Project Runway Vietnam all set to begin

VTV3 will air the Vietnamese version of US fashion-design reality show Project Runway from May 11.

The 12 finalists will live together during the competition.

The jury for the first season comprises designer Nguyen Cong Tri, journalist Tran Nguyen Thien Huong, and mentor Tung Leo. Actress Truong Ngoc Anh will host the show.

The winner will get a cash prize of VND500 million, a scholarship to go to Atelier Chardon Savard, a leading French fashion school, and a chance to present their collection at the New York Couture Fashion Week in September.

The coronation will take place on July 6.

Project Runway, which premiered in 2004, sees contestants try to create the best clothes, but with restrictions on time, material, and theme.

Celebrity judges whittle out contestants every week.
