A Glimmer of Hope for Season Six

If things go as they have in the past, we should have the Project Runway Season Six Finale fashion show on Friday, February 20th at 9:00 AM.

As of this minute the official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week site has not yet posted the schedule, and yet we have persistent rumors that "Project Runway" will be there.

Last night at the YMA Fashion Scholarship Event, Tim Gunn told The Cut that the show would go on. Stay tuned....

Edited to add: Sorry for any confusion - here is the text of "The Cut" article:

Not much has happened with the Project Runway lawsuits lately. We still don't know which network the show will wind up on or when the sixth season, which was shot in L.A., will make airwaves. But the production team is plowing ahead as scheduled. Tim Gunn told us at the Geoffrey Beene YMA Fashion Scholarship Dinner at the Marriot Marquis last night that Runway is scheduled to film at Fashion Week on Friday, February 20. "I'm making my home visits to the finalists starting on Sunday," Gunn added. "It's an incredible season. It really is. And I just want people to see it. And I want the designers on the show to get the exposure." Us too.
