Your First Look at Project Runway Season 18

Prepare to have a fabulous end to the year. Bravo's Project Runway returns for Season 18 on Thursday, December 5 at 9:30/8:30c.

The fashion competition is back with 16 new designers ready to wow host Karlie Kloss, mentor Christian Siriano, and judges Nina Garcia, Brandon Maxwell, and Elaine Welteroth with their jaw-dropping fashions. The designers will be more dynamic, the runway shows will be more breathtaking, and the critiques will be more intense than ever before.

Project Runway will be bringing back some elements of the competition that fans know and love, including the "Siriano Save," which gives Christian the opportunity to bring one eliminated designer back into the competition, and the chance to present a final collection at New York Fashion Week.

The Project Runway Season 18 premiere takes off with the designers meeting at the TWA Hotel at JFK Airport before pairing up to collaborate on cohesive pieces inspired by space exploration. The judges' winning look and a fan-favorite look will be manufactured in the USA by Nineteenth Amendment and sold on BravoTV.com/ProjectRunway.

Of course, there's nothing like the pressure of the Project Runway workroom. With epic challenges, medical emergencies, and clashing contestants, there will be no shortage of drama in Season 18.

Along the way, the designers will also get the chance to impress some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment with their creations, including Cyndi Lauper, Laverne Cox, Leslie Jones, and Rachel Brosnahan.

All of that will be so worth it for the designer who comes out on top in the competition, earning a grand prize of $250,000 courtesy of Bluprint, a feature in ELLE magazine, the chance to be featured in a Bluprint digital series, $50,000 compliments of Pilot, and a mentorship with the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).

The Project Runway fun continues with the digital series Project Runway After Show and Viewer Verdict available on BravoTV.com, brought to you by TRESemmé and Maybelline, respectively.

Last season's Project Runway winner Sebastian Grey's digital series Fashion Sewing with Sebastian Grey will stream on the Bluprint digital platform and app in conjunction with the Season 18 premiere.
