Celebrity ceo Lutoff-Perlo to appear on 'Project Runway'

Lisa Lutoff-Perlo - Celebrity's partnership with 'Project Runway' is 'the perfect fit'
Celebrity Cruises has become the Emmy-nominated 'Project Runway' series’ first cruise line partner. An episode airing Aug. 20 will feature special guest Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and ceo of Celebrity, alongside co-host, mentor and Emmy Award-winner Tim Gunn.

Viewers can watch fashion design contestants compete in a special challenge on the journey to becoming the next winner of 'Project Runway.'

Celebrity also is providing one of the prizes for this season’s winning designer. The winner and a guest will be able to vacation almost anywhere in the world on a Celebrity cruise in the brand’s spa-inspired AquaClass accommodations.

'Our partnership with Project Runway is the perfect fit. At the core of both of our brands are innovative, big and bold ideas that never have been seen before in our industries,' Lutoff-Perlo said.

She added: 'We would love to welcome Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and Tim Gunn on board our ships in the future.'

Season 14 opens with 16 designers competing through grueling design-focused tasks and challenges. The season's winner will receive many prizes in addition to a Celebrity cruise. Season 14 of 'Project Runway' premieres Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
