At the NYC Marie Claire party honoring Project Runway judge Nina Garcia, OK! got a firsthand peek at the changes hitting the show for it’s sixth season, including a move across country, to L.A.!

"We’re in L.A.! What could be more exciting about that?" Garcia told OK! exclusively.  "I think you’ll see a Hollywood-celebrity angle."

Set to begin airing in January, 2009, the show’s jump to the West Coast isn’t the only change audiences will see this season.  The show will move from the Bravo Network to the Lifetime Network and will feature the designers confronting new challenges.

"We do have some new twists and things for them [designers]," says show creator Heidi Klum.  "The look will change a little bit; The style of the room and the runway, where they work, their house, the way they live together.  The gist of the show will stay the same, but they [designers] will make it different."


And expect a lot more celebrity judges!

"We will have a lot of celebrities on," Heidi tells OK! exclusively.  "A lot of people know more about the show that didn’t in the beginning.  So we do have more people who call now and want to be on the show, versus before."
