Nina Garcia moves to Marie Claire magazine, which may replace Elle on Project Runway 6

One of Project Runway‘s marquee sponsors may also be out once the show moves to Lifetime in November, but that may be good news for judge Nina Garcia, whose future on the show was slightly uncertain after she was fired from Elle.

Elle “is contracted to the reality show through its fifth season, the last on the Bravo network,” and “Marie Claire is expressing an interest in participating. Such a partnership is ripe for synergy: Marie Claire is published by Hearst Magazines, whose parent company jointly owns Lifetime with The Walt Disney Co.,” WWD reported earlier this week.

Now, Nina Garcia “is about to land a major gig at Marie Claire,” Fashion Week Daily reports. It notes that, “given the new partnership between the magazine and Project Runway, [this] would ensure her continued presence on the show.”
