She’s one of our most successful modelling exports who has walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway for the past two years. Georgia Fowler has announced that she will be hosting the first season of Project Runway New Zealand, following the footsteps of fellow Angel and host of the American version, Heidi Klum.
Georgia Fowler heads up Project Runway
Georgia will lead the charge as host and head judge in the local version of the hit reality series.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be coming home to be part of the very first season of Project Runway New Zealand. 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.”
Project Runway New Zealand will see ambitious designers compete in front of a yet-unknown panel of industry judges. Each week, designers compete against one another in a series of demanding challenges that test resourcefulness and creativity. At the end of every episode, after sending their creation down the catwalk, one competitor – determined by Georgia and the judging panel – will face elimination.
The final challenge sees the few remaining designers tasked to create a full collection, which ultimately decides who will be crowned champion of the runway.
Georgia grew up between New Zealand and Australia and was discovered at age 12 while accompanying her older sister to a casting at a local modelling agency. She received her first break walking in the 2012 Chanel show in Versailles, and since then has made international runway appearances for designers such as Chanel, Victoria’s Secret, Miu Miu and Jeremy Scott.
Georgia has also appeared in leading fashion magazines Vogue Italia, W Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, Cosmopolitan, to name a few, while featuring in campaigns for H&M, Diesel, Banana Republic, Agent Provocateur, GAP, Victoria’s Secret, amongst many other top brands.
