There’s a “Project Runway” spinoff coming our way, and it’s all about accessories.
The Weinstein Co. and Lifetime reportedly threw a cocktail party for upcoming series “Project Accessory” in Manhattan on Wednesday, reports the New York Post.
The series isn’t expected to premiere until later this year or in early 2012, but when it does, Wednesday's gathering is expected to be part of the show.
According to The Project Runway Blog, the new show “will follow enterprising artists who will be put to the test to create the newest and hottest trends in accessories as they compete for a cash grand prize to help them launch their own fashion accessories business.”
So it’s “Project Runway,” but focusing on handbags, jewelry and belts instead of dresses, tops and pants.
Casting calls for the new show were held in June.
Catch the current season (nine) of “Project Runway” on Lifetime, Thursdays at 9/8c. "Project Runway All Stars" will premiere later this year.
Do you think Lifetime can “make it work” with accessories?
