A new season of Project Runway premieres tonight, and there’s a whole lot to be excited about. With Michael Kors signing off and Zac Posen in, we can expect a fresh new feel to the show.

Season 11 is sure to bring more fabulous guest appearances by fashion A-listers after last season upped the ante with Katie Holmes’ cameo — plus, more of the drama, style and Heidi-isms that have made the show a hit.

“Ten years has produced ten talented casts and racks of fashion eye candy!” says David Zyla, Emmy Award-winning stylist and author of Color Your Style.

With ten seasons and a successful spinoff, Project Runway All Stars, under its belt, it’s hard to remember what life was like pre-Project Runway. The fashion reality series has come a long way since its first season, when the designers, limited to items that they bought in a grocery store, fashioned looks made out of everything from crawfish and candy to aluminum foil and flat bread. Amazing.

So as we countdown to tonight’s premiere, we’re looking back at some of the fashionable highlights from the past ten seasons of Project Runway.

Who can forget the Season One supermarket challenge and the cornhusk cocktail dress created by Austin Scarlett? Season Two brought another difficult challenge using only materials from Manhattan’s flower district. This round was mastered by Daniel Vosovic and his beautiful flower dress.

Also of note: Season Four wunderkind Christian Siriano and Chris March’s avant garde off-white ruffled gown, as well as Korto Momolu’s seat-belt dress, a highlight of Season Five.

We all have our favorite episodes of Project Runway lore — Santino Rice’s pitch perfect impressions of Tim Gunn (“Andre, you really embarrassed me tonight at Red Lobster!”) and Austin Scarlett’s corn-fed innovation are up there for us.

See the rest of our favorite moments from the past ten seasons of Project Runway.
