Project Runway is an American reality television series that focuses on fashion design. The contestants compete with each other to create the best clothes and are restricted by time, materials and theme. Their designs are judged by a panel, and one or more designers are typically eliminated from the show each week. During each season, contestants are progressively eliminated until only a few contestants remain. These finalists prepare complete fashion collections for New York Fashion Week. After the runway shows, the judges choose the winner.

Project Runway was created by Eli Holzman and was hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum from 2004 to 2017. It has a varied airing history, with Bravo originating the first five seasons, followed by Lifetime for eleven more. In the wake of The Weinstein Company's bankruptcy in 2018, the show then returned to Bravo. Klum and the designers' mentor Tim Gunn both left the show in 2018 in order to helm another fashion competition show, Making the Cut on Amazon Video. American model Karlie Kloss followed Klum as the new host, with Season 4 winner Christian Siriano replacing Gunn as mentor.

The show won a Peabody Award in 2008 "for using the 'television reality contest' genre to engage, inform, enlighten and entertain." It has had over 30 international adaptations.
