“Project Runway” Season 15 is set to premiere next month, and the official list of contestants has already been released.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, judge Zac Posen expressed his excitement over the new installment.
“Season 15 is going to be a historic season. Get ready – get ready for great talent, get ready for a wild ride on that sewing machine,” he said.
Meanwhile, “Project Runway” host and judge Heidi Klum also weighed in on why she thinks the reality TV show still seems new and fresh considering it’s been on air for 14 seasons. The supermodel said that audiences don’t get tired of watching every season because even though the concept remains the same, the slew of contestants and what they can bring to the table is always different.
“The concept is the same but the people are different, the challenges are different, and our guest judges are different – and they always bring something great to the table, too,” Klum said.
In other news, a slew of guest judges have also been confirmed to grace the “Project Runway” stage for Season 15. This includes “The Vampire Diaries” alum Nina Dobrev, “Hart of Dixie” alum Jaime King, “Girl Meets World” star Sabrina Carpenter and “Quantico” lead star Priyanka Chopra. Other judges from the modeling world include “Project Runway Junior” judge Kelly Osbourne, Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider and model Lucky Blue Smith.
