Project Runway Winner Trades In Fabric For Lettuce

New York (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Talk about a clothes call: This Friday (June 2), there will be a fashion show in New York City where the models will be wearing lettuce instead of lace.

That’s because the fashion show is being sponsored by Wish-bone Salad Spritzers salad dressings, so all the designers are required to create outfits completely out of vegetables.

One of the veggie couture specialists who is making the outfits is Jay McCarroll, who won the first season of the reality show, Project Runway.

He’s designed two outfits for the salad shindig, including a dress that features rows of tomatoes, onions and tomatoes.

As he puts it, “It’s kind of a street wear, garden theme.”

McCarroll also vegged out on a green sweater covered with cherry tomatoes that is both ready-to-wear and ready to eat.

Although the event is sponsored by Wish-bone, luckily, the designers weren’t required to spray salad dressing onto their creations because, as McCarroll points out, it would turn them into a “sloppy mess.” Instead the bottles were incorporated into the creations as everything from headphones and iPods.
