Condolence & Memory Journal

I bought the white 2010 Oscar gown Chris designed for Meryl Streep at auction some time ago. I collect historical items of all kinds and from all eras, and this wonderful gown is among the highlights of my collection. Chris, I wish that I had had the opportunity of meeting you. Rest assured that your creation is in good hands.

I loved his sense of humor and zest for life! His episodes on Project Runway were some of my favorites. I also enjoyed his other show. I was unaware of his tragic accident in 2017 and the long term struggles he endured to get his life back. May he rest in peace and condolences to his family. May fond memories warm your heart like they do mine. He will be missed.
