:: Spotlight :: Project Runway hits Australian TV screens

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

In an Australian television first, high-profile model Heidi Klum hosts ARENA TV’s Emmy-nominated Project Runway, premiering on Saturday, January 21 at 7.30pm.

This exciting new series gives twelve talented and hungry fashion designers the opportunity of a lifetime - a chance to have their own fashion line shown in front of the global fashion community in New York and displayed in the pages of US Elle magazine. The second series of Project Runway recently premiered in the US to the highest series premiere ever for a Wednesday night in the history of Bravo TV (part of NBC entertainment).

Executive produced by Heidi Klum and Hollywood movie giants Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Project Runway also stars top international designer Michael Kors as a judge, with special guest judges appearing throughout the series.

Heidi Klum is the star of the fashion world and makes headlines daily around the globe - for Project Runway being the most successful production ever on Bravo TV (NBC Entertainment), her first post-pregnancy fashion parade for Victoria's Secret recently, a new baby boy Henry to husband Seal (and brother to her 2 year old daughter Leni to Flavio Briatore), an endorsement portfolio including Birkenstock, jeweller Mouawad (available in Sydney through Nader Jewellers), her own fragrance, lifestyle book, clothing, accessories, beauty and candy lines, or her famous covers for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, ID, W, Cosmo, Glamour, Allure, GQ and Mademoiselle.

In addition, Heidi has appeared in campaigns for H&M, Nike, American Express, Target, Liz Claiborne, Siemens, Givenchy, Finesse, Braun (for which her legs were insured for over $2 million!), Caress, Lancaster, INC, Nine West and the prestigious Pirelli calendar, among others.

Watch for PROJECT RUNWAY, premiering Saturday January 21 at 7.30pm through the FOXTEL, AUSTAR, and OPTUS pay TV networks. The show will air until mid-April.
