‘Project Runway All-Star’ Helen Castillo Designs Jumpsuit for Blue Man Group

DOWNTOWN BLUES: For the first time in 27 years, the Blue Man Group is adding a new item to their wardrobe. “Project Runway All-Star” Helen Castillo has created a jumpsuit for the three performance artists and, unlike their stage makeup, the design is not entirely blue.
Raised in New York, the designer attended an arts magnet middle school and subsequently saw her share of traditional Broadway shows. “Kids at school would always boast about their parents or the ‘cool aunt’ taking them to see this show.

Varvatos to Dress Hockey Greats for NHL All-Star Weekend

John Varvatos is a self-professed hockey junkie. One of his most cherished memories is when the Detroit Red Wings presented him with a hockey sweater on the ice last year after he opened a store in his hometown. “They welcomed me back and the coolest part is that they let me pick the jersey number, so I picked nine for Gordie Howe who was one of my heroes growing up,” he said.
Varvatos will show his love for hockey once again this weekend during the National Hockey League’s run-up to the All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Varvatos has collaborated with the league for TheNHL100, a black-tie gala Friday night that will honor the 100 greatest players of all time. Each of the players will receive a customized blazer created by Varvatos.
“About 70 of them are still living,” the designer said. So he had his Italian factory create made-to-measure black wool and mohair-blend jackets for each honoree that includes TheNHL100 logo on the breast pocket and the player’s name embroidered on the interior. “They’re really one of a kind,” he said.
The project comes at a time when Varvatos is rejiggering his business to adapt to the tough retail climate.
