BravoCon 2022: The Newest Season Of Project Runway Is Set To Be The Most Iconic Yet

"Project Runway" has been a fashionable staple series since 2004, and the series has recently hit a new milestone; Season 19's finalists were all women for the first time in the show's history, per Bravo.

On the show's panel at 2022 BravoCon, designer Christian Siriano, who won the competition in 2007, teased what's to come for the series. Siriano took over mentorship on the series in 2018, along with its new host, model Karlie Kloss, after the departure of long-time host Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn. This original pairing moved on to host "Making the Cut" on Amazon Prime, while Kloss later turned over hosting duties after hosting for two seasons, per Deadline

On the BravoCon panel alongside one of the series' current judges, Elaine Welteroth, the former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, Christian Siriano shared his perspective from competing on the show. "I was 20 years old, I knew nothing," he said — the designer remains the show's youngest winner, per People. "Any designer that goes in with like nothing to lose, in a way, are the best because they just go right in," he assured the audience.

The show's renewal for Season 20 — with its current judges, Welteroth, Elle's editor-in-chief Nina Garcia, and designer Brandon Maxwell — comes with even more exciting news from Siriano and Welteroth. The pair gave fans plenty to look forward to at the "Project Runway of Their World" panel at BravoCon.

This season will see the return of familiar faces

One judge teased some of the changes afoot for Season 20 of "Project Runway," per People. "Right here, right now, you're going to be the first to know that this is an all-star season," Elaine Welteroth told the audience at the BravoCon panel. "This is an ALL-STARS SEASON ... And it's so good," she added, according to a reporter for The List.

Welteroth also explained some of the elements behind the show's enduring appeal and loyal fan-base. "You watch because you get a taste of that creative process," she said, according to a reporter from The List. She also told the audience, "Talent can come from literally anywhere."

"Project Runway" alum and previous winner Christian Siriano also shared that for the all-stars season, "We found designers from Season 1," via People. He also teased contestants coming back from Season 3 and 4. "We even have a designer from my season," he dished. "Which will be really interesting because I'm the boss."

The "Project Runway" panel also included Paige DeSorbo from "Southern Charm," "Real Housewives of Dubai" cast member Chanel Ayan, former Atlanta "Housewives" cast member and "America's Next Top Model" winner Eva Marcille, former Beverly Hills "Housewives" star Teddi Mellencamp, designer and "The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills" star Dorit Kemsley, and "Family Karma" star Bali Chainani.
