That's a wrap! Season 8 of Lifetime's "Project Runway" is coming to an end tonight as the second part of the season finale airs on DISH Network at 9:00 PM ET/PT. After a drama packed season full of sewing machines, tears, runway shows and Michael Kors' endless count of black shirts, three aspiring fashion designers will duke it out on the runway as they showcase their individual collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York - every hopeful designer's dream. With an impressive winner's package that includes $100,000 from Loreal Paris, a fashion spread in Marie Claire and $50,000 from HP Intel, the stakes are high tonight as to who will be awarded the title of another talented "Project Runway" winner. The season finale should be anything but boring seeing as the three remaining designers' collections each have a totally unique and distinct style. "Bossy" Gretchen Jones from Portland, Oregon started off strong at the beginning of the season with her urban sportswear looks inspired by her hippie roots. Gretchen's main competitor tonight will most likely be judges' favorite, mod designer Mondo from Denver, CO, because of his impeccable craftsmanship and editorial looks he has produced on the runway week after week. Andy is the third and youngest designer to round out the competition at just 23 years old from Hawaii. Andy's Asian-inspired, well tailored and "warrior woman" designs are sure to be a contender in tonight's finale. From the looks of the preview for tonight's finale, it seems that the judges, infamous designer Michael Kors, Marie ClaireFashion Director Nina Garcia and international supermodel Heidi Klum, are at odds with one another as to who will be the show's winner and entitled to the grandiose prize money to help launch his/her first line. If you're unable to catch tonight's show, make sure to check your DISH Network programming guide, set your DISH DVR, and definitely don't go online if you're looking to avoid a spoiler.
