Which Game Show Inspires Chris March’s Mad Fashion?

Love Chris March‘s wild designs on Project Runway and Mad Fashion? He gets it from his mama — seriously.

In the final segment of this week’s Media Beat interview, the fashion designer and reality TV star explains how the fashion bug first bit him as a child while watching his mother take sewing lessons. And when Mama March landed a spot on a particular game show, it was a wrap — young Chris officially had a niche.

“My mother was on Let’s Make a Deal when I was little, and so I was always fascinated with Let’s Make a Deal and all the people in their costumes,” March said. “And the bigger and crazier ones always got more attention so… Gee I wonder where that comes from.”
