Sources say auditions held two weeks ago at the downtown Standard Hotel had a record low turnout. Because lines were not very long, production staff members were "scrambling" to contact more up-and-coming designers to show up.

As the incomparable Tim Gunn would tell them:"Make it work!" Perhaps the fear of being "auf'ed" by Season 3 winner Jeffrey Sebelia, who was a judge during this weekend's session, kept all the wannabe Donatellas and Gallianos away.

Other Project Runway alumni were spotted at the session, including Season 2's Nick Verreos and Santino Rice. Despite the L.A. faux pas, the new season of the highly addictive reality show is scheduled to premiere this summer.
