BRAVO'S 'PROJECT RUNWAY' TO PREMIERE WITH TWO BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT AND 11:00 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK -- November 3, 2005 -- On Wednesday, December 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Bravo will launch the second season of the Emmy-nominated reality series focusing on fashion designers, "Project Runway." The premiere episode will be immediately followed by the second episode at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, offering viewers twice the fashion and twice the drama.

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. Sixteen contestants will compete in weekly design challenges until only three remain and face off once again at New York Fashion Week in February.

"Our new group of designers are so talented and I couldn't be more excited for them to be able to showcase those talents in front of the entire country," said Heidi Klum. "With more twists and turns and demanding challenges, this season will truly serves as a worthy follow-up to our Emmy-nominated premiere season."

"Fans of last season's 'Project Runway' will certainly not be disappointed with the fashions and drama that these sixteen designers provide," said Frances Berwick, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production, Bravo.

The winning designer will walk away with $100,000 in seed money to help them launch their own line and a 2007 Saturn Sky Roadster, 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.

Heidi Klum and her managers Desiree Gruber and Jane Cha of NYC-based Full Picture also executive produce the series.
