First look, details about Project Runway Season 19
Each Project Runway episode will be 90 minutes, filled with loads of fashion, sass, and drama. This season, we will see challenges such as a hauntingly chic look, an Avante Garde, and an unconventional cocktail dress.
For the first time, there will be a Real Housewives reunion outfit from The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New York City, and The Real Housewives of Potomac. The shows will be held at cultural hotspots like Lincoln Center and the hidden gardens at Rockefeller Center.
Another feather in this season's hat includes an exciting panel of A-list guest judges such as Andy Cohen, Taraji P. Henson, Gigi Hadid, Wisdom Kaye, Jason Wu, Christopher John Rogers, Billy Porter, and Karlie Kloss.
The designer that'll win this season will receive $250,000 sponsored by Pilot FriXion Erasable Pens. Returning partners include Maybelline New York and TRESemmé, taking care of the makeup and hair.
The Project Runway designers will also compete to showcase TRESemmé's Future Stylists Fund, which offers education and career opportunities to Black female hair artists. Also, a Maybelline challenge will be held at Rockefeller Center, positioning itself with the Maybelline's Sky High Mascara.
