Nothing like some good news to start the weekend, right?
It's been almost five months since the Season 8 finale of Project Runway aired, sending us all into a tizzy over [spoiler alert] Mondo's unbelievable defeat at the hands of Gretchen. Since that fateful day we've heard nary a peep out of the folks at Lifetime or Bunim-Murray about the show's next season, though there have been rumors flying around about the development of spin-off shows such as Project Runway: Masters and Project Runway: Accessories.
But, as Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell said, ain't nothing like the real thing, baby, and now we have a reason to rejoice: Bunim-Murray has begun casting for Project Runway Season 9.
The details from Bunim-Murray's website are below:
Project Runway is now casting for Season 9! Have what it takes to show your stuff at New York fashion week? This is your chance!
The minimum age to apply for the show is 21.
For more details, information and to apply, please fill out the application (Download) and follow the directions on it.
The deadline for us to receive applications is April 15th.
That said, our invite only casting calls begin in late April. Getting your submission in as soon as possible guarantees that you can be invited to the call that is geographically closest to you. Please don't wait until the last minute - fill out the application and get us all of your info immediately!
All applications should be sent to:
Project Runway Casting
6007 Sepulveda Blvd. Van Nuys, CA 91411
See our FAQS for information on how to make an audition tape. We prefer submissions of Mini-DV, DVD or media files, as listed on the application.
Questions? Send your e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So if casting calls begin in late April, we're probably looking at an August premiere with the contestants will be showing at Fashion Week in September. Yes, this probably means the decoy collection practice will probably return (last year the Top 10 all showed collections so we wouldn't know who made it), but at least we know the show is returning!
Are you excited about Project Runway's return or are you still befuddled about the outcome of Season 8? And if any of you dear readers decide to audition for the show: good luck and make it work!
