Project Runway All Stars will premiere later this year on Lifetime.

With a clean design slate, a fresh perspective on their art and a different mentor providing her own counsel and insight, the 13 designers set to have another judgment day by proving they still have the innovation, talent and poise that made them household names will now have to meet even higher expectations from Mizrahi and Chapman. The Project Runway All Stars designers include:

MARCHESA consists of evening gowns, wedding and cocktail dresses, hand bags and table top, and is the toast of the fashion industry outselling its competitors at major global retailers.
