The American model Karlie Kloss succeeds Heidi Klum as the presenter of the American fashion program Project Runway. 

The program, which is broadcast in the Netherlands by RTL under the name Project Catwalk, goes into the seventeenth season. The sixteen seasons before that, Klum was the face of the show. 

Kloss says via Instagram “that she can not wait until it is so far”. 

In the program, Kloss assists aspiring designers who dream of their own fashion label and catwalk shows. With her own experience on the catwalk for large fashion houses and lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret, she knows how stressful it can go in the business.

Besides being a presenter, Kloss is also one of the executive producers. “I grew up with Project Runway, so it’s great to be able to present and produce this show now and it’s hugely exciting to help young, up-and-coming talent realize their dreams,” Kloss said.
