Supermodel Karlie Kloss will host and executive produce the popular fashion reality show, while fashion designer Christian Siriano will mentor the contestants.
Elle editor-in-chief Nina Garcia will return as a judge, along with fashion designer Brandon Maxwell and journalist and former Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth.

Kloss and Siriano (who won the show’s fourth season) will replace Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, who left the show for a new fashion-related reality show at Amazon.
“Project Runway” will return to its original home on Bravo after a stint on Lifetime. The series is currently in pre-production and will premiere in 2019.
“As someone who grew up watching Project Runway, I could not be more excited to host and produce a series that provides a platform to aspiring American designers as they pursue their creative and entrepreneurial dreams,” said Kloss. JB
