After five seasons, there are plenty of changes in store for the next go-around for reality hit Project Runway. In addition to the previously announced move from NYC to L.A., and from Bravo to Lifetime, OK! has learned that the show will be taking its magazine partnership away from Elle, who has featured all the previous Runway winners’ work in its pages, and moving to Marie Claire.
The change in masthead shouldn’t come as too huge of a shock — Runway judge (and former Elle fashion director) Nina Garcia recently made the same move herself when she was named Fashion Director for Marie Claire.

OK! caught up with Nina at a Marie Claire party on Thursday to celebrate her joining the magazine, and the opinionated fashionista was just gushing with good things to say about her new gig. "I’m very excited about Marie Claire," she told OK!. "It’s a magazine that is deeply passionate about women’s issues. It offers practical, yet beautiful fashion. That ties very much into my philosophy, my books. It’s the perfect match."
The two-part finale for the current season of Project Runway airs Oct. 8 and 15 on Bravo.
