Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Tim Gunn and Hannah Davis, PROJECT RUNWAY JUNIOR features the next generation of up-and-coming fashionistas, ages 13 to 17, who compete in weekly elimination fashion challenges as they try to avoid elimination by impressing the panel of judges: Kelly Osbourne, designer Christian Siriano and Aya Kanai, the executive fashion editor at "Cosmopolitan" and "Seventeen Magazine." The winner of PROJECT RUNWAY JUNIOR receives a full scholarship to the prestigious FIDM in California, a complete home sewing and crafting studio provided by Brother, a feature in "Seventeen Magazine" and a $25,000 cash prize, to help launch their line. The 12 designers are: Bridget (age 16; hometown: Brockton, MA), who began sewing at age 10 and has completed over 20 designs since then; Jaxson (15; Minneapolis, KS), who learned how to sew from his grandmother and now participates in sewing and sketching classes through his local 4H program; Jesse (16; Swampscott, MA), who, at age five, made his first gown for his grandmother, sparking his passion for fashion; Matt (17; Manhattan Beach, CA), who learned how to sew in elementary school, playing with structure, texture and embellishments to make unique pieces; Maya (13; Maumee, OH), who, as the youngest designer in the competition, has made ready-to-wear, eveningwear, avant-garde garments and even accessories; Peytie (15; Carlsbad, CA), who has her own brand, True Violette, where her clothes can be found in stores and surf shops in Orange County; Samantha (16; South Ozone Park, NY), whose garments are inspired by NYC and can be found wearing her own creations to show off her latest ideas; Sami (16; Westlake, CA), whose mother taught her how to hand stitch at age 6 and was a pro on the sewing machine by age 12; Victoria (17; Westlake, OH), whose style is edgy and modern with some avant-garde elements, taking inspiration from the 1970s punk scene in the UK; Ysabel (17; Artesia, CA), who first picked up sewing from her father and DIY tutorials on Pinterest and now runs a fashion blog called Along the Lines of Ysabel; Zach (15; Louisville, KY), who was taught how to sew at the age of 12 and continued his fashion education at his performing arts high school's costuming department; and Zachary (16; Berkeley, CA), who previously appeared on PROJECT RUNWAY: THREADS, having honed in his design skills and making him more determined than ever. Season 2 of PROJECT RUNWAY JUNIOR premiered on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at a special time, 10pm ET/PT, moving to its regular timeslot -- 9pm on Thursdays -- the following week. Tim Gunn and fellow co-host, supermodel Hannah Jeter, are once again joined by returning judges -- fashion designers Kelly Osbourne and Christian Siriano and Seventeen Magazine and Cosmopolitan Executive Fashion Editor, Aya Kanai -- to find the freshest force to be reckoned with in the fashion world. The season opens with 12 young designers meeting in New York City, where their first challenge starts immediately. Season 2 designers include: A'kai (age: 13; hometown: Hauppauge, NY); Allie (14; Dayton, Ohio); Cartier (16; Chubbuck, ID); Chelsea (14; Chatsworth, CA); Chris (16; Calverton, NY); Hawwaa (16; Mankato, MN); Izzy (16; Mount Pleasant, MI); Lucas (14; Windermere, FL); Molly (17; Fort Collins, CO); Rene (17; Dallas, TX); Ruby (14; Barrington, RI); and Tieler (16; Abita Springs, LA).
On Thursday, February 23, 2017 from 9-10:30pm ET/PT, Lifetime premiered the Season 2 finale of PROJECT RUNWAY: JUNIOR. The remaining teen designers -- Chelsea, Chris, Hawwaa, and Izzy -- put the final touches on their collections before showing in front of a live audience at the finale at FIDM Los Angeles! Actress and singer Olivia Holt is the guest judge. The Season 2 winner receives 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.
