Project Runway Season 10 is the tenth season of the television show Project Runway, appearing on Lifetime. The season began airing on July 19, 2012 with 16 designers competing to become "the next great American designer."

The series began filming on June 15, 2012, launching the season with a fashion show in front of a live audience.[1]

Returning as judges were supermodel Heidi Klum; fashion designer Michael Kors; and Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia. Tim Gunn returned as the workroom mentor. This would be the final season that Michael Kors would be a full time judge, as he later decided he wanted to spend more of his time as a fashion designer as opposed to judging Project Runway.

Lord & Taylor was the exclusive retail sponsor for Project Runway's 10th season and has merchandised the accessory wall with an assortment of products. In addition, Lord & Taylor hosted a challenge episode for the designers and for consumers on Fashion's Night Out at its flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.[2]

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ After Andrea and Kooan made the decision to withdraw from the competition, producers decided to reinstate Raul so that they would not have fewer competitors than they were supposed to have.
  2. ^ Andrea left in the middle of the night unseen, and when producers attempted to contact her, she did not answer. After several hours, she finally e-mailed the producers to tell them that she was safe, but she was officially withdrawing from the competition.
  3. ^ After Andrea made the decision to withdraw from the competition, Kooan decided that he was not made for the show either and he should leave. He was then escorted off the premises by producers.
  4. ^ Judges decided that every contestant had met the bar on this challenge, and therefore nobody deserved to be eliminated.
