The network just announced filming for Project Runway Junior. Featuring competitors aged 14-17, Project Runway Junior will follow the same format as its predecessor in an effort to highlight the “next generation” of great fashion designers. The show begins filming in New York City this summer and will air on the network this fall. Heidi Klum was the inspiration behind the new junior spinoff due to the fashions of her own kids.
I really like Project Runway, but good gracious why do they keep insisting on switching things up every season? First it jumped networks, then it brought back all-star contestants (I do think that was brillz), now it's losingMichael Kors? Can anything short of a miracle (and/or Austin Scarlett) revitalize this program?
Every reality show run(way)s its course, and this fashion competition is getting ready to start its eleventh season. Not only are we losing the snippy and fabulous Michael Kors, the competition has changed as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled at the return of host Heidi Klum and judge Nina Garcia, and I think that Zac Posen will be an amazing replacement for Mr. Kors. I just really don't do all that well with change. Of course, through all the ups, downs, and modeling turn arounds, there is one constant that lays all my fears to rest. Tim Gunn. If these new tweaks in the show are tacky or visionless, there's no doubt Tim will be telling the producers to "make it work!"
