Last Thursday Lifetime TV updated the official Project Runway website with small photos and short bios of the 16 new designers competing on the 6th season of the show which premieres on Lifetime on August 20. Today, they release new video where we can get more acquainted with all of the designers. Here are a few screencaps from the new vid:
This almost 4 minute video is a compilation of 8 short promo commercials which will air on Lifetime in the weeks leading up to the premiere of Project Runway season 6 next month. Each segment introduces two designers at a time. After the jump, check out the video in full which pieces together all 8 promo vids so that YOU can see and hear the 16 new designers introduce themselves …
The clip is surprisingly schmaltzy … clearly, the producers are making an emotional appeal for the audience to grow attachment to the designers. Thus far, there is no hint of the bitchy, cat-fighting that is sure to come. It’s an interesting PR move. I like seeing this new group of designers in action … and I am anxiously waiting for PR to premiere next month.
