We may have just finished Project Runway All Stars Season 3 last night on Lifetime, but all the fashion and designer fans don’t have to worry as Lifetime is bringing us a new series called Under The Gunn 2014 with fan favorite Tim Gunn serving as host. This is a twist on the Project Runway franchise and have Mondo Guerra, Nick Verreos and Anya Ayoung-Chee serving as mentors to up-and-coming designers. It looks like it could be an amazing series, so get the details below in my Under The Gunn 2014 spoilers!
This is a special competition, as the winning designer and the winning mentor each get a prize! So, Mondo, Anya and Nick will want to pick out the best of the best designers to represent their teams during Under the Gunn Season 1! Tim Gunn will serve as host of the show and the judges will be designerRachel Roy; celebrity stylist Jen Rade, creator of some of the most iconic red carpet looks in Hollywood; and TV fashion correspondent and Marie Claire Senior Fashion Editor Zanna Roberts Rassi. Expect a variety of guest judges throughout the season!
Each mentor will be given a team of up-and-coming designers to work with. The designers will be eliminated throughout the season until a winning designer and mentor are crowned at the Under the Gunn 2014 finale! The winning designer receives “a cash prize of $100,000; a top of the line sewing and embroidery studio, courtesy of Brother International Corporation; an all-expense paid inspirational trip to Paris, courtesy of Blowpro the blowout experts, and Blowpro styling products; the opportunity to design the uniform for Benefit Cosmetics; a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine; a 2014 Lexus CT 200h; and the opportunity to design a collection sold exclusively at francesca’s®.”
For the winning mentor, they receive “a 2014 Lexus CT 200h, a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine and a spot as guest editor for one year.” That is a very big prize for the mentor as well, so you know they will be working hard on Under the Gunn 2014.
This is a new concept, so I am excited to see it all play out and excited to see Tim Gunn in a different role! Under the Gunn Season 1 premieres on Thursday, January 16 at 9/8c on Lifetime!
