HCM CITY (VNS) — The creativity and passion of 14 young fashion design hopefuls will be on show every Saturday night from December 19 on Viet Nam Television.
Chosen from more than 1,000 contestants in the 2015 Project Runway Viet Nam, they will live together for the reality show under close supervision of judges while filming.
The jury this year comprises model and actress Truong Ngoc Anh, host and designer Nguyen Cong Tri, journalist Tran Nguyen Thien Huong and mentor Tung Leo.
Like in previous seasons' qualification rounds, participants were required to perform several skills to show their basic understanding of fashion design including sketching of designs, cutting of fabric, and sewing.
One of the contestants, Ha Thi Thong, is disabled, while Le Chau Kha, Le Minh Tuan Phuong, and Tran Nguyen Anh Minh are already fashion designers.
This is the third season of Project Runway, and will air on VTV3 at 8pm.
The winner will get a two-year work contract worth VND300 million (US$14,227) and the chance to study at Paris Atelier Chardon Savard.
In the first two seasons the programme unearthed two talents — Hoang Minh Ha and Ly Giam Tien — who have achieved popularity even abroad.
First aired in the US in 2004, Project Runway has since been produced and broadcast in more than 100 countries, attracting millions of viewers.
The programme was brought to Viet Nam by Multimedia JSC. — VNS
