Anyone going to watch Project Catwalk aka the British version of Project Runway? It starts tonight in the same timeslot that PR was in (Mondays at 10 pm). Here's the show description:
LinkHosted by international style icon Elizabeth Hurley, Project Catwalk is the first UK-based TV competition to focus on the world of fashion design. The show gives aspiring designers a rare and prized opportunity to break into the notoriously tough fashion world, whilst being mentored and judged by some of the biggest names in the industry. Project Catwalk features Julien Macdonald and Elle magazine's editor Lorraine Candy as permanent judges. Ben de Lisi is the contestants' mentor, charged with selecting and moulding the budding talents. A panel of top industry figures including, Erin O'Connor, Frost French, Giles Deacon, Isabella Blow and Patrick Cox set the challenges and then judge the contestants' performances. Meanwhile, in a parallel competition, 12 catwalk models from top agencies Premier and Select battle it out to become the designers' muses and stay in the game.
Each week the budding designers face elimination based on how they meet the challenges set for them by the panel until only three remain. The three finalists will each showcase full lines on the catwalk during London Fashion Week and the winning designer's garments and model will be photographed for Elle magazine. The winning designer will also receive the seed money to help them launch their own line.
