They Sew... She Cuts Project Runway: Fashion Designers Attempt To Break Into The Industry

Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry

Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges' panel.

The sixth season of Project Runway is the only season of Project Runway filmed at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.

Returning as judges are supermodel Heidi Klum, fashion designer Michael Kors, and Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia. Tim Gunn returned as a mentor to the aspiring designers. This is the second season which consisted of all female finalists.

The winner of this season of Project Runway received an editorial feature in an issue of Marie Claire magazine, a cash prize of $100,000 to start her own line, and an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Paris.

Furthermore, the winning model of this season received a $25,000 cash prize from L’Oreal and took part in the winning designer's fashion spread in Marie Claire.

The premiere was preceded by a two-hour special episode of Project Runway: All-Star Challenge where eight past contestants (Daniel Vosovic, Santino Rice, Jeffrey Sebelia, Uli Herzner, Mychael Knight, Chris March, Sweet P, and Korto Momolu) competed in one challenge with a cash prize of $100,000.

Vosovic won the challenge, while Momolu came in second place, Sweet P in third, and March in fourth
