talents, I'm really excited for people to see the show - our contestants are fabulous, and of course, this is fashion - there's a lot of angst and drama!"
The winner's designs will be photographed for US Elle by the magazine's world-renowned Publication Director (and Elle MacPherson's ex-husband) Gilles Bensimon. The winner will also receive US$100,000 to help them launch their own fashion range and a mentorship from the Banana Republic Design Team.
Heidi Klum is a star of the fashion world, having established herself as one of the world's most sought after supermodels, making great impact for clients such as Victoria's Secret and on the covers of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and every major fashion magazine globally.
Project Runway premieres as part of the Great line up on ARENA TV, Saturdays @ 7.30pm from 21 January.
ARENA. Great TV. Anytime.
