Celebrity Cruises has partnered with “Project Runway,” the competition show for aspiring fashion designers, and company President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo will appear on the program Aug. 20.

Celebrity is providing one of the prizes for this season’s winning designer. The winner and their guest will win a Celebrity cruise almost anywhere in the world in the spa-inspired AquaClass accommodations.

“Our partnership with Project Runway is the perfect fit — at the core of both of our brands are innovative, big and bold ideas that never have been seen before in our industries,” Lutoff-Perlo said. “We would love to welcome (co-hosts and judges) Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and Tim Gunn onboard our ships in the future!”

Season 14 opens at 9 p.m. ET/PT Aug. 6 on Lifetime with 16 designers competing in grueling challenges.

The episode airing Aug. 20 will feature Lutoff-Perlo as a special guest. The episode has already filmed but Celebrity said further details and visuals are being kept under wraps, due to the nature of the show.

“It is incredibly exciting to finally share the news, even more so as the first cruise company to ever collaborate with the popular series,” Lutoff-Perlo said. “We hope everyone will join us in watching the highly anticipated episode, in which the Project Runway team continues the search for the next big fashion designer.”
