BPR Interview with Benjamin Mach
Project Runway All-Star designer, Benjamin Mach, talks about his experience on the show.
BPR: When did you live in London and what did you do there?
BM: I lived in London for about 10 years, I was about 24 or 25 when I moved there. I had a wonderful time. I actually worked at some of the fabric stores in Soho that we visited. I also worked for Marchesa when they were in their start-up phase and I worked for a luxury menswear line. This was some of the best experience that I had in the industry. We showed in Paris twice a year. I also went on tour with Cliff Richard, who is like the Elvis Presley of the UK. I did all of the costumes for one of his tours. I had a great time.
BPR: So, you knew Georgina Chapman?
BM: I met Georgina and her business partner, Karen, in London, in one of the fabric stores where I worked. I was kind of mesmerized by them and we began to talk. I let them know that I was available to help and that's how it all began.
BPR: Who is your best friend from the cast?
BM: It is interesting. Going in I felt closest to those from my own season, but I actually became very close with Helen Castillo. I am having coffee with her later today.
