For the first time in 27 years, the unmistakable Blue Man Group (still playing nightly downtown at the Astor Place Theatre and seen by more than 35 million people worldwide), will be adding a new piece to their authentically 90’s underground/East Village wardrobe.
And the designer set to deliver it is none other than Project Runway All-Star Helen Castillo. This unexpected but perfectly matched collaboration marries Helen’s love of the new trending 90’s fashion with the iconic Blue Man Group’s mission to “dare to live in full color.” The result is a limited edition unisex jumpsuit (sketch below) that will be unveiled during Helen’s September 9th fashion show and then be exclusively available on her website.
In 1991 the New York Times wrote: Blue Man Group’s simple approach to complex ideas illustrates their happy, populist belief that creativity is not some mysterious godlike gift but everyone’s right. And Helen’s vision more than brings to life our universal desire to get creative, get messy and have fun.
