Project Runway favorite Chris March is reportedly battling serious health issues stemming from an incident that occurred last June.
A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to help cover the costs of March’s ongoing medical care and assisted living facility.
According to the GoFundMe page, the out fashion and costume designer “suffered a debilitating accident and had to be placed in a medically induced coma where he stayed for many weeks. Thanks to the miracle of modern science he has pulled through, but is still in a very fragile state.”
“His right arm has been paralyzed and at this moment he has limited use of his hands and legs,” March’s crowdfunding plea continues. “In addition, he’s dealing with respiratory issues that demand constant care. With skyrocketing medical bills, his health insurance has maxed out and he’s in desperate need of continuous physical therapy in order to get back on track.”
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen shared the GoFundMe campaign, tweeting, “Chris March, the lovable, wonderful, talented alum of Bravo’s Project Runway and Mad Fashion is in bad shape and needs our help with his medical care. Anything you can give to help is appreciated.”

“Every day Chris keeps getting stronger, but he’s got a long recovery road ahead,” writes friend Nelson Caraballo. “We want Chris March to continue making us giggle with his infectious laugh, incredible outfits, unexpected outrages, and most of all his out-of-this-world wigs, all of which make us always feel fabulous!”
March competed on the fourth seasons of Project Runway and Project Runway All-Stars. His own Bravo series, Mad Fashion, aired in 2011.
March’s celebrity clients have included Madonna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Meryl Streep. He memorably collaborated with Target in 2013 on a Halloween wig line.
