Project Runway is returning to New York for its 7th Season and that calls for a celebration! What will NYC do to celebrate? Rename a street, of course!

Tim Gunn and Nina Garcia will be joining city officials and fashion industry representatives at a street-naming ceremony.

The event will occur in front of the iconic "Needle Threading a Button" sculpture in NYC's Fashion District, where Fashion Avenue will be temporarily renamed, "Project Runway Avenue."
