It's official: Today is Project Runway Day in New York. At 11:30 AM, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will help the city rename the strip of Seventh Avenue at 39th Street "Project Runway Avenue." (The name change is only temporary.) Joining them will be city officials, fashion industry insiders and past and present Models of the Runway and Project Runway contestants—including Sweet P, Malan Breton, and more. We'll report back later today on the festivities. And don't forget that the new Project Runway season starts tomorrow night—which means our Top Ten Moments of Project Runway Greatness returns on Friday. That's the new cast, at right. [Racked]
