NBC Press Tour Winter ’19! Project Runway Back On Bravo – All The Secrets You Need To Know!By Delaina Dixon | January 29, 2019 | Entertainment
Hello Divas. DivaGalsDaily has returned to TV Winter Press Tour! We’re enjoying the sunny weather in Pasenda, Calif., and getting all the tea on Project Runway, which has returned to its home network, Bravo.
This upcoming reboot has a new runway, a new workroom, fast fashion challenges and looks that can be bought in flash sales right after the broadcast. And the prize for the last designer standing is over $250,000.
Runway winner and designer for all sizes and body Christian Siriano is the new series mentor. He’s looking forward to giving competitors real feedback, designer to designer. The models include full-figured, African-American women and the first transgender model.
Joining the judging panel is Elaine Welteroth, former EIC of Teen Vogue, who is excited for the show’s level of diversity.
“This is the most inclusive iteration ever seen,” Elaine shared during the panel. “It’s the most diverse cast and most diverse designers. People are coming from all over the world.” She added that the stories being told are about human ambition. “We all need a reason to laugh, smile cheer someone on and come together.”
Elaine also adds that the show will address tough issues like the lack of women and people of color in the fashion industry, as well as women’s empowerment via the #metoo movement. If you recall, Project Runway was last produced by the defunct Weinstein Company. “We do not shy away from those conversations,” Elaine surmised.
We can’t wait! Project Runway, the Bravo reboot, returns March 14 on Bravo.
