If you grew up in the 80’s, chances are you watched Jim Henson’s musical puppet show, Fraggle Rock. Dr. Romanelli did a collaboration with Fraggle Rock which includes sweaters and t-shirts as well as a cute interactive website where you can hear the Fraggle Rock theme song remixed by peeps such as Mike Posner and DJ Skeet Skeet. A couple of weeks ago I went to the DRx X Fraggle Rock launch party at Kitson to support my friend Nathan Cabrera who is the talented designer behind DRx. I was even able to get an exclusive interview with a FRAGGLE.

Adorable little Doozers inhabited the windows of Kitson …
Special guest of the evening, Red, came all the way from Fraggle Rock to celebrate the launch with us and she was kind enough to answer some of my VERY difficult questions…
+ Hi! I’m Marie nice to meet you!
+ So what do you like to wear every day? Is it the same thing?
I pretty much like to wear a red shirt most of the time.
+ If you could wear anything else what would it be?
I think some of these shirts here look pretty fun. I would love to wear one of these. Do they make them in my size?
+ Haha yes! I think they make them in your size for sure! Is your favorite color Red?
+ Hahaha good answer!
Yes I gotta admit, it’s red you know.
+ Do you have a favorite fashion designer?
Ooh gosh…Well…there was a designer in Fraggle Rock but you probably haven’t heard of her so I need to learn more about the silly creature designers.
+ Sounds good…mystery is good.
::Red laughs (at me)::
+ Do you have any favorite places you like to go on vacation??
Ooooh well I like to go to the Crystal Cavern and uh, let’s see well I always like to hang around the Fraggle Pond but I still need to explore more of outer space to find out what you silly creatures like to do around here.
