Project Runway Australia – Filming Has Started, Victorian Designers Revealed
Filming has started on the third season of Project Runway Australia in Melbourne. The Herald Sun reports they were filming at historic Ripponlea Homestead.
Megan Gale will be hosting the series for the first time taking over from Kristy Hinze. Also Henry Roth has been flicked for Alex Perry as mentor. I am still not sure what I think about that as I was a big fan of Henry’s. Alex Perry has a quick wit but not a lot of warmth, that both Tim Gunn and Henry Roth have.
There has been no other news on who the judges will be this season with rumours there will be a lot of changes.
The article also revealed the four Victorian contestants. They are Claire Hocking, Craig Braybrook, Matcho Suba and Gabrielle Stephens.
A quick Google revealed the following about the four:
- Craig Braybrook – appears to be a wedding gown designer (see Australian Brides);
- Claire Hocking – I cannot find anything except for a kinesiologist so maybe she is wanting a career change;
- Matcho Suba – Looks extremely interesting if this blog is anything to go by, he must be here on a visa, he is from Serbia and studied in London; and
- came up with nothing on Gabrielle Stephens.
So if anyone has any further information on these contestants contact me.
