It’s that time, fellow Runway fans. This Thursday, January 5 is the premiere of Project Runway All Stars! Austin Scarlett, Sweet P, Mondo Guerra, Kara Janx and more of our favorite designers are back for another shot at fashion fame.
Friends are gathering at my house to celebrate this new season of Runway with a cookie fashion show. Instead of fifteen minutes at Mood, we’ll each have have icings and sprinkles and candies to create cookie couture.
Call your friends over and plan your own Cookie Runway. The local supermarket is baking up a batch of gingerbread people and plain sugar cookies for us to decorate. If you have time, by all means bake up a cookie recipe. Just make it work! (And if All Star mentor, Joanna Coles, actually says, “Make it work,” everyone has to have a shot of icing).
You can choose a theme (evening, sportswear, lingerie…) but in the spririt of the season premiere, we’re asking competitors to create a piece expressing their distinct cookie design vision.
The prize? A beautiful, frosting- and sprinkle-covered cookie is its own reward! Unlike fashion, cookies are always in.
***SPOILER ALERT*** I’ll be sending menswear down the runway. A beachy variation on the resort wear seen on my holiday gingerbread man above.
