Season 13

"Project Runway" is a reality fashion designer competition series on Lifetime. The heat is on! Season 13 returns with an all new group of aspiring designers.

"Project Runway" is creating a one of a kind, full-season experience with Instagram which kicked off with #RunwayRedemption. Offering one past designer the chance to come back to the workroom and compete in season 13 fans were able to vote on their favorite designer's "InstaPortfolio" choosing from former season favorites Ken Laurence (Season 12), Alexander Pope (Season 12) and Amanda Valentine (Season 11). The victorious designer will be revealed in the premiere episode to compete against 18 "Project Runway" newbies. Each will have to make a lasting impression on judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen, and mentor Tim Gunn in order to advance to the next level. But no decision is ever final as Tim will have one opportunity to "save" one designer from being eliminated.

Elimination may come sooner than expected for some! In the premiere episode, the designers are in disbelief when they discover there is one final audition before being granted a spot on the show. Before they get to even get to the first challenge, three designers will be sent packing. After that hurdle, the remaining 16 will get their first challenge — they must create a look that would give the judges a glimpse of what their spring collection would like if they present at N.Y. Fashion Week. The designers will be able to complete their looks with shoes and accessories from the Aldo accessories wall but with only a trunk of fabric to use, like it or not, they have to "make it work."

Guest judges this season include Emmy Award-winning "Modern Family" actress Julie Bowen, Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss from "Mad Men," Shay Mitchell from hit series "Pretty Little Liars," Olympic gold medalist downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, entertainer Dita Von Teese, fashion designer Christian Siriano, British television personality and renowned photographer Amanda de Cadenet, and YouTube celebrity Bethany Mota.

The "Project Runway" Season 13 contestants include Alexander Knox, Angela Sum, Carrie Sleutskaya, Char Glover, Emily Payne, Emmanuel Tobias, fäde zu grau, Hernan Lander, Jefferson Musanda, Kiniokahokula Zamora, Korina Emmerich, Kristine Guico, Nzinga Knight, Samantha Plasencia, Sandhya Garg, Sean Kelly, The Mitchell Perry and Tim Navarro.

The winner will receive $100,000 from Red Robin to launch their business and the opportunity to design a fashion accessory for all the Red Robin servers; a complete sewing and crafting studio from Brother International Corporation; a premiere entertainment center, courtesy of Samsung; a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine and a car from Lexus. Additionally, the winner receives from Mary Kay, an entire year's worth of beauty products for their fashion shows and professional makeup artist services for their debut show and a shoe and accessory collection from Aldo to help enhance their upcoming runway shows. Best Western International will also provide the winner travel and hotel accommodations to fashion capitals and inspiring locations around the world. The winning model will also appear in the winner's fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine.
