Celebrity Cruises Partners with Lifetime's Emmy®- Nominated Series Project Runway®
August 25 2015 - A first for Project Runway and the cruise industry, Celebrity Cruises has become the Emmy®-nominated competition series' first-ever cruise line partner. An episode of Project Runway aired on August 20, 2015 in the US, featuring special guest and Celebrity President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, alongside co-host, mentor and Emmy Award-winner Tim Gunn. Viewers can watch the ambitious fashion design contestants compete in a special challenge on the journey to becoming the next prestigious winner of Project Runway.
Celebrity is also providing one of the prizes for this season's winning designer. The winner and their guest will be able to vacation almost anywhere in the world on a Celebrity cruise in the brand's popular and rejuvenating spa-inspired AquaClass accommodations.
"Our partnership with Project Runway is the perfect fit - at the core of both of our brands are innovative, big and bold ideas that never have been seen before in our industries," explained Lutoff-Perlo. "It is incredibly exciting to finally share the news, even more so as the first cruise company to ever collaborate with the popular series. We hope everyone will join us in watching the highly anticipated episode, in which the Project Runway team continues the search for the next big fashion designer."
Lutoff-Perlo added, "We would love to welcome Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and Tim Gunn onboard our ships in the future!"
Season 14 opens with sixteen ambitious designers competing through grueling design-focused tasks and challenges, and only the best will stay on top. The season's winning designer will receive many prizes in addition to a Celebrity Cruises modern luxury vacation.
