Project_Runway_Under_the_Gunn_3Hosted by Tim Gunn with Guest Judge JAIMIE ALEXANDER

Lifetime’s newest fashion competition series, Project Runway: Under the Gunn (#UnderTheGunn), will be “making it work” the Marvel way this Thursday, April 3rd at 9 PM ET/PT as Tim Gunn presents the remaining contestants with a ready-to-wear challenge that ask the designers to create a look inspired by some of Marvel Comic’s most iconic heroes.

Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Falcon, Hawkeye, The Guardians of the Galaxy and many more Marvel heroes will be the muses for these exceptional looks to come down the runway this Thursday at 9 PM ET/PT on Lifetime.

The series’ Emmy® Award-winning host Tim Gunn selected three past Project Runway luminaries, Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos, to each lead a group of designers to fashion stardom. They will have to nurture and inspire their band of hopefuls week-after-week to ensure their designers’ looks impress the program’s judges and this week’s guest mentor will be Marvel’s own Cort Lane, VP, Animation Development and Production.

When asked why the Marvel Universe is a perfect inspiration for fashion Lane said, “Our characters are dramatic, visually exciting and rich with story – and isn’t high fashion all of those things? I got to spend so much time explaining the Marvel characters to the designers – each one of them found something really relatable and inspiring about a Marvel hero.”

This episode of Project Runway: Under the Gunn will feature guest judge – Lady Sif herself – Jaimie Alexander (Thor, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
