From a media release:
Canwest Broadcasting confirmed today the return of Supermodel Iman as Host of Project Runway Canada.
An internationally-recognized glamour and style icon, Iman brings back her keen sense of fashion and savvy business know-how to guide a brand new roster of budding Canadian designers. Along with series mentor, Brian Bailey and a panel of industry experts, Iman leads the team on its way to give one exceptionally talented designer the opportunity of a lifetime.
An all-new season of Project Runway Canada makes its Global Television debut this coming January 2009.
“Iman is equally blessed with natural elegance, stunning beauty, sharp wit and intelligence – the perfect combination for Project Runway Canada,” said Karen Gelbart, SVP, Lifestyle Content, Canwest Broadcasting. “For these reasons and so many more, we’re extremely excited to have her back as the series Host, providing our designers and viewers with a unique insight into the world of fashion that only she can offer.”
This season, the rigorous application process did nothing to discourage an impressive number of talented designers from sending in their submissions. As a result, Project Runway Canada is guaranteed to feature the most ambitious and creative fashionistas ready to share their designs with fans nationwide.
“Once again, we are blown away by the sheer caliber of emerging fashion designers in this country,” says John Brunton, Executive Producer. “We are thrilled to offer a platform for such gifted artists to showcase their designs.”
