The Emmy Award nominated design competition will return to Lifetime with host Heidi Klum, mentor Tim Gunn and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia later this month.
Project Runway will launch its ninth season with 20 designers - the largest number of hopefuls to date - attempting to win a place in the Top 16. Lifetime has also teased that the first task for the Top 16 will take place at the "crack of dawn" and be "one of the toughest first challenges in the series' history".
Kim Kardashian, Christina Ricci, Zoe Saldana and Malin Akerman are some of the famous faces who will serve as guest judges throughout the season.
Project Runway wrapped its eighth season in October, with Gretchen Jones beating Mondo Guerra and Andy South in the season finale.
The winner of Project Runway will receive $100,000 from L'Oreal Paris to start their own fashion line, a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine, a $50,000 technology suite by HP and Intel to run their business, and the chance to sell their collection on Piperlime.com
Project Runway premieres Thursday, July 28, at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
