Bravo has announced supermodel and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss will serve as host of the series and be joined by former Project Runway champion and fashion designer Christian Siriano as the mentor.

In addition to Karlie -- who will also serve as an executive producer -- and Christian, the Project Runway revival will also feature the following judges: Returning judge and ELLE editor-in-chief Nina Garcia as well as newcomers Brandon Maxwell, a fashion designer, and Elaine Welteroth, a journalist and former Teen Vogue editor-in-chief.

"As someone who grew up watching Project Runway, I could not be more excited to host and produce a series that provides a platform to aspiring American designers as they pursue their creative and entrepreneurial dreams," Karlie said in a statement.

"I am equally as thrilled to work alongside an incredibly talented group of fashion innovators -- Brandon Maxwell, Elaine Welteroth, Nina Garcia and Christian Siriano -- to inspire, support and help guide these designers as they realize their visions and build everlasting brands and businesses."

The series is currently in pre-production and will premiere in 2019.

And Christian said of Project Runway's revival, "[The show] has offered such wonderful opportunities for so many and I'm excited to take on this role as a mentor. I hope to guide and inspire the new talent on the rise."

Bravo executive Shari Levine called the new team "trailblazers with tremendous reach inside and outside the fashion industry," who will "reenergize the franchise" along with Bravo and its producing partners, Magical Elves and Lantern Entertainment.

The network launched Project Runway in 2004 and aired it through 2008 before Lifetime obtained it in a high-profile, five-year deal.

Bravo announced in May that Project Runway would be coming back to its original home on the network for Season 17 after being on Lifetime for the past 10 years.

Nina has lended her expertise as a judge on Project Runway for all 16 of its previous seasons. The reboot, however, will miss fellow original Runway members Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.
