Project Runway royalty Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn announce their departure from the popular TV show.
After 16 seasons of the successful fashion design reality show, the pair decided it’s time to move on and create something a little bit different. Klum and Gunn have announced that they will be developing a project for Amazon Studios. Klum has announced that their new show will have a global scope by featuring fashion designers from all over the world, instead of just those from the United States.
In a release, Amazon announced that the new show will see Klum and Gunn’s continued “commitment to making fashion accessible to a wide audience”, as the show will also feature an interactive element; viewers will be able to purchase clothes designed on the show in Amazon’s fashion store.
Despite losing two of their hosts, Project Runway will be back for Season 17. The show, which originally aired on Bravo in 2004 and moved to Lifetime in 2009, will be moving back to Bravo where they hope it will get a new lease on life.
“We are beyond excited to reboot Project Runway at the network where it all began. Leaning into the creative process in an entertaining way has always been part of Bravo’s DNA, and Project Runway perfectly captures that,” Frances Berwick, President Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said in a statement last month.
While their hasn’t been any word on when the new show will be available on Amazon, fans of fashion, Klum and Gunn are eagerly waiting for any updates.
We hope to see them “make it work!”. Are you looking forward to the pair’s new project?
