New group of designers join Heidi and Tim for the latest season of Project Runway with one important difference, the models, which will be assigned randomly for every challenge, range from size 2 to 22.
In their first team challenge, the designers struggle to make their voices heard. However, this is an unconventional materials challenge and many of them stumble when forced to create a fashion forward look out of recyclable materials. Maggie Q and Anne Fulenwider join the judging panel.
The designers are treated to a private screening of the film Leap! as well as a performance by Hiplet and must draw inspiration for an innovative and edgy design in order to survive another week. Maddie Ziegler is guest judge.
It's the Heidi Klum Sleepwear Challenge and the designers are feeling on top of the world, literally. If a slumber party on the roof of the Empire State Building doesn't bring them the inspiration they need to impress Heidi, nothing will! Demi Lovato joins as guest judge.
The models become much more than runway eye candy as they serve for inspiration to the designers to create a street style look, to be featured in a photo shoot. But ceding creative control to the models proves to be a difficult chore for some designers. Guests judges are Georgina Chapman and Kelsea Ballerini.
It's the JCPenney Challenge and the designers must use men's fabrics and designs to create a fashion forward look for their female models. Not only that, they must work in teams to do it, leading to a runway elimination that no one saw coming. Asia Kate Dillon is guest judge.
The dramatic fallout from the cheating scandal rocks the designers and leaves everyone wondering how they'll move forward in the competition. But the show must go on and the designers rally to create an Avant Garde look inspired by Shopkin's characters. Kate Upton is guest judge.
The runway is converted into a Winter Wonderland as the designers are tasked with creating a winter-themed look that will decide who goes to NY Fashion Week and who gets left out in the cold. Guest judge is Katie Holmes.
After heading home to work on their Fashion Week collections, the five finalists are visited by Tim who is not impressed with everything they have created so far. The designers return to New York and present the judges with two pieces from their collection. With only three spots guaranteed for Fashion Week, everything is on the line.
Fashion Week is finally here and the designers rush to put the final touches on their collections. Four designers will have their dream of showing at New York Fashion Week, but only one designer will reach the ultimate goal of being crowned the next Project Runway Winner. Guest judge Jessica Alba joins the panel.
The season 16 designers reunite with mentor Tim Gunn to discuss their Project Runway experience. They come ready to reminisce, share emotions, and get to the bottom of the cheating scandal that rocked the season. And some of our favorite models also swing by.
