'Project Runway': Meet the new designers
Fortunately, several of the names of this season's contestants are kind of awesome. The designers include people named Mondo, Peach and Casanova -- and the latter, a 33-year-old who lives in Queens, goes by just the one name.
Mondo Guerra, meanwhile, is a 36-year-old from Denver, and Peach Carr -- which puts us in the mind of a pinkish-orange Caddy -- is the contest's oldest contestant at age 50. She's from Lake Forest, Ill.
For surviving a season's worth of 90-minute episodes, the winner will get $100,00 to start a fashion line, a spread in Marie Claire magazine, a $50,000 technology suite from HP and Intel and the chance to sell a collection on Piperlime.com.
Meet the new designers.
Season 8 of "Project Runway" debuts at 9 p.m. ET July 29 on Lifetime.
