Two established versions of "Project Runway" and a new teen-designer version are running this way. Lifetime's "Project Runway Junior" is set to premiere this fall with 14- to 17-year-old fledgling fashion designers and co-hosted by franchise maven Tim Gunn and model Hannah Davis. Designer Christian Siriano and fashion editor Aya Kanai are principal judges. Production takes place this summer in New York. Meanwhile, Season 14 of the flagship "Project Runway" premieres Aug. 6, and "Project Runway All Stars" Season 5 is scheduled for early next year.
