We’ve been enjoying Season One of “Mad Fashion” on BRAVO. The show follows the exploits of “Project Runway” alum Chris March and his crew as they create eccentric pieces for his star clients.
Tonight’s episode features celebs Angela and Vanessa Simmons, both being fitted by March for an upcoming event. Before the episode, which airs at 8 PM on Bravo, we caught up with the designer to see what dressing the Simmons sisters was like.
Check out our exclusive Q&A with March about the sisters below!
