BRAVO'S EMMY-NOMINATED 'PROJECT RUNWAY' STRUTS AGAIN WITH AN ALL-NEW SEASON PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7 AT 10 PM, ET/PT

PREMIERE EPISODE WILL FEATURE SIXTEEN DESIGNERS COMPETING FOR A CHANCE TO BECOME THE NEXT GREAT FASHION DESIGNER

NEW YORK -- October 3, 2005 -- On Wednesday, December 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Bravo will launch the second season of the Emmy-nominated, premier reality series focusing on fashion designers, "Project Runway."

Eager to give aspiring designers a chance to break into the notoriously difficult-to-crack fashion world, supermodel Heidi Klum will once again head a panel of industry luminaries, including top women's and men's wear designer Michael Kors and Elle Magazine fashion director Nina Garcia, who will serve as judges and industry mentors charged with selecting and molding the budding designers. There will also be guest judges each week based on the specific challenge. Tim Gunn, Chair of the Parsons The New School For Design, will return to guide the contestants through each of their challenges.

"The first season of 'Project Runway' generated incredible buzz and even more incredible designs," said Bravo President, Lauren Zalaznick. "We are thrilled to bring back this high quality, high drama series with new design challenges that inspire the creativity from the designers that viewers expect."

The new season's sixteen designers are:

Raymundo Baltazar, 24 -- Los Angeles, CA
Kara Janx, 29 -- Johannesburg, South Africa
Chloe Dao, 33 -- Houston, TX
Emmett McCarthy, 42 -- New York, NY

The winning designer will walk away with $100,000 in seed money to help them launch their own line and a 2007 Saturn SkyRoadster, both provided by Saturn. The winner's designs will be featured in a spread in ELLE, photographed by the magazine's world-renowned Publication Director, Gilles Bensimon. They will also receive a mentorship from the Banana Republic Design Team.
