Bravo confirms 'Project Runway 5' to include Nina Garcia, Michael Kors

By Christopher Rocchio, 06/13/2008 

After spending the day declining to confirm Nina Garcia and Michael Kors' participation in Project Runway's upcoming fifth season, Bravo confirmed both will reprise their judging roles in an announcement released late Thursday evening.

Garcia and Kors will join fashion guru Tim Gunn and lead judge Heidi Klum, both of whom were previously announced to be participating in April when Bravo confirmed that Project Runway's fifth season would premiere in July.

In addition to confirming Garcia and Kors' return, the network also announced that Project Runway's fifth-season cast will feature 16 contestants -- one more designer than the show's fourth season.

Project Runway's fifth season will premiere Wednesday, July 16 at 9PM ET/PT and will likely be the last Bravo edition of the network's flagship reality series.

In April, Lifetime Networks and Project Runway's Weinstein Company production company announced a five-year deal to bring cable's top-rated reality show to Lifetime beginning with its sixth season, which the women's network announced would debut in November 2008.

Project Runway's fifth season will also likely be the last edition executive produced by Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz and their Magical Elves production company.  Cutforth and Lipsitz confirmed last month that they will not follow Project Runway to Lifetime.
