Auditions: Project Runway Australia

Calling all designers wanting to make a big splash.

Foxtel is now taking applications for Project Runway Australia, the local version of the US reality series.

Head of Entertainment, Graham Burrells, said: “Ambitious fashion designers across the country should ready their needles and thimbles to show us their raw talent and personality. Experience will be a factor but is certainly not vital. We are interested in designers of all levels of experience – be it the inspired youngster straight out of school or industry veteran with 20 years experience.”

The series produced by FremantleMedia and hosted by Kristy Hinze will air mid-2008.

Meanwhile Arena has a repeat of the third US season at 9:30pm Mondays and will launch the 4th in April.
