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.”

But that’s not all!

NYC & Company will also present a NYC Proclamation deeming Wednesday, Jan. 13 as Project Runway Day in honor of the show’s contribution to NYC’s fashion industry.

The premiere of Project Runway Season 7 airs on Thursday, Jan. 14 on Lifetime Television.
