RE­VEALED: The new host of Project Run­way

Herald on Sunday - - NEWS - By Ri­cardo Simich

Kiwi su­per­model Ge­or­gia Fowler, 25, is set to in­crease the glam fac­tor on Project Run­way New Zealand as host of the TVNZ 2 show.

The show’s pro­duc­tion team are cast­ing up to 16 de­sign­ers for the se­ries, as well as hunt­ing for judges to join Fowler on the fash­ion panel.

A TVNZ spokes­woman said ap­pli­ca­tions from fash­ion hope­fuls had come from all over the world, in­clud­ing de­sign­ers from Aus­tralia, the Philip­pines and Zim­babwe, as well as New Zealand.

“We couldn’t be more de­lighted about the emerg­ing tal­ent that is com­ing through in the ap­pli­ca­tions,” the spokes­woman said.

“We’ve had peo­ple from all walks of life, lev­els of ex­per­tise, and from all parts of the world.

“The range of in­cred­i­ble tal­ent that we’re see­ing is in­dica­tive of some out­ra­geous looks pre­dicted to be walk­ing our run­way.

“To have Ge­or­gia, a su­per­star Kiwi model, con­firmed as the host is an ab­so­lute coup in our eyes. It will no doubt el­e­vate this lo­cal se­ries on to an in­ter­na­tional play­ing field, which is ex­cep­tion­ally ex­cit­ing for the de­sign­ers who make it on to the show.”

Fowler has be­come a star in the past year, in­clud­ing glitzy Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret shows.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be com­ing home to be part of the very first sea­son of Project Run­way,” Fowler said.

“To help launch the ca­reer of a Kiwi de­signer, while giv­ing peo­ple a glimpse into the world of fash­ion, is be­yond ex­cit­ing.

“Haere ra, New York — and see you soon, Auck­land.”

The show will be filmed in Auck­land later this year. Cast­ing is still open for de­sign­ers. Go to the TVNZ web­site.
