NEW YORK -- April 6, 2005 -- Bravo, Miramax and ELLE will begin holding open casting calls in Los Angeles, New York, Houston and Miami for aspiring fashion designers to compete on the second season of Bravo's hit series "Project Runway."
"Project Runway" will once again follow 12 up-and-coming designers as they compete weekly on design challenges in front of a panel of top designers, fashion editors, photographers and stylists that will be spearheaded by Heidi Klum. Contestants will be cut on a weekly basis until only a few remain to face-off with debut collections on the runway at New York's Fashion Week in February 2006. The winner's designs will be photographed for ELLE by the magazine's world-renowned Publication Director, Gilles Bensimon. The winner will also receive funding and all of the tools necessary to launch their own line.
"Project Runway" open casting calls will be held on the following dates (locations will be announced shortly). All calls will take place between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.:
LOS ANGELES: April 16 & 17
HOUSTON: April 23
