NBCUniversal's Bluprint Launches PROJECT RUNWAY Extension Series

Calling all fashionistas! Bluprint - NBCUniversal's state-of-the-art digital lifestyle learning platform and streaming service - will launch two original online series celebrating "Bravo's Project Runway." On March 14th, the premiere of the Bluprint companion series titled "Runway Remake," will launch on the Bluprint platform in conjunction with the premiere of the iconic Bravo franchise "Project Runway." Bluprint's digital series, which will also be available on an all-new mobile app, will draw from the trends and out-of-the-box designs on the adored hit television series and inspire Bluprint subscribers to learn how to re-create their favorite fashion-forward runway looks at home.

Hosted by Mondo Guerra, runner up from "Project Runway" Season 8 and winner of "Project Runway All Stars," Bluprint will introduce nine original episodes that bring the flagship series to life in an accessible way for devoted fans at home. Top Bluprint instructors - including actress/sewist Marcy Harriell, sculptor/interior designer James Worsham, as well as master crafter Jo Gick from NBC's "Making It" - will interpret real "Project Runway" design challenges in their own respected crafts and tutorials, resulting in chic DIY projects.

Bluprint is one of the prizing sponsors and the official DIY partner for Bravo's "Project Runway." The wining designer will receive the largest prize in the show's history - $250,000 furnished by the Pilot's FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen - a feature in ELLE, and $50,000 to put toward his or her own design studio, courtesy of Bluprint, in addition to his or her own Bluprint digital series. Plus, for the first time ever, "Project Runway" is partnering with one of the most prestigious organizations in fashion, the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), for a one-on-one mentorship including all the tools and connections to create, grow, and sustain a business in fashion.

Timed to the "Runway Remake" series, Bluprint will also debut a new mobile app to elevate the full consumer experience. The app will offer an improved user platform - compatible across multiple devices - and provide easy access to class materials, such as those needed for "Runway Remake." Along with the app launch, there will be a 24-hour, free "sneak peek" available to all users. Soon a "capture function" will be integrated, allowing users to take or upload a photo of what inspires them, such as fashion looks from the runway, and the app will curate content on how to make similar projects on Bluprint.

Also on March 14, in celebration of "Project Runway," Bluprint is relaunching their Bluprint Sewing Box for the season as the "Project Runway Sewing Box" to inspire fashionistas to create their own runway looks. The "Project Runway Sewing Box" will include all of the tools, patterns and notions needed to get started. Apart from Sewing, Bluprint Boxes also come in eight additional varieties including Quilt, Knit, Cake, Embroider, Crochet, Watercolor, Colored Pencil and Drawing.

With the "Runway Remake" series, MAKERS at all levels will be able to follow along and hone in on their own creative pursuits, guided by Bluprint's world-class experts. Apart from series host Mondo Guerra, featured talent includes: NBC's "Making It" contestant and crafter extraordinaire Jo Gick; DIY tastemakers Mimi G and Norris Dánta Ford; Actress, sewist and host of Bluprint's Re: Fashion and Suit Up! DIY DC Comics Super Heroes Costumes series, Marcy Harriell; Fashion designer, illustrator and judge of Bluprint's Doodle Wars, Zoe Hong; Handy Dandy Productions designer James Worsham; Embroiderer at Namaste Hand Embroidery, Jessica Long; Creative entrepreneur Ellie Lum; and Host of Bluprint's The Midnight Quilt Show, Angela Walters.
