Fashion Designer, Zac Posen, has confirmed last night on twitter that he is indeed a new judge on season 11′s Project Runway.
Zac Posen is replacing Michael Kors. Kors however is slated to return as a guest judge for the season finale, according to a statement released by Lifetime TV – which states that the amicable departure was due to scheduling issues. Kors has been a fixture on the show since its launch in 2004. Zac later tweets about the big seat he has to fill.
Show host Heidi Klum showed her support to the newcomer, while simultaneously praising the departing judge, Tweeting: “Welcome Zac! I will miss you this season my brother Michael Kors. I love you!”
The 11th season of Project Runway will air on January 24 in the US.
