Bursting onto the scene in Season 12 in 2013, Castillo went on to compete in Season 4 of Project Runway All Stars to critical acclaim. Now she’s bringing her talents to the iconic look of Blue Man Group. It’s been more than 25 years – 27, to be exact! – since the blue men have changed their look. Castillo was inspired to refresh the look of Blue Man Group after attending a show in New York City. Now she’s created a limited-edition unisex white jumpsuit for the performers to wear on stage, which includes a tuxedo stripe and pocket flaps.

Blue Man Group made a stir at Fashion Week in New York when they debuted their new threads to a star-studded audience. Now you can see the new look for yourself: Get tickets to the show at Astor Place Theater – seats start at only $55!
