Think you've got the chops to be the next Christian Siriano? If so, you'll be glad to hear Project Runway is currently casting Chicago designers for season 13.As usual, designers on the show will be competing for a chance to show at New York Fashion Week and for a cash prize to expand or launch their own line. We're sure you'll also get to hear the wonderful Tim Gunn say "make it work" at least once.
Join the ranks of Chicago contestants like Katelyn Penkoke and Steven Rosengard by submitting your application here by September 9. Those selected will then be invited to a closed casting call in Chicago sometime between September 15 and October 15. Good luck, designers!—Shelby Blitz
