Project Runway has moved to Los Angelas and Lifetime Network. With the move comes an new set and best of all for the designers, new machines! Host Heidi Klum told People at a Marie Claire party held to welcome judge Nina Garcia to her new post at the magazine, “A lot of times they were always complaining about how bad the equipment was because they were in a real school, but we have some really killer, stellar new things for them so they can’t be complaining about that anymore.”
The move to L.A has also brought about other changes such as a scaled up set and Heidi told People that the look of the set will change a little bit and will be a little bit bigger as they now have more space. She stated, “The look will change a little bit; The style of the room and the runway, where they work, their house, the way they live together.”
Don’t worry all you die hard Runway fans, the essence of the show is going to remain the same and Heidi commented, “The gist of the show will remain the same, as well as the judges, and the only difference where people come in will be the designers, they will make it different!
Watch for more celebrity judges this season as well as Heidi told OK!, “A lot of people know more about the show that didn’t in the beginning. So we do have more people who call now and want to be on the show, versus before.”
The new season of Project Runway will air on Lifetime in January 2009!
