Former Project Runway star and fashion designer Chris March died of a heart attack Friday.

He had been in and out of the hospital over the past year.

Though March had been experiencing medical complications since taking a severe fall in 2017, the episode came as a surprise to his family and doctors.

Last July, March gave a positive update to ET about his health journey. The designer fell and hit his head in his apartment, where he passed out and laid unconscious for the following four days, according to a statement he released to Entertainment Weekly past year. I woke up and called 911 and somehow got to the hospital.

A GoFundMe was created on the designer's behalf to cover his mounting financial and medical bills. Following his hospitalization, March entered a nursing facility. "The coma lasted about 2 months", March wrote in a statement. I had a wound on my right leg. "Where I am now is unbearable and makes me anxious and depressed every day". The emcee of the show was Tim Gunn of Project Runway and he came up to me afterwards and said that I should try out.

Tight end Jimmy Graham was able to haul in the touchdown off what was kind of an off-balanced, sidearm toss from Rodgers. I don't have a play call for third-and-40. "Now you're just trying to flip the field and do whatever you can".

According to sources close to Chris' family, the fashion designer died Thursday afternoon at his home from an apparent heart attack.

"There is a long road of physical therapy ahead of me", March continued. I ended up being paralyzed in both legs from the knees down. I am trying to get my tracheotomy removed, and I try my best to effect positive change in this facility for myself and all the residents here.

The California native first appeared on Season 4 of Project Runway, in addition to his own Bravo series, Mad Fashion, later on that put his over-the-top and avant garde creations - and lovable persona - at the forefront. He designed for everyone from Beyoncé, Gaga, Madonna, Meryl, Prince and many legendary downtown drag queens (And Sonja Morgan!). He also made costumes for Cirque du Soleil and a number of Broadway productions.

Andy Cohen, who previously had tweeted about March's GoFundMe, took to Instagram to post about March's death, remembering the bubbly designer for his "big booming laugh; he was a joy and delight".
