In Conversation with Georgia Fowler: VS Supermodel and host of Project Runway New Zealand

. Monday, 1 October 2018 .



I don't know about you, but I've been missing the good ol' days of sitting down in front of the TV to watch a show that you're completely devoted to. Netflix and chill is great and all, but I miss the excitement of watching an episode of your favourite show only for it to end on a major cliffhanger! Do you remember that feeling? The anticipation for the next week, the 'googling' of spoilers and going on forums to read people's reactions. Those were the days, man.




When I found out that Project Runway was coming to our shores for the first time ever, I knew this was my chance to get into TV again. I grew up watching Project Runway. I think I was about 13 years old when it first came out. A High School freshman in an all-girls school in Manila, I lived for fashion and dreamed of being part of that world someday! Unfortunately I quickly learnt that I couldn't sew for shit. Ah, well. I have other skills.




Anyway, back to Project Runway New Zealand...




I came along to the launch party at TVNZ a few weeks ago and got a taste of what was to come. I got to see some of their garments IRL, meet the designers, and got to know them a little bit before the show aired. Needless to say, I am invested AF. So for Season 1 of Project Runway NZ I'll be doing a recap of each episodes, doing some interviews, and live tweeting #projectrunwaynz. But before all of that, let's kick things off with a quick chat with Project Runway New Zealand host, Georgia Fowler.




It's safe to say that Georgia Fowler is definitely having a moment (well, lots and lots of moments. Homegirl is a powerhouse!) A staple in international fashion weeks, Georgia has modelled for all the big guns from Victoria’s Secret, TopShop, Chanel, Yeezy and Armani. Project Runway is her first foray into the glamorous world of TV hosting.




How was the overall experience filming a TV series for the first time?




I absolutely loved filming Project Runway. Though it was such a new challenge for me (most of my jobs have me be seen and not heard), it was incredible to be surrounded by such talented contestants, and judges alike. I feel very blessed.




What are you looking for judging-wise?




A talented designer who would stand out on global scale and fit in at fashion weeks around the world.




What was the most important advice you offered the designers?




I tried to encourage the designers to stick to their strengths and stay true to their brand. I wanted the designers to be brave and trust their instincts to create a cohesive look that was exciting enough to be a runway piece, but alone would fly off the racks.


What can we look forward to?




I think the viewers will be mostly really impressed by the high level of talent amongst the designers, and hopefully slightly entertained by the judges’ chat.


What did you find the most challenging?




The judges don’t know which garment belongs to which designer during the runway show. I surprisingly found it hard to say, “an anonymous runway show!” Try it, it’s quite the tongue twister!

  1. This is the best function room in the city. The food they served at event space Chicago was warm, fresh and tasty, and the panoramic window is a sight to behold on a clear day. Their main hall was similar to a club/lounge – however, it had more of an intimate feel.
