Meet The New Project Runway Designers

Project Runway Season 10 is set to premiere July 19 and Lifetime has revealed the 16 contestants chosen to compete during the 10th anniversary season.

Let's start placing bets now. I'm putting my money on Gunnar Deathrage (for the name alone). Actually Gunnar was a part of last season as well, but didn't make the initial cut.

    From beginning of the show, one of my favorite designers was Ven Budhu till I see tonight episode. His comments towards his client was harsh and rude considering Ven is not slim person and all his comments will be aired and whole country will watch it. I am sorry to say he is very ignorant if he does not know in the reality of the life not everyone is size two models.
