Season 1

The second season of the American reality television series Project Runway: Junior premiered on December 22, 2016 on Lifetime. It featured twelve teen designers aged between 13 and 17. The designers were described by Tim Gunn as "kids [who] have grown up watching this show" (Project Runway).[1]

The show was co-hosted by Tim Gunn and Hannah Jeter, with Gunn also serving as the designers' workroom mentor. In his role as mentor, Tim Gunn had a "Tim Gunn Save" with which he could bring back an eliminated designer once during the season at his discretion. The three judges were fashion designer Christian Siriano (Project Runway Season 4's winner), fashion critic and designer Kelly Osbourne and Aya Kanai, Executive Fashion Director at Cosmopolitan and Seventeen magazines. Of note, unlike other versions of Project Runway, the only episode with a guest judge was the finale.[2]

The winner of “Project Runway Junior” received a full scholarship to the prestigious FIDM in California; a complete home sewing and crafting studio, plus, the dream machine, all courtesy of Brother; a feature in Seventeen Magazine; and a $25,000 cash prize, to help launch their line. Also, butter LONDON supplied a year’s worth of products and the opportunity to consult with butter LONDON to create a limited edition nail color collection. The styles from their finale collection will be manufactured by Los Angeles Development House, Lefty Production Company.[3]
