Project Runway Australia – New Judges Revealed
Project Runway Australia are making changes this year. Firstly it will be shown on Fox 8 and not Arena. Also there will be new host Megan Gale.
Also they have cleaned out all the other talent as well. Henry Roth, Sarah Gale and Jayson Brundson will no longer be seen on our screens, they have been replaced by Alex Perry, Jarrad Clark and Kirrily Johnston.
Kirrily Johnston is a fashion designer based in Sydney see her website here.
Jarrad Clark is IMG Director of Global production, and he is based in New York.
The Herald Sun states:
Mentor Alex Perry has promised to tone down his famed antics for the series, which pits designers against one another in the workroom and on the catwalk.
“I hope what I have got to say is firm but fair,” Johnston said.
With one episode in the can, Clark said he was looking forward to what the designers, including four from Victoria, come up with next.
“There are a few standouts,” he said.
“I think there could always be a bit of tension. That is the pressure chamber they are in.”
The Victorian contestants have been revealed (see blog post here). I am still trying to find out if they have released the other contestants names.
This show should be one of the standout Australian productions of the year.
