Chris Harrison to design clothing line
'Bachelor' host credits series with helping him hone his style skills
"Bachelor" host Chris Harrison has inked a deal to create his own clothing line. The affable host of ABC's hit dating show has been the show's rose master for the past 25 seasons over 10 years. And during every rose ceremony, Harrison is always dressed to the nines in sharp suits.
Now, Harrison tells People magazine that he is planning to partner with clothing designer friend Christopher Wicks to create a line called Chris Harrison Collection by Da Vinci. He explains, "I think there's a huge market there for guys like me, who aren't going to be wearing the ridiculous Ed Hardy stuff. We're too old for that garbage. But at the same time, we don't want to look like a slouch. I like dressing up. But at the same time, I want to go pick up my kids from school and not look like a goofball."
Harrison credits the "Bachelor" franchise with helping him hone his style skills and adds, "People come up to me saying, 'Dude, I like what you wear, I like what you're doing.' So I'm like, 'Hey, let's do our own line.'" No word on when his collection will hit retail stores, but he confirms he will be wearing some of his own designs on the next season of "The Bachelorette."
"The Bachelor" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
