Project Runway Season 3 Episodes

15 Episodes 2006 - 2006

Season 3 of the reality show about fashion design is once again hosted by Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn returns as mentor to the designers; designer Michael Kors and "Marie Claire" fashion director Nina Garcia are also back as judges. Challenges this season include creating a garment from recyclable materials and from items found in the designers' apartments. As the four finalists are allowed to compete at New York Fashion Week, competition between the contestants is harsh: Someone might go too far and break the rules, risking to be asked to leave.
