Heidi Klum who? Yes, that’s right people Lerato Kganyago has been named the new host for South Africa’s very first season of Project Runway SA.
Fearlessly high on trend, Lerato Kganyago is the go-getting former Miss Soweto, television talk show host, presenter, DJ, entrepreneur and actress who scooped this year’s SAFTA for Best TV Presenter and stole the hearts of everyone at Project Runway SA.
She says “It feels as though it’s the perfect time for me to percolate my previous experience and expertise into a brand new vehicle. I’m looking forward to instilling that knowledge in the contestants as they embark on this exciting journey and to being part of the trailblazing production that’s giving emerging design talent the time to shine. There is something gratifying about helping uncover the new fashion stars of tomorrow, and giving them the platform to show South Africa what they’re made of!”
As Project Runway SA’s host, Lerato will be leading South African audiences through the adventures, dramas and stories as they unfold onscreen; she’s the one who will be heading Noni Gasa and Rahim Rawjee as the panel of expert judges; and while she’s the one who will be eliminating contestants at the end of each episode, she’s also the one who will be nurturing their talent alongside Project Runway SA’s mentor Gert-Johan Coetzee.
“I am going to be encouraging the designers to cut out the noise and to follow their inner voice”, says Lerato.
We can’t wait to see what she has to offer us on screen.
