Eight Project Runway Designers to Compete in Project Runway All-Star Challenge Before Season Six Premiere on Lifetime

Project Runway Brings Out the All-Stars to Promote Season 6

As if August 20 wasn't going to be big enough just with the premieres of Project Runway and Models of the Runway, here's another event to add to the mix: Eight big-name Runway alums will compete in an all-star challenge airing that night!

The two-hour special kicks off the all-Runway, all-the-time evening, and Lifetime isn't kidding when it calls these contestants all-stars. Almost all of the designers presented at fashion week during their seasons — and one winner (Jeffrey Sebelia of season three) is coming back to prove he deserved his title. Here's the whole list of competing designers:

  • Season two: Daniel Vosovic, Santino Rice
  • Season three: Jeffrey Sebelia, Uli Herzner, Mychael Knight
  • Season four: Chris March, Sweet P
  • Season five: Korto Momolu

It's not clear what kind of challenges the contestants will face — just that they'll have Tim Gunn as a mentor and Nina, Michael, and Heidi as judges, just like old times. And there's a pretty big prize at stake, too: $100,000, the same amount the Runway winner normally gets.


It's a bummer Lifetime couldn't get anyone from the first season to compete, but it's still a clever way to get people who thought they were over Runway to tune in for season six. Do you think this is a savvy move — or Runway overkill? And which of the all-stars do you think has the edge?

i think that this could be interesting. one of the best parts about a lot of these guys are that they are all personalities. they aren't just the designers but some of them are the ones that we loved to hate or just got irritated with...but all had their own unique flair.

Santino and Daniel! My faves!

love, love, love this idea. I wish Jerrell were coming back though.... his commentary made me laugh so hard I would cry. But I love Korto's design, she so should have won. Oh and I hope Uli has experienced more than just the "hot weather"

This news is awesome. I love Jeffrey, Mychael, Daniel V., and it's good to see Santino Rice again. Agreed, where's Andre? I also would have loved to see Jay and Allison.

JCP0240 — as I recall, he added the "y" right after his season ended. All of his work since has been under Mychael. No idea why!
