TVNZ announces first group of Project Runway New Zealand designers
Seven of Project Runway New Zealand’s designers can now be revealed!
From a rugby player; to a stay-at-home mum; to a previous farm-hand, these designers come from all walks of life with one goal: to win TVNZ 2’s Project Runway New Zealand.
The first announced group of designers are:
Beth Hornsby-Hunt, 31, Fashion Student from Auckland
Caitlin Crisp, 22, Retail Assistant from Christchurch
Kerry Ranginui, 33, Pattern Maker from Whanganui
Lenon Wakuwa, 27, Caregiver from Invercargill
Massey Williams, 38, Alternative Education Tutor and Mentor from Christchurch
Nicole Schmidt, 28, Stay at home Mother from Hawke’s Bay
Peni Moala, 29, Retail Assistant from Arrowtown
All seven bring a unique design aesthetic into the competition. Whether it’s taxidermied ducklings or floaty and feminine dresses and blouses, Kiwis won’t be disappointed with the quality (or the drama!) delivered each week.
With seven yet-to-be-announced designers to add into the mix, every Monday night Project Runway NZ will task all 14 with meeting a brief and creating something to wow the judges. If their garment fails to meet the brief, they risk being eliminated from the competition.
Who will win and who will walk?

The final seven designers will be announced Sunday 16th September, before the series premiere on Monday 1st October, 7:30PM on TVNZ 2.
