Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn Are Leaving ‘Project Runway’ for a New Fashion Reality Show
It’s the end of a reality TV era. Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are set to exit Project Runway when the show moves back to its original home on Bravo, and will instead develop, produce, and host a new fashion reality series for Amazon.
“After 16 incredible seasons, I am saying ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ to Project Runway, a show that I was honored to host and help create,” Klum said in a statement to Deadline. “I am incredibly proud of the show, and it will always have a special place in my heart. I am so appreciative of the dedicated fans, and most of all, I am grateful that we could shine a light on creativity and help launch so many talented designers’ careers.”
Gunn echoed his longtime co-host’s sentiments, praising the young designers and thanking the fans for their support. “I am grateful to Project Runway for putting me on a path I never, in my wildest dreams, thought my career would take me,” he said.
So far, not much is known about the pair’s new series, but a press release stated that it will “continue Klum and Gunn’s 14-year relationship and a commitment to making fashion accessible to a wide audience.” Additionally, Amazon Fashion will work with the show to make it a “shoppable experience” for viewers.
Klum and Gunn have been on Project Runway for 16 seasons, during which time they have been nominated for six Best Reality Host Emmy Awards (including a nod this year).
“I’m most excited that my journey with my dear friend and colleague, Tim Gunn, is far from over,” Klum continued in her statement. “We’re excited for everyone to see what we’re designing next!”
