Tim Gunn Talks about Project Runway's Los Angeles Location

June52009_1050_lg FIDM Los Angeles is Project Runway's new West Coast location and the stars, Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum, couldn't be happier about their show's new home in L.A.

"Los Angeles is indisputably the home of the red carpet. It's the home of film and television costume, and it has a celebrity dimension that New York doesn't have. Watching the first elimination this season, I thought, Wow, we should be here," Project Runway's Tim Gunn told Entertainment Weekly.

Project Runway: Season 6 premieres August 20th on the Lifetime network.

The list of former Project Runway winners includes FIDM Grad Leanne Marshall. Contestants have included FIDM Instructor and Grad Nick Verreos and FIDM Grads Kelli Martin, Santino Rice, Daniel Franco, and Guadalupe Vidal.
