Designer Chris March on Life After 'Project Runway'
Chris March, that big, lovable teddy bear known for his fantastic designs -- and ability to sleep through any challenge -- is hard at work after making a name for himself on "Project Runway."
"I am filming a pilot about me and my crazy workshop at the end of this month," he tells StyleList. "Kind of like 'Ace of Cakes,' only in the fashion/costume world."
Also on his plate: "I Heart Chris March," which is, in his words, a "coffee table book of photography of my costume and fashion designs from the last 25 years," he says. Full of gorgeous, colorful spreads; it's available for pre-order now for $42 at ChrisMarchDesign.com (ships mid-November).
He also dished to StyleList about "Project Runway." Of all his co-contestants, he's closest with Sweet P. "We just did that 'Project Runway All-Stars' show together." And he thinks Althea is "carving out a place as a front-runner" this season.
"I like Louise, although I think they will label her too vintage and costumey to win," he says. "I think that for all the changes -- on Lifetime, Los Angeles, etc. -- the show has made a pretty seamless transition. 'PR' addicts are happy once more!"
