As the lead-in to 'Project Runway' season 6, Lifetime will air a special episode where designers from previous seasons are back in competition.
Some of the notable designers who have taken part in the previous seasons of "Project Runway" will be back for one more round on the reality show. Called "Project Runway: All Star Challenge", the two-hour special edition will serve as the warm up for the long-delayed sixth season premiere on Lifetime.
The eight designers will compete for a $100,000 prize in cash. Once again they will create a design that will have to suit the theme and the judges' favor before one winner is declared. Coming back as the mentor on the workroom is Tim Gunn and returning to criticize the all-star designers are Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia.
"All Star Challenge" will air Thursday, August 20 at 8/7c and followed by the sixth season of "Project Runway" at 10/9c. There is also a companion series called "Models of the Runway" airing at 11/10c. The additional series "will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the reality competition - from the models' perspective."
