Sixteen new contestants look to make their designs work as they grace the catwalk during the 16th season of Lifetime’s Emmy-nominated series Project Runway, which premiered on Thursday, Aug. 17. Not only is the show celebrating their “super, sweet 16,” it is also celebrating body diversity throughout the season, featuring size-inclusive models (size 0-22).
Whether it’s requiring designers to make looks from grocery store goods, providing a contestant the space to talk about his HIV status, or featuring the first-ever rainway, Project Runway has broken a lot of reality TV and design barriers in its past 15 seasons. And it’s about to break one more when it returns on August 17: In season 16, the latest crop of contestants will be designing for size-inclusive models. The models will range from sizes 0 to 22 and test the contestants’ skills to design for all sizes.

Amy was inspired by complex shapes and construction – but strove to make the complexities appear clean and minimal. She used fabrics that would bring light and movement to the collection, including silk georgette, silk charmeuse, and Schoeller-Aeroshell.
